    My lad got this on ps4 to play with a few mates on there instead of on his more favoured xbox. Seems like ps sub-accounts cant actually sign in to ea to play online.

    What a pointless shambles.

    :(

    He'll have to play as my profile i guess

    Is anyone else having issues with the switch version? Playing as Brighton and half of the Squads faces won't load, so simply show a generic face covered in green and black checkerboard pattern. Players like Hemed, Duffy and Ryan for example.

    A match against Huddersfield suggests a similar problem with their team.

    Surely this is an error and not EA releasing a half arsed product?!

    I've played about 15 offline matches and haven't had any problems with the Switch version so far.

    I had no idea there was a patch. Some games played yesterday and the last one played 5 minutes ago. Perhaps there are data problems with certain teams?

    @elvenscroll just loaded up and played my first game and had this issue with some of the Newcastle team.
    I also get a message telling me the game can’t save the downloaded update for ultimate team. Not a good first impression! First Switch game I have not been impressed with on initial load and play.

    Is it an age thing, I seem to remember some EA games being minimum 13 for online play, had issues many years back when my son got an Ice Hockey game? My son has always played FIFA online with a sub account.

    You could maybe set up another sub-account, check FIFA T&Cs re age.

    Are you guys playing digital or cartridge? And how much space do you have?


    The Switch players with issues i mean.

    So how is the switch version then? Im half tempted to buy the game but unsure whether to go for PS4 or the switch version. I guess I might have to think about how much i'd realistically play it handheld.

    @Addy_B I have the XO and Switch versions. The XO is by far the better game, but with the other, you can play FIFA on the train/bus/loo. So happy with both. But in terms of graphics, gameplay,presentation,, and content, XO wins hands down!
    So it's this years Fifa on your TV against FIFA of 2 years ago on the move.

    @SennaCujo

    Cheers. Thought as much. I doubt I'd play it handheld that much so probably be best going for the ps4 version.

    @neems I am on cartridge. I have loads of space free.

    Seems it was fine before any updates

    @donpawley

    Weird, I was wondering if it was a corrupted download or something but I guess not. For what it's worth I just played Brighton vs Newcastle with no issues at all. I don't suppose your Switch could be overheating?

    I should note i've only played it in handheld mode, I haven't tried it on the telly yet.

    Maybe, but it's never been an issue on xbox with the previous two fifa games or with either PvZ garden warfare, so i do wonder if the crap ps kids account system is also ballsing it up too.

    I've only played in handheld mode too. Only seen the issues with Brighton, Newcastle and Huddersfield.

    I’ve only played one match on Switch - and Newcastle player had a checkerboard head.
    V1.0.1 - playing handheld - digital - loads of free space.

    @SennaCujo hello. You say gameplay is far better on the XB version. Can you elaborate please?

    Edit: are the keepers shite?

    Can someone let me know what online coop modes there are. Am I right in thinking you can play through a season coop online?

    Is there no single player cups in FUT this year?

    @CompetitiveDad Haven't played a fat lot on either, but the XO version does feel to have the more solid gameplay that suits me. The through ball seems to be the way to play in the Switch version, whereas I prefer the build up style of attack. Defending and pressing seems a little more solid, if you know what I mean.Haven't seen any GK problems yet.
    Will be keeping both, as the Switch game still seems a solid attempt, just based on an older version, and with a few extras missing that don't really bother me.

    Skipped last years one due to fatigue, feels like I've missed nothing. Think I'm over this game.

    They've changed it up a bit to squad battles, I think it's called.

    @SennaCujo switch version seems quite Arcady which is great. It's also got fast menus and barely any loading times

    I thought the Switch version was FIFA 18 gameplay with perhaps a few ommisions like The Journey, so gameplay should be the same, is that not the case?

    Closer to 16, seems to be the opinion.
