PES 2018 offers more innovations than any other PES title of the past ten years; no part of the game has remained unchanged. At its core is the celebrated gameplay, where users have complete control over what is happening on the field - with players whose behavior, movements and reactions are identical to those of their counterparts in reality. New additions to the control system make the game even more dynamic. At the same time, access to the many tactical facets of PES 2018 is easier than ever with the help of a new user interface.

With simple movements of the control stick, tricks can be initiated to play defenders.

All standard situations have been completely revised, especially penalties or the execution of the kick-off by a single player.

At the same time, more than 20,000 individual components were realistically reproduced to depict lawns, tunnels and the stadium environments such as SIGNAL IDUNA PARK and Camp Nou.

Basic movements such as walking, turning and the posture of the players have also been completely redesigned, as have the player models. Especially the jerseys and the way they adapt to the different body shapes of the players are now even more varied. Thanks to KONAMI's agreements with partner clubs, tattoos of their players are reproduced in detail.…more
