FIFA 19 Title Update #3 Available Now For PC, Xbox One & PS4 - Patch Notes Here

FIFA 19 title update #3 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 shooting, defensive pressure, near post accurate shots and goalkeepers. It also includes some changes in FUT and 50 new player heads (48 players and 2 managers).

UPDATE (11-13) FIFA 19 patch #3 is available now for Xbox One and PS4.

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

Gameplay:

Made the following changes:

  • Adjustments to the effectiveness of first time finesse shots where the incoming ball is coming from behind the shooting player, between 135 and 225 degrees, where 0 degrees is the direction the player is facing.
    • These kicks are now more likely to be impacted by error resulting in potentially less accuracy, ball speed and ball spin.
      • The most significant impact will be seen when the incoming ball angle is 180 degrees, with scaling reduced impact being seen up to an incoming ball angle of 135 degrees and 225 degrees on either side of the player.
  • Adjustments to the impact of defensive pressure on a shooting player:
    • Increased the impact of defensive pressure on a shooting player when it is coming from in front of the shooting player.
    • Reduced the impact of defensive pressure on a shooting player when it is coming from behind the shooting player.
  • Reduced the likelihood that a shot which was correctly aimed into the net, and that was targeting a location near to the post, would miss the net in a shooting situation where the attacking player is under no defensive pressure and is not off balance.
  • When dribbling, players were getting pushed off the ball too easily in situations where the defending player was approaching the attacking player from the side. The attacking player will now be slightly more effective at holding the defending player off.
    • The effect of this change will scale based on the strength of the attacking player, with stronger players seeing the greatest effect from this change.
  • Some adjustments to the speed by which an attacking player, who has just lost the ball to a successful tackle, is able to recover the ball.
  • A minor reduction to the acceleration of a player that has executed the Open Up Fake Shot skill move.
  • When playing in an Online match, you will now be able to see the Timed Finishing indicators for your opponent.
    • This only applies to a shot that would generate a Very Early (red), Early (yellow) or Great (green) shot, it will not apply for Late (gray) shots, or any shot where the player didn’t attempt to use Timed Finishing.

Addressed the following issues:

  • Sometimes, when trying to execute a low driven shot, the player was executing a chip shot instead.
  • Improvements in situations where a player that was in a better position to win a header was losing it due to the other player warping in front of them.
  • Addressed some issues where player switching was late, or was not happening, when defending against an aerial ball.
  • When performing a first time thigh trap, the player receiving the ball was slowing down too much after making the trap.
  • Keepers were sometimes kicking the ball forward when moving towards it instead of picking it up.
  • Keepers were rarely not diving to intercept the ball after a cross was made into the box and the ball was close to the keeper.
  • Keepers were sometimes not reacting to a penalty kick that was shot directly at them or very near them.
  • Keepers were sometimes hitting a powered up first time lob pass too soft and low, potentially resulting in the opposing team getting the ball.
  • In a penalty kick situation during a match, if the player taking the penalty kick hit the post directly, without the keeper touching it, they were able to play the ball again before another player touched it.
  • User controlled players were able to push the keeper out of the way in a free kick situation.
    • Keepers are now more difficult to move.
    • If a keeper is moved, they will now attempt to return to their original position after being moved.
    • An offside will be called if an attacking player is interfering with the keeper during a free kick while in an offside position.
    • Defenders will no longer follow their mark into the goal and potentially cause interference with their keeper.
  • In the rare instance where the ball was heading towards an open net, and the attacking user was pressing the Cancel controls, an offside attacking player would still try to attack the ball, causing an offside call and the goal being called back.
  • Paul Pogba was performing the incorrect run up animation when taking a long free kick.

FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT):

Made the following changes:

  • We have made changes to the Division Rivals pre-match flow in an effort to reduce the difficulty of some players finding a match.
    • Your team will now always be displayed on the left side, and your opponent will always be displayed on the right side, regardless of which team is Home or Away, on the following screens:
      • Team Select screen.
      • Kit Select screen.
      • Match Preview screen.
    • On the Kit Select screen, both teams will now default to the kit assigned as their Home Kit.
    • When on the Team Management screen, your team’s crest will be displayed on the right side of the screen.
  • We have made the following changes to Roles section of Dynamic Tactics within FUT:
    • When using the Auto-Assign Player Roles button, the impact of chemistry on a player’s attributes will now be taken into consideration when assigning players.
    • When attributes are being displayed on this screen, the impact of chemistry on those attributes will also be shown when viewing this screen in the FUT Squad screen.
      • We have hidden the attributes being displayed on this screen when it is accessed during the pre-match flow in all FUT modes due to an issue that we are working to resolve in a future title update when available.
      • When viewing this screen in the Team Management screen via the Pause Menu in a FUT Offline Mode, such as FUT Squad Battles, the attributes will still be showing their values without the impact of chemistry, something we are working to resolve in a future title update when available.

Addressed the following issues:

  • Stability issue in FUT Friendly Seasons if your opponent backs out of the pre-match flow while on the Kit Select screen.
  • Stability issue after watching a FUT Champions Channel replay.
  • When swapping your FUT Squad Manager, the contract percentage bonus provided by the new manager was not applying until the player logged out and logged back into the FUT Servers.
  • The Match Earnings leaderboard sometimes was displaying the incorrect value for some players.
  • One of the Starter Objectives referenced a feature not present in FIFA 19.
  • Stability issue if a player exited and entered the same screen repeatedly.

