Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 has been announced by Konami and will be released for the Xbox 360, PS3, Windows PC and PSP later this year. One of the most interesting details accompanying included in the announcement of the game was that it would switch to a new game engine this year called the Fox Engine. This particular engine powers Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain among others.
Other new improvements to the game include “TrueBall Tech” which is being described as a system addressing physics and controls that focus on the ball. The Motion Animation System (M.A.S.S.) is intended to create more realistic player collision and tackles, with another addition being that players now have mental statistics that can be affected by things such as vocal fan support or teammate encouragement. The full (and really detailed list of new features can be found here).
With regards to which system the game would not be appearing on, PES community manager Adam Bhatti did confirm that the game would not be releasing on Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PS Vita or 3DS which is a blow for those systems (more so Wii U) but hopefully they will see some of the beautiful game at some point.
It will be interesting to see if PES 2014 can better FIFA 14 in the yearly battle between the two series’ but all we can do for now is wait and see what other information is revealed in the run-up to launch so stick to ZKG for all the latest info.
