FIFA 18 Overhauls Referee Logic

Jul 11,2017


If there is anything that allows you to enjoy real-world football referees, even if they seem to have screwed up their favorite team, then in FIFA 17 they have to deal with their digital equivalents. The good news is: FIFA 18 update to its potential logic, players should hopefully go through fewer broken controllers as a result of, we will say, highly questionable decisions and calls.

After Per Kicker interviewed EA Creative Director Matthew Prior, the problem seems to be rooted in the Frostbite engine used in FIFA 17. According to the data provided, while their calls are technically "correct", how they were visually represented could differ in significant ways, frustrating players when a seemingly non-issue gets their team carded. 

That does really raise a question: Will the AI update only applies to PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One versions of FIFA 18? The Frostbite game engine dedicated to single player mode The Journey, and does not appear in the title of the latest version of the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Switch. These three will use the downgraded engine, utilizing only updated statistics for player, rather than the graphics and logical overhaul planned for newer-generation (and more robust) platforms (although unlike the other two platforms, the Nintendo switch version does get local wireless Play).

If the referee logic problem is based on the Frostbite engine, it would not make sence to the implement AI updates to the older-platform versions of the game. Although that does subsequently mean that any long-standing bugs with the older model will also apply to their FIFA 18 version.

However, no matter how the underlying program to run, FIFA 18's various versions may all involve new circuits, and stats upgrades to the current existing teams. However, there may be some missing ones, such as China's Super League. In turn, that replaced some of the modern stars and statistics monsters that FIFA 17 players may rely on.

FIFA 18 will be appearing on every major platform on September 29th as reported, by that time, gamers can get cheap fifa 18 coins on
