Konami Digital Entertainment Limited has launched the 2024 update for its flagship soccer title, eFootball, bringing in Lionel Messi as a Global Ambassador as well as many gameplay improvements.
As announced, the update brings forth eFootball 2024, launching with many additions for players of all abilities and experiences to enjoy.
Lionel Messi Remains as Global Ambassador
The publisher is proud to announce the continuation of it’s 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, which is now purchasable on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Windows PC, as well as the Premium Ambassador Pack: Leo Messi for mobile devices 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.
New Gameplay Features
The game will also see a series of updates made to the gameplay and main changes are centred around dribbling and defending.
Based on a series of feedback gathering from existing players, Konami have implemented various changes to the game to further enhance the immersion and realism that eFootball brings.
The improved control responses will allow users to replicate the split-second decisions made at the elite level of football, thus enabling players to control the ball more closely and even dribble through congested situations.
The enhancement of accuracy in individual skills will enable users to coordinate their team and their tactical models to a superior level and create more goal-scoring opportunities on the virtual field.
Boosters are a new feature added in eFootball, giving users the ability to further enhance the attributes of their favourite players.
The feature will allow users to perform beyond the normal parameters of 99 limit, meaning users can exaggerate the individual skills and attributes of various players within their Dream Team.
Various types of boosters will be available in-game, including ones that are player-specific, ones that affect the entire team, and ones that appear by selecting players who meet certain criteria.
This feature will allow users to build teams with a greater freedom, variety, and enjoyability.
Partner Club Updates
For the Partner Club updates, Konami have retained the rosters including some of the sport’s most iconic teams including the likes of Manchester United FC, FC Bayern München, Internazionale Milano, AC Milan, Arsenal FC, and FC Barcelona – with whom Konami recently renewed their long-standing partnership.
These teams, and more, will see their kits, stadiums, and squads updated in-game to reflect the new season, with some of world football’s biggest transfer news stories having surrounded 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.
Whether a new user, or a efootball veteran, users of all levels can make the most of the various rewards waiting for them in-game with the launch of the new Startup Campaign.
Through a series of Login Bonuses, users can gain 4 ‘Chance Deals’, 360,000 GP, 60,000 EXP, and 120 eFootball Coins.
Furthermore, through the campaign achievements, users could add 400,000 GP, 120,000 EXP, 100
eFootball™ coins, and 4 Skill Training Programs.
Together, these in-game items can lay the foundations to build some incredible Dream Teams,
personalised to the playing style and philosophy of any user.
The developers said that eFootball 2024 will continue to evolve and adapt to bring its users the best possible experience and simulation of the sport they love.
