- Fundamental Gameplay Changes - Key additions to the
- Real Touch - In football, what dictates and separate the
best from the rest is 1st touch control. In PES 2017 the 1st touch in
calculated by player attributes as well as the further inclusion of
real ball physics directly controlled by the input ball touch. See how
different players control the ball in unique and different ways based
on where and how you control them, dictating the flow of the game based
on how they react to the unpredictable movement of the ball. In
addition, there is more control in how you receive the pass, and
depending on the pass the player can visually execute the exact play
intended, from receiving a pass to sending the ball out again.
- Precise Pass - Combining Real Touch and real ball physics,
passing is an art form in PES 2017. Many factors determine the speed
and accuracy of the ball. The base is the player rates and skills, and
adding to these are the players direction and angle that links to the
natural, satisfying animation to follow. The pass that is made on the
best situation and timing will generate a perfect trajectory, creating
a great satisfaction when a killer pass is made.
- Authentic Visuals - For PES 2017 the visuals have seen a
major upgrade, offering Authentic Visuals thanks to the further
incorporation of Fox Engine. The lighting sources have increased by
double this year as well as the crowd models and pitch textures
overhauled, making the visuals more realistic than ever. Details such
as being able to see the players breathing in winter, the net to splash
some rain off when the ball hits in rainy weather, and the debris of
the pitch flying when they are kicked up. Shadows in the day matches
are more recognizable, and some of the spray line for the free kick
lines are seen throughout as subtle enhancements. Nothing has been left
untouched, from player models, lighting, crowds, pitch and stadiums
totally revamped. Never has a game looked so real
- Natural Player Movement - New features such as Real Touch
and Precise Pass see huge benefit as hundreds of new animations have
been added, giving a vast array of movements when trapping and passing
the ball. The player interactions (collisions) are also further
developed with player individuality clearly represented in detailed
movement (e.g. Giroud strong in physicality, Özil strong in balance).
The representation for balance in the body when being physically
challenged is strongly supported through the 2 new parameters.
- Goal Keeping - Keepers see a great jump in quality through
added motions and animations, creating the most agile keepers in PES
history. They instantly react to shots including a fast follow up,
springing into action after landing. Further improvement have made to a
variety of situations the Goalkeeper will face, including 3 significant
areas. These include deflection when the shot is near their feet,
instant reaction to shot to the side they are not expecting, and
fingertip saves to defend shots right before it goes past the goal
line. With the new intelligent keepers scoring a goal will not be a
simple task. The ball physics when the keeper saves is close to real
life, which can be seen in how a shot is deflected based on which part
of the keeper it hits. Attacking moments will be more dramatic than
ever, bringing the best feeling of achievement when that goal is scored.
- Total Team Control - The series is known for incredible
depth when controlling how your team plays, and with Total Team Control
in PES 2017 users have new on the fly options during a match. Users can
instantly change the attacking and defending mentality of the team,
which can be tweaked and carefully controlled with simple controls,
being able to immediately react to the unpredictability of the sport.
Defend a lead or drive the team forward to score a goal, the choice is
- Corner Kick Control - Control the defensive and offensive
strategies on a set pieces to add a new dimension to corner kicks. By
tapping the d-pad on a corner, a variety of options come up allowing
the user to tailor each moment to their playing style. Defensive
options include choosing to marking zonal or Man to Man. Offensive
options are also included, such as flooding the 6 yard box, or 'Train'
which sees players attack the ball in a straight line.
- Advanced Instructions - Strategies that are quite
individually defined such as Tiki-taka and tight marking which is
strongly based on team ideology can be now set in "Advanced
Instructions", which adds a huge variety in how you plan to win. The
renowned strategy to go in for heavy pressing such as Gegenpressing ,
the counter target strategy to not go all-in on pressing and heavy
man-mark that some teams put into practice are all in this strategy
setting. This vividly adds that team identity and makes winning more
rewarding, but most of all making the match more fun through tactical
- Adaptive AI - For the first time in a football game, the AI
will learn how you play, listen to your strategy plans, follow your
Advanced Instructions, and change their tactics accordingly! Pass to a
star player often? The opposition will double up on him and mark
heavily. Like to constantly play down the wings? Players will cover
their fullbacks to make you think twice! The AI will also adapt its
attacking tactics, so if you are intercepting the opposition's long
passes they will change to a short passing game! Player and team
behavior has always been a staple of the PES series, and for PES 2017
Adaptive AI will change sports games forever.
