Konami has announced and officially presented "PES 2018", the new installment of its popular sports franchise that will be displayed in detail in the next E3 2017.
The 2018 iteration of the annual soccer game will launch on September 12 in the USA, and September 14 in Europe and Asia.
The fan favorite Random Selection Match returns with new presentation and features. The Japanese publisher recently confirmed when "Pro Evolution Soccer" 2018 will release on PC and consoles. Referred to as "strategic dribbling", players will be able to make small, contextual gestures via control input to either shield possession from opponents or wrong-foot them with small, subtle but tactile movements depending on the part of the body the ball interacts with.
PES 2018 will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox360. A presentation overhaul includes real player images throughout the game's menus, while "enhanced visual reality" aims to upgrade existing lighting effects, player models and motion capture.
According to the announcement, PES 2018 is set to focus on the concept that the game is "Where Legends are Made" offering new features, new ways to play, and an "unrivalled gameplay experience".
