New Data Pack for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 Coming December 3

Posted by | News, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

Konami announced that Data Pack 2 for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 will be released on December 3. The update will correct errors in team rosters, taking into account summer player transfers that never went into effect in the offline mode of the game. (Datapack 1 also did not address the issue.)

Data Pack 2 will also add new content; the Maracanã Stadium in Brazil, team kits for Germany, Italy, and Spain’s national teams,  51 more players including Fernando Torres, Aleksandar Mitrović, and Kevin De Bruyne, and finally two new balls and eight new pairs of shoes are all new additions to PES 2016.

The game’s lobby will also be updated to facilitate players starting matches with their friends.

Konami has warned that the update may erase edit data if you have made changes to the soccer players’ faces, hairstyle, or physique. The Data Pack will also be removing players who have become free agents, such as Xavi, Steven Gerrard, and Frank Lampard.

If you already have PES 2016, you’ll be rewarded with free DLC in the future, to make up for the failure to launch with updated rosters. The UEFA Euro 2016 DLC, which comes out in summer of 2016, will be free.

Also coming up in December is a free-to-play version of PES 2016, with seven teams which you can play in Exhibition Mode or in Training. It also includes myClub, which lets you act as manager of your team.

PES 2016 is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC.

And when I encounter gaming parents online, at a convention, or just out and about, they are usually excited to share what games they’ve been able to teach their kids. Sometimes these are game series that parents have grown up with themselves. Sometimes parents are learning the game along with their kids. Read More
