Konami Digital Entertainment Limited has announced the release of its flagship football IP, “eFootball,” for the new year. The upgrade includes “eFootball 2024” and a slew of other changes and enhancements for players of all skill levels and backgrounds to enjoy.
Partner Club updates
KONAMI has kept a list of partner clubs that includes some of the sport’s most renowned teams, such as Manchester United FC, FC Bayern München, Internazionale Milano, AC Milan, Arsenal FC, and FC Barcelona, with whom KONAMI recently reaffirmed their long-standing agreement.
These and other teams’ outfits, stadiums, and squads will be modified in-game to match the new season, with some of the world’s greatest transfer news stories surrounding them this summer.
“eFootball™” also remains the only place where users can play in such iconic venues such as Allianz Arena, Spotify Camp Nou, San Siro, and Stadio Olimpico.
New gameplay features
The gameplay in “eFootball 2024” will be updated in a range of ways. Based on input from existing players, KONAMI has made many adjustments to the game to improve the immersion and realism that “eFootball” provides.
The primary gameplay modifications are around dribbling and defending. Improved control reactions will allow users to imitate the split-second judgments made by great football players, allowing players to control the ball more closely and even dribble through tight areas.
Individual skill improvement will allow players to better coordinate their teams and tactical models, resulting in greater goal-scoring possibilities on the virtual pitch.
Introducing ‘Boosters’ for more exciting Team Building
‘Boosters’ are a new feature in “eFootball™”, giving users the ability to further enhance the attributes of their favourite players. ‘Boosters’ will allow players to perform beyond the normal parameters (99 limit), meaning users can exaggerate the individual skills and attributes of various players within their ‘Dream Team’.
Lionel Messi remains as Global Ambassador
KONAMI is proud to announce the continuation of its partnership with Lionel Messi. The Argentine legend will remain as cover star as well as being the face of multiple commercial and in-game campaigns in and around “eFootball™” worldwide. He will also be the namesake of the new ‘eFootball™ 2024: Leo Messi Edition’– now purchasable on [PlayStation®5、PlayStation®4、Xbox Series X|S、Xbox One and Windows] as well as the ‘Premium Ambassador Pack: Leo Messi’ for mobile and Steam® .
In this edition, users can not only download “eFootball™”, but they will also receive an exclusive Messi Epic card equipped with the new ‘booster’ feature, a set of 10 Highlight players consisting of his previous team mates, 11 set of 4,000 EXP, and 300 eFootball™ coins.
Earn big with the ‘Startup Campaign’
With the introduction of the new ‘Startup Campaign,’ players of all levels, whether new or old, may take advantage of the many goodies waiting for them in-game.
Users can earn four ‘Chance Deals,’ 360,000 GP, 60,000 EXP, and 120 eFootball Coins through a sequence of Login Bonuses. Furthermore, players might gain 400,000 GP, 120,000 EXP, 100 eFootball coins, and 4 Skill Training Programs by completing campaign achievements! Together, these in-game assets may form the groundwork for some great Dream Teams that can be tailored to every user’s playing style and philosophy.
“eFootball 2024” is already available, but it will continue to improve and adapt in order to provide its users with the greatest possible experience and simulation of the sport they love.
