PES 2016 Pro Evolution Soccer

The upcoming UEFA EURO 2016 DLC will be free for all users who already own a copy of Pro Evolution Soccer, says football and alliance Director Erik Bladinieres.

“It has been a difficult few months for the fans, with a lot of confidence lost in how we have been delivering content in our recent Data Packs, with some items missing that our consumers expected,” said Bladinieres.The PES Production team appreciate their fans’ support and want to put things right. The team want to reward their support and bring back confidence in the Data Pack releases. With this announcement we hope we can regain their trust.”

Back in October, players downloading PES 2016’s Data Pack 1 encountered problems with the team roster data not being entirely up-to-date.

“The roster issue is a priority for us to correct ASAP, but will take some weeks unfortunately,” the PES team wrote at the time. “We had planned a second Data Pack for end of November which was set to include a new stadium for PS4 and Xbox One, the Maracana. However, we will not release this Data Pack without including a fix for the offline roster issue.”

They also promised to use the extra time to add more kits and boots to the game, and other content if time allowed.

Now Data Pack 2 is scheduled for a December release, with added player faces, kits, and of course the updated transfers as well as the world-famous Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Details about the UEFA Euro 2016 DLC will be revealed early next year.

UEFA stands for the Union of European Football Associations. 2016’s UEFA Finals will be held in France from June 10 to July 10. Recently, PES 2016 was featured in gaming tournaments during Paris Games Week.

IGN said that PES 2016 may be one of the greatest soccer (okay, football) games ever made. You can read that review right here. PES 2016 is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
