About to peek through the tunnel, the two great soccer simulators ready their squads for the expected September debut. As if to warm up the classic, this week, the eFootball PES 2020 was presented locally and announced that it will have the 24 Super League teams, exclusive to Boca and River. Meanwhile, his rival, FIFA 20, which has already put his demo into circulation, must use fancy names (Buenos Aires and Nunez) to designate the most popular Argentine teams.
Since the premiere of the Fox Engine game engine, the PES saga opted for each player and stadium to have a photorealistic representation. On this occasion, the technicians performed a 3D scan of each associated soccer player to capture not only their annoyance or euphoria gestures, but also the characteristic movements within the playing field and their tattoos.
The big differential for the 2020 edition will be the agreements that each franchise signed separately. In recent editions the Japanese firm was criticized that most of the leagues, teams and tournaments were complete only in EA Sports showcases. On this occasion, to balance forces and reduce the distance that separates them, Konami decided to make selective contracts.
“For this edition, we decided to give fans the chance to compete with the main teams in the most important leagues. Locally, we will have exclusive Boca and River, which will allow you to wear t-shirts, official shields and their respective stadiums: The Bombonera and the Monumental. Internationally, the agreement will be with Juventus. While Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Barcelona, they will be partners that will have licensed teams and stadiums, ”says Andre Bronzoni, Brand Manager of PES for Latin America.
The commitment of FIFA 20 to mitigate the havoc left by the storm of lost clubs, has a name and surname: "Volta Football". This new mode, inspired by street meetings – recovering the spirit of what was once FIFA Street – will lead the skilled to circulate the ball in cuts, daddy courts or urban pastures of the main capitals of the planet. In turn, Volta will have its own story mode.
The particularity of this proposal that reflects the mystic of the paddock, takes advantage of the reduced spaces so that the meetings are more dynamic and last only 3 minutes. Thus, it is possible to bounce the ball against the wall to disorient the rivals or with a flying goalkeeper. Games of three or four players can be put together per team, where there are no rules, sides or cards.
As in the last editions, the PES 2020 will have the Argentine Super League and the 24 teams that comprise it, including Arsenal and Central Córdoba of Santiago del Estero, the newly promoted. The matches will have the stories of Rodolfo De Paoli and the comments of Diego Latorre.
Inside of the Legend mode There will be stars like Ronaldinho, Johan Cruyff, Gabriel Batistuta, Francesco Totti, David Beckham, Pavel Nedved, Walter Samuel, Oliver Khan, Adriano, Lothar Mateus, among others.
In FIFA, one of the modes of the moment is the "FIFA Ultimate Team" (FUT 20) that incorporates some tweaks, such as the possibility of playing friendly matches online with friends. In the variant Chemistry It will allow to create equipment without the need for chemistry. In Mysterious Ball It will make changes to the ball every time the game resumes, improving or worsening statistics and the goals that are scored every time you cross the goal. In the King of the hill, the ball must be kept in an area of the pitch and held for as long as possible.
As for the gameplay, Konami's intention is that the matches look as natural as a live match. In addition, a new default camera position will allow more field of vision to be achieved. Also, you can opt for a legendary coach like Maradona and after the games there will be press conferences.
For the prawns to achieve greater plasticity on the ground, it was called Andres Iniesta, a specialist in the field, for the integration of a system calling subtle dribbles. The goal is to be able to control the ball and on the same tile, avoid opponents without losing the focus of the direction and the hole through which the striker leaked.
For the physical (and standard) edition of eFootball PES 2020, Lionel Messi, Serge Gnabry, Miralem Pjanic and Scott Mctominay will be the protagonists. Also, Ronaldinho will appear in the Legendary edition, which is digital. It will go on sale on September 10.
FIFA 20, with Eden Hazard in the standard version and Virgil van Dijk in the Champions League, will be released next September 27th on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. The game will have early access on September 19 for EA Access users.
