Select a manager that applies your favorite formation and tactics, train your players to ensure they are at their peak performance, and take on the world! There will be a plethora of weekly tournaments that are based on real-world matchups, providing a fresh and exciting experience for everyone. More game modes will be added through future expansions, so keep an eye out for those too! ■ Modes Available in This Version Game modes: ・Local match using 9 preselected teams. ・Challenge events, available against AI opponents and human opponents online, using authentic teams. *Challenge events may not be available in the first few days. *Cross-gen Multiplayer games: Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

In PR terms, it's the world's costliest public beta. There's a lithe control system in the wreckage, but it'll take many updates to dig it out.

A disastrous start to the post-PES era. The only consolation? It surely can't get any worse from here.

A shameful launch of a barely playable, graphically embarrassing game that shames the memory of PES and may have killed the new franchise before it's even begun.

Even the decision to take a year off was universally applauded, but after two years of development this is the game Konami has released? The next big update is supposed to bring in some new modes and game mechanics, so I wouldn't fault anyone who deletes the game and gives it a go then because, at this point, there's only one direction eFootball 2022 can go, right?
