PES 2022 is a free-to-play football simulation game

The long-running football series has been completely rebuilt in Unreal Engine for this free-to-play entry, with an overhauled animation system that offers four times the amount of animations for a player as before, creating highly realistic movement.

Konami has announced eFootball, a next-gen free-to-play football game, which sees the Japanese publisher dropping the PES (or Pro Evolution Soccer) branding in favour of the eFootball title.

“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,” said Producer Seitaro Kimura. “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.”

eFootball will be a digital-only release, and will be launching across Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile, with full crossplay across all platforms. Konami has released an early roadmap for the game, which will launch in early autumn. Later in Autumn, new online leagues and a FIFA Ultimate Team-like mode will launch, before a winter update sees full crossplay support and the kick-off of an esports tournament.

It’s a big change for Konami’s beloved football series, but going free-to-play could be exactly what PES needed to properly compete with FIFA’s annualised full-price released. You can check out the reveal trailer and roadmap for the game down below.

eFootball launches on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and mobile in Autumn 2021.
