FIFA 20 update patch notes: Huge new title update makes crucial changes

FIFA 20 has been given a fresh update by EA Sports. The new FIFA 20 title update is a biggie, making changes to everything from FIFA Ultimate Team and Volta Football, to dribbling, shooting and goal kick animations. If you want to see everything that’s been changed in FIFA 20, check out the full list of patch notes below.


• Further increased the impact of the Dribbling responsiveness change introduced in Title Update # 2.

• Increased the responsiveness of dribbling, when not using any dribbling modifiers or skill moves, for players that have an average rating of 80 or higher between the Attributes of Dribbling, Agility, and Balance.

• The effectiveness of this improvement will scale based on the average rating with the least improvement being felt at 80 and the most improvement at 99.

• Increased the effectiveness of easy shots taken inside of the box, from 45 feet/15 yards/13.7 meters and closer to the target.

• These shots are more likely to be on goal and not hit the post or miss the goal.

• The target is the exact location of where the ball is expected to go, determined through a mixture of directional input, and the Shooting Assistance setting.

• Shots taken from very small angles are slightly more likely to be on goal.

• Reduced the maximum amount of time a player can stand at the Kick Off from 30 seconds to 15 seconds.

• Increased speed of Goal Kick pass animations.

• The changes to Goal Kick Pass speed in TU #7 impacted other Set Pieces as well, and the changes were reverted due to community feedback.

• The change in this Title Update only affects Goal Kick pass animations and no other Set Pieces.

• Green Timed Shots are now less impacted by error.

• Adjusted Green Timed shot targets to be more effective.

• When transitioning into a Set Piece, players will have to apply their directional input after the transition in order to perform the Set Piece quickly.

• This change prevents accidentally triggering Set Pieces when holding the directional input and rapidly requesting Pass/Shoot actions during the transition.

• Increased exit speed when Sprinting out of a Strafe Dribble for players that have an average rating of 80 or higher between the Attributes of Dribbling, Agility, and Balance.

• This action can be performed during a Strafe Dribble by Sprinting in a specific direction.

• The exit speed and duration will scale based on the average rating with the least improvement being felt at 80 and the most improvement at 99.
