The developers recently confirmed the rumours that their annual football game would not be a full new title, but instead an updated version of the game.

This came with the news that they had put all their focus into the launch of the next-generation version of the game to release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

The official eFootball PES 2021 Season Update website has gone live, with a number of details regarding the release.

Owners of PES 2020 or PES 2020 Lite will get a 20% discount on the release, while the Standard Edition and Club Edition will be available at a special price.

Detailing the Season Update, Konami stated, "The eFootball PES 2021 Season Update brings you all of the critically acclaimed features that won us E3 2019's 'Best Sports Game' award, plus more!

"As the PES franchise celebrates a quarter of a century since its debut in 1995, we invite you to join us once again as we head out onto the pitch for a new action-packed season of football.
