UEFA Euro 2016 DLC Coming March 24th

by

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. Erik Bladinieres, European Brand Director of Football for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. stated:

All eyes will be on France as Europe’s most prestigious international competition gets underway in June, and we are delighted to present the official game of the UEFA EURO 2016 tournament. With such a high standard of football on show, only the PES series could truly recreate it in all its glory. Our team is committed to building a game that matches the pace, skill and excitement of the competition, and introducing its depth and entertaining gameplay to a new wave of fans. Our existing PES fans are the most enthusiastic and committed of any football title, and we are delighted to be giving them the UEFA EURO 2016 content absolutely free, while our accompanying online and myClub promotions will ensure this will be a summer of football to remember.

There will also be special Euro 2016 content created for the PES Club Manager and PES Collection titles for iOS and Android. Be sure to let us know if you are looking forward to the UEFA Euro 2016 content in the comment section below.

Will this update include a gameplay patch? If manual headers STILL haven’t been fixed by then hopefully they will be for PES 2017.

Only 1 Eruo 2016 stadium? How is this adding up to the real Euro 2016 experience?

While I’m grateful that Konami are giving this DLC away for free, because I don’t think its worth paying for, I think they should have let EA Sports handle this license. Just look at what EA did for the World Cup game, every team licensed, even teams that didn’t qualify… Read more »

EA’s track record hasn’t been that great either the 2012 EURO did have all stadiums but didn’t license Ukraine one of the hosts! And thought it had all 53 teams many others didn’t have real kits and real players. The 2014 World cup had all players but was only old… Read more »

Have to agree very disappointing not every team is licensed, surprised any FA would not want their country included in the official video game. Also lack of stadiums is a major flaw not just for PES 2016 game in general but especially for the Euro 16 DLC. Nice to have… Read more »

If the qualifying rounds aren’t included with this, then what are Konami really adding on with this game mode besides an official license and a couple of more licensed teams and one stadium. The Euro 2016 tournament is already in game. There’s no way Konami could have charged gamers for… Read more »

It is indeed just a data pack. It seems that they did not want to spend a lot of money in this project.
