PES 2019 Data Pack 2.0 Available Now - Updated Player Faces, New Stadiums, Boots & Much More, Full Details Here

Konami announced PES 2019 Data Pack 2.0 is scheduled to arrive on October 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC STEAM, featuring over 100 updated player faces within the game, as well as updates to stadiums and a new range of football boots.

PES 2019 Data Pack 2.0 will also expand its growing list of league licenses, with the full list of the CFA Super League and Thai League club teams and logos being added to the roster of teams available in the game.

Following the announcement of AS Monaco as a new partner club for PES 2019, Data Pack 2.0 will see the club’s Stade Louis II now available in both afternoon and night modes, meaning players can experience the 18,500-seat stadium in perfect detail both in daytime and under the floodlights. Also included will be the new eFootball.Pro Arena which will play host to upcoming eSports competitions, details will be announced shortly.

Data Pack 2.0 will also feature a range of gameplay updates, particularly focusing on improved AI performance. These include more variation in the attacking style of COM opponents and better goalkeeper AI in 1v1 situations. Other gameplay improvements will see the accuracy of chip shots adjusted, improved headers and defender positioning.

  • COM opponents will now play less long passes from the centre of the pitch to the wing
  • COM opponents will now play less low crosses from the wing
  • COM opponents will now display enhanced understanding of opposing player positions and will attack the goal more aggressively
  • COM opponents will now display improved logic concerning shooting, enabling them to take advantage of a greater variety of situations and opportunities
  • Goalkeepers will now display improved AI in 1v1 situations, ensuring that they rush out to meet players converging on the goal
  • Fixed an issue that prevented defenders from position freely, causing them to occasionally become stuck behind opponents when competing for goal kicks and other high balls
  • Improved the accuracy of headers on-goal performed by players who aren’t under pressure
  • Adjust the accuracy of chip shots

Elsewhere, player equipment has also seen an update, with three sports brands featuring their latest footwear in the game. New boots from Nike, adidas and Puma have all been added to keep player appearances as up to date as possible.

  1. This all sounds great, I'm cautiously optimistic.  Even if they do nothing about the lack of creativity the AI has with the dribble, this would still be a game changer of a patch. 
    That said, why don't they just add an extra check box, when DLing a Live Update, where you can decide whether you update team tactics?  One of the best things about the option files of yore was the carefully edited tactics, which have been completely negated the past few years.
    Just doesn't make sense to me.
    Question for you guys.When the new data pack 2 arrives,do you have to start over to get all the player face scans and stadiums in your master league.And is the Scottish League being updated with new faces and stadiums for Rangers and Celtic.Thanks guy's.
    No,  you don't have to start your ML over to get the new face scans or stadiums. As for the Scottish stuff being added, specifically for Celtic and Rangers, no word yet.
    Fifa 19 will have a shelf life on my PS4 of six days of this patch does everything it says. I've kept it on since my install of Evo because ii wasn't sure Konami would address the AI.
    It appears they have. Fingers crossed.
    Question-  I bought this game as a digital download from the xbox store but I can't accept the policy terms, it won't let me. I can only click where it says " do not accept"  so where I try to log in to the pes severes it won't let me, therefore I can't play online ( which I don't care about ) but I fear I won't be able to get this data patch.  Do you guys have this problem? or what am I doing wrong? thanks in advance because I love this game and play it more than all my games but I want the update and new league but fear I won't be able to if I don't accept the terms but it won't let me.

    Question-* I bought this game as a digital download from the xbox store but I can't accept the policy terms, it won't let me. I can only click where it says " do not accept"* so where I try to log in to the pes severes it won't let me, therefore I can't play online ( which I don't care about ) but I fear I won't be able to get this data patch.* Do you guys have this problem? or what am I doing wrong? thanks in advance because I love this game and play it more than all my games but I want the update and new league but fear I won't be able to if I don't accept the terms but it won't let me.*

    You possibly need to click into the policy terms and/or scroll to the bottom of them, in the pretence that you've read them, which then triggers the enablement of the option to click "accept".
    Thank you so much Winston! I did what you said but couldn't find anywhere to accept but after clicking on all three of the policies it than let me accept the terms and now I am online, so you helped a lot, thank you!

