PES 2013 F.A.Q.
Our fans asked, we answered!
After carefully reviewing all our fan’s comments on Facebook for the past months, we have come up with the most frequently asked questions and answered them as best we can!
Q: What is the official release date?
A: We still do not have an official date yet, but rest assured that good news are coming soon, so keep an eye on our website and our official Facebook page!
Q: Which leagues and teams have we officially licensed?
A: Over 150 European teams will be featured in the upcoming release of PES 2013, in addition to all the clubs of the Spanish Liga BBVA , the Italian top division and top class clubs such as Manchester United, Bayern Munich and FC Porto. Furthermore, since last year’s game, not only will the “Copa Santander Libertadores” be present, but also 20 Brazilian clubs have been added. They are coming with updated kits and some of the Brazilian stadiums too.
Q: Has the Goalkeeper and defence AI been improved?
A: Working on PES 2013 meant focusing primarily on what our fans were more concerned about in the past edition: goalkeeping movements and AI. After the release of PES 2012, we have worked to develop a new algorithm from scratch to improve the behaviour of the players on the field, establishing ProActive AI and Player ID, along with the new control system FullControl. This comes with full reworks on passing and shooting, a new balance between offensive and defensive actions, a better blocking system for defensive situations, which offers players a new and improved football simulator.
Q: Will the game include fully updated kits?
A: Licensed teams will come with updated kits at launch, and more will be implemented on our first patch.
Q: Has the referee AI been improved?
A: Referee’s calls have been improved, with a special focus on offside decisions to adapt to the new Proactive AI system.
Q: How are you going to tackle the Online issues?
A: We are introducing a new system to resolve online cheating, no specific details can be given on this new system, however the changes will be noticeable.
Q: Will PES 2013 be available on PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable?
A: Yes! For another year, PES 2013 will be available on both platforms.
