With the arrival of eFootball 2022 now imminent, what can Next Gen players expect from the new franchise?
Check out everything we know so far about eFootball on the PlayStation 5 below.
Latest - What will the Cross-Platform graphics be like?
The introduction of cross-platform play is a fantastic addition to the game!
But, there is a widespread concern that the graphics and gameplay could take a hit when paired with a console less powerful than your own.
Konami has stated that the graphics will not be downgraded, regardless of your opponent’s platform as each console will maximise its graphics capabilities.
Alongside this promise, there are multiple matchmaking filters to make sure you are happy with who you are matched up against.
eFootball Release Date
We will see eFootball arrive before FIFA 22 this year!
The latest news from Konami is that eFootball will be released on Thursday, 30 September.
Next Gen Trailer
Konami has not yet released a specific Next Gen trailer for eFootball, but we do have our first taste of the brand new game!
Check out the Official eFootball Reveal Trailer below.
It seems Konami are trying to improve the fundamentals of the game to try and create the greatest football head-to-head experience in gaming.
Could eFootball follow NBA 2K21 and have different cover stars for the Current Gen and Next Gen versions?
It's a given that Lionel Messi will be one of the players gracing the cover, with the others likely to come from the other main partner clubs - Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Juventus.
Cristiano Ronaldo also lined up alongside Messi for PES 2021, but if they decided to go for a legend for the Next Gen or superior editions, it is likely to be a Barcelona legend like Ronaldinho, or perhaps someone who's played for both Barca and Juve, like Thierry Henry or Edgar Davids.
We could also see new eFootball partner Neymar Jr on the cover, despite PSG having signed a deal with EA Sports until 2024.
