Below, is a list of  requested features/mechanics and tuning that the FIFA 20 Dev team say they are  working on and will be prioritized for the new game product.

A.I. Defending

Many efforts are being made to create a better experience for players when it comes to AI Defending and AI Teammate movement/positioning/reactions, as this was continuously mentioned and requested by our players for the next version of FIFA:

  • Renewed Defending System the defending systems are being renewed, with revised positioning and adjustment to the cadence and flow on the pitch. Manual defending will be emphasized and result in more rewarding results for those who do so.
  • Planned Tackling is a new system that favors manual tackling by making sure that the defender that tries the tackle does so in a favorable context to your team (like recovering the ball or kicking the ball to a nearby teammate when tackling, for example).
  • Contain and Secondary Contain Effectiveness will be reduced, keeping the positioning of players/AI Teammates at a further distance and having a slower reaction to directional changes from the dribbler, rarely resulting in an auto-tackle or an auto-block. This will make manual defending not only more effective, but also more rewarding.
  • Improved Jockey System will be implemented with more agility and precision, rewarding players that decide to take control of their defenders.

With these varied systems and mechanics, we expect that our players will feel a difference when it comes to AI Defending, which was a point of community concern during FIFA 19.

1v1 shooting Consistency

The team has put a lot of effort into improving circumstances where a player finds themselves in an easy 1v1 situation against the Goalkeeper:

  • 1v1 Shooting Accuracy will be improved, resulting in more shots on target and better consistency in easy situations inside the box.
  • Open Goal Situations will also be addressed, and will see players being rewarded for 1v1 situations and creating greater chances of scoring “easy goals” – as pointed out in many community examples.
  • Goalkeeper Reactions will also be tuned – specifically against 1v1 situations – resulting in less ‘superhuman’ reactions, which will humanize the goalkeepers movements and result in better scoring opportunities for the attacker.
  • Outside of the Foot Shot situations will be improved and should only happen for players with the Outside of the Foot trait.
  • Shot Elevation/Power Tuning will allow for low powered shots to result in shots similar to Driven Shots, creating more consistency, and resulting in better scoring opportunities.

Timed Finishing

There’s been a ton of feedback on Timed Finishing – a new mechanism that was added to FIFA 19. This mechanic will be further tuned and addressed through the feedback of many within the community:

  • Green Timing Window for timed shots will be reduced (from 2-4 frames to 2 frames for all shots), which will make it harder and require more skill to perform.
  • Timed Shot Accuracy will be tuned to result in slightly less precise shots, although Green Timed Shots will still be more accurate than ‘non-timed shots’.
  • Difficult 180° shots will be tuned to result in less powerful shots, even when timed perfectly.

Player Switching

Players have provided feedback throughout FIFA 19 that, in some instances, a player would be locked to a loose ball and they weren’t able to switch players whenever this would take place. The team is working on improving these situations, as well as adding clarity to the assisted switching mechanism, that will now show an option for automatic switching on Air Balls + Loose Balls situations.

Players also provided feedback that switching didn’t always select the correct player. The team is working on improving the accuracy of switching in numerous situations, including air balls, deflections and crosses. The team is also working on making the right stick switching as consistent and reactive as possible, as well as improving the intelligence between automatic switching of players closest to the ball.

Other  New Features include Volley Crossing and shooting, Chained skill moves, Set-Piece positioning, Manual Goalkeeper movement.

Part of the biggest new features introduced in FIFA 19 was the incorporation of the Champions League along with the Europa League. Now The EA Sports finally secured the rights from UEFA.

Europe’s premier club competition was woven into the very fabric of the game, featuring as a standalone tournament mode as well as being prominent in The Journey, Ultimate Team and Career Mode.

That is expected to continue in FIFA 20 and we could potentially see the inclusion of other UEFA competitions too, such as the European Championship, which takes place across the continent in 2020, with qualification beginning in 2019.

The FIFA video game series last featured the European Championship in FIFA 12, with a special Euro 2012 download pack. This is the approach EA Sports used for World Cup 2018 last year.
