The third patch for the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of “FIFA 16” has been released. It brings some stability improvements and, more importantly, some new content for avid players.

The new content comes in the form of star heads for some of the players, particularly those who hail from newly promoted Barclays Premier League teams for the season. There are also new third kits for Barcelona, Roma and Inter Milan.

EA has also been listening to community feedback regarding issues in “FIFA 16.” The patch features some fixes that fans have identified, as detailed over at the EA support page.

“FIFA 16” will now have better online matchmaking, correctly timed team celebrations and correct flags in FIFA Pro Clubs. There are also now fixes for glitches with FIFA Online Seasons record exploits, resets for Pro Club accomplishments and unsaved screen size changes on the PS4.

FIFA Ultimate Team has also seen a few bug fixes with the Patch 3. Compare Price has been improved when using consumable items. Issues involving Goalkeeper as default for Player Roles, mismatched images of balls in settings, Concept Squad displayed as playable squad and opponent’s use of historical kits when in Play a Friend’s Squad have all been resolved. Finally, the default value in Buy Now option is now updated to the max value for items on sale on the Transfer Market.

Also it’s the last call for the Team of the Week for “FIFA 16” Ultimate Team. There is still one day to go to challenge the Team of the Week until Nov. 11. As usual, this is the segment wherein the FIFA Ultimate Team gathers all of the best players around so that players can challenge them in the mode, as stated in the EA Sports page.

The starting 11 players include Samir Handanovic, Luciano Fabian Monzon, Maicon, Laurent Koscielny, Arouna Kone, Granit Xhaka, Sergi Roberto, Riyad Mahrez, Marco Reus, Coutinho and Arkadiusz Milik. There are 12 reserves and five extra players to challenge. Team of the Week items can be obtained with FIFA Ultimate Team Packs, though they are randomly placed in packs.
