Terrified fans have slammed eFootball after the release of new game faces for Liverpool players, saying they show why the PES rebrand is free.
The new game was released at the end of September as Konami rebranded their beloved Pro Evolution Soccer series of games with a free-to-play edition.
However, players have reported a series of issues with the new game following its disastrous launch and IGN report that a planned patch to fix the issues has been delayed until early November.
Following the release of new game faces for Liverpool players on Wednesday, the game has been criticised again by fans.
Horrifying images of Andy Robertson and Roberto Firmino in the game have been slammed by fans, along with new images of Raheem Sterling.
These come after fans had pointed out the poor attempts to recreate the likenesses of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane.
Fans compared Firmino's appearance to Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, while others joked that Robertson looked like an extra from Michael Jackson's famous thriller music video.
The game faces were ridiculed on social media after their release, with fans claiming that they show why the rebranded game costs nothing.

Meanwhile, another fan joked: “This game is free, I don’t even own it and I still feel ripped off.”
