It’s been an up and down weekend for PES 2019 fans, Konami revealed that Borussia Dortmund have ended their agreement early and will no longer appear in the game. Konami were quick to react however, signing up FC Schalke 04 instead.
In short this means that PES 2019 will includes Schalke’s official kits as well as their home stadium, the VELTINS-Arena.Much like they have done with Barcelona you can see Schalke’s charcoal grey tunnel from where the players emerge onto the pitch, while the stadium has been fully 3D scanned too.
Konami have announced that one of their famous data pack updates will come to PES 2014 later this month. The new data pack updates the rosters to reflect the summer transfers in the football world. As well as adding at least 800 new player likenesses along with some new boots. The likenesses come as a pleasant surprise as it was a gripe that we mentioned in our review. Data Pack 2 will be available to download for free later on this month.
Konami Digital Entertainment today announced an agreement with the Asociación Nacional de Fútbol Profesional (ANFP) to bring 18 Primera División teams to Pro Evolution Soccer 2014. KONAMI has also enlisted the talents of national football announcers Fernando Solabarrieta and Patricio (“Pato”) Yáñez, to call the action in each game. Some of the premier teams that will be included are Colo-Colo, Universidad de Chile, Universidad Católica, Cobreloa, and Unión Española.
For the next chapter in the Pro Evolution series, we have been working hard to secure licensing that will excite our fans. Even though the sport is globally celebrated; we understand how important it is for fans to be able to interact with their beloved hometown teams and players.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 centers everything on the ball including how it moves and how players use it. First touch and sublime control are what set certain players apart from others. The ability to not only read a pass, but to be one step ahead and to know what is needed to gain yards on an encroaching defender. Trueball Tech allows the player to trap or knock on a pass using the analogue stick with detailed bar-centric physics determining the weight shift of the player and the height and speed of the pass, as to how the player’s body will automatically shape to receive it. The Pro Evolution Soccer series has long since treated the ball as an individual entity, allowing the player huge amounts of freedom to pass into space, run on to a knocked-on counter, or produces short triangular passes to make space. Trueball Tech adds even more freedom, with full 360-degree control within several yards around the player and the ability to shield the ball from opposing players, use deft controls to wrong-foot them, and intuitive methods to master close control.
