IGN recently reported that Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer series of soccer games has officially changed its name to eFootball. Originally known as PES in the West and Win Eleven in Japan, this is one of the most famous football game series in the world besides FIFA or Football Manager. This move by Konami is expected to bring many changes to the company’s long-running game series.
Konami said that not only will it change the name, eFootball will become a free-to-play game and will only have a digital version, which is expected to launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, iOS and Android next year this fall. It is currently unclear whether the series will have a Nintendo Switch version or not.
eFootball series producer Seitaro Kimura explained to IGN that eFootball will no longer release new games for an annual fee, but rather with free regular updates. Konami will sell the different eFootball game modes as DLC, allowing players to simply pay for what they want.
Konami further revealed that to provide the best experience to all football game fans, starting this winter, all versions of eFootball will support cross-platform play. However, mobile gamers will need to use a controller to play with consoles and PC players.
eFootball will launch as a compact experience with multiple modes, teams and cross-play options. Konami will reveal more about eFootball’s gameplay and online modes at the end of August, at the same time as the Gamescom 2021 exhibition.
