PES UEFA 2016 Out As Retail Game In March, And As Free DLC For PES 2016

Good news for owners of PES 2016 as Konami have announced that the UEFA EURO 2016 content will be added for free as DLC. As I’m sure you aware I know nothing about football, so here is a cut and paste from the press release to explain what is going on.

The UEFA EURO 2016 mode will feature full iconography and presentation elements from this year’s tournament, and also includes the Stade de France stadium, which hosts the final in July. From the 24 qualified teams that feature real players with hundreds of authentic player faces, 15 fully licensed teams will be included with the latest strips for England, Wales, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Northern Ireland and hosts France, all perfectly recreated.

All squads will also be in line with those of the qualifying nations with the various playing styles perfectly replicated via the game’s innovative Player ID and Team ID systems, which mimic the exact playing styles of both individual players and the team as a whole.

There will also be a special boxed version of PES UEFA EURO 2016 which will also include normal PES, plus “exclusive myClub rewards, including access to a special Ambassador Agent, seven special Euro agents giving them seven players representing the 24 qualified teams, and 10,000GP each week for 10 weeks.”


Fifteen out the twenty-four teams competing have been licensed, but Ireland, Russia, Switzerland, Romania, Sweden, Poland, Austria, Belgium and Hungary will be represented unofficially.

Seven months ago when Konami announced they had the EUFA license they stated it would not be part of PES 2016.

  1. Now that is how you do it. Well done Konami.

  2. Shame about there only being 15 of the 24 teams but let’s be honest, if you like Pro Evo (the better of this years standard two by a country mile in my opinion) you won’t be overly fussed about this.

    The real travesty here is that Scotland aren’t making it to the finals!
