Take to the pitch.
FIFA 18 was released in late December and, as ever, has been hugely popular in soccer loving countries around the world. The game has received positive reviews since its launch and soccer fans everywhere have been enjoying taking to the pitch and challenging their friends.
FIFA players will be interested to learn that a patch update is set to be launched today which sees a number of bugs and issues addressed. In particular, a bug has been patched which saw players sometimes controlling the wrong character on a Skill Game. Trainer settings will also be implemented so the Intro Match will show Movement and Mechanics instead of just the former.
You will also now be able to watch FUT Champions Channel replays in slow motion and removes the non-functional restart button in the FUT Champions Channel Pause Menu.
As DSO Gaming reports, the complete patch notes are as follows:
