Here's whether you'll be able to play PES 2022 on PS4

With PES 2021 winding down, attentions are starting to turn to Konami's next release.

So, read on to find out whther you'll be able to play PES 2022 on PS4.

Will PES 2022 be on PS4?

In short, yes - you will be able to play PES 2022 on PS4.

Unreal Engine

Those worried about what graphics PES 2022 may support on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One don't need to panic.

It is still to be confirmed whether PES 2022 will be running off Unreal Engine 4 or 5, but either way - both will support Previous Gen consoles.

Unreal Engine 5 is set to bring Hollywood level graphics to the video game industry, but we still don't know exactly when Epic Games will roll out.

The improved engine is said to be arriving "late in 2021" but with delays commonplace in the industry thanks to the pandemic, who knows when it could arrive.

The above trailer also shows how Unreal is progressing on "metahumans" - how humans are depicted in video games.

This could be incredibly significant for PES 2022 - bringing the players on the pitch to the next level.

Of course, for top-level graphics and performance you will still want to be playing on PS5 or Xbox Series X, but still expect an improvement on Last Gen consoles for PES 2022.

PES 2019 arrived as early as 28 August, but we think, as football returns to normality - PES 2022 is likely to arrive on Tuesday, 7 September.
