A new update for FIFA 19 makes changes to shooting, strength, goalkeepers, and more.

First up is an adjustment to the effectiveness of first time finesse shots when the ball is coming from behind the shooting player. Following the update, shots taken in this manner are now more likely to be impacted by error resulting in less accuracy, ball speed, and ball spin. In addition to this, the effectiveness of defensive pressure from the front of a shooting player will result in less effective shots that are more prone to error.

Another area being adjusted is strength when dribbling with the ball. Players are now less likely to be pushed off the ball when a defender approaches from the side. The stronger a player is, the more they will benefit from this change, according to EA.

Goalkeepers have also undergone a couple of changes in this update, including now reacting to penalty kicks that are straight at them, hitting powered up first time passes correctly, and no longer being pushed out of the way by user controlled players during a free kick.

Take a look at the full patch notes here.

FIFA 19 is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
