FIFA 21 Title Update 18 is the latest attempt from the EA Sports team to deliver a balanced and bug-free experience for the players, while the game spends its last months of support.

FIFA 21 is going to be an old game soon with the next mainline entry of the series launching earlier in October this year. However, that doesn’t stop the developers from rolling out new updates for FIFA 21.

The new update for FIFA 21 is mostly a hotfix for the primary modes of the game. While the most changes and addressed issues are related to Ultimate Team, other popular modes such as Career and Volta have also received some improvements.

Focusing on the Ultimate Team, some improvements have been applied to co-op play, including the Captain’s ability to edit the squad, and some Lobby and Button Callout fixes.

On the other hand, the Career mode received a small overhaul for the Transfer Hub menu along with additional results for Netherlands in Youth Scouting.
