Konami has released a new eFootball 2022 update 1.02 (1.0) is now available to download on PS4, PS5, PC and Xbox One. According to the official eFootball 1.02 patch notes, the latest update added brings new changes, improvements, and quality of life fixes. Apart from this, eFootball version 1.02 (1.000.003) also includes controller and camera setting changes.
Previously, a major update added various fixes and tweaks to the game. Unfortunately, since the release, many players are still experiencing several issues when trying to play the game.
Today’s eFootball 2022 patch 1.02 has addressed a few of these issues. Check out more details below.
In-game Events using new licenses will also take place throughout the Season.
The new update changed the default button settings to make defending more intuitive. Pressing commands that were available in previous installments will also be reintroduced into the game.
Furthermore, football patch 1.02 (1.0.0) also added a new command, “Shoulder Charge”, for you to regain possession in a more proactive manner.
Pressure: Regain possession by applying pressure to the opposing ball holder.
Match-up: Jockey the opposing dribbler with a lowered stance and finer steps. This is also effective for blocking passes and shots.
Shoulder Charge: Win the ball back by barging your shoulder against the opposing player. Especially effective when the opponent has touched the ball far from his foot or is trying to trap the ball.
The command “Call for Pressure” has also been implemented in the game. On top of having several players going for the ball, other teammates will also work in tandem to regain possession by blocking passing lanes as well as pushing up the defensive line.
The latest update also made numerous modifications to other elements of the game that are fundamental to defending to provide a more responsive and intuitive defending experience.
The latest patch has generally increased the pass speed so that the pace of the game matches with the aforementioned defense-related improvements.
Moreover, the game devs have also implemented a mechanism that utilizes the rebound of the ball as a force of acceleration. This will be useful, for example, when performing one-touch passes, as the ball speed will increase due to this mechanism. The result of all these changes is a “rhythmic passing game”, which is an important element in modern-day soccer.
Implemented fixes to the following points:
– Improved targeting decisions for passes
– Improved AI decision-making when receiving passes
– Improved movements when receiving passes
Following these corrections, the occurrence of unnatural passing errors has decreased substantially.
Added “Stunning Pass” commands that allow you to kick the ball with various special trajectories. With these commands, you can dictate the rhythm of attack and put in that decisive final pass.
Added improvements to the following 2 points:
– Improved shooting speed with a focus on realism and satisfaction
– Adjusted the rate of on-target shots to appropriately reflect match circumstances
Added a wide range of shot variations and trajectories for each situation, such as the incisive “Stunning Shot”. We believe this can allow you to experience a variety of realistic goal-scoring scenes.
Made significant improvements to the following points to present a gratifying one-on-one experience through realistic motions. These include:
– Better ball tracking accuracy and response to L Stick inputs
– Improved response to Dash inputs
Improved response and ball behaviors for the new “Sharp Touch” command, as well as simpler feint inputs. We hope that these improvements create an enjoyable dueling experience against the opposing defenders.
To improve the stability of online connections as well as to reduce the number of voided matches, we have decided to adopt a client-server system starting from this installment.
We are also constantly looking for ways to improve the response time of online matches.
To ensure the best soccer experience, we will continue monitoring the situation after the update and make improvements as needed.
Added the following additional features and modifications to the Game Plan to bring back some beloved functionalities and fix some issues:
– Additional features such as “Formation Change”, “Individual Instructions”, “Auto Select”, “Sub-tactic”, “Data Management”, etc.
– Improved processing load for better responsiveness
Previously introduced as “Creative Team” will be added to the game in the coming update as “Dream Team”. In this mode, you will be able to choose your favorite players and managers when signing them. You can then develop your players to fit your personal playstyle, which means you have almost infinite freedom to shape the team to your liking.
