Konami recently announced its new football game, eFootball, and thus a departure from the classic model of the PES series. Since then, there has been a lot of speculation about the initial scope of the title, before Konami now officially speaks out and confirmed: It’s just a better demo at first.
The official Twitter account for the new eFootball has confirmed what has been speculated about in the scene at times. When the new football offshoot of the PES developers appears in autumn 2021, it will be “basically a demo,” according to Konami.
The corresponding comment can be found in a Twitter thread, in which various questions from fans about the free-to-play launch of the game were picked up and answered. The reason given in this regard is: “We want people to get their hands on eFootball as soon as possible. So we will start with a limited selection of teams and modes.”
More details will follow when the launch really gets closer, but it is already clear: Compared to the new FIFA 22, the scope of eFootball will initially be extremely manageable.
It had previously been confirmed that there would be no microtransactions at all at the start. All content of the initial release is therefore regularly accessible and available. Further content has been promised for the autumn season, but whether and how you may have to invest money here will not be announced until a later date.
eFootball will have a cross-play function between the platforms; but here you will also be able to use filters. Local games can also be played with CPU opponents. The release is planned for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and Mobile; There is no specific release date yet.
