Get ready to control reality as Konami have today lifted the lid on PES 2017, which is due to be released this Autumn.
PES 2017 will be available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC via Steam. There are some key new features that have been announced, as well as one particular one about the AI that is interesting to say the least!. PES 2017 will be shown during the PES League World Finals, between May 27th – 28th. Tomotada Tashiro, President at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V stated:
Exclusive to Pro Evolution Soccer, it is fitting that we use the UEFA Champions League Final, the world’s greatest club competition, and the culmination of another hugely successful PES League season to reveal PES 2017. As 32 of the world’s best PES players gather to compete, our commitment to reaching new heights of realism and fun will also be demonstrated. May 27th and 28th will be a celebration of all that is great about football – and the first showing of PES 2017 will elevate the series to a whole new level.
Here is the official line on the new features:
See how different players control the ball in unique and different ways based on where and how you control them, dictating the flow of the game based on how they react to the unpredictable movement of the ball.
Combining Real Touch and real ball physics, passing is an art form in PES 2017. Many factors determine the speed and accuracy of the ball. The pass that is made on the best situation and timing will generate a perfect trajectory, creating a great satisfaction when a killer pass is made.
Total Team Control
Users can instantly change the attacking and defending mentality of the team, which can be tweaked and carefully controlled with simple controls, being able to immediately react to the unpredictability of the sport.
Keepers see a great jump in quality through added motions and animations, creating the most agile keepers in PES history. Attacking moments will be more dramatic than ever, bringing the best feeling of achievement when that goal is scored.
Corner Kick Strategies
Control the defensive strategies on a set piece, such as marking zonal or Man to Man. Offensive options also included such as specific player movement.
Strategies that are quite individually defined such as Tiki-taka and Tight Marking which is strongly based on team ideology can be set in Advanced Instructions, which adds a huge variety in how you plan to win.
For PES 2017 the visuals have seen a major upgrade, offering Authentic Visuals thanks to the further incorporation of Fox Engine. Nothing has been left untouched, from player models, lighting, crowds, pitch and stadiums totally revamped. Never has a game looked so real.
For the first time in a football game, the AI will learn how you play! Player and team behavior has always been a staple of the PES series, and for PES 2017 Adaptive AI will change sports games forever.
Natural Player Movement
Hundreds of new animations have been added to bring the players and goalkeepers to life – but it doesn’t stop there. New features such as Real Touch and Precise Pass see huge benefit, giving a vast array of movements when trapping and passing the ball.
The road to PES 2017 officially begins today! Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
I am waiting for trailer. I am waiting for proper PES since PES 2014/WE9LE. Fifa 16 its not to bad, but I hope this year I will be playing PES again. 🙂

I don’t doubt that the game will be brilliant offline, but everyone knows this game is a shit show online. Laggy connections, lag cheaters, taking several minutes to find a game. I love 16, but online is horrible, that’s where fifa shines and PES needs to improve the online experience… Read more »
