When is Title Update 14 coming out? The new update is now available for the PC versions (Origin & Steam) of FIFA 22. The update should also be available for the PlayStation 4/5 and Xbox Series S/X consoles within the next week.
The update is exciting in any case, because it brings drastic changes in the gameplay and a brand new skill move. Can we already see the first preparations for FIFA 23 here?
FIFA 22 Patch Notes – Attack and Defense Changes
What’s in the update? The new Title Update 14 brings changes to the game that are quite unusual at the current time, because the update turns the gameplay upside down. And that rarely happened this late in the life of a FIFA part.
Especially the shots and the defense are adjusted.
This changes in attack:
- Increased the chance of flutter balls. EA Sports wants to increase the realism of the shots. For example, there should now be more “knuckle ball shots” when the ball is 0.67 meters from the player’s foot and you make a strong shot.
- “Low Driven Shots” should be much more accurate. According to EA, the low shots were underused, which is why they are now being improved.
- A brand new skill move has been added, the “Ball Roll Cut 180”. It can be done with 4 or 5 star players. The skill move is there to create space and let opponents run into space.

That changes in defense:
- The range at which AI players could auto-block shots has been drastically reduced.
- Slightly reduced the range when blocking shots performed by a human player.
- The range an AI defender needs to the attacker to perform an auto tackle has been drastically reduced.
What could the changes mean for FIFA 23? An update with such big gameplay changes at the end of a FIFA part is quite unusual and could indicate preparations for FIFA 23. After all, it would be pretty handy for EA to be able to test new shooting and defense mechanisms with such a large player base right now.
In any case, the fans should be happy with the changes, because the improvements in AI blockades in particular have long been on the wish list of many FIFA players.
