UPDATE: Here is the full press release.

Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. will release its official game of the UEFA EURO 2016 tournament as a physical and digital stand alone edition on April 21st for PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3. Existing PES 2016 users on PlayStation®4, XboxOne™, PlayStation®3, Xbox 360™, and Windows PC will receive the dedicated UEFA EURO 2016 content as a free DLC on March 24th.

KONAMI secured the official UEFA EURO 2016 license last year, and all such content will be provided as additional content absolutely free to those owning the full PES 2016 game. This year’s competition takes place in France and will see 24 teams gather for initial group matches before progressing to knock-out stages. Qualified teams from all over Europe will compete for the coveted Henri Delaunay Cup, with the first game played on June 10th, and the final taking place in France’s stunning Stade de France a month later on July 10th. During this time, 50 matches will be played, showcasing Europe’s greatest football talent.

KONAMI’s official UEFA EURO 2016 title will be added to PES 2016’s main menu screen and instantly visible on loading the game. The disc-based release will contain both the full PES 2016 game and UEFA EURO 2016 content. The UEFA EURO 2016 mode will feature full iconography and presentation elements from this year’s tournament, and also includes the Stade de France stadium, which hosts the final in July. From the 24 qualified teams that feature real players with hundreds of authentic player faces, 15 fully licensed teams will be included with the latest strips for England, Wales, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Northern Ireland and hosts France, all perfectly recreated. All squads will also be in line with those of the qualifying nations with the various playing styles perfectly replicated via the game’s innovative Player ID and Team ID systems, which mimic the exact playing styles of both individual players and the team as a whole.

In addition to the central single-player mode, KONAMI will also support the UEFA EURO 2016 content with a series of top-level promotions. The Official PES League will be running online competitions during the duration of the competition, while a series of very special myClub promotions are also planned. myClub is a phenomenally popular option within PES 2016, that allows users to use accrued points or in-game micro-transactions to build a title-winning side and lead them to glory. Running alongside the tournament, KONAMI will release a series of special myClub incentives, including new Euro Special Agents that allow key players that are performing well in the competition to be recruited for use within myClub. Those purchasing the physical copy of the UEFA EURO 2016 title will also receive exclusive myClub rewards, including access to a special Ambassador Agent, seven special Euro agents giving them seven players representing the 24 qualified teams, and 10,000GP each week for 10 weeks.

“All eyes will be on France as Europe’s most prestigious international competition gets underway in June, and we are delighted to present the official game of the UEFA EURO 2016 tournament,” stated Erik Bladinieres, European Brand Director of Football for Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “With such a high standard of football on show, only the PES series could truly recreate it in all its glory. Our team is committed to building a game that matches the pace, skill and excitement of the competition, and introducing its depth and entertaining gameplay to a new wave of fans. Our existing PES fans are the most enthusiastic and committed of any football title, and we are delighted to be giving them the UEFA EURO 2016 content absolutely free, while our accompanying online and myClub promotions will ensure this will be a summer of football to remember.”

KONAMI has also confirmed that its agreement with UEFA extends across its portfolio of football titles. The publisher will be creating bespoke UEFA EURO 2016 content for its PES Club Manager and PES Collection titles for iOS and Android, full details for which will be released shortly.

The final packshot and coverstar for the physical stand alone edition for PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 will be revealed in the weeks ahead.

Mystery team!

LOL, it is 15. I updated the quote, guessing that site will fix it. Once we get the official press release, we will update.

Meh, it's cool that they're doing it for free I guess, although I don't expect it to be anything amazing. Until they fix some of the broken aspects of the game, it's hard to get too worked up about PES.

I don't have high expectations for this, PES has been a massive disappointment for me this year. Took until December to get summer transfers and haven't done a single update since. Can't imagine they'll have more than one or two of the official stadiums available and doubt that this will open up kit slots more than what is available in the base game. But it is free and EA did a poor job with Euro 12 then dropped the license.

PES actually had an update about a week or 2 ago. That being said, I think EA would have did a much better job with this license. Just look at the World Cup game. As for uniforms, if they don't add anymore slots, which I doubt they will, I'm just gonna get rid of some 3rd uniforms for some teams because I barely use them anyway. Plus if you have any manager photos, you should get rid of them because they take up space for uniforms.

They released a patch a couple of weeks ago, but I think Henry was referring to a new data Pack, with the January transfers and hopefully some much needed face scans added. Sadly, this is one of the things Konami neglects badly EVERY year.

The game has so much potential if only it wasn't made by such an awful company.

I've read a few comments from other sites that the next data pack is scheduled for April 21. I don't know how true that is but if so that is insane. The European seasons would be nearly completed. Konami has got to figure out a better way to update and save rosters. Like every other sports game on the market has done.

Weird that they're actually releasing a physical/disc version of this, considering how little they are adding.

I've just accepted that the game is built for 10 minute match length, and the defense is hit or miss at best. It's still 100 times less frustrating than FIFA.

To each his own. I've still yet to see a 0-0 match in PES, even at the 10 minute game length. There's too much space, the shooting is way overpowered, and the GKs are garbage. It really takes away from scoring great goals, because they happen every 2-3 minutes of real time.

FIFA has its issues as well, but I find it to be more like a sim experience than PES, and on World Class I feel like I've really accomplished something when I score. I like and own both games, but Konami's continued negligence on some of these legacy issues will eventually run me off.

Yeah, I have the opposite problem with FIFA. 95% of my matches on WC end 0-0. It's basically pick your poison.

It releases on April 21, but if you have PES 16 already, you can get it March 24th.

It is quite a discrepancy to say the least. I play 30 minute games on FIFA, and generally I find the stats to be pretty realistic. The winning team usually has 15ish shots on goal and usually I see between 1 and 3 goals per game, sometimes more, sometimes less. I just love that game length because I never feel rushed. I can play possession, and if I go down a goal I don't feel panicked to equalize right away.

Really my biggest FIFA gripe is that I feel like the CPU is given some unfair advantages on World Class and Legendary difficulties. Maybe it's just sour grapes, but it just seems like they press me HARD all game long, and yet I always seem to be the one with injured and exhausted players. I can still win on World Class (probably 1 out of every 3), but it's rare that I out-shoot them or dominate possession. I do feel that the last gameplay patch humanized the AI a bit, as I'm now seeing errand passes once in awhile, but it's still really, really hard to beat them on the higher difficulties.

If only we could combine the best attributes from each game......

Stade de France the only stadium???? Wow

I anticipated the lack of new content once they said the DLC was free for those who already purchased PES 2016.
