EA releases FIFA 21’s Title Update 4 this week, which includes bug fixes for issues like players floating after headers and yellow card scenarios.
FIFA 21 received a ton of tiny but mighty bug fixes in the game’s fourth title update this week. Although the changes may not make a huge difference in gameplay, players will likely be thrilled to see some long-awaited improvements to some frustrating aspects of referee roles, celebrations, and more.
EA published FIFA 21 on October 5 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The 28th installment in the soccer series includes an Ultimate Team setting with 100 famous players, as well as a totally revamped career mode and the return of FIFA Volta. Of course, as is to be expected with new releases, FIFA 21 did come with some glitches and bugs, such as the referees being a bit too overzealous with handing out yellow cards.

Players were quick to report the issues, and thankfully, EA addressed them with this latest patch. As Eurogamer reported, one major change targeted referee logic so that yellow card scenarios would be decreased. Additionally, the Ball Roll to Scoop Turn skill move combination was adjusted to require a five-star skill move rating, and the Royal Wave celebration is now an option when players request a random celebration.
Aside from these more major changes, a long list of bugs were addressed, such as referees ending games during inappropriate situations in stoppage time. A few silly yet frustrating glitches were taken care of, including one where players would float in midair for a moment after a physically contested header, and one where player heads would “shift erratically.” FIFA 21’s Title Update 4 has been available on PC since October 27, and the update hit Xbox One and PS4 this week for players to download.
The next generation of consoles is slated to arrive this month, with Xbox Series X and S releasing on November 10 and PlayStation 5 following suit two days later. Since FIFA 21 hit stores so close to the next-gen console release dates, an enhanced version of the game is headed to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on December 4. Thankfully, for gamers who plan on snagging the new consoles, EA announced a Dual Entitlement scheme that will allow people to upgrade their copy of FIFA 21 for free for the duration of the game’s season and until the release of FIFA 22. This latest patch certainly did wonders for player complaints, but there is still plenty of work to be done, and hopefully EA will be working on even more improvements to be unveiled alongside the next-generation copy of the game.
