For years, the PES Productions Team has looked at how matches ebb and flow to develop a new approach to football. As a result, PES 2014 will use Kojima Production's renowned FOX Engine at its core. Six central improvements (M.A.S.S., TrueBall Tech, Heart, PES ID, Team Play and Core) combine to establish PES 2014 as a new benchmark in football simulations. They govern everything from the way the player receives and controls the ball, the physicality of play, and the 'feel' of match-day: the rush of euphoria or crushing lows that experiencing an important game can bring.
Konami has signed an agreement with the Argentinian Football Association (AFA) to bring 20 AFA Primera División Teams (and some of the corresponding home stadiums) into Pro Evolution Soccer 2014. KONAMI has also enlisted the talents of national football announcers and FOX Sports commentators, Mariano Closs and Fernando Niembro, to call the action in each game. Some of the premier teams that will be included are River Plate, Boca Juniors and Newell's Old Boys and Racing.
"The Pro Evolution Soccer series has always been all about creating authentic football experiences. And with great game development comes great partners." said Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "By working with the Argentinian Football Association, we will be able to give fans around the world the chance to play with some of the best and most competitive football teams."
The Pro Evolution Soccer series holds a wide range of soccer licenses from around the world, including Europe's premier club competition, the UEFA Champions League, and the AFC Champions League. Since its inception, the series has enjoyed acclaim worldwide, and the addition of highly-regarded AFA Primera División Teams will help extend its range to further resonate with football fans around the world. This new agreement with the AFA brings the following 20 Primera División Teams and many of the home stadiums to Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 at launch.
