Borussia Dortmund’s stunning Signal Iduna Park ground will also be perfectly recreated for use in the game, will both licensed teams will have squad likenesses recreated, bringing the club stars to life.

Both the PES 2017 October and November updates will also add more official iconography and official boot styles to the main game, with kit additions and various bug fixes.
