Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 News Post


Konami has just released a free PES 2013 DLC that includes a roster update, including all of the summer transfers, along with some new online game modes.

Quote:
Our new DLC for PES 2013 will not only contain the greatly anticipated roster updates, which will include all summer transfers, but also add a host of new online game modes.

Our biggest addition will be our new Online Community Mode, which will come with an integrated widget that will allow players to play different game modes while waiting for opponents and which serves as a shortcut to gathering and finding online friends. In our Online Community mode, apart from being able to create communities and track results, up to 4 players will be able to join up and form a team and play against other community teams. That means up to 8 players can play simultaneously!

And if things are just not going your way, we now give you the option to give up and abandon a match during halftime in Quick Match.

Amongst these upgrades we have also implemented several tweaks to improve your online performance.

It seems that the DLC has been removed as the game did not offer me an update as of 2 hours ago. Is anyone else seeing this? In the information section of the game modes, it states that it has been pulled due to technical issues.

ˆˆ Yeah mate. The DLC is a no go. Apparently it was making system crash and freeze.

Konami withdrew the DLC. They kept the Version 1.01 update with the widgets and gameplay tuning. At least I think the gameplay is tuned?!

Who knows how long it will take konami to sort the bugs with DLC, anyone?

It's a great data pack. 566 new players and the best boot update ive seen.

Along with the patch, pes 13 just got a ton better

Could you elaborate on the tuning? Would like to understand what areas of the game feel different.

Well Konami never stated what aspects they tuned & changed.

But after 12 or so games online and about 6 offline I've found these ones, and had a good friend who's been playing draw similar if not identical conclusions:
  • AI defensive pressure and awareness increased.
  • Refs more lenient in allowing physicality from defenders
  • Defensive jostling and marking tightened up -- this is a direct counter the constant through ball spamming.*
  • More diversity from CPU teams in offline with the ball. Backheels, bicycle kicks, slower build up play etc ... They are scoring some nice goals.
  • A general upgrade and improvement in hardness on all levels (offline).**
  • Goalkeepers have improved. You can still tell an elite goalie from a good one from a bad one. But the gap isn't so significant as to with a bad goalie, any shot on goal can score while he ball watches it dribble into the net.
  • Passing has tightened up. The long looping long passes now reach their destination quicker and more accurately, allowing you to actually switch attack with success.
  • I have noticed a lot more midfield battling. More interceptions, smarter AI blocking passing lanes. The CPU & User pass% now in my games regularly reads in the 60-70%, where before it was regularly in the 80's.

There would have to be more too. It seems everytime I play I'm seeing a new animation of a bicycle kick in general play -- ie a defender clearing a pass or shot on goal with a diving header etc


*You still see through balls, especially if you leave your defenders too high up the pitch, and so you should. But the the thru balls inside the final 3rd of the pitch have dried up as defenders now can jostle and slow down the attacking players for enough time to call a help defender in to dispose them of the ball.

** I was playing SS level with Southampton and I was a mid table team. Won, drew & lost roughly the same amount of games. Now I struggle to win on top player. I just lost 5-0 in a ML game with the original players to Motherwall on Top Player. That's never happened in 40 odd games -- me losing 5- nil.

Great post, appreciate the attention to detail.

I played an offline match last night, so also seeing much better gameplay, as you mention. The game was amazing day-1, but this really had me on the edge of my seat. The biggest piece for me was the AI improvements for more realism. Once the data pack is available on 360 this is going to be even more amazing!

This update, impressions thread, and overall reviews have sold me. I will be buying my first soccer game ever. Now, I need to read the articles OS did on soccer.

As far as I know that is true but it because of MS I believe.
 
# 14 Randiesel75 @ 10/15/12 05:59 PM
Confirmed. I was just online and couldn't pull the new data pack. I have my fingers crossed this will be available tomorrow.

I mean this is a joke, it really is. The graphics are second rate, Master league is second rate, Licensing is second rate, online play is second rate, the control scheme is awful and counterintuitive, and now this, Summer transfers STILL not updated on October 16th. The ONLY thing good about this game is the on the pitch play, and I'm not even sure that beats FIFA once the CTT's and sliders are applied. I'm trying to like this game I really am, but damn I didn't expect the "off field" stuff to be this bad and this far behind FIFA.

Why is online second rate?For me playing online on pass assistance bar to zero seems better than fifa.

ok I am using the only option file available for PS3.. and when I downloaded the new data pack... and then check rosters.. rosters are still the same. Am I doing something wrong?

I haven't really tried to fix it yet because I been so into MLO.. even though I will say MLO is so damn frustrating.. it's also addicting setting up your team's formations and buying and releasing players. seriously.. that's the addicting part.. the frustrating part is everyone is so dam good online. I swear my record in MLO is a joke.. I'm like 7- 5 - 27 and all my wins is from playing coach mode or the other team quit or lost connection before match. even though I have never got my first win I will say this mode is pretty addicting..

one of the very frustrating aspect I try not to get mad about anymore is when I get matched up with someone that has the likes of Pato and world beaters on their squad and ranked a lot higher than me. I try to play all defense but I still don't have a chance.. lol it's so damn frustrating... although in coach mode I have been able to beat one of these teams.

go into edit mode>transfers>and press triangle, that will update the rosters.

I guess they didn't fix the injury/stoppage time issue? I play 15 minute halves, and I never get more than 1 minute of extra time, regardless of how many injuries, goals or stoppages there are. It's always either 1 minute or 0 minutes. Is this just an Xbox version issue? Vidoes I've seen on youtube from the PC version have more extra time.
