Konami has announced that the latest edition of its soccer franchise, Pro Evolution Soccer 2015, will be kicking its way to consoles and PC this November, including the debut of the franchise on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The cover star of the game will be German national team star Mario Gotze, and will come with the following features, per Konami:
Second Division Teams - Second division teams from England, Spain, Italy, and France have been added, which also adds to the game's overall player database. It's unclear, however, how many or which teams from each league are being added.
Roles In Co-Op Multiplayer - Co-op play features a mode in which you can divide the pitch into attacking, midfield, and defensive areas where players on the same team each control a zone. Whether or not this extends beyond simply switching between all your midfielders, for instance, or encompasses further control options is unknown at this time.
Stadium Editor - Options for your stadium include being able to set the pitch patterns, sideline and seat colors, and goal net design. The game also features unnamed new licensed stadiums.
Online - A division structure has been added with promotion/relegation. How many divisions and games in a season are unknown. Online play also features a QuickMatch option as well as dedicated 11v11 lobbies.
Master League - Improvements include revised player growth, transfers, and managers. New cutscenes have also been included and national Super Cups integrated.
Become a Legend - This mode features a new training portion, mode-specific match simulations, and new transfer and recruitment systems.
Weather - Rain has been added.
The game will ship to stores and make its digital debut on November 13th, but soccer fanatics won't have to wait long to get their hands on it, as a demo will be available for all formats (except PC) on September 17th.