    Well...update 1.05 is downloading to my PS4 and it's 2.5 gigs. Guess Xmas came early tonight.
    Time for a glass of wine.

    Nice ! Can't wait to play it myself in the evening
    3 main things I noticed in the past 5 games I've played on this patch.
    The goalies come out and challenge the player quite well and I've seen a few good saves like that.
    Headers are better now and feel easier to connect and target the net as well as clearing the ball.
    AI players will actually keep running on breakaways and even score!
    I'm sure there is a few more things I haven't really noticed yet but overall it feels good.
    cheers for that, cant wait to try it out
    Ive not played PES since my fav soccer game PES5 and 6. It was mostly fifa since then but this year PES plays so well, the animations, motion etc. feels so natural compared to the robotic and now slightly cartoony fifa.

    Wow no Scottish teams update,no stadiums or face scans.Anybody know if this is going to happen,Rangers and Celtic are partners.
    I was hoping for this too. Apparently they said that the stadiums will be in a Dec update, smh.
    It I would have known that I would have bought Fifa now and bought pes at a reduced price.At least give us the scanned faces.Every game you buy these days you have to wait for downloads and updates.They should not promise things that may come out in half a year.Wow.
    Anybody having an issue where the Brazil national team is coming up as all fake players?
    Other than that glitch, I'm liking the gameplay changes. I'm back to playing on Top Player and having it be a fun challenge.

    So has anyone tried the update yet? This is going to be a looong work day :(

    I tried the new gameplay for 3-4 master league games and YES guys, good news! The PES that we all know is back !!!
    The way CPU attacks is completely normal now. They go direct to the goal, no more low cross non-sense.
    Offensively the crosses are better for user team, you can score more often by timely crosses now (Finally)
    Goalkeepers go off their line more often to narrow the goal angle.
    Strikers shoot the ball more often when they have the chance, they don't play with the ball.
    Off-ball player movement is slightly better in terms of cpu team-mates going to the space instead of waiting on their position, constantly moving.
    Refs. do not allow CPU clipping user controlled players and getting away without a foul. Now they are called as foul !
    Refs. go back to the foul when you go to a disadvantaged position after your teammate gets fouled. In the past you had to lose the ball for ref. to go back and call the foul. This time if you don't move forward with it or in a disadvantaged position, ref. calls the foul even after 2-3 seconds after the foul occured
    Side Note: Transfers in ML is still broken. Still easier to convince high level players to play for your team. Marco Asensio and Lucas Moura to Fenerbahce. 3,5 star team.... I got them for 24 mil. euros and 28 mil. euros. It would never happen in rl. Asensio and Moura at high level won't even sniff Turkish league. After 30+ years old- maybe.
    Let's enjoy the game

    With all the RDR2 hype I haven't had the opportunity to actually try out the patch. I'm going to start a new Master League later tonight. I'm excited.

    I believe the Brazil team has always been fake.

    KennyJ1976
    Yes, the Brazilian NT was fake at launch. It has something to do with Brazil because it's fake in FIFA as well.

    Weird. I must have loaded an option file before checking that roster earlier on. I wonder what the deal with that team is.
    Shadak
    Same here, started playing RDR2 so only briefly tested PES but its very nice to see its getting better with the patch!

