PES 2015 News Post



According to a report on VideoGamer.com yesterday, Pro Evolution Soccer 2015 will be 'totally changed' for this upcoming year's release.

Konami Europe head Shinji Hirano told MCV Magazine that the franchise was ready for a comeback in 2015.

"I cannot give details on exactly what we are doing with the UK studio, but they are working on the next project and looking at the needs of the European people. It's about globalizing the franchise, so it is not just being developed by Japanese people."

In the article, Hirano is quoted as saying that Konami recognizes the mistakes PES has made and the company is ready to fix them.

PES 2015 will be making its next-gen debut on the PS4 (at least) later this year.

I really hope PES comes through with a strong product. I'm loving FIFA 14 on PS4, but I love having another strong title to mix it up.

Wow, really. After all the hype last year. So then what do they even men by "totally change?" Does that mean no more Fox Engine? Sounds like a game and a production team that's just blowing in the wind.

Typical PES. Another year, another promise, another product that does nothing to regain any of the franchises lost glory.

It's staggering to see Konami grope and struggle to see what virtually the entire planet knows is the shortcoming of PES - awful interface and presentation overall, sub-par graphics, and lack of licenses are what keeps the series back.

What the series excels at is the game on the pitch. That game, to me, is the best representation of soccer on the field.

I hope that they release this game and it is awesome. I also hope they release it on the Xbox One. If not, I won't be getting it.

They do have a long way to go, but I think with improved keepers, and increased CPU IQ, I'd be happy. I think the overall look of the game is promising heading into next-Gen.

Shooting mechanics in PES is AWFUL!

PES running animation looks AWFUL as well.

Yeah, same for me. Having two strong footy titles would be great!

Can't wait. I love FIFA 14 manual settings online, but I still miss the uniqueness of the matches on PES.

I used to love PES (way back from the ISS days). It used to be brilliant but I don't know how they managed to mess up such an awesome franchise. I think the problem in the first place is the game's lack of identity which is still evident to this day. Look at their annual slogan: change, change change.

How about just sticking back to the old formula, add some presentation/animation and it just may not be too late to save this sinking ship.

I'm wary of this as well. The Fox Engine was one of the main selling points and it led to some interesting moments on the pitch. I'd say 2014's on-field gameplay was close to next-gen FIFA but was severely limited by its few licenses and the last-gen hardware. PC was, by far, the best platform PES2014 released on.

If 2015 ends up becoming a Madden-type "scrap and rebuild" effort after one disappointing but optimistic year, I'm not sure what to expect from the next PES.

Smells like EA shill in here...

Yep, definitely EA shill.

I hope that by "totally changed" they mean the entire game in regards to modes, presentation, online, editing, commentary, menus and licenses and not the gameplay itself;ll those things lacked a lot which made the game have little replay value despite good gameplay overall. Those aspects maybe weren't that important during the PS2 era but nowadays to compete with FIFA you've to bring everything on the table if you want gamers' attention.

I thought the addition of Fox engine and its animation and graphic additions but felt it was half-made and felt it wasn't ready for this generation like it felt restricted to this gen's limitations. Hopefully the European studio will open the main studio's mind and made them realize that there're several stuff that need fixing on the gameplay, an outsider's opinion may be what they need.

One thing that I don't understand is when people say PES like licenses, which ones do they mean? PES can't have the EPL and Bundesliga but then I believe they cover the other main leagues quite well although I wish they added a fake German league with correct names like they do with the Premier League, and add a few licenses national teams or create better resembled NT's uniforms (I don't know why Uruguay's away kit is yellow in the game).

I thought the graphics were quite good for last-gen.

Master League needs a huge face lift. There needs to be some sort of roster share too. They should try to get the Championship and all of the other 2nd tier leagues.

The perfect game that KONAMI can re-make.

WE9:LE

To make it "current"

-updated Squad/rosters
-updated Stadiums
-updated Graphics (more nexgen, challenging for PCs)
-updated Presentation (TV,Menu,etc)
-promotion/relegation in their game modes (BAL for example)

That's it. That's all that needs to be done. I could do everything but the promotion/relegation and the updated Graphics.

Stop trying to reinvent the wheel. Fox Engine was a joke - the stupid unrealistic animation of acceleration just destroyed PES14. The defensive line following the attackers into the box was the biggest let down.

Physics of the ball is awful too, there is no 'oomph' to long shots, and hard shots within the box travel so slowly, I know this is a PES thread, but if there was something FIFA got perfectly right, it's their ball physics, so satisfying to crack those longshots and hard shots in their game.

Hmmm this is more a wait and see for me. I am tired of KONAMI using every superlative to describe their new installment every year only for it to barely match the quality.

Is that the one which is considered the PES with the best gameplay? I don't know if I've played.
Also, I'd say they need to do more than that, games today need more than good gameplay; look at NBA 2K14 for next-gen, one can say it's the best basketball game in regards to its gameplay but the amount of issues with their game modes has ruined the game for many people. Sports games need the whole package to be considered good games, gameplay only isn't enough.

Exactly. Konami needs to deliver a complete package. If you don't have licenses because the other company locked you out, work on your game modes and make them ground-breaking. For example, PES had the concept of "Youth System" first but they did nothing to improve it. The other company incorporated scouting reports. How about youth/reserve games with match reports? Hell, make the either playable and/or viewable. I could look past some of the gameplay/engine flaws in '14 but the fact that ML was so bare-bones made it incredibly boring.
