Now Playing: FIFA 19 Review

EA has released a new update for FIFA 19 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The patch, which is live now, focuses on infrastructure improvements and sever reliability.

"The first change is focused on reducing the time that it takes for the game to retry sending gameplay information to the network when the initial attempt to send the information was unsuccessful," EA says. "This is intended to reduce the likelihood of a delay in those inputs taking action in the game in situations where gameplay information was intermittently failing to be sent due to potential network issues.

"The second change is focused on reducing the amount of maximum buffer between when gameplay information is received by the game and when it is visually rendered on the screen."

Server reliability in online matches has long been a source of frustration for some sections of the FIFA community. In theory, this update should help alleviate some of those issues, and EA says it will continue working to improve its servers for both FIFA 19 and FIFA 20.

The latter is only a few months away from launch, with a release date of September 27. It includes a FIFA Street-style Volta mode, among other ways to play.
