The choice between PES and FIFA 21 has become tougher recently, but don't let the licenses sway you with this easy fix!

PES 2021 is currently available at just £24.99 / $29.99 on Amazon!

What is an option file?

An option file - or patch - is created by an independent party, and can be downloaded on the game to add items that are missing.

Games such as PES and Football Manager can have option files added to them to bring across the kits, crests and branding they do not have the licences for.

Which platforms is the option file available on?

Currently, you can download an option file for PES 2020 on PlayStation 4 and PC.

Due to the inability to transfer files off a USB drive on Xbox One, you are not able to add the licenses to the Microsoft console.
