New FIFA 16 Update Revealed

Following the launch of FIFA 16 on consoles and computers about three months ago, EA Sports has officially announced the latest update coming to its association football (soccer) simulation video game, including a number of changes that are said to make it more balanced and responsive in gameplay.

FIFA 16 Update 5 features:

  • Improvements to the Rules and Physics systems to have better referee decisions and help address penalty decisions
  • Behavioural changes in ‘Secondary Contain’ and ‘Interceptions’ to help balance high pressure situations
  • Improvements in how quickly fatigue effects occur for players using ‘Aggressive Interceptions’ and ‘Secondary Contain’. This could in turn have an impact on your ability to apply high pressure as the game progresses and your players become increasingly fatigued
  • Instances where no auto tackle was launched when defenders were positioned properly
  • Improvements in the positioning system to allow for better attacking runs and support
  • Minor changes have been made to attribute boosts provided by Chemistry in FIFA Ultimate Team
FIFA 16 Update 5 is now available on PC, while Xbox One and PS4 will get it a similar update later on.