Career Mode:

Addressed the following issues:

  • When playing as the manager for the Hyundai A-League, you were always being fired after completion of your first match, regardless of the result.
  • Selling a player that had been assigned as a Quick Sub was causing the following issues:
    • When using the associated Team Sheet in a game, players were unable to leave the Team Management screen after entering it through the Pause Menu.
    • Visual issues on the associated Team Sheet when viewed in the Squad Hub.

Visual / Presentation:

Made the following changes:

  • Added the assets for 50 new player and manager starheads.
    • Server side changes are required before these starheads will be available for use in game, please follow @EASPORTSFIFA on Twitter for updates on when these are available.
    • The full list of additions can be found in the Pitch Notes article about this patch, you can find it on https://www.ea.com/games/fifa/fifa-19/pitch-notes
  • Updates to a number of team kits and crests.

Addressed the following issues:

  • The Cockerel displayed in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is now correctly looking to the east.
  • 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.

*Note – The following issue has been identified with this patch, we are working to resolve in a future title update when and if available.

  • During a match, when bringing up the ‘Select Kick Taker’ overlay during a Set Piece situation, it is possible for the attributes of a player to be displayed as over 99.
    • This issue is visual only, the maximum attribute value in terms of gameplay impact is 99.
    • This issue can occur in all non-FUT modes within FIFA 19.
    • This issue would only occur if the player was receiving a form boost that would cause the impacted attribute to exceed 99.

  1. So, for the Premier League: Fabinho, Leno, Jorginho, Torreira, Bernard, Fred, Felipe Anderson, Yarmolenko, Pereira, Maddison, Helder Costa, Adama, Sessegnon, Max Meyer, David Brooks, and Guendouzi were left untouched. All starters or important bench players. They at least need custom faces!

    Don't they usually update the faces for some players on the newly promoted teams. I am not surprised by some the players on the list not having faces like Jorginho, Fabinho and Torreira because never seen them update faces for new players that have transferred into the Premier League in the current season. I will say those guys will for sure be update in the next Fifa though.
    Yeah, they always release scans for the promoted teams, but I saw the list and this year is PATHETIC. Cardiff City, for example got a grand total of 8 real faces. 8. They also managed to scan the wrong Sessegnon brother at Fulham. It’s really bad, man. I was hoping that since they screwed us over and didn’t touch Career Mode that they would make it up to us with face scans or at LEAST some good custom faces, but nope. And apparently, they have a full Bundesliga scan and are not going to release it until FIFA 20. Just going to sit on it and piss everyone off. I’m really at my breaking point with this company.
    is there some way to have those new added faces in career mode without starting new career? It looks like i have all the faces in game but when i load career there are the old ones (and because i play as Wolves, it means most of the team).
    Any way to do it? its crazy if not :(

    Nope. Have to download the latest squad update. The new faces are only out on PC, right now. Consoles will probably be next week.
    I only saw one person on these threads touting that there would be a big November update and his sources did not say 'EA' so I was never convinced that there was supposed to be a 'big' update. Just a monthly update which I see for all most sports games released in fall.

    Wasn't it the same guy that announced he sold his copy of the game this morning? :lol:

    Yep. His buddy who worked for EA or was a game changer or some such. Said more than once wait for the big November update. Hmmmmm yeah.

    Yup! He was the only one I heard describing a big November update.
    Those gameplay changes sound promising to me. The biggest issue I've had is the way goals are being scored, which is from headers which seem the AI should not have gotten to, or the quick-turn shot or volley out of nowhere.

    Sounds like some of the players being pushed off the ball too easily (where we start calling the game out for a lack of fouls) might help address that issue too - if it takes more aggression to push a player off the ball then it's more likely to trigger the "level" at which the ref calls it a foul (at least in my head that's how I would expect it to work).

    I was thinking that, also. It sounds like they’re saying more battles/physicality, but we’ll see.
    OMG!!!  When  is this update coming to PS4? Impatiently waiting to start my Career Mode over.  Another question, why do I have to start my CM over to play with the latest update EA?  I don't have this problem in PES.

    The last patch took a couple of weeks to hit on consoles.

    I am not seeing any new faces for Wolves, Fulham or Cardiff players but I see Zaha and Lindgard have been updated.

    Did you have to download a new roster or keep the older ones?

    I have one from last week, when I went to go download a squad update it stated that there wasn't any available at the time.

    I'm hearing others saying the same. Not sure why?
    found a presentation bug I think.
    If I play MLS Tournament and I swap a team in from another league like say Chelsea, when the game starts, the Chelsea logo is not displayed besides the MLS logo in the presentation layout screen.

    Hi, everyone,
    Any changes in gameplay, after last patch?
    Thanks.

    I noticed some very welcome poor hits on volleys and shots in general by the AI—I feel like before the patch they would've been rockets into the corner.
    However, I am playing with a high shot error setting in an effort to reduce the insane number of shots on target.
