eFootball, the new incarnation of Konami's football simulator formerly known as Pro Evolution Soccer, finally has an official release date. Players will be able to land on what is one real free to play platform starting from September 30th, or one day before the exit of the main competitor, FIFA 22.
On day one, eFootball will present itself only with some very first modalities available: players will be able to compete in online matches and in PvP events or choose to play matches locally against their friends (or against opponents managed by the AI) by selecting one of the nine teams available at launch:
- Bayern Monaco
- Manchester United
- Sao Paulo
- River Plate
This will only represent a small appetizer of the complete eFootball experience that will start in effect next autumn with the first big update. According to the roadmap already unveiled a few weeks ago, it will only be at that moment that Konami's project will actually enter full speed, with the introduction of the other teams, a modality "Creative Team" to play online and with which to challenge players from all over the world, the arrival of the Match Pass and the introduction of the full cross-play between console and PC (at launch it will be implemented only partially between players of the same platform for Xbox and Playstation users).
The picture will then be completed in winter, when eFootball will kick off competitive tournaments and will also introduce players on Android and iOS platforms to the platform.
