Central to the new download are 16 new kits and an iconic classic strip from the 2004-2005 season, when they dominated European club football. Liverpool F.C.’s revamped Anfield stadium is also perfectly recreated for use in the game, with PES 2017 the only game to feature the ground’s new main stand. It will be joined by perfect recreations of Borussia Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park and the Allianz Parque – home to Brazilian giants, Palmeiras. Both Anfield and the Signal Iduna Park will also feature bespoke crowd anthems, with ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and ‘Heja BVB’ raising the rooftops as the team’s walk out and as matches progress.

One hundred player likenesses will also undergo improvements, with the new update adding updated visual representations of the likes of Marco Reus, Neymar Jr, Adrian Ramos, Sadio Mane and Lionel Messi, amongst others. The thumbnail images that are used within all tactical screens have also been updated to reflect changes in appearance and the new likeness elements.

Other additions will include minor bug fixes, the addition of 11 new boot styles and improved UEFA Champions League presentation elements. The previously announced 4K mode for PlayStation®Pro systems will now appear in the next free update, due for release in December.
