EA Sports released the FIFA 22 Title Update 3 patch notes late Nov. 2 detailing changes coming to the PC (Origin/Steam) version of the game.

FIFA updates traditionally hit the PC version of the game before the console versions. The updates rarely, if ever, change between platform releases so fans take the PC patch notes as what's to come for their preferred console.

Here's a breakdown of all the changes in FIFA 22 Title Update 3, per EA Sports' Trello board:

FIFA 22 Title Update 3: All Changes Detailed

Gameplay

Addressed the following issues:


  • In a rare situation, the ball could be moved during a free kick without play resuming for both sides.
  • In some situations, the referee did not call for a foul after the goalkeeper made illegal contact with the ball carrier.
  • Addressed some stability issues that could occur during the second half.
  • Sometimes, goalkeepers were jumping too far forward when attempting to make a diving save.
  • These jumping animations did not affect a goalkeeper’s ability to make saves.
  • In some instances, the referee incorrectly cancelled their advantage call, resulting in an unintended set piece.
  • When playing as a locked player, the opposition’s defensive line could have continued following the locked player deep into their own half, even when it was not beneficial to do so.
