FIFA 21: Update 8

FIFA 21 : Update 8

You’re probably frustrated with your FUT Champions matches in FIFA 21, but don’t worry, because EA has released Update 8 for the PC version of FIFA 21 and it’s coming to PS5, Xbox Series X | S, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch soon. Below we detail the majority of the changes that this update introduces:

New in the gameplay

  • Made various adjustments to the team pressure directional pad tactic.
  • Reduced the amount of time the Crosshead Team Pressure tactic can be active before requiring a cooldown, from 20 seconds to 15 seconds.
  • In situations where the defending team uses Team Press and regains possession, Team Press will not automatically remain active on the next loss of possession.
  • Both skill moves are no longer considered easy skill moves and will be less effective when chained while moving.
  • The goalkeeper sometimes gets stuck in the geometry of the net and cannot get the ball into play, which means that matches do not finish at the expected time.
  • After a defender stands in front of the owner of the ball after a hard hit, the defender sometimes does not contest the ball.
  • When a goalkeeper moved and then stood still during a penalty, he could sometimes deflect the ball into his own net when it was hit directly.
  • In situations where the ball carrier started a shooting animation, but the shot was canceled in time, the defender could sometimes perform an unintentional blocking animation.

Changes in Ultimate Team

  • In online matches, players will no longer see their opponent’s equipped ball item, but will always see theirs.
  • Co-Op Squad Battles matches can now be paused during the gameplay by any player.
  • Co-Op Squad Battles games no longer have a pause limit.
  • After claiming FUT Coins from team event objectives, the overall FUT Coin total did not increase until you exit FUT and re-enter.
  • The correct amount of FUT coins was being claimed, this issue only affected when the display of the grand total increased.
  • The Co-Op widget might stop responding after the price filter was used during a search in the Transfer Market.
  • If a Co-Op Lobby guest left the Lobby while the Host was opening a package, the background of the Host menu would be displayed incorrectly.
  • When previewing Goal Music, Chant, Anthem, and Crowd Items in Stadium, the audio would be restored if the Preview Item was selected.
  • The progress UI was animated each time the Community Event screen was visited.
  • Updated description of Competitor mode.
  • Updated the FUT Champions Leaderboard Points icon displayed on the Weekend League details screen.
  • Updated background in the pop-up window that is shown when choosing a seasonal reward that has multiple options.
  • Repetitive comments may occur during some corner kicks.

FIFA 21 update 8 is now available for PC players, and in the coming weeks it will arrive on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
