PES 2015 in stores today
Annual football title enters the new console generation
Konami Digital Entertainment has today released its annual soccer title, Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 in North and South America.
PES 2015 boasts German international Mario Götze as its pack star in a move that reflects the focus on all-round performance in the game.
The license roster has been improved, introducing second-tier teams for the first time, with Spanish Liga Adelante represented in its entirety, as is the French Ligue 2. The team rosters have also been extended to English and Italian second-tier teams, albeit not in licensed form but with real players. These supplement the full Dutch Eredivisie, French Ligue 1, Spanish La Liga and Italian top-flight leagues, which are long-standing PES inclusions.
Some top European club sides are also licensed, and include pack star Mario Götze’s Bayern Munich; Portuguese giants FC Porto, Benfica and Sporting SP; and the likes of Anderlecht, Manchester United, Zenit St Petersburg, CSKA Moscow and Galatasaray. This compliments the existing exclusive licenses, headlined by UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Super Cup. The Copa Libertadores and Asian Champions League return, with new additions Copa Sudamericana and Recopa Sudamericana adding to the top club competitions only playable in PES 2015.
PES 2015 is available now for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One for $59.99, and for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for $39.99. The PC (digital download version) will be available from November 13 for $39.99, coinciding with the global Steam launch of the game.
