Konami has launched an open beta for the new Pro Evolution Soccer game that will be using Unreal Engine 4, PES 2022. This Open Beta aims to test the game’s online functionalities, and does not represent the quality of the final product.
What this basically means is that the game’s graphics will not look great. So yeah, don’t expect this Open Beta to “wow” you. From what we saw, all camera angles, animations and scripts appear to be working in PES 2022. This is a huge step forward for this soccer game as it’s now using a different engine. Still, the game feels rough so my guess is that Konami is using this to test the game’s online performance and nothing more.
The Open Beta Test for Pro Evolution Soccer 2022 is currently available for PS5 and Xbox Series X. Now I don’t know whether Konami will pull a “FIFA” on us, and release the old-gen version on PC. Let’s just hope that this won’t be the case.
Enjoy the gameplay video and stay tuned for more!
