World Challenge DLC coming soon to PES 2014
Play through a certain global soccer competition with a new mode
Konami Digital Entertainment has announced plans to release new DLC content for PES 2014, with an all-new World Challenge mode featuring a new International Cup.
The content is of course timed to celebrate the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil, but due to EA owning the rights to the competition in video games, it is not named.
The new content integrates an all-new International Cup competition into PES 2014. The mode charges the user with guiding their international team or player to glory in the International Cup competition. In Team mode, the user governs every aspect of play, from team selection, to choosing offensive and defensive tactics, while Player mode sees the player striving to earn selection and retain their place via their performances in a game.
The World Challenge mode runs the full gamut of a top-level competition, from qualifying rounds, through to the main tournament. The mode features separate qualification competitions for European, African, American and Asian sides, with a set number from each continent allocated spaces.
The DLC features new presentation and front-end elements, while AI updates see players responding to strong performances and raising their game, or suffering a crisis of confidence which can affect their playing levels. New cut scenes have also been added, presenting final squad selection once gamers qualify for the International Cup. World Challenge mode also includes the official Brazilian national team and player likeness.
World Challenge Mode DLC will be available to download on March 26 via Xbox LIVE, and April 1 via PlayStation Network, priced at $4.99.
PES 2014 was released last Fall on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
