”It all began with the implacable determination to create a revolutionary soccer platform.
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.
The final result was even more impressive than we had originally conceived.
We went beyond the border of PES, into a new realm of virtual soccer.
To signal this new era, we have decided to part ways with our beloved PES brand and rename it “eFootball™”!
Now we hope that you can enjoy this brand-new soccer experience that eFootball™ has to offer.”
Gamescom 2021 will be a 100% digital event and will take place from August 24 to August 27, you will be able to watch the full event for free on its official and affiliated channels.
