Publisher Konami has announced the arrival of Data Pack 4 for Pro Evolution Soccer 2014. You’ll be able to download it now from its specific option menu.
In the latest data pack, all transfers from the January 2014 window will update players’ positions to where they are now. You may find some of your favorite footballers have moved on to greener pastures, but at least you’re still topical.
In addition, the download file has within it lots of new gear for clubs and gameplay modes. For instance, there are a ton of classic kits included.
There are replica kits for teams such as the AC Milan heyday of 1899, Roma anno 1982/83, the Benfica power team of 1961/62 and the more recent Manchester United 1998/99 squad. Strips for the current teams are updated where necessary as well and that for both national squads as local clubs.
Similarly, the data pack pays attention to the South American counterpart of the game with classic kits. Colo-Colo from 1992, Sao Paulo in 1993, Boca Juniors of 1997 and Universidad De Chile in 1996 are more recent additions, joined by Santos FC in 1968 and Racing Club Avellaneda from 1967.
In total, 13 kits will join the roster and 43 others will receive an update.
Boots and footballs once more follow the update pack, with all the leading brands participating, such as Adidas, Nike and Puma. Balls from the UEFA knock-out stages and Argentine leagues will be selectable now as well.
There may be nothing refined when it comes to gameplay in this particular data pack, but at least Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 stays on point with updates. Its competitor FIFA has several iterations where the updates serve as “Legacy Edition” releases, for their games on Nintendo 3DS or PS2, for instance.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 only has the data pack up for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 right now, but the PC download should be available shortly.
