    The 2021 OF still work on 2020? In which case, that's a pint's worth of cash saved!
    I think so yeah. May as well get the newer version for the sake of a few quid though.

    Reading the IGN article now. Fortnite style battle passes, 9 clubs at launch, ML potentially added as paid DLC later and fucking Drury and Beglin on commentary still. Won't lie, was looking forward to a new engine and all for this year's game but my interest is waning.

    It sounds awful. They must have done their research and think people will pay, but from Twitter, it's a resounding "no"

    Unfortunately we, and the way we play, are no longer the target. My son plays loads of DLS, and it's a brilliant (if basic) game with a big online community and worthwhile micro-transactions. If I were Konami I'd be trying to rip off that model too.

    My son has just got the ability to play PES in coop in the last week and it's all he wants to do. So if this is as shit as it sounds it's going to cut me deep.

    RIP PES is trending on Twitter ahead of any mention of eFootball, which I don't imagine is what the team wanted to see today.

    Hahahaha...ahhh these absolute jokers. You can give FIFA all the stick it rightly deserves but at least they give you a finished product year in year out. Someone in marketing seriously has got some Billy Big Balls to pull this kind of shit. It's like they actively think you're a moron who's willing to pony up for basic features. Fuck Konami

    Its free.

    Saves me the 25 quid i normally spend on it every year to play about 10 matches thesedays.

    The whole game has been a bit shit for a while outside of the on pitch action.

    Although that's a lie, i played the EURO 2020 DLC a lot the last few weeks, but if they release that for a tenner or whatever every time there's a world cup or euros on, that might work.

    Ridiculous that the biggest sport in the world is only going to have FIFA as a viable option for a game. Which is almost unplayable now it's so bad.

    I don't really think they give a fuck. This to me just looks like them grabbing their last few bucks from the franchise with help from the partner clubs/players they've signed up with to help carry a little bit of interest while never having to commit to major yearly gameplay updates ever again. They can just run it on a skeleton crew and shutter it whenever it stops making financial sense and carry on raking it in with their pachinko stuff.

    FIFA's such a bipolar mess itself these days. They'd totally do the same if they could get away with it and didn't have all these licenses to justify. They've clearly only given a shit about FUT for years now.

    It still saddens me how Konami used to make some amazing games back in the day. Now they're all about gyms and pachinko machines. At least they've seen sense and started licensing out their IP to studios because they can't be arsed anymore

    2 years to make the transition to next gen they said. This roadmap they've put out is an embarrassment. The game is quite clearly not finished. The fact that I can't just play as the team I support is massively off putting.

    No doubt they're going to try and sell us the single player components at a later date but why isn't this an option at launch? What have they been doing for the last 2 years?

    FIFA has been terrible of late, I'll see how FIFA 22 plays and if it's half decent I can see myself going back. Konami have absolutely fucked it

    Is anyone really surprised with this though considering Konami's past form?
    I've gone back to Football Manager after a few years out and it's depth and immersion is phenomenal.
    PES2021 was too broken despite a few good things and Fifa 21 was arcadey, shallow nonsense. There's a bit in Wesley's preview of Fifa 22 where he says something about all his players doing their best Beckham impression. That's exactly the problem as there's no individuality about it.
    PES 2022 should have been building on what it had but again they shoot themselves in the arse.

    Thatís really disappointing. I assumed they skipped 2021 to give it a proper go on the new consoles, maybe with a new and improved master league.

    Hoping fifa can come good but I highly doubt that.

    @THFourteen but the on the pitch action is the point. It's still a great football game. Yeah, the menus, badges etc are shit. But the game itself is still great.

    I am so disappointed. It looks a mess and no offline play means it can get in the bin.

    Let's get this straight, if this fails (and by fail I mean its quite clearly already failed, there is not other console release other than fifa amirite) then there's just.... FIFA.... (shudders)

    Just forced myself to watch the reveal for this, thought maybe Iíd be pleasantly surprised. Wow it looks shit. Defendersí feet clipping through the grass, which is now just a flat green surface by the looks of it. Thatís on a video designed to show it off. I feel stupidly sad about it.

    It's definitely the end of an era type sadness. It'll be telling if my son gets in to it. He's all over F2P stuff but Fortnite is the only thing he's bothered putting cash in to.

    I imagine it will get some attention, it is free after all. But whether or not they can retain all the players is another thing. With any of these types of games it all comes down to how many substantial updates are there going to be within say 3 months, 6 months, a year. You would like to hope that adopting this model means any bug fixes or complaints can be addressed more easily, but based on past games, I wouldnt get my hopes up.

    It's the fact that it's playable on mobile which is the biggest alarm bell for me. It's going to be shit.

    Indeed. The whole "we're just testing the net code, it won't look like this" was clearly bollocks. That's exactly what it's going to look like and it looks like arse.

    Given how FIFA is only ultimate team these days surely now is the time for someone to chuck a little money at a new football game?

    Please?
