eFootball - the new free-to-play game from Konami - no doubt has plenty to offer. Replacing the PES series, this game has taken major strides forward in showing what can be achieved, without a hefty price tag.
However, fans of the preceding PES series have certainly started making noises about their wish to see some classic features return to eFootball, with Master League and Become A Legend the two main ones mentioned.
With that in mind, we want to take you through everything we know about the potential return of Become A Legend in eFootball 2023.
eFootball Become A Legend
Become A Legend was a popular mode included in the PES franchise.
It allowed you to fully craft a career for a custom player, or you could choose to play as a pre-existing star.
Much like FIFA's Player Career Mode, Become A Legend rose to prominence due to its depth and immersive features.
Not only were you battling on the pitch, but meaningful cinematics and off-pitch drama also made this mode feel far richer than what EA had to offer.
When eFootball was released, fans were disappointed that both Master League and Become A Legend were absent, but that could change in the coming months.
Konami has confirmed that Master League is confirmed to arrive in eFootball sometime in 2023, which is much better than the silence we'd have regarding the mode prior.
The mode is confirmed to arrive as paid DLC in eFootball, with Konami departing from their free-to-play model in order to bring it back.
Right now, there's no confirmed price or release date for the Master League DLC - but we know it will drop in 2023.
The return of Master League could provide a positive sign for the return of Become A Legend, with the implementation of this mode potentially acting as somewhat of a Guinea Pig.
Right now, Konami hasn't confirmed any plans to re-introduce Become A Legend into the eFootball franchise.
Unlike Master League, Become A Legend hasn't been mentioned since the PES series was abandoned.
If Become A Legend is to return in the future, it would be a matter of years, not months, before we see the mode return.
Don't Lose Hope
eFootball's stock is certainly rising, with more licenses being secured and expansions always being made.
Whilst the news that Become A Legend's implementation is a long way off will ultimately be disappointing, we know that things can change so quickly, and the passionate fanbase behind this game mode could force Konami to change their stance and bring this classic mode back.
If Become A Legend is to return, we imagine it would arrive as paid DLC, as we have seen for Master League.
