KONAMI has just announced that Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 will be out next August 28 in the US and on August 30 in Europe on Xbox, PS4 and on PC via Steam along with gameplay details and a first look trailer.
PES 2019 will be available in two physical editions, with new global ambassador Philippe Coutinho on the front cover of the standard edition and David Beckham on a special edition which gives fans the opportunity to unlock myClub bonuses. Also available at launch will be a digital-only Legend edition.
PES 2019 will feature the Enlighten Engine for better visual effects and 4K HDR across all platforms. As declared by KONAMI, “Real time ‘Global Illumination’ lighting and shadows has led to improved in-game graphics with better crowd detail, real grass textures and the return of the incredibly popular snow weather effect.”
The myClub mode is probably what seen the biggest revamp in the series, as the brand new player card design system leads a series of interesting 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.
Other improvements will include Visible Fatigue and a new shooting mechanics will take into account improved ball physics, player and ball position, and player skills and shot styles. Unfortunately, the game recently lost its Champions League license.
If you are new to the series, we reviewed PES 2018 last fall.
