Lobby matches permitting customers to play matches on-line between groups created in Dream Team will arrive “after summer time 2022”, whereas “some modifying features” will are available wintter 2022. Cross-platform play between consoles and PC can even arrive in winter 2022.
“The variety of groups that may be utilized in leagues and membership groups will be expanded and distributed as further paid content material by the top of 2022,” reads one other tweet. “Master League will be available as further paid content material throughout 2023.”
Master League is a well-liked mode from earlier Pro Evolution Soccer video games in which you’ll be able to create and handle a soccer group in round-robin tournaments. Konami introduced they’d launch Master Leagues as paid content material for the free-to-play eFootball again in 2021, however the sport has had a bumpy life since launching final yr. eFootball 2022 rapidly turned the worst rated sport on Steam after launch, which makes “we’ve obtained plenty of suggestions” within the tweet above fairly the understatement.
In the aftermath of that rocky launch, Konami indefinitely postponed eFootball’s DLC and refunded gamers who had pre-purchased it in an effort to give attention to bugfixes. Since then, the sport has hit 1.0 with improved ball physics and different new options added.
eFootball 2022 apparently feels higher to play now because of these updates, however there’s nonetheless a relative paucity of commonplace options and modes inside the sport. These updates deliberate for 2023 due to this fact appear a good distance off.
