EA Sports will release the first title update for FIFA 17 this week.

As detailed on the game's blog, the update makes a number of gameplay changes and fixes. One of the problems the update addresses is an issue where players would sometimes overrun the ball after a skill move. Additionally, the cut scene for "contentious fouls" can now be skipped.

The FIFA 17 patch also increases the likelihood of making an error on a triple-tap ground cross, while the "general responsiveness" of shooting has been improved.

This new patch also makes a number of visual changes, one of which is fixing an issue involving frame rate during the pre-match skill game. There is also a fix for an issue where the fog from a player's breath during cold matches "was detached from their position." Additionally, new components of the 2016/2017 Premiere League broadcast package have been added.


The FIFA 17 patch, which launches this week for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, also makes some changes to the game's career mode and Ultimate Team modes, among others. Take a look at the full patch notes below, as written by EA Sports.
