A new trailer for FIFA 20 showcases some of the gameplay changes coming to this year’s instalment of EA’s blockbuster football franchise.

For us the headline change is a significant update to set pieces. EA promise that the “unpredictable and inconsistent” free-kicks found in recent FIFA games is now a thing of the past, with new mechanics based on aim, position, power, and ball spin. An overhaul of the game’s positioning system should also expose players to FIFA 20′s one-on-one feature, which highlights individual moments of skill in close quarters

Other enhancements include improved ball physics, strafe dribbling, composed finishing, and referees who no longer interfere with play. You can take a look these updates, and plenty more, in the new trailer.

One thing FIFA 20 won’t have, however, is Juventus. The Serie A champions have this week inked an exclusivity deal with Konami’s PES 2020. Their place in FIFA 20 will be taken by a team called Piemonte Calcio, named after an Italian region near Turin.

FIFA 20 will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 27, 2019. A Legacy Edition will also come to Nintendo Switch, which updates last year’s game with this season’s teams, kits, and squads.
