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.

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.
