Pro Evolution Soccer or PES, one of the greatest football video games ever, is back with PES 2019. Konami’s football saga wants to re-attack the market, dominated by its biggest rival FIFA. Rumours are already circulating about the official release date, but all will be confirmed in the official revelation of the game.
Pro Evolution Soccer was present during the El Clásico of Spain that opposed the rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona on May 6th. Being confirmed later in the official Twitter of the game of Konami.
The tweet confirms the release date for PES 2019. May 9 is the date chosen by Konami to show us more about the game. However, there are rumours and speculations about possible additions that may be confirmed in this revelation event.
An information leak at the Hong Kong PlayStation Store revealed that the possible launch date for the game would be August 30. However, omitted. The fact that the information was deleted confirms that it is something that Konami and Sony do not want to be public, at least for now.
PES 2019 needs something fantastic to compensate for the loss of the “Champions League”
Following the loss of the Champions League license, expectations are high for what Konami will do to circumvent the loss of one of the franchise’s strongest content. Rumours suggest that there will be a game mode called “Legend Edition”. But there is no information about the details.
For the rest, we can only speculate on possible additions to the game:
- Increase in the number of licenses in the game (competitions, teams, stadiums and players).
- Changes in MyClub game mode. Increasing the useful life of the game mode through special cards released periodically (similar to what is already done in FIFA).
- Changes in Master League game mode. More realism through new licenses and pre-season inclusion and an improved transfer system.
- Graphic enhancements, photorealism and new animations to 4K HDR.
The PES 2019 could have an advantage over FIFA 19 if the launch is confirmed for August 30. Now it all depends on the product that Konami has to present and whether it will be able to take advantage of the early release date.
This is all we know of PES 2019, plus news and confirmations on May 9, at the game’s revelation event. We may have access to more information on new licenses and demos of E3 gameplay this year.
It is expected, as usual, that PES 2019 be released for PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
