Konami announced today that the free UEFA Euro 2016 content will come to Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 on March 24 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

If you don’t own PES 2016, Konami will release a standalone version of PES 2016 and the UEFA Euro 2016 content for PS4 and PS3 in North America (digital) and Europe (retail and digital) on April 21.

In the UEFA Euro 2016 content, 15 of the 24 teams taking part are fully licensed with the latest strips and authentic player faces. The licensed countries are as follows: England, Wales, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Northern Ireland, and hosts France. Konami adds, “All squads will also be in line with those of the qualifying nations with the various playing styles perfectly replicated via the game’s innovative Player ID and Team ID systems, mimicking the exact playing styles of both individual players and the teams as a whole.”

Featuring full iconography and presentation elements from the tournament, here’s what else you can expect from the UEFA Euro 2016 content:

The official PES League will be running online competitions across the duration of the tournament, while a series of special myClub promotions are also planned. Running alongside the tournament, KONAMI will release a series of special myClub incentives, including new Euro Special Agents that allow key players that are performing well at the tournament to be recruited for use within the myClub feature. Those who purchase the physical copy of the game will also receive exclusive myClub rewards, including a special Ambassador Agent, seven special Euro agents giving them seven players representing the 24 qualified teams.

You’ll also find UEFA Euro 2016 content for PES Club Manager and PES Collection titles on iOS/Android.
