What is PES 2019?

It’s the next entry in the popular football simulation series which has grown into Konami’s flagship title in recent years. We expect it will deliver the same high-caliber quality of visuals, gameplay, and modes the franchise is renown for with a few new additions to boot.

PES 2019 Gameplay – Features detailed

Konami’s official press release for PES 2019 has revealed plenty of new information about the game.

“PES 2019 will fulfil KONAMI’s ongoing commitment to increase the number of licenses confirming; more fully licensed leagues and stadiums, more club licensed partnerships, and a host of new Legends that will be announced in the weeks to come,” the press release reads. Following the disappointing news of PES losing the UEFA licence, hopefully this is a silver lining, providing the developer delivers on this promise.

“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,” the press release continues, “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.”

The press release confirms the game will also be playable with 4K HDR support across all supporting platforms.
