The world of soccer video games sees two of its biggest contestants - Pro Evolution Soccer (PES for short) and FIFA fighting for official licenses every year, and this year is no different. The cost to gain those licenses is definitely not cheap, which also ramps up the price of those games. Hence, not every gamer has the chance to play with their favorite team in their favorite game.

And since FIFA 20 has lost the favor of Indian gamers down with its misportray of the Kashmir and Jammu, eFootball PES 2020 became the Indians' top choice. And in order to bring their most famous franchise to a wider public, Konami is very excited to announce eFootball PES 2020 LITE!

It's the free version of eFootball PES 2020 but still contains the most outstanding licensed features of the original game. Below is the trailer for this announcement, which you can see to check for the features in this version:

Key Features of eFootball PES 2020 LITE

eFootball PES 2020 officially came out this September and has achieved the award of 'E3 Best Sports Game', so you can expect that it will not stand behind FIFA 20 by one bit. In fact, Konami has successfully jacked off the license of team Juventus from EA, and so if you are a fan of the Seria A champion, you can only find them "officially" in eFootball PES 2020.

And following their recent tradition, Konami is releasing the eFootball PES 2020 LITE - the free version of eFootball PES 2020. But don't think it will be lackluster since its free, as this LITE version only rips off some contents from the original game, but keeps almost all of the most important features, including the licensed ones.

Basically, eFootball PES 2020 LITE still keeps the high-quality realistic gameplay of the full game, including latest updates from the full game, such as the legendary Barcelona's midfielder Iniesta's titular skills - Finesse Dribble. Hence, you can enjoy the completely similar in-match experience you get from the non-lite version, apart from ranges of omitted teams.

However, all of the licensed teams such as Juventus, Manchester United, FC Barcelona, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and many more from the Brazilian and Argentinian league will still appear in this game. It's not enough to cover every soccer fan, but it's enough for realistic soccer experiences in video games. And if you want more teams, you can find all of them in the Training mode.
