PES 2021: Data Pack 4.0 - Release Date, What to Expect, Updates & more

PES 2021 has been a huge success so far.

Despite being a seaosnal update rather than a new title in itself, Konami have set the foundations for a huge 2021, with PES 2022 looking to be the best yet!

But what can we expect from the next big update for the current title? Let's find out!

PES 2021 Data Pack 4.0

The Data Pack updates provide players with key changes to the title, with the post January transfer window update one of the biggest in the PES calander.

Here is everything that you need to know.

Release Date

We haven't got a confirmed release date for the Data Pack 4.0 as of yet, but working off past titles, we can give you a fair estimate.

We know that we won't see the Data Pack implemented until the close of the January transfer window, so we can write of a release this month.

We imagine that the PES 2021 Data Pack 4.0 will be released on or around Friday, February 11.

What to Expect

There will be plenty of changes made to the title, this is what we imagine Konami will add.


The main area of concern is of course the players that switch clubs this month.

All of the January transfers will be dealt with in this update, including Manchester United's new man, Amad Diallo.

There's little more to report on the way of transfers so far this month, but we're sure things will heat up as the month progresses.

Player Appearance

The second area that will be dealt with is any changes that need to be made to the way the players appear on the pitch.

There will be some virtual haircuts for those that have made changes in real life, in a similar fashion to the Cristiano Ronaldo update we saw in Data Pack 2.0

It is also likely that we see some new boots added to the game in keeping with the ever changing fashion on the pitch!


PES have been working tirelessly at getting new licences added into their title, so we can certainly expect to see one or two new licences added to the game come February.

What those licences will be remains to be seen, but we're pretty sure we'll hear some news from Konami over the coming weeks!
