EA released a deep-dive gameplay trailer earlier this week that showed many tweaks to the game. There are new skill moves, a better defending repertoire, and the ability to kick a power shot, among other things. However, one of EA's most significant changes inFIFA 23is the free kick system. This, of course, also affects how players execute penalty kicks.
Penalty kicks are one area players cannot afford to mess up inFIFA 23. Penalty kicks are the difference between winning and losing matches in most cases, therefore players must master the new free kick system if they want to excel at penalty shots.FIFA 23 drops on September 30.
Scoring penalty kicks in FIFA 23
The composure ring will appear on players' penalty kick lines. Players should wait until the ring is at its lowest level before kicking.
Be aware of the new aiming technique. Instead of seeing a reticle on-screen when players are about to kick, players will see a line between the goal posts. This line will show players where their ball will initially go, making sending it to an undesirable location more difficult.
The Composure Rating is probably the most noticeable change that players will notice with their free kicks. This is a feature that EA has introduced for penalty kicks, and the developers want it to play a big role in determining whether or not players succeed in their shots.
The best thing about this new aiming technique is that players won't have to constantly change their aim. They can simply concentrate on kicking for the most power possible. In previousFIFAtitles, players removed the second button-press required to time-finish penalty kicks. Because of this, players can't aim the ball at the goal posts.
InFIFA 23, EA dramatically altered how penalty kicks and free kicks work. Players will see if the changes were a success or a hit and miss when the game ships on September 30.
