FIFA 18 update 1.04 out now on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

It should be noted that the patch notes listed below are for PS4 and Xbox One only, the Nintendo Switch version of the game has been given its own specialised patch.

Patch notes for the Nintendo Switch can be found here.

The new FIFA 18 update is the third major console patch and includes nerfs for both ground passes and ground through balls.

Here’s the official breakdown from EA Sports on how this will affect the effectiveness of both pass-styles:

  • Made ground passes and ground through passes less effective when blindly passing the ball between 90 and 270 degrees, where 0 degrees is the direction the player is facing.
  • The most significant impact will be seen when the pass angle is between 140 and 220 degrees.
  • The impact scales when the pass angle is between 90 (least impact) and 139 degrees and between 221 and 270 (least impact) degrees.
  • The passes impacted by this change will see:
  • Reduced ball speed.
  • Reduced accuracy.
  • Disabled user controlled reactions, when locked to a player, when the goalkeeper is holding the ball.
