eFootball PES 2022: revamping the classic
As you can guess, the game is a renewal of the previous PES with improvements in the simulator and different new features, that must be said that in some aspects, it has been controversial when it comes to its PC and video console versions. Keeping in line with its style, Konami has decided to enhance the simulation aspect of the game, improving its realism in terms of graphics, based on Unreal Engine, as well as in the behavior of the players, both offensively and defensively. Moreover, the controls have been renewed and they try to be as simple as possible to improve the pace of the games.
So, in addition to gameplay improvements and controls adapted to mobile devices, we find features such as the following:
- Possibility to play with real teams such as FC Barcelona, Manchester United, River Plate, Juventus, or Arsenal. However, the number of official licenses is limited.
- Possibility to play with legends such as Beckham, Beckenbauer, Ronaldo, Kahn, or Inzaghi.
- Build your team by mixing current stars with players who have made history.
- Different types of matches and tournaments: leagues, cups, exhibition matches, online challenges, and more.
