As expected, a new Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 update today (weighing in at 3.9GB) added the UEFA Euro 2016 for free, which includes new national team licenses, tournament branding, an official tournament mode, an official match ball, and the Stade de France.

Konami said:

Data Pack 3’s kit updates will bring the latest licensed designs up to date, and includes 15 of the new kits that will premiere during the UEFA EURO 2016 competition, including those of match officials. Updated kits include hosts France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Turkey, Iceland, Slovakia, Ukraine, Northern Ireland, Croatia, Albania, England, Portugal and Wales – the latter of which features Gareth Bale, cover star for KONAMI’s UEFA EURO 2016 content.

Club kits across both Europe and South America will also be updated, from Udinese and Empoli in the Italian League, FC Groningen and Willem II in the Dutch Eredivisie, La Liga’s Espanyol and Eibar sides and 10 second-tier Liga Adelante sides. The new UEFA Champions League strips for FC Groningen, Marseilles, Sporting Lisbon, and AS Saint-Etienne will also be recreated; while 14 South American sides from the Brazilian and Argentinian sides will be updated, including Flamengo, Corinthians, and Union de Sante Fe.

The kits for England, France, Croatia, Turkey, and Portugal will be available as free DLC before the tournament begins on June 10.

On top of the UEFA content, today’s PES 2016 update added 199 new player faces, refined the Player ID so individual players boast the same movements and ability of their real-life counterparts, refined the Team ID system so teams line up in their favorite formations and playing patterns, added new boot and ball styles to the main game, and adjusted the ratings of over 1,400 players to reflect their overall mid-season performances, with Jamie Vardy, Kingsley Coman, Dimitri Payet, Douglas Costa, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Riyad Mahrez, and others seeing a rise.

If you don’t have PES 2016 yet, a standalone version of the game and UEFA Euro 2016 content will be available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in North America (digital) and Europe (retail and digital) on April 21.
