The issues were detailed in a post on EA’s site, and warned of two major issues which the company is hoping to take care of with a ‘day one update’ so expect to see that soon.
The first issue surrounds using two controllers that have both been signed in with user profiles, and using the second controller to navigate the bootflow whilst FIFA 14 is loading, which can cause the game to crash.
In the meantime, EA recommends using only one controller during the bootflow, and switching on the second controller when you reach the main menu.
The second issue relates to a bootflow issue. This occurs when you leave the console until it goes to sleep on the title screen, and when you return to the console you will be unable to access any of the online features in the game. EA recommends not letting it go to sleep on the title screen, and if it does you should restart the console.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait long before the release of this patch.
Also addressed in the post was a list of known issues affecting the new generation of consoles that EA are working on a fix for and are hoping to sort for a forthcoming title update. This includes:
•FIFA fans cannot join Friends Only matches via a friend’s profile (PS4 Only). You should: Accept the invite from the user when it comes through and you will be able to join the match properly.
•Title crash in Co-Op seasons if the captain is using a custom formation and the non-captain does not have any custom formations (XB1 Only). You should: Make sure you have the same amount of custom formations as your teammate, or not use them.
•The ‘Seasons Win’ item in the EA SPORTS FC catalogue will not be properly received if gifted to a friend. (BOTH PS4/XB1) You should: Hold off on gifting this item until the upcoming title update.
•Compatibility improvements with Xbox voice commands (XB1 Only).
•When playing as a GK in Pro Clubs, you will have no way of changing the camera off of the ‘End To End’ camera (XB1 Only).
On a more positive note, EA mentioned that with the fixes made to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the game, they have been able to reduce the amount of crashes in the game by 71%, so it’s not all doom and gloom.
