PES 2019 is the latest installment in the soccer series with more licensed content than ever before; more fully licensed leagues and stadiums, more club licensed partnerships, and a host of new Legends.

FC Barcelona star and global ambassador Philippe Coutinho will be featured on this year’s cover while a special David Beckham edition featuring a present-day version of one of England’s all-time greatest footballers.

Fans will be able to experience lifelike player movement making PES 2019’s famed superior gameplay even greater as Beckham, Coutinho and more have their unique playing styles brought to life. The game takes player individuality to the next level by introducing a variety of new skill traits that give the player a chance to create Magic Moments on the pitch, which is now the forefront of PES 2019’s superior gameplay.

Finding space in tough-to-break down opponents will take a twist as well with Visible Fatigue, which will impact performance and behaviour. New shooting mechanics will take into account improved ball physics, player and ball position, and player skills and shot styles. Hitting the back of the net in PES 2019 will be more satisfying than ever before with new net physics and celebrations added, teamed with new crowd animations.

The beautiful game has never looked better thanks to ‘Enlighten’ software for true-to-life visual effects and 4K HDR across all platforms. 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.

 


Part of Konami’s ongoing commitment to increase the number of licenses within the PES series, PES 2019 will feature seven new fully licensed leagues, with two more to be announced at a later date.

The confirmed seven new authentic leagues available in PES 2019 include: Superliga Argentina, Danish Superliga, Portugal’s Liga NOS, Belgium Pro League, Swiss Super League, Scotland’s Ladbrokes Premiership, and exclusive to PES 2019, the Russian Premier Liga. All teams within the leagues will be fully licensed in PES 2019 as well.

Konami is especially thrilled to have signed the rights for the Russian Premier Liga exclusively, making PES 2019 the only football game on the market where fans can have access to the entire league featuring top clubs such as CSKA Moscow, Zenit St Petersburg and Spartak Moscow.

With the latest PES instalment being made available on 4K HDR across all platforms as well as the use of ‘Enlighten’ software for true-to-life visual effects and real time ‘Global Illumination’lighting and shadows, PES 2019 will offer fans improved in-game graphics. This means better crowd detail, real grass textures and the return of the incredibly popular snow weather effect making those matches in Moscow even more realistic!

“Announcing seven new, official football leagues for PES 2019 is a clear sign that we are committed to giving fans more of what they want – more licensed content,” commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director for Brand and Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “We are more confident than ever in the direction the franchise is headed and this is just one of many steps we are taking to elevate PES to new heights. We continue to believe in the Power of Football and PES 2019 will be our most powerful game yet featuring more fully licensed leagues and clubs than ever before.”

myClub will see its biggest revamp to date, as the brand new player card design system leads a series of revolutionary 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.

KONAMI is also excited to continue its partnership with one of the world’s biggest pre-season football tournaments, International Champions Cup (ICC).

PES 2019 players can also look forward to a new menu interface, dynamically updated to bring fans the latest news about PES from the game itself. The new modern look is built around motion bringing the menu screens to life, while giving fans exclusive offers, including discounts on other upcoming products.
