PES has been rebranded to eFootball, will be fully free-to-play

Published

on

Konami has officially renamed its soccer game franchise Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) to eFootball, which will come out this Autumn as an only-digital, free-to-play title for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, with a mobile version for Android and iOS coming later.

All versions of the game will feature cross-play, but mobile players will need a controller to play against PC and console users.

It’s a huge rebrand for the game that has been called PES in the West and Winning Eleven in Japan for years. EFootball switches from the traditional annual paid releases that it has been using for years alongside its competitor EA Sports’ FIFA and will focus on providing yearly updates for the seasons instead.

The game will launch with friendly matches and apparently, a selection of nine clubs to play with—Barcelona, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Arsenal, Corinthians, Flamengo, São Paulo, and River Plate—and will subsequently sell the other game modes as optional DLCs.

It’s unclear at the moment how new teams will be added to the game and if Konami will charge players who want to have a broader selection of soccer clubs to play. Konami is yet to reveal its strategy for eFootball My Club, which is the equivalent of FIFA Ultimate Team, and the series’ long-running career mode, Master League, but said that the game is designed to be “fair and balanced” for all players.

IGN has confirmed that eFootball will continue featuring the Option Files, which allows players to customise much of the game, including unlicensed teams, and share those files with friends or the community. The support for Option Files, though, will be added post-launch. The game will no longer run on Konami’s FOX Engine and will use a custom engine based on Unreal 4 instead.

The move to a new engine allowed eFootball to add a new Motion Matching animation system, which Konami says allows for four times as many animations as previous PES games. Motion Matching will be applied to all versions of the game, even on mobile.

It seems that Konami will be a true competitor to EA Sports this year, especially because eFootball will be free-to-play and will allow cross-play between all platforms, a feature that FIFA is yet to implement on any level. These changes have everything to attract the casual player base of FIFA, who is seemingly tired of paying for annual releases and watch EA put most of its effort in the Ultimate Team series, instead of focusing on the career mode, for example.

In-game, though, players have the chance to complete a few objectives in order to earn some cosmetic rewards.

The quest takes place in the Strange Times featured hub. To access this, players will need to change the game mode to Creative. The code for the featured hub is 9106-1254-1261.

On the Creative island, players will see that a particular area has been taken over by the collaboration, with an area mocked up to look like a Balenciaga store. Scattered around the store, players will find glowing, black S sneakers. Players will need to collect 40 of these sneakers in order to complete the quest.

The sneakers can be found all over the area, largely on shelves and tables. Be sure to check both inside and outside of the store, as well as any corners which the sneakers could be hiding. There’s plently about so players should be able to collect 40 sneakers with ease. Once 40 have been collected, the Knights Look spray will be earned and added to your locker.

All new Held Items in Pokémon UNITE: Season 2

Published

on

Pokémon UNITE’s mobile launch has given TiMi Studio and The Pokémon Company a chance to put a fresh coat of paint on the previously Nintendo Switch exclusive free-to-play MOBA. This means that the big 1.2 update for the game was packed full of new content, features, and more. 

One area that the developers decided to expand on was UNITE’s item offerings, adding new Held Items.

Held Items are items that a Pokémon can bring up to three of into battle that will grant it various active and passive effects and boosts. Each Held Item can be upgraded using Item Enhancers, which boosts their level and effectiveness. 

These pair well with Battle Items, which are active items that a Pokémon can use multiple times to apply an instant effect that only lasts for a limited time. 

Related: Here are the Pokémon UNITE Patch 1.2 notes

The dev team wanted to “introduce fresh strategies” alongside the 1.2 balance patch, so they decided to add in three new Held Items—Razor Claw, Choice Specs, and Weakness Policy. The Choice Specs and Weakness Policy are staples of competitive Pokémon in the main series of games, while the Razor Claw is best known for raising critical hit rates. 

Now that all three items are available in UNITE, with each costing 1,000 Aeos Coins or 625 Aeos Tickets in the Aeos Emporium, here is what each does when equipped to your Pokémon of choice. 

Choice Specs

An item that increases the damage of moves by a minimum of 40 base damage when they hit. The higher a Pokémon’s Special Attack is, the more the Choice Specs will increase the damage. 

  • Special Attack increased by 39

Razor Claw

After a Pokémon holding the Razor Claw uses a move, its next attack deals a minimum of 10 more base damage. The higher a Pokémon’s Attack, the more the damage increases. 

When equipped on a melee-focused Pokémon, basic attacks will also decrease the movement of opposing Pokémon hit by them for a short period. 

  • Attack increase by 15
  • Critical Hit Rate increased by 2.1 percent

Weakness Policy

Increase the holder’s Attack for a short period, by a minimum of two percent, when the Pokémon takes damage. The increase grows the more times damage is received. 

  • HP increase by 210
  • Attack increased by 15

Some players unable to claim Pokémon UNITE mobile pre-registration rewards due to new error

Published

on

With the release of Pokémon UNITE on mobile, players who download the game are set to receive a nice collection of bonus goodies thanks to the preregistration campaign that TiMi Studio and The Pokémon Company ran for the game. 

These rewards are only available to players who download the game on mobile, though anyone who has played on the Nintendo Switch can easily link their accounts and grab the rewards without playing a single match on mobile. However, there is an error keeping some players from redeeming the pre-registration rewards at all. 

According to the official Pokémon UNITE Twitter account, when loading up the Events tab from the main menu and navigating to the “Preregistration Campaign,” some players will not have the ability to claim the rewards. 

This does not mean you are not eligible to claim them, rather, it is a known error that the developers are actively working to fix.

Once this issue is fixed, players who were previously unable to claim the rewards should have access to the following bonuses because UNITE cracked 7.5 million preregistrations:

  • 1,000 Aeos Tickets
  • Unite License: Pikachu
  • Festival Style: Pikachu Holowear
  • 1,000 Aeos Tickets

TiMi Studio has promised to keep players informed on the status of this issue, but don’t be surprised if you login and can’t claim your rewards just yet.

Pokémon UNITE APK and OBB download links for Android

Published

on

Pokémon UNITE has finally received a true release on mobile after previous testing phases earlier in the year, and now fans can get in on the five vs. five MOBA action from the comfort of their mobile device.

For Android users, setting up Pokémon UNITE should be as simple as downloading the application from the Play Store. If you aren’t able to install through this method, you can also manually download the APK file.

You’ve got plenty to experience in Pokémon UNITE that hasn’t been available in other Pokémon games and now it can finally be played by those who lack a Nintendo Switch. Here is the process for getting started in Pokémon UNITE via APK.

Download Links

Downloading these files shouldn’t take too long as the APK is around 26 MB, with the OBB being a little larger at 155 MB. You’ll need some extra storage to install the game, though, as it requires 400 MB free on your device.

How to download Pokémon UNITE via APK

  • First, download the two files listed above onto your Android mobile device.
  • Now you’ll want to find and install the APK file. To do this you may need to enable the installation of apps from unknown sources, which can be done via Safety and Privacy settings.
  • Once you’ve installed the APK you’ll need to move both OBB files to Android > OBB > com.tencent.baiyeint.
  • You should be able to play the game normally from now on.
