• NEW DRIBBING TECHNIQUE: FINESSE DRIBBLE – New in eFootball PES 2020, Finesse Dribble is an advanced technique that will allow you to snake between defenders with exceptional agility. Developed in close consultation with world renowned midfielder, Andrés Iniesta, Finesse Dribble empowers players with an affinity for technical flair to use superior technique and special awareness to outfox the opposition
• UPGRADED TRAPPING MECHANICS – Trapping a football is something of an art and each player has his own unique approach to taking command of the ball. eFootball PES 2020 presents huge improvements to the way that trapping works in-game. Players will now exhibit enhanced intelligence when interacting with an approaching ball, choosing a trapping technique that is not only representative of their personal playstyle, but also one that suits the match situation. A handful of new trapping skills will also be available; including No Touch Control, which enables you run beside an incoming ball without making contact; and the Trick Trap, a skill that allows you to feint a trap in one direction before deftly veering to the other to beat an opponent
• CONTEXT-SENSITIVE KICK ACCURACY – A greater level of realism has been added to the pitch this season with enhanced context-sensitivity for kicking. This means that the accuracy of each shot and pass you unleash will change relative to how you’re positioned on the pitch, making for a deeper and more authentic football experience
• AUTHENTIC DEFENSIVE BEHAVIOUR – Significant improvements have been made to accurately recreate every tense moment of play that occurs around the box when defenders clamber to shut down a well-executed attack. These improvements include additional sliding tackle animations, more realistic animation when clearing the ball with your head, as well as the option to perform an Intentional Foul as a last-ditch effort to save an otherwise hopeless situation
• IMPROVED BALL PHYSICS – First-touch interactions will now be rendered with far greater realism, allowing shrewd players to better anticipate the path of the ball. Technically-minded football fans will also be able to take advantage of a finely-tuned ball control system that will allow them to manipulate the ball with various parts of their feet and control it with a greater level of dexterity
• ADAPTIVE PLAYER INTERACTION: INSPIRE – Not only will each player’s individual playstyle affect the way he interacts with the ball, but it will also have a significant impact on the behavior of the players around him. For example, when a player renowned for his dribbling ability takes possession of the ball, his teammates will spread out to give him adequate space to make a penetrating run. Similarly, when a known playmaker is on the ball, his teammates will position more aggressively to take advantage of his prodigious passing ability
• PLAY LIKE RONALDINHO – Renowned the world over as one of the sport’s most entertaining players, Ronaldinho’s unique style of football is coming to eFootball PES 2020 in a big way. The introduction of several new Ronaldinho-inspired animation sets means that you’ll finally be able to move like the man himself, using unparalleled technical flair and fluid movement to beat defenders with impunity. You’ll also be able to use some of his showboat first-touch techniques, including chest control and back control

• MORE REALISTIC TRANSFERS – The transfer market will now use a brand-new algorithm built on a rich library of real-world football data to ensure that transfers, transfer fees, salaries and various other elements are in close alignment with reality. The new transfer system will be more customizable than previous years, with the ability to configure how often transfers occur, how difficult negotiations will be, how often your players are played and whether they can transfer in their first year at your club
• IMPROVED MANAGER MODELS – eFootball PES 2020 offers you a greater variety of Manager models to choose from thanks to the use of high performance 3D scanning technology to capture images of individuals of varying body shapes and sizes.
