FIFA 21 Title Update 6 Patch Notes (1.08) for PC, PlayStation & Xbox

The latest FIFA 21 Title Update went live on PC (Origin/Steam). The following patch notes will be made available on PlayStation and Xbox at a later date.

This most recent FIFA 21 update is a fairly major patch with emphasis on a few persistent gameplay issues. There are also tweaks to Ultimate Team, Career Mode, Pro Clubs, and VOLTA Football.

One of the biggest issues in the early stages of FIFA 21 has been the blocking capabilities of AI Defenders. Viral clips have surfaced of Defenders reaching a leg over their head to block an oncoming shot, amongst other bends of reality.

Another gameplay change made in this update is the nerfing of stepover Skill Moves. Exit speed after performing stepover Skill Moves has been lowered in response to discussion from the FIFA community.
