eFootball Release Date

The eFootball release date has now been confirmed!

eFootball 2022 will be released on Thursday, 30 September 2021.

However, we expect the game to be very basic at the time of release, as Konami has warned us it will be 'like a Demo' when it first comes out.

Unreal Engine

Those worried about what graphics PES 2022 may support on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One don't need to panic.

It is still to be confirmed whether PES 2022 will be running off Unreal Engine 4 or 5, but either way - both will support Previous Gen consoles.

Unreal Engine 5 is set to bring Hollywood level graphics to the video game industry, but we still don't know exactly when Epic Games will roll out.

The improved engine is said to be arriving "late in 2021" but with delays commonplace in the industry thanks to the pandemic, who knows when it could arrive.

The above trailer also shows how Unreal is progressing on "metahumans" - how humans are depicted in video games.

This could be incredibly significant for PES 2022 - bringing the players on the pitch to the next level.

Of course, for top-level graphics and performance you will still want to be playing on PS5 or Xbox Series X, but still expect an improvement on Last Gen consoles for PES 2022.

Option File

The best thing about playing PES (or now eFootball) on PlayStation is the use of Option FIles.

Unlike Xbox, PS4 and PS5 support the use of option files, allowing you to download the unlicensed "official" kits from the community
