PES 2021 will therefore be remembered as the last episode linked to the historic Konami brand, which over the years has become a real guarantee of quality
The choice, however, was not taken well by the fans, to the point that « RIP PES » quickly became a trend on various social networks.
It is also true that eFootball will be totally free, however, something that has certainly tickled the palate of players all over the world.
Now, Konami has announced via Twitter that eFootball will not abandon offline modes and will instead add various extra modes, including Master League , as an optional paid DLC to be released later.
The news comes after confirmation of a series of features that will be included in the new simulator, such as cross-platform matchmaking, which will be added free-to-play game between autumn 2021 and winter 2021.
Below, the upcoming content roadmap (via PSU ):
Early Autumn :
