Konami have today revealed that the UEFA Euro 2016 content will be available first on March 24th.
March 24th will be the date that current owners of PES 2016 get the DLC for the dedicated Euro 2016 content completely free. For those who haven’t got PES 2016, the UEFA Euro 2016 game will also get a standalone physical and digital release on April 21st.
The UEFA Euro 2016 content will be added on to the main menu screen upon its release, with the standalone game including both PES 2016 and the UEFA Euro 2016 content. It will feature full iconography and presentation elements from this year’s tournament, and also includes the Stade de France stadium, which hosts the final in July. From the 24 qualified teams that feature real players with hundreds of authentic player faces, 15 fully licensed teams will be included with the latest strips for England, Wales, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Northern Ireland and hosts France, all perfectly recreated. Squads will be fully up to date with the team playing styles perfectly replicated due to Player ID and Team ID systems.
There will also be a series of top-level promotions to support the content. PESLeague will be running online competitions, whilst a number of special myClub promotions are also planned. There will be a series of special myClub incentives, which include new Euro Special Agents. This allows key players that are performing well in the competition to be recruited for use within myClub. Those who purchase the standalone UEFA Euro 2016 game will also receive exclusive myClub rewards, including access to a special Ambassador Agent, seven special Euro agents giving them seven players representing the 24 qualified teams, and 10,000GP each week for 10 weeks.
