Second Title Update For FIFA 15 Targets Goalkeepers And Shooting Mechanics


EA Sports has announced that the second title update for FIFA 15 is available now across PlayStation 4 and PC, with an Xbox One release due in the coming days.

Targeting wayward goalkeepers and the stuttering issue found on the PS4 version of the footie simulator, the sophomore patch also addresses and fine tunes other problems found by the community, including the make-or-break Goal Line technology.

Here’s a comprehensive list of those fixes, courtesy of EA:

Adjustments and improvements to shooting and goalkeepers.
(PS4) Fix for fans experiencing stuttering during online and offline gameplay.
Added ability to call out the keeper in Pro Clubs.
Fix for instances where Player Instructions in Seasons mode were not carrying over into gameplay via Team Management.
Further improvements to Player Search in Career Mode.
Adjusted Legendary difficulty in gameplay.
Improvements to Goal Line Technology.
Fix for match length issues in FIFA Ultimate Team Single Player Seasons matches.
Updated real-world injuries and suspensions in Match Day Live.
Improvements to ‘Looking Ahead’ audio in Career.
Fixes to Player selection in Team Management in multiplayer matches.
Tuned player specific audio speech in all modes.
(XB1) Improvements to motion blur effects.
(XB1) Fix to the display of FIFA Ultimate Team Legend players in the EA SPORTS Football Club widget.

This update follows up on FIFA 15’s first post-launch patch. Released just last week, it aimed to fix several of the game’s teething problems such as camera problems and that all-important 12th man, the noise and reactions of the home crowd.

EA’s latest entry into the evergreen franchise currently sits atop the UK’s all-format charts, and shows no signs of budging. With little to no releases from now until Sunset Overdrive and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, it seems safe to assume FIFA 15’s reign will last into the beginning of next month.

Currently available to download for PlayStation 4 and PC, FIFA 15’s sophomore patch is available right now, with EA confirming that the update will arrive on Xbox One “soon.”
