PC Keyboard Controls

Madden NFL 21 on PC fully supports the Xbox One Wireless Controller and offers a new control scheme for the keyboard and mouse. By itself, the keyboard can be used to navigate all menus and play the game, with the mouse adding additional control over both menu navigation and gameplay. For gameplay, the mouse controls a “Virtual Thumbstick” (displayed in the UI) that allows for precise control over player movement.

 

For help learning gameplay controls, head to the Skills Trainer. For more control information, check out the Settings menu.
