Konami has announced it’ll release the first major patch for the troubled eFootball 2022 later this month.
A statement posted to Twitter reads: “We apologise for any inconveniences you may have experienced with the game. We are preparing to release version 0.9.1 of eFootball 2022 on 28th October. This will focus on fixing the issues already reported and those you continue to report. We will update you with more details as we move forwards as well as address your feedback and requests in future updates.”
The game launched last week in somewhat of a widely criticised state. Fans complained with reports of questionable character models, player movement and a litany of bugs. An official apology was even issued by the developer, pledging to “strive to improve the current situation”.
Dropping the PES moniker back in July, eFootball 2022 has launched with just nine teams and the ability to play friendly matches. However, it hopes to add new modes, more teams and much more over the coming months. Elsewhere in the world of football games, it came to light earlier this week that EA are considering dropping the FIFA name for future titles.
We’ll have to wait and see how effective the eFootball 2022 patch will be when it arrives on October 28.
