eFootball™brings its users the ability to link up online in friendly matches using their Dream Teams as well as some new card packs to bolster their squads
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. can today announce that it has added ‘Friend Match’ mode to the console version of eFootball™2023. With large swathes of the online community requesting the feature, users can now use their Dream Teams, match with friends, and test their personalised squads and tactics against one another.
The feature is now available across platforms including PlayStation 4®, PlayStation 5®, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows®10, and PC Steam® devices.
Four new Club Packs
To help users bolster their Dream Team squads, ready to take on their friends, eFootball™ will see the introduction of four new Club Packs from official partner clubs including FC Barcelona, Manchester United, FC Bayern Münich, and Arsenal.
Each pack will contain 11 ‘Highlight’ cards, one for each position in the starting team. This brings users a comprehensive package, balanced across positions to allow them to build a strong squad. These packs are useful as they can enhance even a veteran’s Dream Team options, or give a novice the ideal starting point from which to build theirs.
The version 2.1.0 update will also bring a new Premium Ambassador Pack for our recently added ambassador: Portuguese international Bruno Fernandes. This pack will include an ‘Epic’ card version of Fernandes, recreating his stellar form from the 2020-21 season, one in which he contributed 45 direct goal involvements in just 58 competitive fixtures for Manchester United.
The pack will also include 10 ‘Highlight’ cards including players who have players for either Manchester United or the Portuguese national team, including cards for both Luke Shaw and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Premium Ambassador Pack for fellow eFootball™ ambassador Trent Alexander-Arnold has already been released and is still available to purchase.
