Konami just released this statement about PES 2015:
Konami announced that it will be releasing its free ‘Data Pack 2’ download for Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 users. The new update, available December 16, will include: four teams, 73 player faces, four stadiums and a number of key advances to the popular myClub mode.
As part of KONAMI’s commitment to continually enhance PES 2015, which has won a number of awards including ‘Best Sports Game’ at both Gamescom and Paris Games Week, the free download will be implemented on December 16. With PES 2015 exclusively featuring the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa Cup competitions, players will now also have access to official recreations of FC Basel 1893, Besiktas, FC Bate Borisov and NK Maribor – all featured in this year’s tournaments. All four teams will be fully licensed in the game, and will include respective team kits, rosters and iconography.
Acclaimed for its incredible player likenesses, the PES 2015 update adds 73 new player faces from all over the globe, including renowned stars such as José Callejón, Aaron Ramsey, Karim Bellarabi and Gerard Deulofeu. Up and coming stars such as England left-back Luke Shaw, Spanish star Iker Munian and Portugal’s Ruben Neves – all focal to the continuation of the PES 2015 Mantra: ‘The Pitch is Ours’ – will also be part of the update. All 73 updated players have been selected based on community requests worldwide, and will be joined by even more additions throughout the year.
Tied into these likenesses is the addition of a new element within myClub, a mode that allows users to build a team of world-class players using points earned for achieving milestones or through good play. These points can be spent on building a new team, and players can also be added via micro-transactions. The 73 new players, as well as uPComing stars, will also be featured in uPComing myClub events.
Further bolstered with Event Competitions, myClub provides users new ways to accumulate points for their team. A new panel will be added to the main menu screen, and Event Competitions will be open for limited times only. Players will be matched online, in one-off games or tournaments. A scalable selection of rewards will be gifted to the winning players. A tournament against CPU-controlled users is also available, with players matched against teams of similar ability and earning various rewards for successfully winning the tournament.
The update also includes the faithful recreation of four new stadiums including Estadio do Morumbi, Saitama Stadium, El Comumental and Estadio Mineirao, with the latter an exclusive to PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and XBOX One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. Other additions to the main game include 10 new boots showcasing the latest styles from adidas, Umbro and Mizuno, as well as the adidas Pro Ligue 1 and Conext 15 official match balls.
Additional kit updates and enhancements include those of River Plate, Estudiantes De La Plata and the German national side. All player moves have also been finalized, with additional January moves and loans to be constantly updated via PES 2015’s weekly stat updates, which reflect the form of players and sides within the game on an ongoing basis. Smaller improvements and enhancements have also been made to the Squad lists within myClub.
‘The pitch is ours’ is the ethos dominating PES 2015, aiming to recreate the drama and tension associated with a Vital match. PES 2015 marks a concerted return to core PES values of total control, extremely responsive controls and unrestricted gameplay, where the user has complete control over how they play. Every pass, shot or run is finely balanced to give maximum player satisfaction within PES 2015’s on-field action.
PES 2015 is now available on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, the XBOX One, and the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft as well as Windows PC worldwide, with a free playable demo available for download.
