“What PES 2013 is giving players is complete control to impact their game how they’d like, including all of those key elements I just referred to. Recreating that experience of an authentic soccer game and giving that freedom back to the players is paramount in the development of PES 2013.”
So what else is new? Try this on for size:
PES FC (FullControl)
- PES FC provides the total freedom of movement, and incorporates all new dynamic first touch where players can choose how to receive or move on the ball and fully manual passing and shooting.
- Close control and dribbling is also enhanced with the game’s pace to mirror a real soccer match. Using the R2/RT button gives the player access to a number of control styles. Balls can be cushioned, pushed forward or shielded as the players around you make intelligent runs into space
- PES 2013′s new intelligence and AI falls under the Player ID banner, which ensures the world’s greatest players behave like their real-world counterparts.
- The best players from around the globe, including cover star Cristiano Ronaldo, Brazilian sensation Neymar and the legendary Kaka have been copied down to the slightest level – including their most famous celebrations.
- With players behaving individually, ProActive AI ensures the whole game ebbs and flows like a real match. The new AI routines ensure a more balanced match, with illogicalities of previous PES titles eradicated, and with better organization of the teams who backtrack and break, while maintaining a strong defensive line.
- Teams also react quicker to a lost possession, tying into the aforementioned defensive improvements and tackling system.
- The training sessions are a popular part of the PES series, and are vital to mastering the new level of total control. A series of walk-thru guides will ease the player into the intricacies of quick passes and manual shooting.
- Training sessions also allow the player to refine the control over secondary players via the improved off-the-ball control, and the deft footwork of lobbing a goalkeeper.
- Introduced in PES 2012, Football Life is an umbrella term for the series’ popular Master League and Become a Legend Mode and features a variety of changes and additions in PES 2013.
- In the new game players will find new ways to bolster team performance by earning money to add special coaches to work on the team’s weaknesses, while transfers are more open with clearer reasons as to why negotiations are stalling. In the Become a Legend mode players are given feedback on how they need to improve to break into the squad.
Master League Online
- Master League Online will introduce a new ranking system called Rival Ranking which sources players at a similar level. The community side of the game will be split into 240 cities across the globe, and will show when local players are online.
- Leagues can be created, and messages and challenges sent. The series’ myPES synchronization with Facebook also returns, and will go into more detail.
- Match reports covering pass success rates, possession, etc, will be detailed, as will each user’s top scorers, runs of results and scoring patterns. These can then be posted on the user’s Facebook wall for bragging rights.
