FIFA 19 Controls

Are you looking for FIFA 19 controls? U4gm provides a complete FIFA 19 controls guide. This guide contains full controls configuration for both stationary game consoles - PS and Xbox - as well as PC in two varieties: keyboard, and keyboard + mouse. You should be familiar with most of the controls and can help you bang in more goals. Choose your platform from the list below to see the complete control details:

 

Movement

The game-changing animation system, which brought player personality and increased fidelity in movement to EA SPORTS FIFA, returns with increased coverage across the pitch. Enhanced animations for tactical shielding, impact balancing, and physical jostles bring realistic player movement, responsiveness and personality to new heights.

Attacking

To win a game in FIFA 19 you need to score goals, and to score goals you need to be good at attacking. First off, you need to get familiar with all attacking controls in FIFA 19. Take note that there are two types of controls for attacking in FIFA 19: Simple and Advanced. Go through every single control and memorise which button does what action:

Defending

Speaking of defending, it always feels awful when you're desperately scrambling back but can't select the right player you want - allowing your opponents sweaty, pacey winger to dribble past with ease. EA have thankfully made things a lot easier for us with the introduction of a second cursor. As well as the red cursor which shows which player you're controlling, a grey cursor will appear on the next player you'll switch to when pressing L1/LB. It's one of our favourite changes  it doesn't interrupt the gameplay but makes the whole experience much smoother while removing a large source of frustration. Paired with the new 50/50 battles FIFA 19 may be the first time we actually enjoy defending.

Tactics

A re-imagined system gives players the tools to set multiple tactical approaches, offering in-depth customization pre-match, as well as more options for dynamic in-match adjustments from the D-Pad. Each tactical approach combines formations, mentalities, and attacking and defensive play styles, enabling you to easily customize your play in any situation.

Goalkeeper

That subheading may sound like a bad thing at first glance but it's actually a very nice addition to FIFA 19. When the ball rolls to the goalkeeper from the opposition, he will keep the ball at his feet if there are no players nearby. This allows you to start a counter-attack swiftly and adds an extra bit of realism to the game. Goalkeepers using their feet and playing out from the back is an increasing trend in football, so it makes sense that we will occasionally see keepers doing the same in FIFA 19.

Free Kicks

You can approach FIFA 19’s free-kicks in multiple ways, but we’re going to focus on two basic formulas - curved and driven. It’s best to opt for curved kicks when the dead-ball situation is just outside the box, while driven-type free-kicks are often reserved for long-range scenarios.

Corners & Throw Ins

FIFA 19 has a targeting system for corners: Aim with loopy marker and set power to kick the ball, Switch players, Shoot and score. Below you can see the controls on PlayStation and Xbox/PC gamepad controllers for taking and scoring corners in FIFA 19.

Penalties

In order to begin, press the left-analogue-stick in any direction. If you want a high penalty kick, you need no more than 2 bars and if you want a low penalty, a tad over 1 bar should suffice. In addition to this, you can also change up your starting position using the right-analogue-stick. For the penalty shootout, choose someone with decent shot values and never let the bar reach more than 50% or the ball will fall next to the gate.
