KONAMI Releases Playable PES 2016 Demo

Konami Digital Entertainment has released a playable demo of PES 2016, which should be available via all digital services. PES 2016 stormed this year’s gamescom event where visitors to Europe’s largest consumer gaming event queued to get hands-on time with the acclaimed title and where a respected jury awarded the new game with its coveted ‘Best Sports Game’ award for the second year running.

With the series’ reputation at an all-time high, the PES series’ 20th anniversary is now available via the free demo which invites users to pick one of eight club and national teams and experience the many gameplay elements that it has to offer.

The playable demo offers single matches of between 6-10-minute duration, and a team roster that includes European giants Juventus, AS Roma, Bayern Munich, the South American pairing of Corinthians and Palmeiras plus the Brazilian and French national sides. Each team has been selected to show the individuality of playing styles and prowess of each team, illustrating the Team and Player ID systems that elevate PES 2016 to new levels of realism.

The demo also shows the new physicality elements that allow aerial jostling and a wider variety of tackles, through to greater one-on-one control and vastly improved goal keepers. The greatly improved animation elements and level of detail will also delight, with the new game featuring 3x the animations of last year’s PES 2015, and aesthetic elements such as grass flying as the ball is kicked.

The full PES 2016 season begins on September 18th – with global superstars Neymar Jr and Alvaro Morata gracing the cover - but the demo offers a chance to experience the very best in football simulation. Those suitably impressed by what they play can also gain an advantage in the full game’s myClub mode by pre-ordering and receiving the following incentives:
