EA Sports is getting ready to roll out a major update for its football sim game FIFA 16.

This year’s iteration of the popular franchise has received mostly positive reviews, but many veteran players of the series along with newcomers have complained about some features that severely unbalance the game.

Features such as penalties and poor refereeing decisions have been a big part of the complaints, as well as some of the assisted-passing and player positioning decisions the AI tends to make.

EA Sports released an official statement today about the update, which will improve upon the aforementioned issues. The update is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Here’s the list of changes in FIFA 16 with the update:

  • Improvements to the Rules and Physics systems to have better referee decisions and help address penalty decisions.

  • Behavioral 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 launched even when positioned properly.

  • Improvements in the positioning system to allow for better attacking runs and support.

In addition to the above, small improvements and changes have also been made to the attributes that determine team Chemistry in FIFA Ultimate Team, which affects passing, interceptions, and long shots of players in the team.
