Starting with the strong foundations of Unreal Engine, which has allowed us to massively overhaul player expression, we’ve made a number of modifications to virtually create a new football game engine that will power eFootball for years to come. With the added power of new-generation consoles and by working closely with elite footballers, eFootball delivers our most tense and realistic gameplay to date. We’ll share specific gameplay details next month, so stay tuned.

The new game, the first in the series to be built with Unreal Engine technology, will be available in a digital-only capacity starting early Autumn on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 and PC Steam, with Android and iOS due to follow later. KONAMI is planning to roll out various eFootball features, including full-fledged crossplay, according to the roadmap below.

Early Autumn:

All-new gameplay experience, powered by Unreal Engine
Cross-generation matchmaking (i.e. PlayStation5 vs. PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S vs. Xbox One)
Local Matches featuring FC Barcelona, Juventus, FC Bayern, Manchester United and more
Autumn:

Cross-platform matchmaking between consoles and PC (i.e. PlayStation 5 vs. Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 vs. PC Steam, etc.)
Team Building Mode (Name TBC) opened – build your own team by acquiring players
Online Leagues (Name TBC) opened – take your original team and compete in a global, competitive league
Match Pass system – earn items and players by playing eFootball
Winter:

Mobile controller support added
Full cross-platform matchmaking across all available platforms including mobile when using a compatible controller
Professional and amateur esports tournaments kick-off
According to the developers, a new technology called Motion Matching will convert the vast range of motions that real players can make into a series of animations while selecting the most accurate one in real-time. You can now take a look at the official eFootball reveal trailer, which also features ambassadors Messi and Neymar Jr. as well as Andrés Iniesta and Gerard Piqué, who have served as official advisors for offensive and defensive gameplay.
