A New FIFA 20 update is out today
EA Sports has released a new FIFA 20 update today that’s available to download right now on PS4 and Xbox One. This patch has already been launched on PC, meaning that gamers on the EA Origin platform already have access to it. From what has been shared online, many of today’s changes affect FIFA Ultimate Team mode and are focused on removing annoying bugs, and getting ready for other changes.
This includes making the Transfer Market price system work more effectively on PS4 and Xbox One.
According to newly released patch notes, today’s FIFA 20 changes will also bring a new feature to the game in the near future.
The Special Quality Filter will make it possible to search for the exact Player Item rarity and will be available to use via the FUT Transfer Market.
A message from EA Sports adds: “Thanks to those who’ve provided feedback. Throughout the course of the FIFA 20 season, we’ll provide you with more information and updates if and when they become available. Be sure to follow @EAFIFADIRECT on Twitter for the latest news and updates.”
Full patch notes from today’s FIFA 20 update 1.23 can be found below, courtesy of EA Sports:
Made the following change:
- Added the Special Quality Filter, a new feature that will be activated through a server release at a later date and time, and this activation will be announced on the @EAFIFADIRECT Twitter account.
- The Special Quality Filter enables players to search for the exact Player Item rarity.
- The Special Quality Filter is available in the Transfer Market, and in the Club tab of the Squad screen.
- The Special Quality Filter can be accessed by hovering over the Quality tile when performing a search, followed by pressing your controller’s confirmation button.
- Known Issue: The Special Quality Filter incorrectly displays an option to search for Silver FUT Champions Items, an Item rarity that is not present in-game.
Addressed the following issue:
- When selecting one of the first 7 Player Items in the search results, the Compare Price function on the Transfer Market was only displaying 1 page of Player Items.
