Gameplay changes on FIFA 19 include the new “Active Touch System”— an overhaul of player control, “timed finishing”— where the kick button may be pressed a second time to determine the exact moment the ball is actually kicked, “50/50 battles”— a system for determining how likely a player will win loose balls, and “Dynamic Tactics”— which allows players to configure strategies, and switch between them in real-time during a match.
FIFA 19 introduces the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Super Cup competitions to the game, after their licences with Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer expired. The game will have support for promotion and relegation between the Champions League and Europa League. Martin Tyler and Alan Smith return as regular commentators with Derek Rae and Lee Dixon as Champions League commentators. Geoff Shreeves also returns as the touchline reporter as well as Alan McInally providing updates from around the league. New graphics and stadiums have been implemented.
