Konami has released a new free update which adds some UEFA EURO 2016 content featuring new national team licenses, tournament branding, official tournament mode, official match ball and Stade de France. The latest update brings the latest licensed designs up to date which includes 15 of the new kits that will premiere during the UEFA EURO 2016 competition, including those of match officials.
Updated kits include hosts France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey, Iceland, Slovakia, Ukraine, Northern Ireland, Croatia, Albania, England, Portugal and Wales – the latter featuring Gareth Bale as the cover star for the UEFA EURO 2016 content.
Club kits across Europe and South America will be updated, from Udinese and Empoli in the Italian League, FC Groningen and Willem II in the Dutch Eredivisie, La Liga’s Espanyol and Eibar sides and 10 second-tier Liga Adelante sides. The new UEFA Champions League strips for FC Groningen, Marseilles, Sporting Lisbon, and AS Saint-Etienne will also be recreated; while 14 South American sides from the Brazilian and Argentinian sides will be updated, including Flamengo, Corinthians, and Union de Sante Fe.
The DLC also boasts an extensive update to the likenesses and current ratings of its roster. A whooping 199 new player faces have been produced to ensure near photo-realistic likenesses. Many of those are set to play pivotal parts within this summer’s UEFA EURO 2016 competition. As such, players such as cover star Gareth Bale, Dele Alli, Andriy Yarmolenko, İlkay Gündoğan and Juan Mata will boast the most detailed likenesses of any football game.
The developer also updates PES 2016’s player rankings on a weekly basis to mimic the form of its player roster to match that of real-life. Data Pack 3 will update the ratings of over 1400(!) players in both online and offline modes to reflect their overall mid-season performances. This level of detail ensures that PES 2016 and the UEFA EURO 2016 content will be as true to current form as possible.
This third update also adds new boot and ball styles to the main game. NIKE’s Hypervenom Phantom II and Hypervenom Phantom II NJR styles will be included, as will Puma’s evoSPEED SL, evoPOWER 1.3 and PARA Mexico Lite 15 HG JP designs. Additionally, the official balls of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA EURO 2016 tournaments will also be added.
Starting today and moving forward, all additional content will be available for free PES 2016 owners. The recently announced kits for England, France, Croatia, Turkey and Portugal will be released ahead of the UEFA EURO 2016 tournament which begins June 10th.
