FIFA 20 has a new update in store for their PC community that’s bringing a better way for players to monitor their connection to the EA SPORTS servers, along with visual updates to some kits.

While it’s unclear if the update will come to the rest of the FIFA ecosystems, namely PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, it should already be available for PC players to test out. This isn’t the biggest patch for FIFA, but it still holds worthwhile additions to catch up on.

Not only are the devs getting people excited for plans to TOTW Moments, they’re also fine tuning the online experience, which could be precursors for the next iteration of the game.

Though it’s not going to fix any of the connection issues that players have been experiencing throughout online fixtures, it will give them a heads up on where the problems are stemming from.

The option will give a batch of players the ability to see a certain information that gives them the status of their connection. Not all FIFA 20 players will get the update.

This is an experimental addition to the game’s options that are going to go into practice soon, but could be refined by the time FIFA 21 rolls around.

Visual updates

The EA SPORTS devs weren’t entirely specific, but they’ve added updates to numerous kits and tifos in the game.

These will hopefully allow the immersion of the football simulator to be more effective with new animations and shirts coming to the game.

Meanwhile, a fix to scrolling line ups not displaying the correct names has been addressed, hopefully ironing out any errors there.
