Today, EA Sports released a patch for FIFA 20, the eighth major title update since the game’s release on September 24.

FIFA 20 TITLE UPDATE #8 

Per EA, here are the key points of the patch notes.

Gameplay (General):

Made the following changes:

  • Adjusted the threshold for when the Referee will give out a Yellow Card following a foul.
    • This change is intended to reduce the amount of Yellow Cards given for minor fouls.
  • Adjusted the Penalty Kick Reticule to be less sensitive when aiming at most areas of the goal.
    • This change does not affect sensitivity when aiming very close to the goalpost.
    • Aiming towards the goalpost has a higher degree of sensitivity compared to other areas of the goal.
  • Increased the maximum shot speed of Free Kicks.

Addressed the following issues:

  • Red-timed Free Kicks were resulting in high shot trajectories, potentially leading to a goal.
    • These shot trajectories are now more likely to be wider, missing the goal.

FUT:

Addressed the following issues:

  • In rare instances, it was not possible to apply Consumables or enter Squad Building Challenges without exiting and re-entering FUT.
  • When adding a player to your Squad from the Club tab, the Chemistry impact was not displaying on the Club tab.
    • When previewing a Player Item in this scenario, Team Chemistry was not updating.
    • Both of these issues were visual only.
  • Inability to search for players with special Romanian characters using standard characters.

Career Mode:

Addressed the following issues:

  • Sometimes, matches were being scheduled with too few or too many days between them.
  • Created Pros in Player Career had 1999 as their date of birth.
    • The date of birth can now be set to 1996 – 2003.
  • The American Challenge Cup trophy art was missing from the competition menu following completion.
  • In Player Career, the Player Accomplishments overlay was sometimes not disappearing after a match.
  • The Press Conference announcer for the French Super Cup was not speaking in French.
  • When using the Arabic languages, Player Portrait OVR ratings were overlapping with other UI elements on the Squad Hub.
  • Adjusted Prospect Player criteria to not include anyone over the age of 23.
  • Updated visuals on the Team Stats tile.

VOLTA FOOTBALL:

Addressed the following issues:

  • In VOLTA STORY and VOLTA WORLD TOUR, when more than one controller was plugged in, there was an instance in which the second controller could play with the whole team despite Control Revvy being a previously selected setting.
