Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 is out today on PC, Xbox and PlayStation 3, Konami’s latest attempt to regain the soccer sim crown from Electronic Art’s FIFA series.
PES 2014 is made in a new game engine, FOX, which gives you more realism and much better animations. It’s certainly impressive to play, although there are some compromises, like the lack of rain and licensing problems meaning many famous European stadiums are missing from the game.
Currently there is no PC demo, as Konami announced that last year hackers broke into the demo and revealed licenses that were supposed to be kept secret. That ruled out a PC demo before launch, but PES European Community Manager Adam Bhatti revealed on Twitter that a PC demo will be released ‘very soon after launch.’
OK PC gamers good news, PC demo will come very very soon after launch. The team understand users need to try before they buy. More info soon
