PES 2020: Messi, Ronaldinho, Iniesta. Gameplay review


PES have renewed their contract with Barcelona.  But Lionel Messi is not the only Barcelona legend involved, with Ronaldinho featuring on the cover for the Legends Edition of the game and Andres Iniesta contributing as an official Gameplay Advisor.

According to realsport101, enlisting the expertise of legendary midfielder Andres Iniesta has shaped the latest instalment with a renewed focus on immersion and authenticity, translating his innate ability to read the space around him and slip through the tiniest cracks of an impregnable defensive line into a new dynamic dribbling technique; the finesse dribble.

Ronaldinho’s unique style of football is also coming to PES 2020, featuring animation sets that allow players to move like the man himself, using unparalleled technical flair and fluid movement to beat defenders, together with showboat first-touch techniques such as chest and back control.

Other components that have been announced include new first touch techniques, upgraded trapping mechanics, context-sensitive free kick accuracy, improved ball physics as well as new skills & abilities. There are also new ways to defend, including the intentional foul and an adaptive player interaction system that recreates player personalities on the pitch.

PES 2020 will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC steam on September 10, 2019.

Messi will feature as the cover star for the Standard Edition, priced £59.99, exclusive Legend Edition will feature Brazilian icon Ronaldinho for £79.99.
