The latest FIFA 23 Title Update 4 patch notes are here, and there are a lot of intriguing gameplay changes that will delight or frustrate, depending on your stance. EA is always closely monitoring the balance of FIFA gameplay, and often tweaks features that are a bit too over-tuned, hopefully reducing their effectiveness in-game. So, to see the full batch of FIFA 23 Title Update #4 patch notes, make sure to carry on reading down below.

As this is a full Title Update, there are quite a lot of changes that have been included, from new additions, to balance changes, and some bug fixes too which will be appreciated. 

While there is plenty to look at in the full list, there are a couple of highlights that all players will want to know first. They are as follows:

  • Added a Win-Loss counter in FUT Champions that tracks performance in Play-Offs and Finals competitions.
  • Fixed the FIFA 23 bug where controller and camera settings would incorrectly reset
  • Reduced accuracy of outside the foot shots by up to 30%
    • Outside The Foot Shot trait holders are only decreased by 10%
  • Improved target selection for semi-assisted through passes, with them now less likely to feel underpowered and go to the defender's feet

The biggest change here is obviously the nerf to trivela shots, especially those from outside of the box. If you've played FIFA at all this year, you will definitely know the strength of these shots, even from players with poor shooting attributes, so hopefully, this should help to tone them down a bit.
