As gaming fans are gearing up for the big announcement of FIFA 20, Japanese game developer Konami has reported on the latest development of FIFA’s biggest rival, Pro Evolution Soccer. For the last several years, PES has proved itself as the only competitor of FIFA in the football video game market. The new version of the game, PES 2020 promises to take up an even bigger share, bringing out brand new modes with iconic players.
eFootball PES 2020: A sudden change in name
Konami has decided to change the name of PES into eFootball PES 2020, although the previous has long correlated with a football video game. Such amendment reflects the intention of the developer to increase emphasis on eSports industry.
With the adjustment, the game is expected to “revolutionize eFootball in a new decade of industry-leading football simulation, and offer the sport to a global audience.”
New features: Master League, Matchday, and more
PES 2020 avouches a set of revolutionary changes in the all-time favorite mode of the game Master League. For years, Master League appears as the exclusive career mode maintained by PES, which allows players to constitute and organize their own teams in order to become the strongest squad at the end of the league.
In this new version, PES provides users with a more powerful interactive dialogue, giving them full controls over story progression. As said, players have the ability to pick out responses matching with their personality which enables them to drive progression and create a unique Master League story.
There is also a new algorithm applied to the transfer market. Clearly, Konami is making an effort to improve users’ experiences by making elements like salaries or fees “in close alignment with reality.”
Besides these updates, PES 2020 will introduce a brand-new mode called Match day. The mode detaches players from spectator stands and puts them onto the pitch. As with Matchday, players choose to be part of one among two different sides, unleashing placed pass and show-stopping goal to collect more points.
That’s absolutely an engrossing experience as players must work together to gradually build the advantage for their own side ahead of the Grand Final.
PES 2020: Pricing and Release date
According to the official website of Konami, eFootball PES 2020 will be available on Sept 10 this year for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
There will be two separate editions including the Legend and the Standard. The prices for Legend edition are Rs 4,799; Rs 5,464; and Rs 4,060 for PS4, PCs, and Xbox One, respectively.
