Konami has announced that it will be going on tour with eFootball PES 2020 at four locations in England and Scotland, giving people the opportunity to get hands-on with the demo. You can currently download the demo if you don’t fancy trekking out to play the game ahead of its launch next month. The PES Tour bus will be stopping at the following locations.
- Westfields Sheperd’s Bush, London – August 17th-18th
- NEC, Birmingham – August 23rd-26th
- intu Braehead, Glasgow – August 31st – September 1st
- intu Trafford Centre, Manchester – September 7th – 8th
On this tour Konami wants to give as many new people as possible some hands-on experience with the eFootball PES 2020. Those who have been playing for a while are also encouraged to visit as mini-tournaments of the game will also be held. Recently Konami explained the reasoning behind the name change of the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise stating:
The full product name moving forward will be eFootball: PES. For this year we’ve announced eFootball PES 2020. We want to put a bigger focus on esports moving forward. In the past we’ve already shown [this] by having competitions such as PES League and eFootball Pro, the professional club competition. Moving forward, there will be bigger esports competitions coming up. We simply thought that by including it in the product naming, we’re making a statement and showing our community of fans, but also the wider audience, that esports will play a very big part moving forward.
Konami managed to get a bit of a steal this year for eFootball PES 2020 by gaining the rights to Juventus, which meant FIFA had to change the name of the team in FIFA 20 to Piemonte Calcio. eFootball PES 2020 will be released on September 10th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
