Pro Evolution Soccer’s successor eFootball has a $40 ‘premium’ pre-order including microtransaction content that can’t be used until two months after launch.
Although the game is free-to-play, a pre-order has just gone live on the Xbox and PlayStation stores revealing an “eFootball 2022 Premium Player Pack”, priced at $39.99 / £32.98.
This bundle includes the base eFootball game, 6 ‘Chance Deals’, 2800 eFootball Coins and a further 2 Chance Deals for pre-ordering in advance.
However, none of the Chance Deals or eFootball Coins can be used until “after the update scheduled for mid-November of 2021”.
What on earth have Konami been doing for these past few years. It's sad seeing PES have such a fall from grace like this.
