Konami has now cleared up any doubt and confirmed that Master League will be available as an optional DLC.
There will be more offline modes available too, but there is a catch.
What is eFootball?
eFootball is an all-new football simulation platform from the makers of PES and Winning Eleven.
It will be completely free-to-play and will be rebuilt in Unreal Engine.
eFootball represents a fresh approach for the long-running franchise, previously known as Pro Evolution Soccer.
Master League will return
Despite all the changes and the game now being free to play, Master League will still be available.
However, the offline mode will NOT be free to play but can be bought as an optional DLC.
It is not just Master League that will be available though, with other offline game modes set to become optional DLC's too.
The arrival of next gen consoles has meant that crossplay is almost a necessity for new games.
Konami has revealed that eFootball will have crossplay available "with a new engine and adjusted to take full advantage of each platform."
Will this have a negative impact on graphics and response time on next gen consoles? Only time will tell.
