Featured on this year’s cover is FC Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho and ona special edition version will be David Beckham.
PES 2019 will offer lifelike player movement making PES 2019’s famed superior gameplay even greater as Beckham, Coutinho and more have their unique playing styles brought to life. The game takes player individuality to the next level by introducing a variety of new skill traits that give the player a chance to create magic moments on the pitch.
Finding space in tough-to-break down opponents will take a twist as well with visible fatigue, which will impact performance and behaviour. New shooting mechanics will take into account improved ball physics, player and ball position, and player skills and shot styles. Hitting the back of the net in PES 2019 will be more satisfying than ever before with new net physics and celebrations added, teamed with new crowd animations.
All of which will be presented in 4K HDR across all platforms. Football will be shown for the beautiful game it truly is. Other visual improvements include real time global illumination lighting and shadows, with better crowd detail, real grass textures and the return of the incredibly popular snow weather effect.
myClub will see its biggest revamp to date, as the brand new player card design system leads a series of revolutionary changes to the way players build their squads. myClub players can also look forward to finding High Performance Players, including Legend Players and Players of the Week with temporarily boosted stats based on real world performances.
PES will also continue its partnership with one of the world’s biggest pre-season football tournaments, International Champions Cup (ICC). Elements of the ICC will be implemented into Master League, which will also include a new negotiation system, living menus and realistic transfers, elevating the mode to new heights. Unfortunately it lost its right to the UEFA Champions League though.
PES 2019 will be available on Xbox One on 30th August.
