Gameplay Features

Since PES 2021 will be a season update, no major gameplay updates will be featured at this juncture. I have discussed elsewhere why PES is going this route and why it may or may not pay off for them for next-gen systems. According to Konami’s website, here is what you can expect from a gameplay perspective in this update:

Outsmart the defence with ‘Finesse Dribble’, discover the expanded trapping mechanics that will vary depending on your players abilities and feel the context-sensitive kick accuracy. Each player’s individual playstyle will bring another layer of depth to your squad on the pitch.

As updates are announced, we will update this eFootball PES 2021 release guide with the most recent information.

  1. Maybe They technically use a different system but NBA 2K20 allows me (and seemingly plenty of others) to import (and share) images.
    I’ve seen both Konami and Microsoft blame each other for the lack of importing on Xbox but considering what’s possible by 2K, I’m leaning towards Konami being more at fault.
    Based on what was said, there really is NO reason to buy this update at this price. Today I purchased PES 2020 Legends Edition for $9.99 on the PSN Store and the PES 2021 update is $34.99
    That's not an incentive to update. If they had priced it at an attractive price of $14.99 or $19.99 then I might have considered it. You can achieve pretty much the same thing with option files and most of them are free.
    If you buy it for the PC then you can really go crazy with option files and totally change the look of the entire game including the Main Screen.
    I read a Q&A article from Konami and they said the gameplay basically will be the same with the Season update. There could be a few subtle changes but no promises. The Season updates are $34.99 if it's Team specific and $29.99 for the standard Season update.
    The one thing mentioned in the article is that the developer said they are moving to the Unreal Engine but there was no mention if it's going to be UE4 or UE5.
    I'm hoping it's UE5
