With Pro Evolution Soccer falling far behind FIFA in recent years, Konami’s promised today that the game will go back to its roots. First details, including the first trailer can be found below the break.
“This is an exciting time to be part of the PES community, and PES 2013 marks a new level of playability with the return to our key ethos of utter control and freedom,” European Team PES leader Jon Murphy said this morning.
“Football is all about making magic happen with skill and precision, and PES 2013 truly encapsulates this. Fresh faces within the development team and some very exciting ideas will breathe new life into the PES series, and we look forward to showing what we can do in the coming months.”
The game will see a release on PS3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, PC, PlayStation 2, PSP and 3DS. No Vita version was mentioned.
According to the press release, Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 will introduce total freedom of control over the ball, dynamic first-touch and full manual passing and shooting. The speed of dribbling has also been reduced, and now active one-two passes can be made. Response defending will see players attempt to slow an offensive attack with the help of the R2+X buttons.
Goalkeepers will also see an overhaul in PES 2013, as they’ll give more precise passes and will have more control.
There’s also a new AI system called ProActive AI which combines both control and realism. But that’s not all, PES 2013 will also introduce PlayerID, a system focusing on individual elements of a player, both between the sticks and outfield.
Will this new installment take back the fans EA stole with FIFA?
