Konami's Pro Evolution Soccer series has had something of a cult following for decades, and for many has been the go-to FIFA alternative. With FIFA 22 showcasing it's latest incarnation just the other day comes word that PES is getting a new name, eFootball, and a new approach.

In that it's going free-to-play on consoles, PC, and even mobile. Development is also shifting to the Unreal engine alongside new tech to improve player animations and a focus on realistic 1-1 soccer.

"It all began with the implacable determination to create a revolutionary soccer platform," writes Konami. "Our ambition was to recreate the perfect soccer environment, from the grass on the field, to the players' movement, all the way to the crowds in the stadium. To this end, we decided to create a new soccer engine with a newly built animation system and revamped game commands."

As the new model implies, there won't be yearly installments but instead an evolving game across multiple platforms. As per the roadmap below, cross-gen play is coming day one with full cross-play to follow alongside additional features.

Plus, renowned teams like FC Barcelona, Juventus, FC Bayern, and Manchester United.

The only question now is how it will be monetised and what will actually end up as "free".
