Luckily for all PES players, KONAMI secured the official UEFA EURO 2016 license last year, and will be delivering it to their loyal fan base in the form of free DLC. One of the best football games ever created just got a whole lot better.
THE FRENCH CONNECTION
Many a football fan prefers the EUFA EURO competition to the World Cup, since all the teams competing are top tier teams (goodbye 6-0 drubbings) and the tournament is over a shorter period since fewer teams compete. This creates a sense of drama from game one right up until the dramatic conclusion in the final. This year’s competition takes place in France and will see 24 teams gather for initial group matches before progressing to knock- out stages. Qualified teams from all over Europe will compete for the coveted Henri Delaunay Cup, with the first game played on June 10th, and the final taking place in France’s stunning Stade de France a month later on July 10th. During this time, 50 matches will be played, showcasing Europe’s greatest football talent.
THE EUROPE ELITE
KONAMI’s official UEFA EURO 2016 title will be added to PES 2016’s main menu screen and instantly visible on loading the game. The disc-based release will contain both the full PES 2016 game and UEFA EURO 2016 content. The UEFA EURO 2016 mode will feature full iconography and presentation elements from this year’s tournament, and also includes the Stade de France stadium, which hosts the final in July. From the 24 qualified teams that feature real players with hundreds of authentic player faces, 15 fully licensed teams will be included with the latest strips for England, Wales, Germany, Spain, Portugal,
Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Northern Ireland and the hosts – France, all perfectly recreated. All squads will also be in line with those of the qualifying nations with the various playing styles perfectly replicated via the game’s innovative Player ID and Team ID systems, which mimic the exact playing styles of both individual players and the team as a whole.
Considering the stellar job KONAMI have done with bringing the magic of the Champions League to our consoles, the official UEFA EURO 2016 is an absolute treat. Experience the elation and disappointment of one of the greatest football tournaments in the world right on your couch and lead your favourite team to glory.
