It’s been a long wait, but after 6 months since its initial release, eFootball version 1.0 will hit the market on April 14th. Konami released a statement informing of all improvements and novelties which will bring its new sports opus after more than two years of development and a more than catastrophic pre-launch.
Konami is aware of the sad state of the newly appointed eFootball (legendary saga formerly known as Pro Evolution Soccer) when it launched its early access/beta phase last September. A version too advanced and far from the quality standards of previous opuses. This is why the Japanese publisher begins its press release by apologizing to the community.
Improvements and novelties
In terms of improvements and new features, everything looks good on paper and it looks like Konami itself could see what eFootball was missing 6 months ago. The defense system has been improvedreadjusting the controls to the classics of the saga and adding a new option: shoulder load. A new mechanic that will allow us to steal uncontrolled bullets more aggressively.
It has also been improved pass system, giving the AI better decisions when passing and receiving the ball. Another new mechanism is the “Have a great time“, which will allow special trajectories, improve the offensive rhythm and the death pass.
The attack has also been improved by adding new trajectories to the shots, more speed of execution and a new type of shot: the Impressive shot. Regarding dribbling, improvements have been made to ball tracking, left stick usage and sprinting.
Finally, also eFootball connectivity has been improved, offering a client-server connection for the first time in the series. A new online structure that aims to improve connection quality and avoid the many invalid matches seen at launch. In terms of strategies, classic functions have been implemented absent at launch such as “formation change” or “individual instructions” and response time has been improved.
“Creative Team” mode will be renamed”Ideal team” and it will have a facelift compared to its initial idea. In this new mode we will be able to create a team according to our tastes and adapt the players to our style of play.
