UPDATE: The eFootball PES 2020 PC demo is out right now and is available to download through Steam.

Suffice to say, if you're unsure how well PES 2020 is going to run on your PC ahead of its September launch, this is now your best chance to see how it performs on your rig.

It sounds as if it's a fairly feature-packed demo as well, cramming in 14 license teams including  FC Barcelona, Arsenal FC, Palmeiras, Flamengo, Sao Paulo, Sport Club Corinthians Paulista, Vasco da Gama, Boca Juniors, River Plate, Universidad de Chile and Colo-Colo. There's Quick Play, Co-op, and Edit Mode so players can create  their own kits and edit teams ahead of launch.

The eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 can be found on Steam right over here, while the full game is out at some point in September. Steam has changed where it shows the demo download link though. You can now find it in the right-hand column, just above the list of features. It's around a 4.1 GB download and needs 5.2 GB hard drive space to install.

Konami has taken Pro Evolution Soccer down the deed poll office for a name change, rebranding it the tongue-garbling eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2020. Yes, Konami has somehow managed to squeeze both football and soccer into the same game name, successfully winding up both sides of the great football/soccer divide.

The most important team is included, Arsenal, as well as 13 others, comprising Palmeiras, Flamengo, Sao Paulo, Boca Juniors, River Plate, Colo-Colo, three unannounced teams, and the dregs like Barcelona.
