They include reworked set pieces, new ball physics and “dynamic 1v1s” in attack, where players are given increased control, and in defence, where players can claim possession of the ball with “active touch tackling”.
EA says FIFA 20’s AI defending system has been tweaked to reward players who choose to defend manually, with successful manual tackles more likely to result in the ball going in the direction of a teammate.
The trailer also shows how players in one-on-one situations are more clinical due to goalkeeper reactions being tuned to result in fewer “superhuman” saves being made.
Timed shooting – where pressing the shoot button a second time just as your player hits the ball turns the cursor green and results in a more accurate shot – has also be modified. Players now only have a window of two frames to hit the button for green shots. Their accuracy has also been slightly reduced.
EA Access and Origin Access members will be the first to be able to play FIFA 20 though, with an exclusive trial kicking off on September 19.
FIFA 20 Legacy Edition will also be released on Nintendo Switch on September 27, although it won’t include any of the “big new features” included in other editions of the game like Volta street football.
That means instead of including Juventus, FIFA 20 will introduce Piemonte Calcio as a new playable team with a custom badge and kit.
