The other major soccer franchise in video gaming, Pro Evolution Soccer, has released a Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 co-op gameplay demo, showing off a five-minute debut of the game’s cooperative gameplay. The gameplay, which was played at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second, is all on the Playstation 4 Pro console.
Pro Evolution Soccer is FIFA’s most direct competitor, though it’s noticeably less successful than FIFA (likely due to FIFA’s better marketing, graphics, and gameplay). However, it does have something of a rivalry with the FIFA franchise, and seems to be following in its footsteps.
Though the Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 co-op gameplay is knew for the Pro Evolution Soccer series, if you’ve been following FIFA news on this site you’ll have likely seen that cooperative gameplay is already going to be a thing in FIFA 18 when it comes out in September.
The gameplay in question is a game between the football clubs Borussia Dortmund and Atlético de Madrid. The gameplay not only shows off various things like two human players going up against the AI, but also includes things like a coop goal celebration, and even compares the performance of the two human players against each other.
One particularly interesting thing is that the Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 co-op gameplay takes place in the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid. That stadium actually hasn’t even been finished in the real world, yet Konami has been able to put it together ahead of them.
While of course it’s easier to put a stadium together digitally than it is to put it together in real-life, it’s still interesting that we’re able to see the revamped stadium before a lot of other people, unless those people are soccer fans that will be buying the game.
