eFootball PES 2020 Launch Day Patch & Data Pack 1 Details Revealed - Updated Rosters Arrive 2 Days After Launch

With eFootball PES 2020 scheduled to arrive on September 10, Konami has posted their schedule, on what to expect in-game, during launch week.

September 10th (Launch Day)

  • Data Pack 1.01 releases, bringing with it updated player models and licenses
  • Patch 1.01.01 releases, bringing with it a number of fixes and balance adjustments based on community feedback
  • The first ever Matchday event, UEFA EURO 2020, kicks off in-game

* Depending on where you live, Data Pack 1.01 and Patch 1.01.01 may release on an earlier date.

September 12th (First Scheduled Maintenance)

  • PES 2020’s first Live Update scheduled for release, bringing with it the updated player rosters.
  • Players who have performed well in recent international matches to be released in-game as the first batch of Featured Players (POTW: National Sep 12 ’19)

Note: The latest player rosters will only be available once the September 12 Live Update is implemented. As such, we recommend those who wish to play modes such as Master League with the latest team and player rosters to wait until the Live Update is released. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

See below for further details regarding the updates and events coming to PES 2020 in launch week.

Day One Update and Launch Week Events

The following content is coming to PES 2020 in an update file that will release on launch day (September 10th 2019).

Data Pack 1.01

Content

  • New licensed national teams: Russia, Andorra
  • Club lists for the Belgian Jupiler Pro League First Division A and the Italian 2nd Division updated
  • New licensed national team players from Morocco, Egypt, Costa Rica, Honduras, Paraguay, Côte d’Ivoire, Panama and Montenegro
  • 28 new/updated player face models (Mostly from PES Partner Clubs)
  • New/updated portrait images for over 100 players

  • 4 new boot models
  • Serie A TIM (Italy) and 3F Superliga (Denmark) official ball designs added

Patch 1.01.01

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused player stamina to drain quicker than intended when using Teammate Controls or the Dynamic One-Two pass in Online Matches.
  • Fixed an issue that occasionally caused both sticks to become unresponsive when using Skill Controls at the same time as Finesse Dribble.

Gameplay Adjustments

  • Adjusted the foul system to increase its accuracy.
  • Improved the responsiveness of Finesse Dribble controls when trapping the ball.
  • Adjusted the interaction between player and ball when executing a Kick Feint while trapping.

In addition to the above, a variety of other minor adjustments have been made to each mode to improve the overall gaming experience.

Live Updates

  • The first Live Update is scheduled for release on 9/12/2019. Live Updates will then be released on Thursday every week thereafter.

What are Live Updates?

  • The Live Update feature ensures that PES is always aligned closely with the real world of football. Data from real matches being played around the world is collated on a weekly basis and implemented in-game to create a more authentic experience. The data included in each Live Update is sourced from matches played over the weekend and is applied to the game every Thursday. These updates affect various aspects of the game, including player Condition Ratings, team rosters and team strategies.

Launch Week Events and Featured Players

Featured Player Series Name: “POTW: National Sep 12 ’19” – Release Date: 9/12/2019

  • “Featured Players” are special versions of players that are released in-game with boosted stats and limited-edition player portrait designs. These players are chosen based on their exceptional performance in real-world matches, and are signable in-game using Agents. The first series of Featured Players coming to PES 2020 after launch is titled “POTW: National Sep 12 ’19”, and is themed after national teams from around the world. The portrait design for these players will display them wearing their national team’s kit.

PES 2020 Inaugural Matchday Event: UEFA EURO 2020 – Start Date: 9/10/2019

  • As the name suggests, the first event coming to Matchday mode is themed after UEFA EURO 2020. Starting on September 10th, PES 2020’s inaugural Matchday event will see countries competing in UEFA EURO 2020 divided into two Matchday Sides: home and away. Pick a country and earn Event Points to climb the rankings for a chance to be selected as your side’s Representative for the Matchday Grand Final. Even if you aren’t chosen as Representative, you’ll still receive some awesome rewards for spectating, so be sure to hop online during the Grand Final and support your Side.

*Please note that the first Matchday event will be available in Japan from 9/12/2019.

  1. I'm excited, although it sucks that they don't have the rosters ready. Not sure why an extra 2 days would be needed but whatevs.
    I'm anxious to actually apply that first Live Update, very curious whether they'll let us decline tactical updates, in the event we prefer to edit our own.

    Konami has had these issues before. One year it took them until Dec (i think?) to update the rosters because they were so behind the times on how to deliver the service.

    I have a dumb question. I'm going to buy on PS4 and don't have PS+. Can I still update squads without having online? Thanks for any replies

    Yes. You can still update without PS+. Enjoy!

