It’s that time of year again when the football games start to flex their shin pads. Today it’s PES’ go. And after the last year or two that Konami’s baby has had, Pro Evolution Soccer 19 has a bit to prove to say the least.
With that in mind, the developer has announced that there will be a demo prior to its release, showing off the remnants of its licensed sprites.
Online quick matches and offline exhibition matches will be included, contested by a choice of ten teams at one of two stadiums – namely Liverpool, Barcelona and Inter Milan at FC Barcelona’s Camp Nou or FC Schalke 04’s Veltins Arena; the national teams of Argentina and France are also available for selection, with the latter possibly set to become the trial’s most popular choice. For what reason we do not know…
Konami are also determined to show off as many features of Pro Evolution Soccer 19 as possible as they compete with FIFA for this year’s cup. Player fatigue and individual personality will be evident, as will improved playing physics. Though that last one is possibly the most exciting owing to the prowess the franchise already possesses when it comes to realistic gameplay.
Another feature that is enjoying an overhaul is the online fantasy football mode. This year will see MyClub enjoy a selection of online events and the removal of transfer/signing restrictions.
To finish off, Konami promises more licensed leagues and teams than previous years, a big statement considering they lost the Champions League to their rivals not too long ago. Anyway, they’re not letting that get them down and are happy to announce AS Monaco as another licensed team, who will see their kit and stadium recreated on this digital stage.
Pro Evolution Soccer 19 gets kitted up on August 28th, a full month before FIFA 19. But when do you plan on leaving the bench? Let us in on your tactics in the D below.
