Football fans will be thrilled with the brand new gaming experience delivered by Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH in the form of PES 2013. The game was created for Playstation 3 and brings a totally new level of immersion and entertainment to one of the group’s longest running series in a complete new package.
Players are drawn to PES games for their realism and control features, but PES 2013 brings a whole new meaning to these concepts. The new game gives the series a shake up with a host of new features, including more control options, game play additions and superb animations to make for a football experience that as close to the real thing as possible.
Total freedom is ensured through the introduction of a new power bar for each player to use so that strength and pass and shot placement can be customized. Balls are spread absolutely precisely, including long balls, short passes and one-twos – so that players can always be on top of the play and tempo.
The team leader for European PEAS at Konami Digitial Entertainment, Jon Murphy spoke about the latest updates of the company’s most popular series and said: “It was time for PES to transform, and PES 2013 represents the most ambitious redesign in the series’ history.
“We’ve continued to work closely with the fans to pinpoint what it is about football that PES didn’t do,” he said. “Total freedom was the priority and all-new animation a must. PES 2013 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.”
New AI routines in PES 2013 allow players to dictate every move and decision they make on the field. The new game has done away with AI intervention, and passes do not automatically reach the nearest player - leaving the decisions to the player’s intuition and skills and making for absolute control at all levels.
The success of PES 2013 lies in the complete revamp of its control system that puts the wheel in the player’s hand at every level as well. The new game presents higher levels of challenge, with skills such as dribbling and close control on the field a must to master if players want to advance in the game.
The software group has worked hard to maintain the original features of what makes PES so popular – realism and skill – but has revamped much of the game to create one of the best offerings seen today. Some of the more dominant new features and changes that represent PES 2013 are as follows:
Jon Murphy of Kunami Digital Entertainment said that these features listed above were “just the tip of the iceberg for PES 2013.” He promised that there are still significant announcements to come regarding the game’s modes and gameplay functions.
“The first footage of the new game perfectly showcases the new animation and freedom elements that beat at the heart of the new game,” said Murphy enthusiastically. “We are confident that PES 2013 will both surprise and delight football fans. They are going to have to relearn how they play, as this is a very different game, but I am confident it will blow them all away.”
