eFootball 2022 has announced a series of planned upgrades that will be released over the next 18 months.
Taking to Twitter to confirm the news, Konami started by saying: “We have received lots of feedback and questions on eFootball 2022 from our users, and in response we would like to introduce some of the planned updates after version 1.1.0 onwards.”
The free updates will include the introduction of Lobby Match “in which users can create rooms online and play matches between teams created in Dream Team” which is due for release after summer 2022.
They also confirm some editing functions will be available in winter 2022 alongside cross-platform across consoles and PC.
As for paid upgrades, eFootball will be expanding the number of teams that can be used in leagues and club modes, with the update coming by the end of 2022. Additionally, at some point during 2023, Master League will be introduced.
Thank you for playing eFootball™ 2022.

Not a lot is currently known about the open-world-inspired take on Sonic The Hedgehog, but the new 38-second video sees the hedgehog up to his old tricks – grinding on conveniently placed tracks, destroying giant robots and running about the place – with no apparent restrictions.
