PES 2020 will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC Steam on September 10, 2019 (Americas/Europe) / September 12th (Asia). Lionel Messi will feature as the cover star for the standard edition, priced at £59.99, and players can also get their hands on the digital exclusive Legend Edition, featuring Brazilian icon Ronaldinho for £79.99.
Other bonuses of the Legend Edition include an exclusive 3D-scanned 2019 version of Ronaldinho and Messi on a 10-match loan for myClub. Everyone who pre-orders either digital edition of the game will get Andres Iniesta and 1,000 myClub coins on top.
Lionel Messi said: "I am very happy to be on the cover of eFootball PES 2020. Since I was a little kid, I have always looked forward to seeing who was going to be on the cover. Now my son plays the game, and I have to say that he’s very excited that it’s going to be me. He’s even asked me several times why I was not on it, so I’m really happy now that I am."
Enlisting the expertise of legendary midfielder Andres Iniesta has shaped the latest instalment with a renewed focus on immersion and authenticity, translating his innate ability to read the space around him and slip through the tiniest cracks of an otherwise impregnable defensive line into a new dynamic dribbling technique; the finesse dribble.
Renowned as one of football’s most entertaining players, Ronaldinho’s unique style of football is also coming to PES 2020, featuring animation sets that allow players to move like the man himself, using unparalleled technical flair and fluid movement to beat defenders, together with showboat first-touch techniques such as chest and back control.
