eFootball PES 2021, which was already a smaller, cheaper update with fewer changes than usual compared to PES 2020, now has a “Lite” version–and it’s free. The new iteration of the game is available today on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and it includes full access to myClub mode.Players who download this free version of the game will let you build up a super team, sign a manager, and guide your team to victory. It’s the most popular mode in PES, so having access to it for free will be a boon to anyone who didn’t pick up the latest PES at launch. The PvP Matchday mode is also available. This mode recreates historical matches and moments, and lets you relive them. You cannot play this mode online, but you’ll be able to play with a friend in the same room.You can watch the trailer for the new free-to-play game below.
Publisher Konami has also announced the beginning of the 2021-21 season eFootball.Open tournament. Players of the console and mobile versions of the game, including this Lite version, are now able to enter through the online qualifiers, so if you think you’re a top-tier PES player this is your chance to prove it.PES 2021 (including the Lite edition) is also playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X through backwards compatibility, although there’s no dedicated next-gen version this year.
