There is a massive divide in the football gaming world with hardcore FIFA and PES fans. While many love the arcade feel of FIFA, PES fans will always point out that Konami’s game is the more realistic version of the beautiful game.
There has been one major problem with the PES series over the years and that is the lack of licensed clubs. There were years when we had to play as Merseyside Red with a rather weird badge, simply because the developers couldn’t negotiate with us.
That has certainly changed over the years and with the Japanese company tying up a deal with Liverpool, we will get a great experience once we select our beloved team.
Konami released a trailer of the new PES 2018 game and it does look amazing. While Barcelona are the club who feature heavily in the trailer, we do have our own presence shown.
From the Anfield tunnel to the players walking out on the pitch, there is an extra sense of realism in the video. Also, there would be a “Gegenpressing” style of play that you can apply to your team, ensuring that you become Jurgen Klopp and tinker with your side.
The video also features a number of our players strutting their stuff. Adam Lallana and his close control of the ball is a joy to watch while we can also see two amazing goals that were scored by our Brazilian stars.
Philippe Coutinho’s goal against Everton in the Merseyside derby has been recreated and so is Roberto Firmino’s brilliant finish against Stoke City.
The game has also managed to capture the celebrations of the players too, such as Bobby turning into a sharp shooter and Coutinho jumping in the air after scoring a goal.
Our brilliant new jersey is also on display as we get a glimpse of James Milner coming out from the tunnel with Joel Matip. We also get to hear the famous YNWA chant that makes the game hard to resist.
A big battle is on the way between FIFA and PES fans. But at least we will be covered well in both the games.
