EA will release a comprehensive FIFA 11 patch on 12th November for PlayStation 3 and 17th November for Xbox 360.

The patch will make the offside rule more accurate, improve shooting from weak volleys and eliminate "micro-pausing", among other things.

"Overall, your gameplay experience should now be even better," wrote the Football Live Team at EA Canada on FIFA 11's official forum.

You can expect improvements to the career mode, online head to head play, online clubs, presentation, audio, the creation centre, the FIFA Store and kits.

Highlights for us include the removal of exploits some sneaky gits were using in online play and improved cut scenes during substitutions.

Tom awarded FIFA 11 8/10 in Eurogamer's review.

It enjoyed the biggest sports game launch ever, according to EA, selling over 2.6 million copies globally and generating over $150 million in less than a week.
