Of course, some of these improvements will not be available at launch, confirms Konami.
eFootball will come into our lives this fall with the promise of revolutionizing the sports games market. And it is that the mythical PES saga forever abandons the traditional model of annual deliveries with this proposal of play as a service what will be available free on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, PC, and iOS and Android devices. In all of them it will offer the same playable experience and modes, in all they will be available the same contents, and in all of them you can play against any opponent thanks to cross play. Even so, and as is obvious, the players of PS5, Xbox Series and PC will have specific improvements that will not be on other platforms.
As Konami promised a few weeks ago, eFootball has been created with consoles in mind. In other words, the company has focused on creating the best possible experience. and then they have adapted it to the lowest common denominator, not the other way around. In The Loadout they have asked for this issue to the producer Seitaro Kimura, who expands the information confirming that eFootball “will use the haptic response and adaptive triggers“of the PS5 DualSense controller, in addition to offering improvements on the new consoles and more powerful PCs.
“Yes OK the core of the game engine is the same for consoles and mobiles, we are working on ensuring that the playable experience is the best on each platform, “explains the producer, before adding the following:” consoles [next-gen] and the PCs High-end allows us to dedicate more resources to the gameplay, so we have included a range of elements that are not possible on mobile phones, such as 3D lawn, realistic movements for the audience, the processing of the movements of the kits, a more enriched lighting and motion blur“.
Not all upgrades will be available at premiereBut not everything will be graphics, the additional power will also allow them to offer more immersive sound, which brings the players into the matches and in the stadiums: “Sound, which is important to create the atmosphere of the stadium, has been recreated from scratch, and the chants and shouts from the audience will add a lot of excitement to the game. “While eFootball will have improvements on the new consoles and on PC, some of these features “will not be available at the premiere”Kimura adds.
And instead they will be added later “with a future update”. Without the ties of annual installments, eFootball will be updated with new content and seasons over time, while game modes such as DLC are gradually added. A risky bet that seeks to break with the bubble of sports games and that has generated a great diversity of opinions among fans. Especially since the free base game is basically a demo, something that has been recognized by Konami itself. Will eFootball succeed? Only time will tell.
