At SpecialEffect we have used the Two Button control scheme in FIFA with many of the people we have worked with since it has been part of the game This mode reduces the gameplay controls down to two buttons and one joystick

In FIFA 19 EA have also added One Button controls which reduces the controls further to just one button alongside one joystick These controls can be used throughout matches in FIFA including online In this video we will take a look at how these one button controls work on Xbox One, PlayStation and PC, when using a game controller You can select to use this mode at various points in the game To play the intro using these controls, you can go to either "Select Sides" or "Customise Controls

" After you have played the intro, on the Welcome page you can select the controls you will use throughout the game with your profile Beyond this point you can change them in "Customise Controls" in settings either before a match or during a game As with all control schemes in FIFA, the left stick is still used to control player movement and kick direction The one button used is the "A" button on an Xbox controller and "Cross" button on a PlayStation controller In a standard game (in which you are controlling the entire team) when in possession, it is used for all types of kick, such as ground pass, cross and shoot depending on the situation

Sometimes you may be expecting to shoot but a pass will be played instead and visa-versa, but with practice you learn in which situations a certain type of kick will likely be played When out of possession the button is used for both standing and sliding tackles depending on the circumstance Like Two Button mode, there is auto sprinting when your player has the space to run, however unlike Two Button mode, pressing the sprint button manually won't have an effect With the controller on screen you can see how the joystick and button are used in different gameplay situations to achieve different outcomes In a player career mode, in which you control just one player within a team, when you don't have possession yourself you use your gameplay buttons to call to teammates

For example, pressing the pass button when a teammate has the ball will call for them to pass it to you Pressing the shoot button will call for them to shoot With One Button mode you only have one button to do this so you may need to play more patiently Getting into a good position and waiting for a pass rather than calling for passes, as often a call may result in a call to shoot or clear the ball, rather than pass depending on the circumstance When playing in "Career" or "The Journey" modes, you complete training drills to help to progress your career

These will need additional controls to those when playing a match using one button Some drills may use a joystick and one button, however this might be an alternative button to the one used during matches Other drills may need more than one button To make the menus more accessible with just one joystick and reduced buttons You can alter a couple of settings in the accessibility settings to remove the need for bumpers and triggers and the right stick
