Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 – PC demo releases on August 30th [UPDATE: Perhaps not]

Konami has announced that a PC demo for Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 will be released on August 30th. The demo version will include twelve teams (eight club and four national teams), two stadiums, as well as two game modes.

As we’ve already stated, the PC version of PES 2018 will be identical to the current-gen console version. As such, the PC demo will include the new multiplayer mode CO-OP, as well as an exhibition mode.

Going into more details, the teams and stadiums that will be included are:

Included Clubs

  • Borussia Dortmund
  • Liverpool FC
  • CR Flamengo
  • Club Atl├ętico River Plate
  • Argentina
Included Stadium

  • Camp Nou
  • Signal Iduna Park

Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 is powered by the FOX Engine and is currently scheduled for a September 12th release!


A closer look at Konami’s news reveals that this demo may not be released on the PC. While Konami does mention the PC for the game’s Co-Op mode, it looks like the company is hinting at the final version and not at the demo. If that’s the case, Konami should not include the PC platform as this news is for the demo and not for the full version. Moreover, the PC/Steam logo is missing from the demo image.
