Increase in the Number of Teams and Leagues in Authentic Teams
As a result of user input, eFootball previously declared in a road map that they would increase the number of teams and leagues available under Authentic Teams as part of the winter upgrade. Users had speculated about this expansion after this update because it is the final one of the year. This would be compensated material. To unlock these Teams/Leagues, you must either pay money or possibly a particular number of eFootball Coins. Users were not particularly interested in the offline form of Authentic Teams. More teams to pick from while playing against them, though, might sway some people toward this option. However, it was not added to the v2.3.0 file. More teams to pick from while playing against them, though, might sway some people toward this option. So, it is safe to say that this expansion is definitely on the cards in future updates.
Introduction of Cross-Platform Matches
For fans, this is possibly the most thrilling information. Cross-Platform Matches were to be introduced with the winter update, Konami said earlier this year. That is, through online matchmaking and the friend match lobby, console and mobile players can compete against one another. However, this feature has not been added in today’s update. It would be fascinating to observe how they implement this change and if they fulfill their promises or not.
The inclusion of a few editing features
Additionally, Konami had mentioned making some editing tools accessible to users after the winter update in 2022. Therefore, we can assume that the game will get some editing features in further updates as it was bypassed in this update file.
Inclusion of Master League for mobile devices
For those who are unaware, Master League is a premium feature in eFootball 2023’s console edition. It resembles FIFA‘s Career Mode in many ways. Konami is currently working on bringing Master League to mobile devices. It will, however, be available as paid content. Although no specific date has been given as of yet, Konami intends to release it as part of one of the version updates sometime in 2023. We need to keep an eye out for more information from the Developer House about it.
If the developers honor their promises, eFootball has a bright future. It would be interesting to see how they implement the cross-platform play while simultaneously eliminating all the bugs. Even though it is premium content, Master League will undoubtedly attract some new players to this well-liked soccer game.
