Konami welcomed members of the PES community and journalists for a presentation of PES 2014 on July 4th and 5th, and as you may have guessed, some new details about this new soccer title were revealed during that event. Thankfully, our reader ‘Satsaritza’ – a member who attended the show – has sent us some key features that were discussed.
According to Konami, PES 2014 will hit Steam on launch, as well as other digital distributors. The game will come with a new stat system, using a combined stat page to equate values.
