New Features

We've compiled some of the key new features from the gameplay trailer below.

Controlling the ball touch

"Players will be able to control the strength of kicking the ball as well as determining dribbling speed; from a knock-on all the way to a full dash, just as in real football.
"In addition, on PlayStation 5, eFootball will make use of the controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers to feel the difference of player movements."

Tricking the defender

"With greater freedom to control how the player will trap the ball, each play becomes a mind game. A wide array of dribbles and body feints are also available with intuitive commands.
"In combination, these ensure that every single duel offers an exciting moment for both attacker and defender."

Steal the ball and create chances
