Centered on the concept that PES 2018 is “Where Legends are Made,” the new game boasts more new features and enhancements than any PES title in the last 10 years. The series’ award-winning gameplay offers total control over the on-field action, as players are guided to behave, move and react just like their real-life counterparts. New additions to the control systems add more fluidity to the game, while a new user interface makes accessing the many facets of the game a simpler process. KONAMI has also confirmed that the PC edition of the game will enjoy total parity with that of the leading console iterations.

PES 2018 also introduces new co-operative 2-Vs-2 and 3-Vs-3 modes with support for local guests. The much-requested ‘Random Selection’ match returns with all new content, while the Master League implements pre-season tournaments, a new transfer system and pre-match interviews and an insight to the changing rooms. Similarly, ahead of next season’s eSport tournament, the official PES LEAGUE has been integrated into the main game.

PES 2018 will be available on September 12th in the Americas and September 14th globally on PlayStation®4, Xbox One™, PlayStation®3 and Xbox360™. The game will also be available via PC Steam in a version that has undergone substantial improvements in terms of aesthetics and content, ensuring the game enjoys parity with the current gen formats.
