Yesterday, Konami confirmed that eFootball PES 2021 would not be a huge leap forward for the football franchise, stating that this year’s game will be more of a season update with a lower price. Today, Konami confirmed that eFootball PES 2021 will release on September 15th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam for €29.99 / £24.99. This version of the game will include the latest club and season updates as well as the UEFA Euro 2020 content.
In addition to the Season Update standard edition Konami is also releasing special Club Editions on digital stores. These Club Editions will have branded menus, exclusive kit, myClub Squad content and Iconic Moment Series players. The clubs that are partnered for this promotion are FC Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United, FC Bayern, and Arsenal FC. These Club Editions will be priced at €34.99 / £29.99.
Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami, said:
“PES 2021 provides our players with award-winning gameplay and the latest season data, plus fully-exclusive teams and content, at a compelling price. I want to thank those players and our dedicated community for their support as we transition to the latest hardware and an all-new engine that will redefine football simulation.”
The first PS5 and Xbox Series X version of PES will be eFootball PES 2022. The game is being developed but will not be tested until mid-2021 at the earliest, with a view to releasing in the latter half of 2021.
