A transformation in the way players physically interact in all areas of the pitch. Control is now in your hands as you battle for space and possession.
Pushback Tech innovates in trapping, dribbling, physics, and defending to create true-to-life battles for position and the ball. This is especially important when you want to control the ball and buy time for a teammate to make a run or get into a supporting position.
Player interactions come to life in realistic detail across the entire pitch, like goalkeeper collisions, across-body tackles, 50/50 battles, jostling while ball is in the air and ball control while shielding.
New proximity-based shielding will help you fend off opponents and keep possession. Defenders can be shielded out as you dribble in any direction.
New options in attack give players more ways to create chances and finish in front of goal. Driven finish - a new shot mechanic lets players keep the ball low in any situation - finesse, volley, or when simply slotting it home. Threaded through pass - Curved. Precise. Into space. Create new scoring chances with a perfectly executed threaded through pass. Driven goal kicks - start a quick counter attack by passing it out from goal with power and direction. Downwards headers - greater control in direction allows players to head the ball down and into the ground, making keepers work harder.
