What are the new features for PES this year?
Konami have taken big steps to further improve the graphics of the game. PES 19 will ship at 4K HDR across all platforms and will have dynamic lighting and shadows both on the pitch and in the crowd.
The game promises to be more realistic than ever with the new ‘magic moments’ feature which adds 11 new skill traits which enhance player uniqueness including: edge turn, no look pass, control loop, dipping shot and rising shot.
Players will move and act differently depending where they and the ball are on the pitch and trickier players will be able to make feint, precise movements to get past defenders.
On top of that, teams may be easier to break down with the new ‘visual fatigue’ system. As the match wares on, players will become more tired which will affect both how they act and how they perform.
When does the PES 2019 full game release in the UK?
The full version of PES 2019 will launch 20 days after the demo, hitting shelves worldwide on Tuesday August 30. It will ship at 4K HDR across all platforms and will have dynamic lighting and shadows both on the pitch and in the crowd.
The game will release with three versions: the Standard Edition, the David Beckham Edition with extras for My Club and the digital-only Legends Edition which also allows you to add one legend to My Club.
