EFootball 2022: September 30th will be one of the most important days in Konami’s history: this is the date scheduled for the launch of the new eFootball 2022. The new game changes practically everything from the traditional Pro Evolution Soccer series, from the engine to the way the game is marketed : from now on, it will be free-to-play. Just download and start playing.
The new eFootball 2022 will arrive free for PS5 and PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC (via Steam or Microsoft Store).
At first, all game content — just a few teams and leagues — will be free, but when more options arrive, users will have to open their wallets. If you want to continue playing for free, you can too, but only with those few teams and leagues.
This in-game microtransaction system, called “Match Pass” is slated for release in the fall of the northern hemisphere, spring from here — meaning it should hit gamers later this year. But to find out what we’ll be able to enjoy on September 30th, read on.
Nine teams to play online and offline
In the release released to the press, about the launch, Konami seems to focus a lot on the online gameplay of the new eFootball 2022. It will already be possible to play both with people who have the same console as yours, as with another generation, despite the disputes between platforms are scheduled for the end of the year only. In the future, it will be possible to play with mobile.
In these online games, you can use “Authentic Teams”, which are real life teams. So far, only nine teams will be available, five from Europe and four from South America:
FC Bayern Munich
It is also possible to use these nine teams in “trial” matches, against other players or the AI, but without worth points. The “Creative Teams” tool, to create your own team, with the players chosen by you, will also arrive only in the fall/spring of 2021. The fact is that, as Konami had recently announced, this launch on the 30th will almost be a demo of the game coming out in the next few months, a few features per release.
