Trailers can really whet the appetite ahead of a big gaming release.
That's no difference for sports titles, and for Konami's PES 2022 - kicking off the campaign with an epic trailer will be vital for perking interest ahead of release.
So what do we know about PES 2022's trailer, and when will it release?
PES 2022 Teaser Trailer
Yes, we have already got an early insight into what PES 2022 could look like, with a Next Gen teaser arriving over a year ahead of release.
It may not show a lot, but gives us a little taste of what impact Unreal Engine can have on stadiums and players - like Lionel Messi.
The trailer arrived a day before the PES 2021 trailer on 15 July 2020.
PES 2022 Trailer Release Date
Expect July to be the month where PES news starts to step up.
E3, the famous gaming expo, will take place from 15-17 June this year, and we would imagine this is about the time that PES news ramps us, with the announcement trailer being revealed.
What could we see?
We run through the things to look out for when PES 2022's Trailer is finally revealed:
After securing the exclusive rights for Juventus and Roma in the past two seasons, all eyes will be on which licence Konami can lure to team PES next.
Two new Italian clubs look to be partnering with Konami, but it remains to be seen if this will be an exclusive partnership.
Unreal Engine - 4 or 5?
We know that for the first time, PES 2022 will run on Unreal Engine.
What we don't know is whether this will all UE4 or UE5.
Unreal Engine 5 is set for release in "mid-2021" - so perhaps the trailer, and any E3 announcements will let us know the specific engine version the game will run on.
Of course, PS5 and Xbox Series X players will want to know how PES 2021 will perform on Next Gen consoles.
The initial teaser shows off a glimpse of Next Gen capabilities, but perhaps a clear difference between the Current and Next Gen visuals is what the community needs.
Perhaps the GOAT of sports game career modes, Master League ties to get a classic manager mode with a story mode.
Various cutscenes and chapters make Master League feel different to any other career mode, and we can't wait to see what's on offer this year, as well as any new manager avatars that are available.
PES' MyClub does fall victim to failing to compete with FIFA Ultimate Team - so Konami should look to really shake-up the mode this year.
What can MyClub offer that nowhere else can?
This could be exploring more online co-op options, more competitions or even pink slips for players.
