PES 2016 News Post


Konami has unveiled what they're saying is the full list of licenses you will see in PES 2016. It details what licenses, stadiums and competitions are available, as well as what licenses they own on each continent. Lastly, it highlights which licenses will become active at a later date via a patch.

La Liga, Liga Adelante, LFP Ligue 1, LFP Ligue 2 and Dutch Eredivisie are the leagues that they have fully licensed. On top of that, PES continues to have exclusive Champions League rights.

Head over to the link above or below to read the full list of licenses.

UPDATE: (via Adam Bhatti, PES European Product Manager)

Brazilian league is missing from the licenses post. We have 24 teams fully licensed with official kits, double real players from last year.

We'll update the post ASAP, sorry for any confusion.

I think the list is incomplete, where are the Brazilian League?

St. Jakob Park is an odd choice for a licensed stadium.

Unless you are playing on Xbox, it doesn't matter, it's not EA

Very odd for Shakhtar Donetsk to be missing also a lot of unlicensed national teams. I guess we will see more Europe teams licensed next year via DLC.

I'm really curious what the Euro 2016 mode looks like. I'm not expecting most so I won't be too disappointed.

From a licensed team and stadium point of view, it's less than last year, which was already pretty low. Instead of gaining licenses each year, they seem to lose more each year. For this reason, this game will never compete with FIFA, and it's sad because the gameplay is actually better than FIFA.

This game plays far better than FIFA so it is disappointing that they have next to no licenses. If this game had all the licensing and presentation FIFA has (MONEY) then this game would be the most complete sports game out there. The gameplay is that good. I'm also bias as I'm a huge soccer nerd.

Yup and PES just lost the Argentina Primera División A, in my opinion a tad better than the Campeonato Brasileiro Serié A and the largest top-flight league in the world with 30 (I know it's crazy but fun) teams. No Bombanera, no Monumental, both of which were present in last year's game. This means FIFA snatched it from PES.

It's a pity considering PES' visual enhancements and consistently solid feel. That said, I think Konami is falling into the 'European trap.' Sure, they landed Euro 2016, but that's not a weekly competition that keeps people glued to their clubs. Konami could very well invest in, say, the CONCACAF Champions League, Uruguayan Primera División, or Torneo Descentralizado (Peru). If you're known for your South American leagues, own up to it, especially if you can't compete with EA's financial strength. There are many immigrants in North America who care about South American leagues. That way, you sell more, and add authenticity to the game while boasting of better in-game experience.

I thought it said Argentina was licensed? Unless I'm reading that wrong.

Actually quite surprised that La Bombanera en El Monumental are not in there anymore. It would be more then nice if PES Productions/Konami would give an explantion for this. If they lose some stadiums, the why not add others? I am thinking of De Kuip, which ones was in PES. The amount of stadiums dont really seem to be a focus for the team. It is all about gameplay (hopefully more and better fouls will be in the final version).

Why they don't add in more unlockables is beyond me, cause we ain't all playing ML or online and I want some incentives to play for. Add last years boots, add all the historic balls from EL and CL finals (they had them in before!!), add in some legend teams, add in third kits for teams as unlockables and some historic ones as well. They used to do this better in the past. Now they seem to forget about these kind of things.

As for the licences, like FIFA, I only play with a handful of teams. And us PS4 gamers, at least will have most, if not all, official kits for clubs and nations through the file-share option. I would like to see more Eastern-European teams though, especially for CL and EL tournaments.

Graphically and gameplay-wise, for me, PES is really solid and I like it better then FIFA 16's gameplay. But the devs really, I mean really need to think about what keeps gamers attracted to a game, besides good gameplay.

And last, they need to have some more time/weather options like snow/fog games.

Come on Konami, add better fouls so we have more free kick opportunities (like in real life) and step up the non-gameplay elements. Then we are really back in business again. Still gonna enjoy the game for what it is though! Great job!

Konami has the license for the Japan Football Association and J-League, but these only appear in the Japan version of the game, which has traditionally been marketed as Winning Eleven Soccer. The in-game text/interface is in Japanese. It is strange that Konami never includes Japanese clubs in non-Japan region releases, save for teams playing in the AFC Champions League.

I know bro, but based on the news for the past half a year and the way Konami is running their company lately, nothing in relation to j-league was mentioned and j-league never appeared on next gen consoles ever, so i hope this will be changed this year, please konmai!

I feel you bro. I think it's glaringly obvious that Konami should release the J-League to the world. It is in my view one of the two best leagues in Asia (the K-League being the other one, and it's on the FIFA series). Perhaps more importantly, Konami simply needs to put out a game with greater authenticity. Sure, you can do option files on the PS4 (I'm an Xbox One player), but why have to go down that route when you already have the license to the league! Japan is a huge market for games, but a shade less than one-third the North American market.

Peoples who say this game has no liscenses....... All the top teams from Italy, Portugal, Spain & France are all there. All the Barclays teams will be able to use the edit files for. The Bundesliga will be there to in the Edit file, MLS etc..... So who cares if FIFA has the Belgian, Denmark & Sweedish leagues, because I don't when the game is utterly boring.

The option file being back trumps FIFA, they removed creation centre, Option File edits are amazing, loved the work the community did on PC last year. They had the stadium count at 46 i think.

Like complaining a company like Konami can't get more
liscenses over a juggernaut like EA is like kicking a dead horse, its always been that way. EA? the same people who took 2k football out? idc what liscenses EA paid for, their game is rubbish. Spent 100s of hours on FIFA over
last 5 years, PES is back, PES is evolving, FIFA is stuck in the mud, still a game that revolves around pacey wingers, horrible physics and an absolutely non-existent midfield.

but i guess PES can't compete with FIFA...... ok, whatever that means, on the field? PES is ahead.
