Here is the press release sent directly from EA Sports with the complete patch notes:

Hey FIFA Fans,

The first title update for FIFA 19 is now available and includes the changes below.


Due to community feedback, we are planning on limiting changes to Gameplay and only making targeted fixes in an effort to keep the balance and feel of the game consistent while we continue to gather feedback from players.

Addressed the following issues:

  • The power bar for Set Piece Kicks in an Online Match was sometimes incorrectly going to 100% when the player had requested less power.
  • Sometimes, when the player requests a regular (laces) shot, they will get an inside of the foot shot animation instead.
  • This inside of the foot shot animation would usually result in the shot having less power


We have published a pitch notes article that covers Traits in FIFA 19, check it out here https://www.easports.com/fifa/pitch-notes.

Addressed the following issues:

  • Some Traits that no longer had any functionality in gameplay were still displaying in the Front End.
  • Some Traits that did have functionality in gameplay were not displaying in the Front End.
  • Added (CPU AI Only) to the names of Traits that only have an effect on players when they are controlled by the CPU AI.
  • A refresher on what we mean by “CPU AI”.
  • The CPU plays the game as you would, limited by the same input restrictions that a human player has.
  • This means that the CPU team has an active player, just like you do, which we call the CPU AI-controlled player.
  • A CPU AI-controlled player exists in the following circumstances:
  • On a team with no human players.
  • On a team with human players who are all locked to specific players, that also has CPU teammates.
  • For example, a Pro Clubs team, with less than 11 human players, with no “ANY” player.
  • A CPU AI-controlled player does not exist in the following circumstances:
  • On a team with human players who are not locked to specific players.
  • For example, a team in FUT Champions.

FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT):

  • In Rivals, some reward options contain four rewards but only three were displaying in the front end.
  • This was a visual issue only, players selecting these rewards received all of the appropriate rewards.
  • Trying to swap duplicate items from the New Items screen would sometimes cause an error message to appear and/or display an undefined Item image.
  • FUT Coin balances were sometimes not visually updating properly when a player was outbid on an Item on the FUT Transfer Market.
  • This was a visual issue only and had no impact on a player’s FUT Coin balance.
  • Stability issue that would sometimes occur in FUT Single Player Seasons if the player had forfeited the previous match.
  • Squad Building Challenge rewards that provided a FUT Item required logging in and out of FUT before you could claim them.
  • Visual issue where a player would sometimes disappear during a pack opening walkout animation.
  • Some walkout animations were causing the player to warp into place.
  • The country graphic displayed in Squad Battles for a Squad from India were incorrect.
