Konami’s initial launch of efootball was marked by issues, prompting them to pledge an update that would address those problems – something which will finally take place later this month.
This update brings with it a brand new Co-op mode and also improves gameplay – read on to discover more! Furthermore, changes have been made to the dribbling system to alleviate issues related to responsiveness and close control issues.
Friend Match Mode
After much anticipation, Konami’s free-to-play football replacement for Pro Evolution Soccer finally released their much-awaited Friend Match mode after several delays. Users can test out their customized Dream Teams against those of their friends online matches while unlocking four new club backs packs from official partners to strengthen their squads further.
Season 3’s Friend Match update expands Trial Match mode to include teams from the four European leagues, while new ‘Match Room’ allows players to create private lobby that can only be entered via Room ID. Furthermore, Co-op mode has been improved and matches played during Online Quick Match or Friend Match modes will now count towards Objectives.
Bruno Fernandes now comes with his own ‘Premium Ambassador Pack, featuring an Epic Fernandes card showing his 2020-21 season form and 10 Highlight cards featuring other Manchester United squad members like Shaw and Cristiano Ronaldo. Player slots can now gradually increase to 900 using GP; Team Training costs have been reduced; while Friend Match feature is now available across PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One; Konami also released an apology statement regarding its delayed release, promising that it would make up for it in spades!
Improved Co-op Mode
Konami issued an apology following the disastrous launch of eFootball by promising that they will make continuous enhancements to it. Their latest change includes adding an improved Co-op mode that enables players to participate in matches alongside friends; furthermore, more subs are now available per match and friendly matches can now contribute towards fulfilling Season Passes.
The new co-op mode is part of a commemorative update honoring Konami’s 28th anniversary with its football titles. It is currently live across mobile and console, and features improved versions of Friend Match mode as well as new rewards and challenges.
Key changes include an improved coaching interface that enables coaches to monitor the development of their players more closely, and modifications made to passing trajectory so that players can respond more responsively when controlling passes. Furthermore, through balls will now be played directly towards more appropriate areas instead of locking onto specific players.
Creative Teams will also be introduced as part of this update, providing players with a way to customize and build their own club. Konami says players will be able to sign footballers and coaches that fit with their style of play to form a dream squad and then compete against others in Creative Leagues in hopes of becoming the ultimate champion!
Improved Online Matchmaking
KONAMI has revealed an array of changes for their football game eFootball 2023 v2.6.0 that are tailored to feedback from its community. Furthermore, Co-op mode will now be available when playing with friends as well as more subs being available during matches and friendlies now contributing towards Season Pass progression.
Konami has been working to make changes since it released the title back in June, when issues arose at launch state. They issued an apology and promised regular improvements through patches and tweaks; and so far have delivered on this promise by improving fan experiences through regular patches and tweaks.
Konami has implemented changes that will make the game feel more realistic, including fixing several bugs that were annoying players and making AI more accurate in attacking runs. Furthermore, tweaks were implemented that will improve their passing trajectory for increased realism.
Konami will continue to add new features and content to their game in the near future, such as Creative Teams mode. This mode will allow fans to compete in weekly online events with pre-set teams using pre-determined rosters for rewards like GP currency – Konami did not announce an exact date when this mode would debut; they only stated it will launch shortly.
Konami recently issued an official statement acknowledging their missteps at launch and pledged that eFootball will receive updates regularly to enhance gameplay and content. Although major features, like Club Licenses and single player modes remain absent from eFootball, Konami has made strides toward rebuilding its franchise’s credibility.
This latest update has focused on improving gameplay in several key areas. For instance, the dribbling system has been modified to better handle tight spaces when handling the ball dribbled by players; previously they often struggled to maneuver out of tight spaces while playing passes close-quarters was inconsistent and ineffective. These adjustments should provide much more realism to gameplay.
Another significant change involves revamping how AI controls players. Now, players will move more intelligently, and the team should have more coherent movement as a whole – which should make the game feel more realistic while helping bridge the gap between FIFA and PES.
Finally, the game has expanded its lackluster stadium selection by including several well-known stadiums that should add some realism and provide a better sense of place, particularly during offline matches.
