KONAMI goes into the new season, with PES 2015 centered on the mantra of ‘the pitch is ours’.

The free demo on PlayStation Network will also have a direct link to pre-order the title, which includes items to be used in the new myClub game mode.
PES 2015 will be released globally for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PlayStation®3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on November 13th, so the demo is the perfect opportunity for a pre-season session with the new control and content elements. The new game heralds the first appearance of the seminal series on the new wave of console hardware.”
Improvements to the game include Behavioral Pattern, Bring The Noise, Poetry in Motion and Let there be light, details are as follows:
Behavioral Patterns: PES 2015 now boasts an array of players that both look and play like their real-life counterparts. Konami claims to have faithfully recreated over 1000 players this year, with bespoke animations and playing styles across its extensive player roster. Teams automatically adopt their real-life game plan, whether it is counter-attacking, out wide, or defensively minded. They run like they should, play the way they do in real life, and react emotionally as they would to fouls, goals or referee decisions – with their frame of mind actually affecting how they play.
Poetry in Motion: The individuality of the players is further enhanced with seamless animations. No sacrifice to animation has been made in the pursuit of fast response, yet the movements flow effortlessly calculated in real-time and dependent on the player’s position in relation to the ball and its speed. Player models themselves are also carefully enhanced.
Bring the Noise: PES 2015 mirrors the atmosphere of a top-flight match. The crowd animations have been enhanced, and the ebb and flow of a match is met with context-sensitive crowd effects and movements.
Also, World Cup hero for Germany, Mario Gotze is going to grace the cover of the game. Well, I don’t know about you but I will have to say that he is looking great at the cover. Don’t you think?
