FIFA 19 February Title Update Includes Gameplay Improvements

EA Sports has released its latest title update for FIFA 19, and players should notice that the gameplay should be different, especially when it comes to controlling goalkeepers.

FIFA 19 February Title Update

One of the major changes is that EA has reduced the speed of goalkeepers when being controlled by users during open play. In addition, a bug that caused users to switch players without a change being requested has been patched.

Here are the full notes for the February title update:


Made the following changes:

  • Further reduced the speed of the goalkeeper when being controlled by manual movement during open play.
    • This change builds further on the change that was made in Title Update 7.

Addressed the following issues:

  • Players were sometimes swapping positions on the pitch without any changes being requested by the controlling player.

FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT):

Addressed the following issues:

  • Sometimes, in a FUT Online Match, a players OVR rating would be displayed in the Player Performance screen incorrectly.
    • This had no impact on gameplay and was a visual issue only.


Addressed the following issues:

  • In Pro Clubs, when playing with your Virtual Pro locked to the CAM position, they would sometimes be treated like a LB in terms of positioning and player rating.

This update is currently available on PC, and will be out shortly for Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
