FIFA 16 News Roundup #17

Title Update #5 for FIFA 16 went live on PC this week including the next gameplay changes:

  • 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, there have been made some minor changes to attribute boosts provided by Chemistry in FIFA Ultimate Team, which affects passing, interceptions, and long shots.

The update will be available on Xbox One and PS4 earlier next week.


The FIFA 16 Ultimate Team mobile game also got an update released that includes a new game mode, Skill Games!
