It was alleged to be so totally different with Konami’s much-vaunted swap, not solely of title away from the Professional Evo model but additionally to a model new enterprise mannequin, making a gift of its base soccer recreation totally free in an effort to lure away FIFA gamers sick of predatory microtransactions.
And it may need labored, had eFootball not been so riddled with points at launch leaving FIFA with a transparent run to this yr’s title.
To be truthful we haven’t even reached V1 of eFootball at this stage. This week’s patch – 0.9.1 was alleged to land on October twenty eighth however we are actually listening to in an apologetic tweet from Konami that will probably be held again till early November.
Konami’s assertion mentioned: “Our hope is that the extra time taken will permit us to make sure the expertise is improved for all of our customers.
“We’ll announce the date and particulars of the fixes as quickly as they’re confirmed. Within the meantime, we are going to proceed to work on bettering the sport and sit up for working with you on eFootball 2022.
“Thanks in your persistence.”
It’s clearly good that Konami has realized that they want extra time to get issues proper. There could be nothing worse than issuing a patch that also left huge swathes of the sport unplayable.
A lot merriment has additionally been aimed on the recreation’s graphics with renders of poster boy Lionel Messi being in contrast on-line alongside FIFA 22’s ultra-realistic Frostbite engine model.#
As you may count on, the feedback within the announcement delay tweet had been removed from all constructive.
We aren’t writing off eFootball at this stage. PES was an amazing recreation, however Konami has set themselves a rocky highway to restoration to wind followers again, however hey, if No Man’s Sky can do it eFootball can.
