It’s been a weird old year, with our way of life changing dramatically. And that change is also being felt in the gaming scene, with Konami doing away with their standard annual PES title to instead deliver a quick footballing fix via a full eFootball PES 2021 Season Update.
Delivering all the features and gameplay elements from eFootball PES 2020, Konami have today confirmed that the eFootball PES 2021 SEASON UPDATE, will be the next title in the eFootball PES franchise. Due to hit Xbox One, PS4 and PC (via Steam) on September 15th 2020, it’ll be available at a considerably lower price than normal, with things starting at RRP €29.99 / £24.99.
eFootball PES 2021 Season Update takes the base PES 2020 and boosts it with the introduction of all the latest player and club data for the new season, with a day one patch sorting out the movers and shakers. Further to that though will be the inclusion of the official UEFA EURO 2020 content again, more Iconic Moments and multiple editions in a range of flavours. And if you’re in the market for updating your football experience with eFootball PES, you’ll find the pre-orders going live right about now.
Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. commented: “As we take the necessary time to lay the foundations for the future of the eFootball PES franchise, it is important for us to look back at our legacy and continually strive to improve all aspects of the game. “PES 2021 provides our players with award-winning gameplay and the latest season data, plus fully-exclusive teams and content, at a compelling price. I want to thank those players and our dedicated community for their support as we transition to the latest hardware and an all-new engine that will redefine football simulation.”
