FIFA 18 update 1.03 has been released to the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions of the game, making some changes to the FIFA Ultimate Team mode, along with a number of other changes to the general gameplay and some of the other modes, like the returning “The Journey” story mode and Career Mode.
FIFA 18 released late last month, and has gotten fairly positive reviews, though Gamespot has apparently unfavorably compared the gameplay to Pro Evolution Soccer 2018’s own smoother football gameplay. These new updates that are in FIFA 18 update 1.03 may be intended to make the game play somewhat smoother.
The various changes in the new update include fixing issues where players could control the goalie in single player mode, issues where the crowd would wear the wrong flags when the team had certain kit on, issues with the mode’s Extra Time Display, and more.
When it comes to gameplay, the update mainly focused on reaction times for goalies, turning down the difficulty in amateur and semi-pro difficulty settings, and reduced shot accuracy while also increasing goalkeeper times in certain situations.
The Journey mode, FIFA 18’s story mode that began in last year’s game, has also been affected by FIFA 18 update 1.03, though they’re not much compared to career and Ultimate Team’s changes, as the only real changes are cinematic shots in response to player actions and a crash issue in Chapter 5 of the story mode.
