No PES 2021 Demo

Unsurprisingly, Konami will not be releasing a demo ahead of PES 2021. Instead it will arrive in the form of a Season Update.

This was confirmed by European PES Brand Manager Lennart Bobzien when talking to RealSport.

In response to being asked if there will be a demo for PES 2021, Bobzien said “I can confirm that there will not be a demo for eFootball PES 2021 Season Update. As a result of the delayed finish for various football season and the “Season Update” approach, we decided against a demo this year”.

However, there is still an opportunity to get in the swing of things ahead of the release on Tuesday, 15 September 2020.

Season Update

PES 2021 will just be a Season Update, meaning there will be no need for a demo this year.

The update will come with all the latest player and club data. So don't fret, PES will be refreshed ahead of the new season.
