eFootball™ STARTS “FOOTBALL FESTIVAL” IN 2023
A brand new tournament of 40 National Teams and a host of limited time events await you in eFootball™
Konami Digital Entertainment Co., Ltd. announced today that eFootball™ 2023 has entered its “Season 2” and will hold a series of events and campaigns, some of which are starting today, with the theme of “Football Festival”.
Added to the game are a total of 40 National teams that can be selected in limited-time offline “Trial Match” and online “Dream Team” modes, and “National Team Packs” of Japan, Brazil, Argentina and France.
In addition to the “International Cup Experience”, an AI tournament event where users can play as one of the 46 available national teams, there is also the eFootball™ International Cup, a challenge event where players represent their nation with a total prize pool of 1 billion eFootball™ Coins. It continues in 2023.
There are now 40 teams in the “Trial Match”
As part of the eFootball™ 2023 offline mode, the “Trial Match” is in the game for a limited time for gamers to choose one of the 40 national teams and play.
These teams are playable from Wednesday, November 16, until mid-February 2023.
In addition, 2v2 matches can now be played offline, so console players can enjoy eFootball™ easily with their friends.
“International Cup Experience” continues
The “International Cup Experience” (“International Cup Experience”), a tribute to 2022’s worldwide football calendar, is coming to eFootball™ 2023. This experience will allow players from 46 countries to compete against the AI and compete in both the group stages and the knockout rounds to play to the top of world football.
This experience will continue from Thursday, November 17 to Thursday, January 12, 2023.
Also, the “eFootball™ International Cup” is already underway, where users can win over 1 billion eFootball™ Coins!
The “eFootball™ International Cup” has been running since Thursday, October 20th and will end on Saturday, December 17th.
New National Team Packs
Four more National Team Packs are available to assist eFootball™ players with different gaming experiences. These packs will contain 11 players from each country and will allow novice players to make their starting 11 rosters stronger. Experienced eFootball™ players will thus have the opportunity to further strengthen their “Dream Teams”.
Released National Team Packs include:
- National Package: France 2022 (November)
- National Package: Argentina 2022 (November)
- National Package: Brazil 2022 (November)
- National Package: Japan 2022 (November)
Each National Team Pack will also include a player who will appear as the “Big Time” card, the new theme for Legendary cards.
What is “Big Time”?
“Big Time” is the new theme for the “Legendary” eFootball™ player cards. These cards can belong to old or new players, and with a special card design, they pay homage to the players’ most memorable moments on the field. This will allow users to potentially recreate (or do better) these moments in eFootball™ 2023.
