Beware the Xbox One FIFA 14 controller bug

And bootflow issue. Day one update due.

EA has identified a couple of bugs with the Xbox One version of FIFA 14 it intends to tackle with an update.

The first is a controller bug. Using two separate controllers, both assigned to user profiles, and then using controller two to navigate the bootflow when FIFA 14 is loading can result in a crash, EA warned.

In an update on, EA Sports said it will fix this issue shortly after launch (the game came out today alongside the Xbox One).

In the meantime, it advised using controller one to navigate the bootflow of FIFA 14. You can turn on and use controller two once in the main menu.

The second bug is a bootflow issue. If you leave the Xbox One inactive until it 'sleeps' on the title screen in the Xbox One bootflow, you will not be able to access any online features when returning from an unsuspended state.

EA Sports advises you don't suspend the console when on the title screen. If you do, restart the Xbox One.

The developer mentioned a day one update designed to squash these bugs, which should be out very soon.

Looking further ahead, EA said it had identified other next-gen-related issues it intends to tackle with an update. They are outlined in the list below:

  • FIFA fans cannot join Friends Only matches via a friend's profile (PS4 Only). You should: Accept the invite from the user when it comes through and you will be able to join the match properly.
  • Title crash in Co-Op seasons if the captain is using a custom formation and the non-captain does not have any custom formations (XB1 Only). You should: Make sure you have the same amount of custom formations as your teammate, or not use them.
  • The 'Seasons Win' item in the EA SPORTS FC catalogue will not be properly received if gifted to a friend. (BOTH PS4/XB1) You should: Hold off on gifting this item until the upcoming title update.
  • Compatibility improvements with Xbox voice commands (XB1 Only).
  • When playing as a GK in Pro Clubs, you will have no way of changing the camera off of the 'End To End' camera (XB1 Only).

Meanwhile, EA said it had made changes to the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC versions that had resulted in the crash rate dropping 71 per cent since launch.