    The opposite for me. RDR2 was sitting there waiting for me but I went with patch update. Will try RDR2 on the weekend, lol
    the ai is so ridiculous...
    after every goal takes a miracle to stop them scoring...
    just went up 3-2 in the 86th minute.. set the team to defensive.
    I clear the ball for a goal kick. their keeper kicked it halfway down the pitch to their left winger, he one touches a through ball to an open striker for a thunderbolt in the top corner lmaoo such bull****
    scripting is unreal
    at least the AI attack in different ways.. but yeah, every game is a goal fest. if you score they score.
    I was ready to sell the game but I'm glad I waited for the patch.
    It certainly addresses a few issues and makes the game more enjoyable.
    After playing the pre-patch version for a while and then FIFA 19 for a month, I have come to the conclusion that the only way to enjoy and be successful at this game is to exert patience and learn good positioning. Instead of tackling with your defenders, I now play positional football with my midfielders and only tackle with my midfielders and leave the defenders for the AI to control.
    If you position your defence correctly, put the defender (or midfielder) between striker and goal and not rush into challenges then you have a chance. However if you take control of your CB with the aim to put pressure, more often than not the CPU will burn you and play a one-two or simply pivot around your man.
    I actually decided to switch to the "fan" camera which is really zoomed out with the objective to get a better view of the pitch. This aids playing positional football and getting a better understanding of which player to control. Using this camera I was able to score quire a few gaols and win quite a few games, purely because I was able to close the spaces and clog the passing lanes better.
    I also decided to use full manual controls as even Level 1 assistance was too assisted and the passes were all to feet, whereas now I can pass into space. To compensate, I lowered the difficulty level to Professional. This combination seems to be working well for me right now. In my last game Napoli (me) vs. Roma (CPU), the stats were completely balanced, with a good number of shots on goals, interceptions and pass completion %. In a 20 minute game there were 10 shots each (5 on target each), with 280 passes made.
    Of course it's not all good. Counter attacks are still mostly frustrating. I can't understand why my forwards lack a sense of urgency and speed when I am on the break. They just jog and some of them even stay back.
    The other point of frustration is how sometimes the CPU will score a goal no matter how well I am positioned and no matter what I do. It's just a bit unrealistic to see that they get possession of the ball even though my defender is right there to intercept the ball.
    But overall a good patch, which makes this a better game for sure.
    All I can say is well done Konami, this game rivals MLB The SHow for sports game of the year in its ability to produce a realistic play and provide a fair challenge and fun.
    Sorry to ask this if the answer is known by most, but do I need to start a new ML or BAL to see the updates in terms of AI / gameplay?

    I’m so happy with this year’s game. Playing full manual, it’s just so organic. I have to play at least 12 min games because the build up play is so realistic and methodical, It’s hard to create chances playing 5-10 min games.

    You didn't man, you are kind of right. I felt the same yesterday.
    I made positive comments about how the game was fixed after the patch when i played it 3-4 games but in the long-run on the weekend I can safely say the game is better but not great, there are still problems:
    1-AI doesn't religiously go for wing organization and low crosses but they try it every single game no matter what.
    2-I can't understand how AI doesn't shoot from the cross angle 1 on 1 with the keeper but wait for late comer to turn around and play the low cross to him for a better goal. This thing only happen in very TOP teams and in very special teams like Spain National Team between 2008-2012 etc... The regular Brazilian team or Turkish team playing with inferior players are using the same strategy .... This is absurd.
    3-Low crosses sometimes are unpreventable, even if you are first to the ball, you press the button first as your defender, the attacker ignores your move, gets the first touch and goal.
    4-Defending is a frustration in this game. I really like Pes 2017 and 2018 a lot but defending makes me like this game less. You have to press less and wait for opponent to come to you in your halfway, otherwise your defenders will instantly lose position and AI will make you pay. It's like automatic cheat code.
    5-Long shots are not parried enough by goalkeepers, they hold on to the ball without bouncing it off. Hard shots just outside the area going to the corner are 95 % bounced off with saves by keepers, not held onto them in real football
    Last important note for players in ML:
    *I have 2 saves, one with 2nd year with Sao Paulo, the other one just 10 games into the season with Fenerbahce in Turkish League. I play the same formation, player ratings are about the same but I play much more fluid with Sao Paulo as CPU team-mates make clever runs offensively when you have the ball and CPU team-mates cover the ground much better defensively when opponent has the ball. So have patience. In ML, the game wants you to lose first, struggle and then become a good team if you can...

    yeah I agree with your post..
    the keepers having velcro on their hands and holding onto thunderbolts from outside the box is kinda annoying...
    and the main problem I have is defending too. my team AI is terrible.

    Other than that glitch, I'm liking the gameplay changes. I'm back to playing on Top Player and having it be a fun challenge.

    Go to international teams on edit mode and you can import all the correct players on there.Bit of a pain but you will get there in the end.
    I think I asked a similar question in a thread when the demo came out, but does anyone else have an issue occasionally in-game where the bottom 1/3 or so of the screen gets a little fuzzy/wavy?  It's like the radar and everything below it basically.
    It just happens every once in awhile for me, but I'm on PS4 Pro and I never have any issues with any other games, so it's hard for me to believe it's my console causing the problem.  Just curious, thanks in advance.
