The new season of PES 2021 is available for a month now and the updates are bringing more items to the game. The season update received mixed reviews, and even we reviewed it a while back. In the latest news, just after the Datapack 2.0 Update, KONAMI recently brought new additions to the game with the ‘Purchase to Unlock’ Iconic Moment Series in the v5.0.1 update. In this new update, players can go to the shop and then buy the special PES 2021 Iconic Moment Player packs of currently active players. For now, the players are Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Marcus Rashford. These players are added to the current list of Iconic Moments available after the PES 2021 season update, with more to come.
New Iconic Moments Series packs in Shop
This was a huge surprise to the players, as there were no expectations of an Iconic Moments pack coming as a purchase option to mobile. After the announcement on the official site was made, players were keen to know what the pack contained. After the game was live, the players were able to see what the new pack really was.
There are Three Iconic Moment players available with a unique title given to the pack version. The three packs available are as follows:
- “Step and Fire” Marcus Rashford
- “The Kiss” Lionel Messi
- “High-Flying” Cristiano Ronaldo
Each player will have match specific celebrations that you can see in the game while you celebrate a goal. This is very interesting as these players had the same Iconic celebrations in their real-life matches as well.
The pack also contains the following items other than the Iconic Moment player:
- 1600 MyClub coins
- 2x Black Ball agents
- Original Player Menu theme of the player you purchase
For each pack, the cost is $16/1,399INR. On the first look, it might look pricey but for the items, it is a worthy pack for the price. However, it depends on the players’ preference.
