Pro Evolution Soccer 16, Konami’s latest installment in the popular soccer franchise, has received new gameplay footage.
This is our first look at gameplay and from the looks of it, FIFA will need to pull something out of its hat to beat PES this year.
The first thing you notice is the amazing fluidity and penetrative passing mechanics. Also, there is a new “jostle” option that lets you put physical pressure on the opponent to get the ball back.
Most interestingly, ball and the player now don’t feel like the same entity.
As previously revealed, PES 16 will feature Barcelona star Neymar Jr. on the cover. The game is being developed on the powerful Fox Engine and it comes with a reworked Master League.
Master League will now focus more on single-player with improved and slicker gameplay. Other features include dynamic weather, improved visuals, more control over goal celebrations, AI improvements and more.
Pro Evolution Soccer 16 will release on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on September 15 in North America and September 17 in Europe.
