Check out what eFootball is all about

Konami has made a massive decision in turning away from the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise, but many fans are wondering, what exactly is eFootball?

So, we're bringing you everything you need to know about the brand new game below.

What is eFootball?

Konami has announced that PES will now be known as 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.

For all you die-hard PES fans out there, think of it as a re-branding of your beloved Pro Evolution Soccer series.

However, this announcement does suggest that popular game modes like Master League and Become a Legend will be no more - but we don't yet have official confirmation of this.

eFootball will be available worldwide first on PlayStation5, PlayStation4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 and PC Steam.

The game will then be made available on iOS and Android soon after.

When is eFootball coming out?

We don't yet have an official release date for eFootball - but we know, thanks to the Roadmap, that it will arrive in early Autumn.

Judging from previous PES releases, we think the new free-to-play game is likely to arrive around Tuesday, 7 September.

Later in Autumn, online leagues will open, and cross-platform matches with console and PC will commence.
