After a period of criticism and ridicule due to its limited content and endless problems, eFootball has started to get back on the right track, if only partially, after it got the 1.0.0 update last month with the new “Dream Team” game mode; however, it will be discontinued in the near future. eFootball has been criticized and ridiculed due to its limited content and endless problems. The online multiplayer phases will take place at the end of May for a period of four days as an initial maintenance period before the launch of the second season. This will take place before the debut of the second season.
A statement was issued on the game’s official Twitter account notifying players of the approaching downtime and offering an apologies from Konami for the length of the maintenance period that would be taking place. The statements made by the publisher indicate that during this period of downtime, players will only have access to an offline trial match. This provides players with a limited selection of Teams to choose from, which can then be used for either multiplayer over a local network or matches against artificial intelligence.
The maintenance period will expire at the end of this month, at which point version 1.1.0 will be ready for release. The launch of the second season activities will take place two weeks following the day that the update was released. The statement continues as follows:
Update 1.1.0 will include improvements in win/lose decision-making in online matches, improvements in server capacity and preparation for future initiatives such as data sharing between home entertainment platforms and smartphones.
The maintenance period will run from May 30 to June 2, demo matches with some leagues and clubs will remain playable, with two new options added to demo matches: Beginner difficulty and 10-minute matches.
It is noteworthy that the second season is scheduled to start on June 16, which will be accompanied by many in-game events, and it is assumed that Konami will share more details with us in the coming period.
You won’t be able to play eFootball online for 4 days – in preparation for the new season!
