FIFA 19 Patch 1.05 Available For Xbox One, PS4 & PC - Patch Notes Here

FIFA 19 game update 1.05 is available now for PC users and scheduled to arrive next week for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The patch features improvements to gameplay, specifically AI teammates defending, AI teammate defender shot blocking, AI teammate tackling and defensive pressure.

UPDATE: (11-28) The patch is available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

It also includes some changes in FUT and 18 new player heads. There are also a number of legacy starheads returning in FIFA 19. These starheads have existed in previous titles and are now being added to FIFA 19 after player transfers.

Check out the patch notes below, along with more details on the official page.

Gameplay:

Made the following changes:

  • We have made some changes to reduce the effectiveness of defending by AI Teammates.
    • In order to make the shot blocking of a defender that is being controlled by an AI Teammate less effective, we have reduced the distance that an AI Teammate defender will stretch to block a shot.
    • In order to make the tackling of a defender that is being controlled by an AI Teammate less effective, we have reduced the distance that an AI Teammate defender will stretch when making a tackle.
      • Here is what we mean by an “AI Teammate”.
        • An AI Teammate is any player on the pitch that is not being controlled by a human, or is not the CPU AI Controlled Player.
        • AI Teammates exist in the following circumstances:
          • On a team with no human players.
            • For example, the CPU-controlled team in Squad Battles.
          • On a team with a human controlled player(s) that are not locked to specific players.
            • For example, both teams in FUT Division Rivals.
          • On a team with a human player(s) that are locked to specific players, that also has CPU teammates.
            • For example, a Pro Clubs team with less than 11 human players.
        • AI Teammates do not exist in the following circumstances:
          • On a team with human players who are all locked to specific players.
            • For example, a Pro Clubs team, with 11 human players.
  • Increased the impact to fatigue of playing with defensive pressure.
    • This change will have the biggest impact to fatigue when playing with Constant Pressure enabled in your active Game Plan or when playing with Team Press active.
    • This change will have reduced impact to fatigue when playing with Pressure On Heavy Touch or Pressure After Possession Loss enabled in your active Game Plan.
  • To make a well-timed tackle more effective, we have increased the tendency of the ball to travel further from the dribbler after the tackle, increasing the likelihood that the dribbler will lose possession of the ball.
  • Reduced the number of first time passes that CPU AI Controlled players will make out of their defensive third of the pitch when playing on Legendary or Ultimate difficulty.
    • A refresher on what we mean by “CPU AI Controlled players”.
      • The CPU plays the game as you would, limited by the same input restrictions that a human player is.
      • This means that the CPU team has an active player, just like you do, which we call the CPU AI-controlled player.
      • A CPU AI-controlled player exists in the following circumstances:
        • On a team with no human players.
          • For example, the CPU-controlled team in Squad Battles.
        • On a team with human players who are all locked to specific players, that also has CPU teammates.
          • For example, a Pro Clubs team, with less than 11 human players, with no “ANY” player.
      • A CPU AI-controlled player does not exist in the following circumstances:
        • On a team with human players who are not locked to specific players.
          • For example, a team in FUT Champions.

Addressed the following issues:

  • Sometimes when an attacking player is trying to move towards a loose ball close to the goal, they would slow down and be unable to get to the ball effectively.
  • If the keeper knocked the ball out of play during a penalty shootout, sometimes it would result in a throw-in being taken.

FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT):

Made the following changes:

  • We have continued to make changes to the Division Rivals pre-match flow in an effort to reduce the difficulty of some players finding a match.
    • The ‘List Members’ button is no longer shown during the pre-match flow.
  • Voice chat has been disabled in Division Rivals.

Addressed the following issues:

  • Stability issue in FUT Champions Channel after watching a replay.
    • As a result of this fix, the following issues that were resolved in a previous title update may occur again, and we are working to resolve them in a future title update when available.
      • Sometimes, player models were appearing in the background after exiting a match.
      • Sometimes, a white box would appear in the background after exiting a match.
  • Entering and leaving FUT Champions Channel multiple times would result in no replays being available for viewing.
  • The FUT Champions Points redemption window was incorrectly defaulting to ‘Redeem Entry Now’ and is now defaulting to ‘Later’.
  • Items on your Transfer Target list were displaying the Bought For price from the previous Item’s owner.

Online Modes:

Addressed the following issues:

  • Sometimes receiving an error message about online stats reporting failing after completion of a Pro Clubs League or Drop-In Match.

Kick Off:

Addressed the following issues:

  • Player’s sometimes getting an ‘Unable To Retrieve Your Kick Off Name’s Data’ error message when trying to play a Kick Off match.

Visual / Presentation:

Made the following changes:

  • Starheads:
    • Added the assets for 18 new player starheads.

  1. So maybe I shouldn’t have any expectation that they’ll increase the number of CM save slots or do anything with the kits beyond marginal updates?

    I knew it was foolish to expect a single mention of the f word (fouls), but I still had silly hope.
    Yeah really. Right now it's a soccer game with rugby rules. You can basically get run over and no foul will be called.
    Does EA know that a large number of goals are scored off free kick set pieces?

    I'm able to draw fouls against the CPU, I just rarely commit any because the tackle buttons are so useless.
    I'm not sure how I feel about the AI defender stuff.  I'm all for competent AI, especially on defense, but I can admit that currently my teammates are frequently winning balls on their own.  The fatigue tweaks are much needed, hopefully they work as intended.
    Patch seems to play a lot better in my opinion I must admit I was close to giving up this year was really not enjoying it at all but patch 1.4 may have revived my interest a little. I am still enjoying PES more this year

    Haven't played many games but it does feel better to me too. Attacking play is more fluid and I didn't have near as many tackles go back to the CPU. On the other hand, the CPU defenses are so open, some of the goals I'm scoring feel pretty cheap. Wing play especially is just so easy to exploit.
    Still, enjoyed the few matches I played more than any I'd played in the last week.

    Why do you think tackling buttons are useless? I use them all the time. (Well, not really slide tackling, but standing tackling I use regularly.)

    Apparently not. Its ridiculous honestly. One of their staff admitted to seeing the bug and passing it along back at launch but it's been 2 months and multiple updates and still nothing. In Fifa 20 we probably will only have 1 save slot if the mode is even in that game. They might just get rid of it and rename it Fifa FUT 20 since that's all they pay any attention to.
    FIFA 19 has been an absolute disaster. I'm STILL waiting to start a Career Mode. They can't seem to get anything right when it comes to squad updates and face scans. Screwed up some stuff again, last night.
    FIFA 19 should be mentioned in the same breath as Fallout 76, it is an utter garbage game. I love football with a passion, and this game has been going down hill for several years, but this has got to be the absolute nadir for this series. Utter trash gameplay, a completely broken career mode and now a lagging job from the the licensing and presentation team which has been FIFA saving grace for years. I have completed a grand total of 12 games and I have not had a single shooting or penalty foul called at all. I cannot win any contested headers, I used to love manual passing, but now it's total garbage ruined by the auto-switch and manipulative move assist system. I hate this game and this company with a passion!

    This is just ridiculous. Fallout 76 is a disaster for SO many reasons. FIFA 19 meanwhile arguably plays its best brand of football ever for the franchise.
    Yes, there are issues. But plenty of us are really enjoying the game. To say that this is some type of nadir or that its comparable to Fallout 76 is just pure hyperbole.
