It’s been a rough day for Pro Evolution Soccer – the 2019 edition was pulled at the last minute from this month’s PS Plus lineup, finding itself replaced with Detroit: Become Human instead. But things are starting to look up for Konami’s “sharpshooter” as Manchester United has just been confirmed for Pro Evolution Soccer 2020.
That includes a fully licenced representation of the iconic team – players and stadium alike. But is it enough to bring the fight back to FIFA?
It’s fair to say that Pro Evolution Soccer has always struggled due to its lack of official teams. And previous attempts at attracting star talent has had little impact on overall sales. But United are a different beast; they truly are a global brand that could prove pivotal for the series’ success. Especially when people find out what’s included.
David Beckham, for a start, along with fan favourite, Park Ji-Sung. And Scott McTominay as official ambassador. The entire team will enjoy a 3D body scan, whilst Old Trafford will also be faithfully recreated in pixel form.
A Matchday mode caps things off, with weekly events for fans to compete in against some of the team’s greatest rivals. Although, surely most of the will remain unlicensed tribute acts?
Don’t forget a demo will be available July 30th, with Arsenal and Barcelona featuring as playable teams; United, however, are yet to be confirmed.
