PES 2011 is “engineered for freedom”: first movie and screens

Tuesday, 4th May 2010 13:00 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Konami’s formally announced Pro Evolution Soccer 2011, with the firm promising “the most radical revamp” the series has ever undergone.

It’ll release this fall for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Nintendo Wii, PSP and PC.

Some of the new features include a new AI for defenders and reworked player animations. But its biggest feature will be the debut of an online version of the series’s popular Master League.

Official modes for the UEFA Champions League and Europa League also return, while Copa Liberadores – South America’s own version of the Champions League – is also included.

“It was time for PES to transform, and PES 2011 represents the most ambitious redesign in the series’ history,” said Jon Murphy, Pro Evo team leader in Europe.

“We’ve continued to work closely with the fans to pinpoint what it is about football that PES didn’t do. Total freedom was the priority and all-new animation a must. PES 2011 does both – indeed, they are directly linked to each other – and while the new game is recognizably PES at its heart, it is also the most radically improved version ever.”

Argentine Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi also returns to feature on the cover for the game.

The debut trailer and shots are below.

    I hope they deliver this time round. Didn’t buy last year’s version as i was disappointed with the lack of change. Hope they can stay true to their word this time.

    The accompanying text on the video is definitely a literal translation of the Winning Eleven version, as it doesn’t even make sense.

    Contextually, or figuratively, it’s nonsense.

    It’ll probably be gash for a couple of irritations yet

    I hope ‘radical revamp’ doesn’t mean motion controls

    Haha if radical revamp did mean motion controls then EA would be rubbing their hands together i reckon as i’m pretty sure most people share the view, Football + Motion Controls = Shitness for all

    Although i could imagine that if i had some sort of very padded floor then using Natal to control your keeper would be awesome lol
