Good news for soccer fans out there. Konami announced that they will be releasing a free-to-play edition of Pro Evolution Soccer 2016. The game is available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on December 8.
Next month, the first version of the game can be played for free. It features an Exhibition Mode, where gamers can play seven teams including France, Brazil, Bayern Munich, Juventus, and Roma. Gamers can also build their own team and train their own players via MyClub option.
This entry-level version is described as "overview of the game's stunning levels of control," and it will be compatible with all future content updates throughout the entire season of PES 2016.
MyClub, PES's alternative to FIFA's player-collecting Ultimate Team, has made a huge step to improve each player's ability, and it give gamers an opportunity to use surplus players as 'trainers'.
According to a review from the Telegraph, games in the PES 2016 are unpredictable and undefinable. Every match has its own personality, depending on the team and player's ability. Gamers are given enough control and room for expression to play the game.
The game has a unique set of tactics and matchup management system that is always a pleasure to play. The latest PES has dozens of technical triumphs, and its mechanics is quite exciting. Everything in the game is a combination of dynamic gameplay and independent user controls.
"Thanks to the smooth, physical gameplay, the amazing animations and the various and strategic game modes, PES 16 is easily the best title in the franchise," a review from PlayStationLifeStyle said.
Furthermore, ball control is about timing and button presses, with players able to shuffle away from minimal contact. Gamers should be smart about charging into challenges as they have no idea where the ball might go. It should be about maneuvering the ball from both ends of the court.
For in-game players, PES developers created an excellent simulation of real-life players like Arjen Robben's spring-heeled zip and Cristiano Ronaldo's preening lope from a mile off. Gamers should know what type of players they are using to maximize their abilities. Players like Messi, Neymar and Ronaldo, can move the ball efficiently that could be a huge advantage for the team.
Most of the games today is about strategy and gamer's individual skill. PES 2016 provides a smart, thrilling, strategic and unpredictable game for football fans.
