Not only will PES 2022 get a new engine – a new name, new game modes, a new version style, and on top of that, it’s FREE!
Konami has officially rebranded the Pro Evolution Soccer series to eFootball and it will be a free, all-digital game coming this fall for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC and iOS – Writes TheGeek. Android versions will follow the rest, but Konami declined to comment on a possible Nintendo Switch release. This winter, all versions of the game will have cross-play, although mobile players will need to use consoles to play against consoles and PCs.
This is an important step for the football series (now called eFootball worldwide, not PES in the West and Winning Eleven in Japan) and it has also evolved from Konami FOX’s engine to a new engine specially developed with Unreal 4. Most importantly, every version of The game, from next-generation consoles to mobile phones, will be functionally the same (unlike Fortnite) – which likely means that the highly successful PES Mobile will also be discontinued or replaced.

Speaking to IGN, series producer Seitaro Kimura explained that eFootball aims to get closer to the “platform” with regular updates — eFootball will not have paid annual releases, but the platform will receive free annual updates for new seasons.
EFootball will start with demo matches and will apparently play with a selection of 9 clubs (see table below for a full list). It will then sell other game modes as optional DLC, apparently allowing players to pay for whatever they want outside of the game. MyClub has yet to be mentioned, which is the PES FIFA Ultimate Team equivalent, or Master League, the series’ long-running career mode – although it does seem likely that the former will be represented by an “unnamed team building mode” that will come after its release.
It’s still somewhat unclear how new teams will enter the game, and the exact breakdown of eFootball’s game modes and monetization won’t become clear until later. However, Konami says the game will be “fair and balanced” for all players despite the move to a free-to-play model – which appears to include Battle Pass-like versions called the Match Pass.

Although eFootball’s style is very different from PES, IGN can enhance a recurring element: Popular Options files (which allow players to customize and share most of the game, including unlicensed teams) will be available. files) – although support will be added after release and we don’t yet know how it will be implemented or if they will make it to Xbox platforms first.
EFootball will launch in a simplified format and will include more game modes, teams, platforms and cross-play options as the year progresses.

The move to the new engine has also allowed eFootball to be complemented by a new motion-matching animation system that Konami says allows four times as much animation as previous PES games. This is similar to FIFA’s recently announced HyperMotion animation system, but Konami notes that Motion Matching will be applied to all versions of the game, even on mobile devices.
Konami says it will announce more about eFootball gameplay and online modes in late August (around Gamescom 2021).
