FIFA 12 Patch Now Available

Posted October 18th, 2011 at 9:15 am

The first post-release patch for FIFA 12 arrived today for both the Xbox 360 and PS3. This update most prominently addresses a perceived exploit online as some users were selecting to control the goalie leaving the CPU to handle all defenders – now the option to switch to the goalie has been removed. Otherwise the patch primarily addresses stability issues. Continue on for a look at the full list of changes in the latest patch for FIFA 12. 

•Goalkeeper control in online matches: We asked for your feedback and we got lots of it. After reviewing that and our own telemetry, we decided that enough people were abusing this feature online to negatively affect the experience of the majority. So we have decided to remove the ability to press Back/Select and play as the goalkeeper, allowing the CPU to defend, in all online matches. The function remains available in offline matches.

•Fixed a situation that would see the user in an empty FUT Store without button functionality.

•Fixed a FUT crash when using custom tactics.

•Fixed a hard lock that would occur when applying a Manager Contract after purchasing a Bronze Premium Pack in FUT.

•Fixed a situation that would see some users being disconnected from FUT after five seconds of connectivity.

•Optimized the FUT server to speed up transactions.

•Fixed a situation where the game would hang when downloading a Game Face.

•Fixed a situation that would allow an online team to be controlled by other player.
