Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced that it will integrate a dedicated element within PES 2017, giving players access to the PES League eSports competition.

The competition will now be easier for all PES users to access. For the first time in the series’ history, PES 2017 will feature a dedicated mode that will allow users to partake in Official PES League matches.

“As the PES series continues to go from strength to strength, we are exploring a number of ways to build its reputation within the eSports sector,” said Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director of Brand and Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “Later this year we will be integrating the hugely popular PES League element as a dedicated mode within PES 2017 and future iterations, allowing organised competitions to become easily accessible to absolutely anyone owning a PES title.”

PES 2017 will be released on September 13th/15th. The new game is founded upon the ‘Control Reality’ ethos, elevating the series’ award-winning gameplay to a new level through incredible new control elements and a new standard of visual realism, without sacrificing what made PES successful in the first place: playing a match with your friends. The industry-leading Fox Engine is again central to elevating the series to new heights, with KONAMI focusing on first touch, the making and receiving of passes, and adaptive AI to elevate the game’s acclaimed realism.
