Next Gen

PES 2021 has been confirmed for release, and now we know how much it will be!

The new game is being labelled as a "season update" with updated rosters and kits, so don't expect any new features or gameplay.

So can we expect a different price this year?

Latest News - Cover Stars Revealed

Konami have announced some big names will be on the cover of PES 2021 Season Update.

TOP CLASS! Konami have brought four superstars together this year

Two greats of the game, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are joined by Marcus Rashford and Bayern starlet Alphonso Davies.

PES 2021 Price Confirmed

Konami have confirmed that "PES 2021 Season Update" will come at a "special anniversary price" due to the lack of new features and to celebrate the franchise's 25th anniversary.

The game will be £24.99 on Steam.

Team editions of the game will be £29.99.

Console players need not worry, as the PES 2021 Season Update has the same price point on Xbox One and PS4 as it does on PC!

Trailer & Release Date

The trailer for PES 2021 Season Update is here!

With it comes an official release date of 15 September.

Legend Edition?

Konami may also release a Legend Edition, but that looks to be unlikely given it's a Season Update.

No Legend or Anniversary Edition has been listed with the pre-orders.

That said, the game is currently titled as "Standard Edition", implying another one is to come...

If they do move for a more lucrative version, expect it to be retailed for $44.99 / £34.99 or $49.99 / £39.99

Next Gen

The big takeaway from "Season Update" is that the game will not be optimised for Next Gen consoles.

However, we have been teased a trailer of a future PES title on Unreal Engine 5.

We reckon this is a first look at - wait for it - PES 2022.

In a statement, Konami said they will begin testing on a new game engine (believed to be Unreal Engine 5) during mid 2021 and hope to have a game released by the end of that year.
