The gameplay in eFootbal PES 2021 Season Update has not changed compared to the 2020 edition. So we get a highly realistic football simulator, with a refined system of passes, maneuvers, etc. The novelties mainly consist of updated player data and team rosters, with some of these changes introduced in post-launch updates.
Let's start with the fact that the topic of updating, instead of releasing a "completely new" part of the sports game series every year, returns in the comments of users of various websites like a boomerang. In eFootbal PES 2021, however, let's not count on updates such as this one to become a standard someday. Konami simply gave itself more time to develop Pro Evolution Soccer 2022, created on a new engine for next-gen consoles, i.e. Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. The game is to be available for sale in autumn next year. On the one hand, it's good ... On the other hand, because no one tried to confuse the players - the Asians made it clear: eFootbal PES 2021 is the same as PES 2020, only with updated lineups and the appearance of leotards.
eFootbal PES 2021 has always had a problem, be it with licenses or with an outdated database. I am writing this review on September 24, 2020 with the latest eFootbal PES 2021 Season Update installed and what do you find? Well, Thiago is still playing in Bayern, while he is already defending the colors of The Reds, i.e. Liverpool, while Juventus, led by Andrea Pirlo, lacks Alvaro Morata on the attack. In AC Milan, which in the new Pro Evo is unlicensed and appears under the name Milano RN, it is in vain to look for new signings, as well as probably in many other teams.
eFootbal PES 2021 So there is nothing else to do but wait for the update and, in a way, justify the creators a bit, because this year's transfer window has been moved much as well as league games and more. All, of course, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, although the stands, of course only the virtual ones, are filled to the brim with fans. eFootball PES 2021 Oh, and if you want, you can set the option to make five substitutions per match. Although I suspect that such a feature is not a novelty introduced in eFootball PES 2021 Season Update.
On the one hand, this is quite an OK road, because Konami in the field of football simulation is light years ahead of the competition with Electronic Arts, but I still hope that there will be some changes in the modes that will diversify the fun, making - in the fashion of the FIFA series - there will be more "fun" outside of playing more matches.
On the other hand, all the news in eFootball PES 2021 could be introduced with a simple update, and on PC some people can safely handle the appropriate modem. After all, the modding community around PES is very developed.

As the full title suggests and what I also emphasized at the beginning of the text, eFootball PES 2021 is just last year's Pro Evo, but with a new cover. Both in terms of gameplay and content, we will find here exactly the same as last year. The Master League has been packaged like the Polish Ekstraklasa by Canal +, where in the case of partner clubs (e.g. Bayern, Man. Utd., Barcelona or Juventus) we follow cutscenes from real facilities belonging to these giants, and Josep Guardiola joined the group of trainers, Frank Lampard and Ryan Giggs. This is probably the only place where, as crazy Pep, you can teach the Italian champion how to play football in 2020. Other modes for loners are traditionally league competition, national tournaments, cup competitions, friendly match, Become a Legend, Random Selection Match (only here Messi has a chance to get away from Barca for a while and play for another club) and training. In turn, Euro 2020, added a year ago in the form of a free update, has been integrated with the main game.
