Konami has confirmed the rumours we heard earlier this year and announced Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 will be getting a free-to-play version. PES 2016 F2P edition kicks off on December 8th, and provides a limited version of the full boxed title. Which sounds suspiciously like a thing we used to call a 'demo'. Players will have access to seven of the biggest teams in the world for Exhibition Mode, the full Training section, and, the big sell, the entire myClub mode.
myClub is PES 2016’s version of FIFA’s Ultimate Team, and allows you to buy packs of players and build a winning team up from scratch. For many this mode is the main draw of football games these days, so it’s nice to see a way to skip picking up a retail copy. Playable both online and offline, you can play matches to earn an in-game currency or pay for micro-transactions to build a world-beating team. [More]
