Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. added: “Today’s announcement of
eFootball PES 2020 and our new positioning recognises this
company’s commitment to the emerging sport of eFootball and progress
we’ve made in that direction with previous PES titles. With KONAMI’s
continued investment in the PES LEAGUE and eFootball.Pro tournaments,
plus our dedication to continually raising the bar for football
simulation games, we’ve never been more excited for the future of the
eFootball PES series.”
Enlisting the expertise of legendary midfielder Andrés Iniesta has
shaped the latest instalment with a renewed focus on immersion and
authenticity, translating his innate ability to read the space around
him and slip through the tiniest cracks of an otherwise impregnable
defensive line into a new dynamic dribbling technique; the Finesse
Renowned as one of football’s most entertaining players, Ronaldinho’s
unique style of football is also coming to PES 2020, featuring
animation sets that allow players to move like the man himself, using
unparalleled technical flair and fluid movement to beat defenders,
together with showboat first-touch techniques such as chest and back
Master League Remastered
Huge changes are coming to fan-favourite mode Master League, headlined
by a powerful new interactive dialogue system that puts the reins
firmly in players hands when it comes to controlling story progression.
This enables players to choose responses that suit their personality to
drive progression and create their own personal Master League story.
The transfer market in PES 2020 will also feature a brand-new algorithm
ensuring that transfers, transfer fees, salaries and other elements are
in close alignment with reality.
Further additions include:
Brand-New Mode: Matchday
- Create and customise sponsor logos that will be displayed on the
media backdrop during interviews and on the Master League main menu
- Customise manager models with a greater level of freedom thanks
to high-performance 3D scanning technology to capture images of
individuals of varying body shapes and sizes
- Or play through Master League using one of several legendary
managers as your avatar, including Zico, Cruyff and Maradona
In a brand-new mode for PES 2020, Matchday distils the essence of
football culture into a competitive format that lifts players out of
the spectator stands and puts them onto the pitch. Align yourself with
one of two different sides at the start of each weekly event, where
every perfectly placed pass and show-stopping goal unleashed
contributes points towards victory.
Stand alongside PES newcomers and seasoned veterans alike as you work
together to build an advantage for your side ahead of the Grand Final.
As each weekly event enters its final phase, the results from all Group
Matches played are analysed to find the best performing user from each
side. These users are selected as Representatives, earning the right to
compete in the Grand Final on behalf of their chosen side – fully
viewable via a livestream feed in Matchday mode.
Additional Game Features:
Beyond Master League and Matchday, numerous significant changes have
been made to PES 2020 as a direct result of fan feedback. This includes
upgraded trapping mechanics and new techniques; context-sensitive kick
accuracy; more realistic defence and the addition of the intentional
foul; an adaptive player interaction system that recreates player
personalities on the pitch; and much more.
The beautiful game has never looked better this year, with PES 2020
introducing an enhanced lighting engine, improved player models,
realistic cutscenes and replay footage, plus a completely new preset
camera angle that offers a compelling broadcast feel.
eFootball PES 2020 will be available on PlayStation®4, Xbox One™,
and PC STEAM on September 10th (Americas/Europe) / September 12th
(Asia). Available in two editions, the incomparable Lionel Messi will
feature as the cover star for the standard edition, and with Ronaldinho
