PES Officially Renamed to ‘eFootball’ + Fan WhatsApp Group
Konami, the official developer of one of the most popular football games in the world, Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) has changed the name to eFootball.
Pro Evolution Soccer, popularly known by many as PES has been one of the top football games in the world and has served gamers for over 25 years. Over the years, the name has always been Pro Evolution Soccer (PES).
But now, that is going to change after Konami officially announced on Wednesday 21st July 2021 that they will be changing the name from Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) to eFootball. If you are a PES follower, then you might have realized that the 2020 version of the game was called eFootball PES but now there will be no PES attached to it.
This news was revealed after an official reveal trailer was released on the official YouTube channel of eFootball (the video has been embedded below).
This rebranding is expected to take place when the new release comes out in early autumn this year. The game will be released on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Android, and iOS devices.
In addition to the rebranding, the game will now be a digital-only, and free-to-play game. When the game is released, you will be able to play exhibition matches and a selection of 9 teams (clubs) to play with but as time goes on, Konami promises to add more features.
Also added to eFootball is the new cross-platform feature. With this feature, a user on either Xbox, PS, Android, or iOS device will be able to play against each other without any restrictions.
In terms of the graphics, eFootball is built on Unreal Engine which has allowed the developers to unveil their Motion Matching animation system. This according to Konami “converts the vast range of movements that players make on the pitch into a series of animations, selecting the most accurate one in real-time”.
