It’s been a strange year and that was hammered home no more than when Konami did away with the usual annual update to their PES series to deliver the eFootball PES 2021 Season Update to players. But thankfully there is still some kind of normality to life with the usual data pack drops for the game. Data Pack 2.0 is now with us and not only does it deliver a host of new player faces and team kits, but Stevie G will also be making an appearance.
The first major post-launch update for PES 2021 sees the introduction of over 150 player face updates, more than 200 new kits and the biggy – the addition of Steven Gerrard as a Master League Manager. And it’s all available right now as a free download on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
So, Data Pack 2.0 brings the latest league, club and player data for numerous countries including those of Italy, Spain, Turkey, Belgium, Switzerland, Brazil and China. In addition to that over 200 teams have received the latest real-world kit updates, with the likes of Belgium, England, France, Netherlands and Portugal just a small selection of the 24 National teams getting a wardrobe upgrade. But that’s not all and Arsenal, FC Barcelona, Celtic FC, Juventus, Manchester United and AS Roma will also be turning heads in their newly updated third kits.
Further to that, over 150 player faces have either been created or updated as part of the latest Data Pack. From Konami‘s official partner clubs, this includes Ansu Fati (FC Barcelona), Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus), William Saliba (Arsenal), Albian Ajeti (Celtic FC) and Francisco Trincão (FC Barcelona), but you should expect to see some changes to more than 150 players in total.
For all the visual makeovers though, it’s the arrival of current Rangers FC manager Steven Gerrard as a Master League Manager which will get many excited. If you’re a Master League player, getting access to a legend of the game in managerial form will be something you shouldn’t ignore. You can throw in some new boots from the likes of NIKE, PUMA, UMBRO, MIZUNO and Joma too. But that’s not all and the unique “Full Celebration 3” drops for select Iconic Moment Series players too – you can trigger it by hitting L3 in-game after scoring.
Sitting alongside the arrival of Data Pack 2.0 and starting from today, PES 2021 will also see the release of new Iconic Moment Series players within various myClub campaigns, with more to follow next month:
- October 22 – Ronaldinho (Iconic Match: 08/03/2005)

If you are an eFootball PES 2021 Season Update player, then you’ll find all of the above available in your game from today. Make sure you fire it up, hit the pitch and take it all in.
