FIFA 13 has got a new update on the PS3 and EA has released the complete patch notes. It’s not that massive but it fixes connectivity issues and also some things from the career mode.
The update also improves the general game stability and can be termed as something that aims to fix minor things instead of major problems.
The game came out in October and went on to ship 10 million copies. The launch was eventful with servers crashing for a few days but that’s expected since so many people play the game. The career mode usually has received a lot of stability fixes and some random glitches have been fixed as well.
We reviewed the game and liked it a lot, it’s not a major improvement over FIFA 12 but good nonetheless. “What we have is a football game that delivers what fans want, and has enough content and improvements which is vital to be considered as a progressive installment,” wrote our author.
