What's New in FIFA 19 Gameplay

Posted June 9th at 12:00pm.

EA SPORTS™ FIFA 19 delivers a champion-caliber experience on and off the pitch, thanks to the introduction of the UEFA Champions League and a series of gameplay innovations on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, that provide new ways for you to control every aspect of every minute on the pitch. 

Active Touch System
This new system fundamentally changes the way you receive and strike the ball, enabling closer control, improved fluidity in movement, more creativity, and increased player personality when. First touch gets an overhaul with new tools such as the disguised touch, flick-up volleys, or even skill specific animations like the Neymar Trap, so that you can stay one touch ahead of your opponent and create scoring chances.

Dynamic Tactics

The reimagined tactical system gives players the tools to set multiple tactical approaches, deeper pre-match customization, and new options for in-match adjustments. Each tactical approach combines formations, mentalities, and attacking and defensive play styles so that you can easily customize your play in any situation.

50/50 Battles

User reactions and player attributes determine the outcome of loose ball duels across the pitch. Thanks to increased teammate intelligence and spatial awareness, every challenge matters in the fight for possession.

Timed Finishing
Get another level of control over every shot with the Timed Finishing system, which puts users in charge of how accurately they connect with the ball. Trigger a timed finish by double tapping the “shoot” button when attempting a strike. The precision and timing of the second button tap determines the result of the contact; perfectly timed strikes increase a shot's accuracy and power, while poorly timed contacts make the shot more likely to miss the mark. Whether it's a hit from outside the box, a precision header, or a deft touch, timed finishing adds a higher layer of control to finishing in FIFA 19.

Real Player Motion Technology

The game-changing animation system, which brought enhanced player personality and movement fidelity to EA SPORTS FIFA, is back with increased coverage of the entire pitch. Enhanced animations for tactical shielding, impact balancing, and physical jostling take realistic player movement, responsiveness, and personality to unbelievable heights.


FIFA 19 releases worldwide on September 28, 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Pre-order* now to get incredible offers, including three days early access with the Ultimate and Champions Editions.
