Announced as a transitional episode, eFootball PES 2021 Season Update picks up in September the essence of its critically praised predecessor. No big news to be expected, therefore, except for a few small changes here and there on the content (gameplay) and form (mainly updated content).
Marketed this Tuesday at around 30 euros on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via Steam), the Japanese football simulation is entitled for the occasion to a long launch trailer.
This retraces the career of the main muse of the license, Lionel Messi, from his early Argentinian childhood in Rosario to the peak of his career at FC Barcelona. Between real images and in-game sequences, the video also highlights Konami’s various partner clubs (Arsenal, Manchester United and Bayern Munich in particular).
Finally, note that unlike its rival FIFA 21, eFootball PES 2021 will not offer a version designed for the next generation of consoles (Xbox Series X / S and PlayStation 5) at the end of the year.
