FIFA 14 is joining the leagues of titles getting 'day one' patch treatment as EA Sports target some instability that was found during the closed beta period. There are also fixes to Skill Games and Creation Centre.

The studio promises they're working on feedback received from the FIFA 14 demo and are in the process of including tweaks. EA are also investigating freezes.

So far there's no word on the causes for the game freezing but EA are prioritising the issue. Unless FIFA is getting RPG powers, no one wants any freezing on the pitch.

"Upon starting up FIFA 14 for the first time you'll notice a title update will be made available. The update addresses stability issues found in the closed beta and minor fixes to a couple game mode (Skill Games, Creation Centre) items. Please, if you haven’t done so already, be sure to restart and download the title update in an active session as this will enhance stability when matching up with other players online who have accepted the update," posted EA.

Feedback has highlighted these areas:

• The effectiveness of headers from corner kicks and crosses.
• The effectiveness of finesse shots.
• The accuracy of lofted through-balls.


"Finally, we’re aware that some users are experiencing freezes during the game. We continue to investigate these reports internally, and with our partners, and will update the community when we know more. "

FIFA 14 releases on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 September 27th in EU. Xbox One and PS4 in November.
