Konami have revealed the list of content additions to eFootball 2022, and despite being a free-to-play game it seems that some of the key modes and features will require players to pay for them.
The game, formerly known as Pro Evolution Soccer (PES), was fully rebranded and Konami decided to go the free-to-play route.
After a disastrous launch, the game started to recover with the latest updates fixing some of the biggest problems.
However, one of the criticisms of the game from players was that it could feel a little bit more like a demo than a full game.
And it seems that if players want the full experience, it will eventually come at a cost, with the much-loved Master League mode only releasing next year, at a price.
Added to this, players will also get access to a number of new teams later this year, but it will also be in the form of paid content.
See the full list of paid and unpaid content in their statement below:
