FIFA 19: Hats off to EA Sports for this incredible piece of detail in this year’s game

It's a subtle but welcome addition

FIFA 19 is full of new features – but one’s so subtle it risks going under the radar.

It’s all to do with the crowd, which seems to be have been improved yet again in this year’s game.

YouTuber Vapexkarma noticed that in FIFA 18, flags just appear randomly in the stands – and are not held by any of the crowd members.

However, this year, EA has now added fully animated members of the crowd – tasked with waving team flags.

It’s a small detail, but one that – come replays and cut-aways – really helps the package come together.
