EA Sports Add New Tackling Function Improve FIFA 18 Game Vastly

Jul 13,2017


The gap between the conservative tackles and slide tackles will now be filled with a 'halfway house' challenge. Don’t you hate it on FIFA when you do not trust a conservative tackle to do the job, but do not want to risk a sliding challenge? Well, do not worry, thhose days will be over soon!

EA Sports have announced that a new solution of tackling will be incorporated into the upcoming FIFA 18 version, which will greatly enhance your defense in the game. And the new ‘hard tackle’ will be a halfway house between the traditional conservative standing tackle, and a full-blown sliding challenge.

Often, the slide tackle will prevent the player from recovering in time to get the second challenge on the attacker, while a standing tackle is sometimes invalid, and the opponent can try to dance around the challenge. So the latest additions will be music to the ears of those players who have been prepared for their own defending well.

How will it work? Players can now hold down the tackle button on the controller and the player will perform the challenge.

However the issue will all be about timing -  having played a preview of the latest game, we notice that you have to be better respond at timing challenges to ensure the hard tackle is performed, and we found that you have to start holding down the button for about half a second to ensure that a challenge was made.

The advantage of the tackle is that you are now much more likely to win the physical 
 battle without having to recover from getting up off the ground, like you do when you  perform a sliding challenge.

"We have added the 'hard tackle', which is halfway between a sliding tackle and a standing tackle." Sam Rivera, FIFA 18 Associate Producer said  at the EA Sports preview event.

"There's now much more personality in defending - in the same way that we're adding personality to dribbling, we're adding it for defending so it matters more that you have a good defender and a good tackler because they will have more chances to get to the ball," Rivera added.

FIFA 18 will be available on all consoles soon later this year, are you looking forward to playing the game? Do not forget to come to FIFACOINSBUY.Com whenever you need fifa coins!
