Around the globe, the new football seasons have kicked off. Well, in certain parts they're probably halfway through but regardless, it's coming up to autumn and that means one thing - it's Pro Evolution Soccer time. Arriving on September 17th like clockwork, PES 2016 is the 20th anniversary off the classic football series.

Expect the usual raft of roster updates, as well as a host of new and improved features. This includes an overhauled Master League, night time lighting, triple the number of animations for players, greater team intelligence, and dynamic weather. Before your fork over that cash though, make sure you check out the official Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 system requirements to make sure your rig's up for a kick-about.  

Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista 32-bit SP2 
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 1.8 GHz or Athlon II X2 240 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 1GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 256MB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 7800 GS, AMD Radeon X1300 or Intel HD Graphics 3000
  • DX: DirectX 9.0c
  • HDD: 8 GB Free Hard Drive Space

Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 8 32-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-530 2.9 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 925 2.8 GHz
  • RAM: 2 GB System Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX, AMD Radeon X1300 XT or Intel HD Graphics 3000

As you can see, the system requirements for PES 2016 are extremely low. Right at the bottom end in fact. Almost any PC, whether a dedicated gaming rig or not, should be more than capable of playing this year's outing. In fact, these system requirements for Pro Evo 2016 are even slightly less than last year, so if you've played any version of PES in the last five or so years then you should be absolutely fine here.

Absolutely everything from memory to processor and graphics card is about as low end as you can get, so if you're picking up any sort of new PC nowadays, it will absolutely breeze through Pro Evolution 2016. 

What this means is that PES 2016 will look functionally identical to last ear's outing. Don't go expecting the photo-realistic facial scans and realistic turf of the console versions, because this is going to be really pared down. Konami pitches it as in between the previous gen and current generation of consoles.

One look at these system requirements should be enough to set off alarm bells in your head. Konami might be pulling out all the stops with the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain PC port, but it's rolling out anything but the red carpet for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016. It was annoying last year when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions of PES 2015 were on the next-gen FOX Engine and the PC version was stuck on the old one, but for the same to happen a full year later is almost unforgivable.

Remember, you can always check out how well your PC can run the PES 2016 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarking and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 GPU benchmark chart. 

What do you think of these extremely low  system requirements for PES 2016? Do you think PC gamers are being treated as an afterthought yet again for this release? Let us know!

So, this once again won't be on par with the PS4 and XBox One versions in terms of graphics. Thanks, Konami. Think I'm gonna go with FIFA this year...

My advice would be FIFA 16, this is just a roster update from the looks of it.

id say neither pes 16 will be horrible and fifa 15 was full of bugs an broken leagues missing managers ect ect n they never fixed any of it so id imagine 16 will pull similar crap, if u have to get one defo get fifa but tbh i couldnt recommend any of them with a clear conscience there both a ripoff

on pc the game engine was updated for 15 and 16 uses the same engine so yea fifa 16 is basically just a roster update from 15, agree with jon fifa is the one to get if u must but his comment is abit inaccurate and misleading tbf

just like to add im very anti fifa but it was covered here on game debate that female international teams will be included for the first time ever in 16, got to praise ea for that decision and game debate for informing people of this huge step towards equality :)

Abysmal. Can't believe they once again spit in the face of PC consumers and port the last-gen game for the second time in a row. And they'll blame us again for the low sales. lol

With every year this game goes more and more downhill, I just don't see any improvement! Years back, I use to love it, especially the my player mode, it was nice, but now it feels like this game is stuck in time, not wanting to evolve, sadly!
