@loonsfan5710 I left it on the console and uninstalled it only after I verified the next-gen version was working well. Btw I launched the next-gen version when it was "ready to start", so no need to wait for the full installation.

From what I read here and there, I feel it may depend on the monitor/tv you are using (maybe the very first time you launch the game? I really don't know).

@palinaol I've tried this with numerous different cable arrangements, including the one that came with the console, and two different 4K TVs and I'm getting the same result. Console version is 10.0.19041.5481

 

I've tried with this the Xbox iOS app and I still get the same results. Granted it was on my iPhone 12 Pro since I don't have an iPad available at the moment, but honestly I'm getting tired of all of this hocus pocus so I'm going to just skip any further troubleshooting until I hear something official from EA about this issue. I'm on at least 5 reinstalls, including 3 just in the past two days. 

 

Really appreciate your suggestions but if EA doesn't think it's worth their attention to investigate/troubleshoot with me officially, I'm not going to waste any more of either your time or especially mine doing their jobs for them.

@loonsfan5710 I confirm the same sw version. I understand your frustration.

Should you want to want to try again, I was using the default HDMI 2.1 cable on a 1440p monitor and I reset the monitor settings prior to launching the game.

But yeah, If you are fed up and don't mind playing the old gen version, just do that until an update is released.

@palinaol Yeah, I'm pretty done with trying out different combinations of the uninstall/install sequence and display configurations. The original release is good enough for now; really a bummer since I was hoping to enjoy the next gen experience a little more.

@xConsty This game is looking like a PS3 game on the Series S

Same problem here. The close ups of the players are fine, but when it switches to the birds-eye-view camera when you play the game, all the players have a motion-blur type effect around them, kind of like a trail. I reinstalled the Xbox One version and it looks ten times better when it comes to actually playing the game. There’s also a flickering on the player card when I score a goal on next-gen. suuuuuper annoying

@loonsfan5710 I dunno if you've tried this but try this... xbox settings>TV and display options>video fidelity & overscan>overrides then choose HDMI, go back to video fidelity & overscan, and change the resolution to 1440p. for me the game looks how it's intended too but, i lose in-game commentary for some reason. it may be a problem with my monitor... Not too sure but it may work for you

You lose commentary because you need to then change your audio settings from surround to stereo.... 100% there is a fault with the graphic quality on the game I have the same issue it’s looks horrible on my screen assassins creed looks perfect so does Forza etc fifa looks like it’s from the PS3
