Konami is currently running an online test for a New Football Game of PES 2022 that is very likely to be driven by eFootball 2022.
PES 2022: New Football Game demo download
The demo can now be downloaded from the PlayStation Store for PS5 and PS4 and Microsoft Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. Players just need to search for “New Football Game Online Performance Test” on their respective stores and launch the game.
The aim is to conduct an open beta test before the game is officially released, which is described as follows:
The purpose of this beta test is to evaluate the quality of the online matchmaking and connection to the servers. Please note that gameplay mechanics, balancing, animations and graphics are all under development and will be improved before the official launch. With all that out of the way, we would like to invite you to participate in this open beta, and we would greatly appreciate it if you could share with us your thoughts and feedback on your experience.
Only a limited selection of teams is available for this test, which have a squad of 22 players and which have been selected according to the stakes and minutes played. The trial period will last till July 8, 2021.
The demo is free and you don’t need a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold to take part in online multiplayer games as part of this test. Cross-generation play is already available between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as on Xbox consoles, but not between PlayStation and Xbox.
Konami advises that the game is under development and therefore unexpected errors such as crashes may occur. Unplanned maintenance may be performed during the trial period.
As soon as the test is over, the demo will no longer be available, and no content will be transferred to the final game. Further information can be found on the official website.
