'Pro Evolution Soccer 2018' (ALL) Announced, Dated - Screens & Trailer

PES 2018 announced for this September

That being the case, Konami are really hoping that you'd like to buy another one this year, and preferably theirs, as opposed to the inevitable Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 that PES 18 will be going up against.

"Where Legends Are Made" encapsulates the return of Pro Evolution Soccer, with new features, modes and an unparalleled gameplay experience. These include a revamped control system that adds more fluidity to the game, and a new, simpler user interface. This feature will allow players to "react to receiving a ball using permissible parts of the body, such as chest, head, and legs to bring a pass under control dependent on the height and pace of the incoming ball".

But perhaps the most interesting announcement is the "substantial enhancements" that will come part of the PC version of PES 2018 - past releases having come under hefty scrutiny from the community for their less-than-satisfactory visual and content-based quality. Players have been motion captured in equally realistic environments, allowing for a complete rework of the animation system, starting with core movement such as walking, turning and body posture.

Among the new features are "strategic dribbling", and set pieces "take the unrivalled gameplay to the next level".

A new mode dedicated to 2v2 and 3v3 co-op play, with support for local guests. The MyClub mode is still there along with all the other aspects of the game you have loved in all the older editions. KONAMI's agreements with partner teams will also see tattoos recreated on players as well.

Instead of going with the usual low profile presentation, Konami is going to make PES 2018 more family friendly with a cinematic presentation than younger kids will love. However, Konami has stated that the PC version will finally receive some additional love, and will be similar to current-gen consoles.