    There were a lot of transfers IRL that weren’t done until a few days after the deal. I guess the clubs involved registered them in-time but they weren’t reported until late.

    Probably because on the 12th all the version of the games will have been released (the asian version only releases on 12th). I believe last year was the same thing, the US version was released two days earlier than the EU version and we only had the roster update when all the versions were released.

    Any impressions; I won't be able to play the game until Thursday or Friday since I rented it from Gamefly.

    I’ve been researching a bit about this game. Love the gameplay (demo) and apparently the franchise mode is strong. I’ve never been a big soccer gamer, but the gameplay feels more organic than other sports genres.
    I have the option to buy for PS4 or Xbox. Seems like PS4 has the option to download team rosters. How is the community? Do reputable folks make rosters on an annual basis like MLB The Show and NBA 2k?
    Any tips for a newbie?
    Thanks guys and gals!!

    If you have a choice, get the PS4 version.
    XBOX does not allow for the import of real Option Files, the Option File for PS4 will complete all teams to be 'fully licensed' with kits, names, badges etc
    PC goes even further with modding if that is also an option for you.
    I can vouch for many of the option files for being very good, just watch a guide as to how to install on your PS4 (easy process) and you are all set.

    Thank you! Can you add team rosters to existing franchise mode? (not sure what PES calls this mode)
    Or do you have to wait for the rosters to be complete and added to option files before starting my franchise?
    Thank you!

    The PesUniverse and PES World are usually the best for option files IMO but you can't add any teams to an existing Master League save file. You should be able to get a good option file that covers all of the big leagues this week.

    Very nice! Can’t believe it’s that quick..
    I bought the game. This is my first soccer video game purchase in 10+ years. Super excited!
    It’s great to see the game has an in-depth skills trainer. I will start here first, then maybe scrimmage a little after I learn the fundamental controls.
    Gameplay feels buttery smooth which is why I bought the game.
    I purchased the game for PS4 so that I can download the roster files when they become available.
    Question for everyone, how are the roster files created? Do users create all the teams/players/ratings/etc? Or all all teams in the game with players with accurate ratings and the roster guys go in and update names/numbers/teams names etc?
    Newbie here. Any input is appreciated. Cheers!

    Most of the teams already have players with ratings and etc. but the only league that usually gets created from scracth is the Bundesliga since they don't have a fake league already in place. The option file usually replaces the generic kits and emblems with the real life replicas and as well as updating any missing national team kits. National teams usually get updated down the line which usually replaces fake players and kits which is really important IMO before starting a Master League.

    Royce- Thank you! Just curious, how are National teams incorporated into Master League? It was my understanding you take control of a club in ML, not a National team.
    Thanks!
    Gamestop and Best Buy had zero physical copies. Not because they were sold out, they just didn't have any. But I can buy it online and get it friday. Happy release day.

    Man, I used to hit up Gamestop constantly, now I literally cannot remember the last time I went to one, or went anywhere to purchase a game for that matter.

    It's only good for discovering older used games. Or if you need 50 copies of NBA 2K20.
    Like, I'm the type they should be desperate to hang on to. I buy physical copies, and I'd rather buy them in person. But they've give up too, obviously.
    I just paid for a membership at PES Universe. I look forward to downloading the roster project.
    Has anyone ever used their project?
    I know they update leagues, team names, jerseys (kits) and stats.
    Do they add new cyber faces for players as well?
    I posted it in other thread but if you missed them, here's my gameplay videos from the full game if you are interested:
    All of them are at TOP PLAYER difficulty:

    The quality of their kits are really amazing plus they actually work on updating tactics thanks to Klashman being on their team. (He is a member on this forum).
    And for faces they don't add new cyberfaces, Konami usually does this and they add A LOT throughout the year.

    Quick question. I have pesuniverse OF. Excellent start. As they update it. And I import to game, will the graphics portions of OF update in existing ML? Or I have to restart?

    Yeah all the kits and emblems will show up in the current save file the only issue will be once they started adding new leagues, those won't show up.

    Is it just me, or did they REALLY tone down the fouls? Like nearly eliminated fouls all over again. Granted, I've only played 2 matches (10 min halves), but I've not been fouled once by the AI. Playing on top player. It feels like pes 16 with the fouls.

    I am playing 12 minutes halves and Top Player and having between 3 and 5 fouls per game, including both teams. I even had a penalty earlier today!!!!! Of course the GK defended. :brickwall
    I think the fouls are OK now, all the fouls that were given i believe were really fouls, some of sliding tackles where the defender hits the attacker before the ball or because of much pressure with the X trying to steal the ball.
