FIFA 15 launched a little while ago, and largely ended up disappointing a whole host of people, if only because of the unexpectedly bizarre AI behavior (especially that of the goalkeepers) as well as issues with the actual game mechanics and physics themselves. Well, EA Sports have apparently been listening, as they just launched a new update for the title that is aimed at most of the issues people raised. It is out now on PC and PlayStation 4 and is scheduled to hit the Xbox One soon.
The full list of improvements that this update brings with it is as follows:
– Adjustments and improvements to shooting and goalkeepers.
– (PS4) Fix for fans experiencing stuttering during online and offline gameplay.
– Added ability to call out the keeper in Pro Clubs.
– Fix for instances where Player Instructions in Seasons mode were not carrying over into gameplay via Team Management.
– Further improvements to Player Search in Career Mode.
– Adjusted Legendary difficulty in gameplay.
– Improvements to Goal Line Technology.
– Fix for match length issues in FIFA Ultimate Team Single Player Seasons matches.
– Updated real-world injuries and suspensions in Match Day Live.
– Improvements to ‘Looking Ahead’ audio in Career.
– Fixes to Player selection in Team Management in multiplayer matches.
– Tuned player specific audio speech in all modes.
– (XB1) Improvements to motion blur effects.
– (XB1) Fix to the display of FIFA Ultimate Team Legend players in the EA SPORTS Football Club widget.
EA promises further fixes and updates to the game and its mechanics based on feedback, but hopefully, this patch should be substantial enough to address at least some of the outstanding issues that people have had with the game.
