FIFA 21 Title Update #7 Available For PC, Soon For Xbox One & PlayStation 4 - Patch Notes

FIFA 21 title update #7 has arrived for PC users. Typically, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users see the same patch, about a week or so later, but we’ll let you know when it arrives.

The latest patch addresses some of the issues with gameplay, FUT, Career Mode, VOLTA FOOTBALL, and Career Mode, along with some audio and visual updates.

Check out the patch notes below.

Gameplay

Made the following changes:

  • Reduced the speed at which the ball travels when performing Driven or Driven Ground crosses.
    • This effect is most noticeable when performing a Driven or Driven Ground Cross with a player whose Crossing Attribute is 75 or lower.
    • The higher the Crossing Attribute, the less pronounced this effect is.
  • Decreased how accurate a volley can be if the ball is reaching the shot taker at a high speed.
  • Adjusted referee logic to better evaluate when a yellow card should be given.
  • Further improved interception logic in situations where the defending player is directly in the ball’s path.
    • This change applies only in situations where the ball carrier is passing the ball.
  • Decreased player transition speed into a Fake Shot while Sprinting, after the Skill Move was successfully requested.

Addressed the following issues:

  • Improved animation selection logic when attempting to make a save as a player-controlled goalkeeper.
  • Sometimes, fouls around the edge of the box were resulting in seemingly incorrect ball placement for the following set piece.
    • The in-game referee made the correct decision in these situations, but the resolution of the fouling animations could make it seem as if a foul took place in a slightly different spot on the pitch.
  • Improved referee logic in situations where a professional foul is committed by the last player in defense, impacting a potential attacking opportunity.
  • In some cases, referees did not make the correct foul call following a physical contest or Standing Tackle.
  • The Heel Chop Skill Move could not be performed while Sprinting.
  • Reduced some instances of the ball carrier stumbling after minimal physical contact in the box.
    • This could sometimes have led to unnecessary penalty kick calls.
  • In some situations, a player who was attempting to intercept a pass would incorrectly move their foot away from the ball.
  • In rare instances, players would teleport during a non-gameplay foul scene following an advantage.

FIFA Ultimate Team

Addressed the following issues:

  • When loading a Squad Battles match, the Opponent’s Squad screen sometimes disappeared too quickly
  • After reaching the previously set personal Pack Limit on FIFA Playtime, Squad Building Challenge Reward Packs could not have been opened without changing or ignoring the limit for 1 hour.
  • A potential stability issue could occur when the Captain invited a friend to the Co-Op Lobby.

VOLTA FOOTBALL

Addressed the following issues:

  • When switching between tabs in Gear Up, the UI did not always reflect the currently selected Objective.
  • Addressed some instances of players being unable to matchmake.

Career Mode

Addressed the following issues:

  • Updated the Interactive Match Sim UI when penalty kicks and penalty kick shootouts occur.
  • A stability issue could occur when playing with Argentine teams.
  • In Player Career, some stats were not being tracked correctly when playing a portion of the match and selecting the Jump To Result option from the pause menu.

General, Visual, and Audio

Made the following changes:

  • Updated several kits and a stadium.
  • The Connection Monitoring setting now defaults to Icons Only instead of Off.

EA has also posted part 1 of their 4 part Pitch Notes series, as they detail how an issue in FIFA 21 is identified, investigated, resolved and released. Part 1 is all about identifying where potential issues are found and tracked, in order to advance into the second phase.

The types of information that they are looking for are:

  • Detailed descriptions of what happened, both when the issue occurred, but also before the issue happened and afterwards.
    • Often, the cause of an issue is because of something that was done in the lead up to when the issue was actually seen by a player, not at the exact time that the issue itself was seen.
      • As a hypothetical example, you could have a crash when loading into a match in Career Mode, but the reason for the crash could be because of a player injury that happened in the previous match causing some sort of data corruption issue.
  • Information on whether this is happening all the time, was just seen once, etc.
  • Visual examples of the issue happening, such as a video of the issue, or screenshots.

  1. They need to patch Tournament Mode.  When playing the FA Cup, when you substitute a player, the subs board is turned in reverse.  You see the FA Cup logo, instead of the numbers of the players who are being swapped.

    Still no fixes for simming problems with ratings. Subs always have terrible ratings that drop their form and jumping to result from gameplay makes everyone a 6.0
    I believe match rating is also bugged if you change a player's position during the match. I had an Arsenal gameplan that changed formations from back 3 to back 4 and Saka & Tierney would get hammered with 5s going. Pretty sure I saw it as well moving Aubameyang from LW to ST in other matches. Guessing it has to do with out of position penalties being incorrectly applied but who knows.
    Still no fix for the manager wearing the team kit?
    Have the incorrect manager faces during negation scenes been fixed? I haven't encountered a transfer window for a while.

    I haven't seen my manager wear my team jersey for quite awhile.

    So they penalize match ratings for moving players mid-match to new positions but don't penalize OVR's if you move a ST to LB (just an example).
    Makes sense.
    I have a question about the title updates for Xbox One. Are you able to see them in your storage? or do the updates just happen automatically without the ability to see them?
