Just at the beginning of March, FIFA unveiled 7 changes made to the world football regulations that entered into force in June this year. With that in mind, we question Samuel Rivera, director of playability at FIFA 20, about the impact of the adjustments to the mechanics of this year’s delivery; However, the Mexican developer clarified that the design approach was to return to the foundations of football and, therefore, these modifications will not be reflected in the game, at least in the launch.
No We have made certain changes yet Rivera acknowledged that FIFA always keeps them up to date with regulatory developments and some of the previous adjustments were implemented within the game, such as the initial single player kick-off. “We added that.” Rivera said, but “this year, the priority was actually the same: the fundamental thing, and we haven’t made certain changes yet, with respect to the new rules, but they are things that little by little you’re going to see because we are interested in [the game] being as close to reality as possible. ”
It was not clear if, with that, Rivera was referring to FIFA 20 updates or, more Well, to a later installment of the series, but it is clear that the door is more open here, than it is for the VAR, a technological tool that has changed football, but it was not a priority for the developer team this year.
The 7 changes to the regulation range from the accommodation of the barriers in free throws, through the hands inside the area, the collection of penalties, the warning and expulsion of coaches, and so on. FIFA 20 will make other gameplay adjustments this year, will include street football and will debut on September 27 with Eden Hazard on the cover.
