    There was no separate squad update, as far as I can see. (And the transfers aren’t up to date.) But the new starheads come with the update.

    Not all, can’t see paredes and choupo-moting in PSG
  • You'll see the updated starheads straight away but the player who had generic before wont update until there's a squad update. Last time it took ages for the the squad update to drop.

    Ah, OK. Thanks for clearing that up.

    That’s too bad. Won’t be starting a new career, yet, then...

    Not sure why we have to start new career modes as with the one I started in September, McBurnie's face had been updated a month or 2 after without starting a new career. At first he didn't have his beard but now he does.

    FIFA faces in the frostbite engine work in values:

    When a player has a generic face: the value is ticked "No".

    When a player has a starhead or custom face, then the value is ticked "Yes".

    When they make a change in the value (for example the adition of thenew PSG face patch) all previous saves will not include the update with the faces, BUT when they update a face (Neymar for example) it WILL update the previous made saves because the value was already ticked "yes".

    EA sports made the visuals (faces, kits, stadiums etc.) not seperate from the database, which means having to restart every career mode save to get the visual updates..

    Hope this was helpfull! :)

    I knew this, but just wondering if you know why PES can include them? Is it just a line of code Konami uses that EA doesnt?

    Yeah, It is probably the way PES coded the game. They have visuals (faces, kits etc) seperated from the database (squads).

    21 will be released for PS5 but you won't see 'next gen' until 22 or 23.

    because the next iteration of frostbite won't be finished until then.

    They should move away from the Frostbite brand all together and develop an engine specific for Fifa and its needs.

    According to this something connected to Pumas is coming January 23. Most likely more faces from them, so new update should be coming tomorrow.

    never going to happen, ea bought dice because they wanted them to build an engine for their whole brand. frostbite is here to stay.

    So other than the alleged Pumas UNAM facescans possibly coming out today, how much more facescan updates can we expect before the big CONMEBOL update in March? (2 to 3 more updates) ?
  • We’ve already lost 2 new faces that came with the update, Carlos Lopez & Ramiro Sanchez nice one EA 👍🏻 Ramball & Dominguez have also been removed, but I’m sure there’s a few others that have gone that I have missed

    Cause PES customizer isn’t separate it’s one only when they add new players it will not be in your squad. when update the Database in update live squads it filters through in the save game. YOU also edit player outside of Master league and pulls through. I think Ea’s saved games are instances could be wrong that saved what you started with cause keep on calling back the same instance you saved. Certain settings are saved to that instance
