Pro Evolution Soccer is one of the legendary football games that has been ahead of EA’s FIFA series from time to time and has been lagging behind in recent years. But it seems that the PES brand will no longer be a part of our lives.
No, Konami has not canceled the game; instead it changes its name and format. The name of the series is now eFootball and it becomes a free-to-play game with cross-platform play on all platforms.
Of course, Konami does not just change the name of the game. We need to be ready for overhauled graphics, major updates to the animation department, and game improvements. Details will be announced later.
series producer Seitaro Kimura, ” , starting with the strong foundations of the Unreal Engine that allowed us to drastically overhaul player expression, we’ve made a number of changes to virtually create a new football game engine that will power eFootball for years to come. eFootball delivers our most realistic game to date, with the added power of next-gen consoles and working closely with football players” he says.
The game will offer local matches of 8 teams such as FC Barcelona, Juventus, FC Bayern, Manchester United for free, and new content and modes will come later through updates. Some game modes will be available as optional DLC packs that players can purchase based on their preferences.
