When playing the phenomenally successful Football Manager series, we still can’t help but bemoan the inability to actually play football. Likewise, while playing PES or FIFA we can’t help but turn our noses up at the comparatively rudimentary management systems. What if one game were to combine it all into a glorious? Well, Konami’s taking a step closer to this dream with the new and improved Master League mode in eFootball PES 2020.
Another year, another Pro Evolution Soccer. This time though, Konami's gone and completely changed the name. Say hello to eFootball PES 2020, the only ball kicking simulator which manages to squeeze both football and soccer into the same title. eFootball PES 2020 brings all the goodies of the upcoming season such as update rosters, additional skill techniques, and a revamped master league mode. But what sort of PC will you need to run PES 2020? Let's find out.
UPDATE: The eFootball PES 2020 PC demo is out right now and is available to download through Steam. This provides the first opportunity to get hands-on with Konami's latest punt at competing with FIFA. Suffice to say, if you're unsure how well PES 2020 is going to run on your PC ahead of its September launch, this is now your best chance to see how it performs on your rig.
In case you missed it, Pro Evolution Soccer is now calling itself eFootball PES 2020 for this year's release. Konami have signed up Manchester United to appear in all its new season glory, but unfortunately the Liverpool (who you may have noticed won the European Championship this year) contract was ended. This Konami-Liverpool contract came to its natural end on Sunday 30th June.
Like clockwork, Pro Evolution Soccer is back for another outing in 2019. Or is it? Konami has rebranded the series. Wave goodbye to Pro Evo, say hello to eFootball PES 2020. Quite the mouthful.
