FIFA 20 Patch 1.09 Available Now For PC, PlayStation 4 & Xbox One - Patch Notes Here

FIFA 20 game update 1.09 is available now for PC and should be available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 soon. The patch addresses some of the issues found in gameplay, FUT, Career Mode, VOLTA Football and Kickoff mode, along with some visual updates.

UPDATE: (11-27) FIFA 20 patch 1.09 is available now for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The team is also adding some updated star heads, which are scheduled to arrive shortly after an upcoming server update.

Check out the patch notes below.

We’ll update this post when the patch arrives for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Gameplay (General):

Made the following changes:

  • Increased the effectiveness of shots taken 15.24 meters/50 feet or closer to the target.
    • These shots will now be less likely to be impacted by error.
    • The impact of ball velocity and vertical ball velocity on all types of shots inside the box has been reduced.
    • The target, in this context, is the exact location of where the ball is expected to go, determined through a mixture of directional input, and the Shooting Assistance setting.
    • This change is intended to bring shooting closer in-line with how it is portrayed on the real-life pitch.
  • Improved accuracy of Ground Passes when performed in easy passing situations.
    • An easy passing situation generally occurs when there is no pressure or interference from the defending team, and when the pass is performed at a reasonable angle and distance.
    • This change does not impact Through Passes and Lobbed Passes.
  • Increased the speed of Ground Passes performed during Goal Kicks, Free Kicks, and Corner Kicks.
  • Penalty Takers will no longer move their heads once the Shoot action is performed.
    • The Penalty Taker’s head will lock to the middle once the run-up begins.
    • This change does not affect the ability to continue aiming the kick during the run-up.

Addressed the following issues:

  • Instances of a user-controlled player not being able to manually Player Switch to a different player during a Standing Tackle action.
    • This issue was affecting Player Switching with the Right Stick and the Player Switch button.
  • The camera was sometimes taking too long to transition during Goal Kicks and Corner Kicks.
  • Slightly increased the impact of high Attributes on error reduction for certain regular shot situations, such as high powered and under pressure shots.
    • The change impact all shots, including Finesse and Chip shots.

FUT:

Made the following changes:

  • Added a Matches Played counter on the Squad Battles Opponent Select screen.
    • This Matches Played counter tracks the first 40 played and/or skipped weekly competition matches.
      • Once all 40 weekly competition matches have been played or skipped, any further matches played in Squad Battles will not have any impact on the Weekly Score until the next Squad Battles competition begins.

Addressed the following issues:

  • The UI and Player Items were sometimes loading in at different times during kit selection.
  • An incorrect FUT Champions Rank Crest was sometimes displaying on the FUT Online tab and FUT Hub.
    • This was a visual issue only.

Career Mode:

Addressed the following issues:

  • Visual corruption when opening the action list in the Squad HUB after exiting the contract negotiation scene in some situations.

VOLTA FOOTBALL:

Addressed the following issues:

  • The Team Management screen was inaccessible during Kick-Off VOLTA FOOTBALL Survival matches.
  • After scoring a goal, the scorer’s name was sometimes not displaying during a kick-off.
  • Update to the Open Winter FC Windbreaker Jacket not displaying on the Avatar in VOLTA FOOTBALL.

Kick Off:

Addressed the following issues:

  • Live Form arrows were not displaying in Team Management prior to a match.

General:

    • These will only be available following a server update. Please follow @EASPORTSFIFA for updates on when this will be live in-game.
  • Updates to multiple stadiums, badges, shoes, balls, ad boards, and kits.

  1. First match post-patch. I see a bunch of green and red form arrows as I check the squads...
    Everton have Pickford, Gbamin, Gomes and Bernard in the reserves (all red arrows). Richarlison on the bench (red arrow). 72-rated Stekelenburg in net.
    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
    e. Simmed to the next match just to check the squads. Better, but Liverpool had 83-rated Ceballos in the reserves. Red arrow, again.
    Simmed to the next match (Man City) and their starting XI was pretty much perfect. The bench too. No arrows.
    Still though, that Everton squad has me a bit worried...

    Form arrows are not for career mode correct? All I see is one damn fix in career mode.
    Also, let's not forget "soon for consoles" = at least a week.

    Never seen them in CM before today (in this year's game).

    Interesting. So it's in career mode? There have always been form arrows on the teem sheet but were removed and now added and are color coded.

    They have patched the gameplay literally to death this year. While CM was trash at release, at least the gameplay was fun. Now it's just terrible.

    Blame the complaining FUT kiddos
    Yeesh, can't say that I like the sound of higher shooting and passing %s.  One of the things I like about FIFA this year is that the shooting isn't so OP'd (a la PES).  I can actually play a 20 minute game without seeing 5 or more goals, hopefully this doesn't change that.

    I don’t understand this at all? Why do the morale or form icons show up for your starting 11? This must be a glitch.

    Given that the arrows occupy largely the same space as the mood icons, I'm fairly certain it is unintended.

    I follow Fifa on Twitter but it seems like all the tweets are ultimate team related. What gives?

    You must be new to FIFA. ;)

    Can you start leaving out "Soon for PS4 & Xbox" on these types of posts?

    No. I typically update the thread title and OP post when it arrives on console.
    It seems as if EA is purposely trying to destroy this game only barely 2 months in since release. It's mind boggling how bad the game has gotten.
    I always laugh when I see someone say "next year will be better".

    I've been holding out hope before purchasing 20. With PES dropping under $30 tomorrow, I think I'll take a chance on that for this season and keep FIFA19 in case I really dislike career mode in PES.

    Is anyone having problems seeing the updated Norwich player's faces?

    The team is also adding some updated star heads, which are scheduled to arrive shortly after an upcoming server update.
    No word on when that is, but I would assume fairly soon.

More in FIFA 20
