With FIFA World Cup 2022 coming up, eFootball did have a lot at stake since the change from PES to eFootball wasn’t easy, and the fans of the game weren’t considering that switch to be pleasant either. But with these events coming and the updating of the game in terms of seasons, it has become a very good development in the creative side of the game.
The Football Festival-themed event is packing a lot of excitement with the events, especially the Cup tournament against the AI sides will be interesting for the players. The rewards and player packs also look neat, and the Match Pass will also get the players going for rewards and the objectives might also see a refresh. Overall, this is something worthy of a wait.
