PES 2017 gets first details

PES 2017 will get its full premiere alongside the 2016 PES League World Finals in Milan.

On May 27th and 28th, the UEFA Champions League Finals in Milan will host the 2016 PES World Finals of the UEFA Champions League eSports event. It’s there we’ll see first details of the next installment in the legendary footy franchise.


We know Konami’s FOX Engine will be used again to power the game, and that the focus of PES 2017 is playing against another player, with the central feature being Real Touch. This reproduces multiple ways to receive and control a pass with complex ball physics and subtle control nuances.

There will also be a Precise Pass sytem which extends the Real Touch basis of using the ability of the player with the ball to determine accuracy of each pass.

This years’ tagline is ‘Control Reality’.

The game also boasts enhanced visuals, with added authenticity. This also includes natural player movements with new animation, and improved Goal Keeping.

There’s total team control where you can change attacking and  defending mentality of a team with simple controls, but also advanced instructions with new strategies, such as Tiki-taka and heavy man-mark.

Konami will reveal even more details at E3 on June 14th. The game is expected to release Autumn 2016
