Japanese entertainment company Konami has announced that it will permanently cancel its popular game PES and replace it with eFootball, and it will be available for free on desktop, laptop and mobile devices this fall.

Initially the popular soccer game was called Winning Eleven, then Pro Evolution Soccer and now eFootball. Konami again changed the name of its game as part of an overhaul of how the game works in line with the modern game style.

Konami said in a statement on Wednesday that eFootball is an “all new, free football simulation platform” developed in the Unreal Engine and will be released this fall on PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and Steam, before launching later on iOS and Android.

Cross-platform play will be available after launch, but cross-generational play will be available at launch, and local matches featuring Barcelona, ​​Juventus, Bayern Munich, Manchester United and others will be available for free at launch.

Konami will announce which clubs and other play options will be added in the future, and some of these models will be paid for, although Konami has not yet confirmed the details.

One of the distinguishing features of this new iteration of PES games is what Konami calls “movement matching”, as this technology “seems to transform the wide range of players’ movements on the field into a series of animations, with the most accurate in real time.” .” , which means there are four times more animations in the game than in previous versions.

“Starting with the strong foundation of the Unreal Engine, which has allowed us to dramatically evolve players’ expressions, we made some adjustments to create a new virtual football game engine that will power eFootball for years to come said Setaro Kimura, Konami game producer.

Konami promised to reveal more information and details about the game at the end of August.
