FIFA 18 PC Update Out Now

The latest update for EA’s FIFA 18 has just dropped for PC users, fixing a bunch of bugs and adding a new functionality across modes.

The update has also introduced some balance fixes, slightly altering the difficulty for Amateur and Semi-Pro difficulties. Shot accuracy has also been decreased and goalkeeper reaction times in certain in-game situations have been increased.

For those interested in the business gameplay element of FIFA 18, two new options have been added: players will now be able to delegate contract renewals, as well as renegotiate contract with a player whose release clause has been paid.
