And its nothing but great news for all PES fans!
Aside from the additional footwear and balls, Seabass & Co have been working hard at fixing in-game elements – certain things in direct response to fan feedback. Konami missed a trick when they forget to let users saved custom tactics and formations, especially as it was one of the key inclusions in this years game. Thankfully thats now been fixed, meaning no more re-doing the whole thing before every game. There’s also new connectivity indicators, making it much easier to spot people with poor connection.
But the REAL good news from the update comes once you actually start playing the game. There’s an instant realization that things have changed for the better, without ever being as clear as night and day. The ref’s for example are much stricter, and with it more realistic. Loads more fouls are given, and finally lots more penalties. There’s also a new found smoothness with the game, in how it flows and responds to your commands.
Currently many people are refraining from stating these improvements as facts, but right now the general feeling is a lot has changed for the better. Make sure you download the update as soon as possible and let us know what you think here.
