The PES 2020 demo will feature Quick Play and Co-op mode as well as an Edit Mode where players will be able to create their kits and teams.

There will be 14 teams in the PES 2020 demo. These include:

  • Barcelona

  • Palmeiras
  • Flamengo
  • Sao Paulo
  • Corinthians
  • Vasco da Gama
  • Boca Juniors
  • River Plate
  • Universidad de Chile
  • Colo-Colo
  • Plus three other teams to be confirmed

Expect Manchester United to be one of three additional teams, after partnering with Konami for the first time in three years.

Konami has gone back to the drawing board with PES 2020, bringing in a host of gameplay changes and a revamped Master League.

They've even gone so far as to get Barca legend Andrés Iniesta involved, who has helped shape the new dynamic dribbling skills, first touch techniques and finely-tuned ball physics.

As for Master League, there's an all-new interactive dialogue system, not to mention a more realistic transfer market and overhauled menu design.

Last year, you had the choice of two stadiums in PES demo:

  • Camp Nou
  • Veltins-Arena

We are almost certain the stadiums will remain the same in the PES 2020 demo – especially the Nou Camp.
