Madden NFL 25 Ultimate Team players on Xbox 360 and PS3 will be able to get a head-start with their Xbox One and PS4 experience by transferring items to the next-gen versions, EA has announced.

Players will have the opportunity to transfer up to 1,100 Madden Ultimate Team items from current-gen onto next-gen consoles, giving you a head-start in building your squad.

Log into Madden NFL 25 on next-gen consoles with an Origin Account and respective Xbox LIVE or Sony Entertainment Network account and you'll be able to bring over 100 active items (55 players, 45 additional items) as well as up to 1000 reserve items from your game on current generation systems.

These players and items can still be used in the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game as well, but cannot be auctioned or traded.

In addition, Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition players who participate in this offer will be granted six Madden Ultimate Team All Pro packs for use in their Ultimate Team on next-gen consoles.

Madden NFL 25 will be released August 30, with PS4 and Xbox One versions coming later this year.

EA is offering similar Ultimate Team transfers for FIFA 14.
