Konami has been all over the place at this year’s E3. using this time to give us more details about it’s upcoming games, Konami has recently given us more information on one of its newest titles, Pro Evolution Soccer 2013.
The new game features stunning recreations of the biggest names in soccer by mimicking the way they run, move and display their skills. Fifty of the world’s greatest players have been studied and brought to vivid life in PES 2013, and are instantly noticeable in the way they play on screen.
Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., had this to say:
“Soccer is all about how the player interacts with the ball, from the first touch, to dribbling, passing and all of the moves associated with playing. What PES 2013 is giving players is complete control to impact their game how they’d like, including all of those key elements I just referred to. Recreating that experience of an authentic soccer game and giving that freedom back to the players is paramount in the development of PES 2013.”
PES 2013 is built around three core elements: PES FC (FullControl), Player ID, and ProActive AI. PES FC provides the total freedom of movement, and incorporates all new dynamic first touch where players can choose how to receive or move on the ball and fully manual passing and shooting.
PES 2013’s goalkeepers represent a massive advance, with all new animations and AI that helps them anticipate dangers and act accordingly. The new intelligence and AI falls under the Player ID banner, which ensures the world’s greatest players behave like their real-world counterparts. The best players from around the globe, including cover star Cristiano Ronaldo, Brazilian sensation Neymar and the legendary Kaka have been copied down to the slightest level – including their most famous celebrations.
With players behaving individually, ProActive AI ensures the whole game ebbs and flows like a real match. The new AI routines ensure a more balanced match, with illogicalities of previous PES titles eradicated, and with better organization of the teams who backtrack and break, while maintaining a strong defensive line. Teams also react quicker to a lost possession, tying into the aforementioned defensive improvements and tackling system.
PES 2013 is also an incredibly deep game, and many of its options have been enhanced to exploit these key additions to the gameplay.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 will be available Fall 2012 on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation2, PSP, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Wii.
