Konami has once again apologised for the disastrous state of eFootball at launch, and has promised an preliminary repair will launch on twenty eighth October to handle a number of the points which have been memed on-line. Since its launch final week, the soccer sim has become the butt of all gaming jokes, with movies of referees embedded within the turf and monstrous expressions from stars like Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Japanese publisher said that v0.9.1 – unsurprisingly, we’re not even at v1.00 but – will “give attention to fixing the problems already reported and people you proceed to report”. We’re going to imagine the agency is referring to the damaged netcode and bugs particularly, and never essentially the unusual gameplay quirks, just like the turgid passing system.
The organisation mentioned all alongside that this initial release of the free-to-play footie foray would successfully be a demo, with a November replace anticipated so as to add in key options just like the collection’ Final Workforce various. YouTubers did get to play a considerably newer construct throughout behind closed doorways demos, which is outwardly loads higher than what has been publicly delivered so far.
Sadly for Konami, the harm has already been accomplished and it faces a protracted highway again from this.
