FIFA 19 New Gameplay Feature — Active Touch System

Posted July 24th at 2:00pm.

The Active Touch system in FIFA 19 revolutionizes what you can do with the ball at your feet, opening up areas of gameplay that have never been explored before. 

This new way of receiving, striking, and moving with the ball feels incredibly natural and fluid, which lets you play in fresh, creative ways. Get closer control, inject more player personality into every movement, and feel inspired on the pitch with a slew of tricks, flicks, traps, and feints that make every touch of the ball smoother and more fluid.

Get Creative with Active Touch


Numerous tools and animations have been added to the ball control system to provide more variety in moving the ball. Specifically, there are now multiple means of trapping the ball, such as the “disguise trap,” a feint used to fool defenders into moving the wrong direction with very subtle first touch movement. Get closer to the real world game by using the same moves that pros like Toni Kroos use to create space, send defenders the wrong way, and open up the game for your team. 

Similar to the new ways of trapping the ball, a variety of flick animations have also been added to allow for deeper creativity in attack. Players can use their head, chest, knees, and feet to flick the ball, change direction, confuse defenders, and open up space that they can exploit. Just like Kylian Mbappé bamboozles defenders with his bag of tricks, you can do things with the ball in FIFA 19 that you never thought were possible and leave your opponent shaking his head in defeat.

By unlocking so many innovative methods to interact with the ball and injecting a higher level of control into every movement, Active Touch makes FIFA 19 feel more realistic than any other moment in the series’ rich history.
