Usain Bolt To Appear In PES 2018

I’ve played a lot of PES this past football season, and I’m sure I’ll be doing a lot more of that next season. PES 2018 was shown at E3, and so far it looks like you would expect. It looks even more polished than last year’s outing, and I think it will please players that pick it up.

Konami have repeatedly gone on record that they are finally bringing the PC version up to the standards that we have come to expect on the consoles. This should mean that the XBOX ONE, PS4, and PC versions should all be relatively the same. The only differences I assume they would have are better contrast and loading times depending on the platform you’re playing it on.

The publisher stated that no part of the experience was untouched. The gameplay is set to add more control on the field, players movements and reactions have been enhanced, and the interface has been upgraded to give us a much closer representation to what we are accustom to when we watch the matches on the weekend.

A new REAL Capture system also provides PES 2018 with true-to-life lighting across day and night games, while over 20,000 components have been faithfully recreated to recreate the turf, tunnels, and the surrounding areas of stadia such as Camp Nou and Signal Iduna Park. My hope is that we get more grounds, even if they’re fictional ones.

“PES fans will know that, historically, the legendary Babangida is the fastest player in the game – but not anymore more!” commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director Brand & Business Development at Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. “We are delighted that a legendary athlete and committed football fan such as Usain Bolt has agreed to become an Ambassador for the PES series, exclusively. Those who pre-order now will be able to add the fastest man in the World to their myClub team. Usain’s enthusiasm and willingness to help with his inclusion in the game have been fantastic, and we look forward to those pre-ordering the game unleashing his pace on unsuspecting defences when PES 2018 is released on September 12th in the Americas, and 14th globally.”

“I love football and have played PES for as long as I can remember – it’s the best football game there is – and it’s a great honor to be a part of it and its success,” added Usain Bolt. “When the opportunity arose to be a player in PES 2018, it was too good to be true. Having my face and movements scanned for use in the game was a fascinating process and I hope those who pre-order the game make full use of my pace and skill!”

Oh, and I almost forgot. How could I…! Usain Bolt will be added to PES 2018 as a new myClub player. the current World Champion in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay events will be available to players that pre-order the game. KONAMI has used its proprietary face-scanning systems to perfectly recreate the athlete in-game, while his running style and – more importantly! –incredible pace will make him an asset to any side.

PES 2018 launches on September 12th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. There will also be a  PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version of the game which we can consider a legacy version.
