Konami announced today that its new free-to-play sports platform eFootball 2022 will receive its first season of content on September 30 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. The update will also mark the launch of the platform on iOS and Android.
At launch, eFootball 2022 will feature the ability to play against nine different real-world teams either offline or online. The teams featured are FC Barcelona, FC Bayern München, Juventus, Manchester United, Arsenal FC, SC Corinthians Paulista, CR Flamengo, CA River Plate, and São Paulo FC. Players can also choose between six different stadiums. The online play will be cross-generational, meaning PS4 and PS5 players can play together, as can the two latest Xbox generations.
The company also detailed plans for an Autumn content update, which includes what it calls Creative Teams. This mode allows players to create teams by signing players based on their preferred playstyle and train them up to be able to compete with the best teams in the world. There’s also a wealth of customization options drawn from over 600 different teams worldwide. The new Creative League allows for competition between Creative Teams, pitting them against each other in competition for rewards across ten games.
