Later this month, Konami will release Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 update 1.02, which adds over 39 improved facial likenesses to players and introduces new boot styles. Then, in late November, PES 2017 update 1.03 will be released, adding PS4 Pro support in the form of a 4K resolution mode, offering “greater visual definition running at 60fps.”
Set for an end of October launch, here’s what Konami says about update 1.02 and the improved facial likenesses:
The October file will recognize over 39 players who have excelled in the early part of the season, and will offer photo-realistic reproductions of the likes of Wissam Ben Yedder, Mario Lemina, Aymeric Laporte, Victor Wanyama and Denis Suarez, and will also see their individual playing styles recreated within the game. The 1.02 download will also update the pitch side hoardings and introduce new official boot styles to the game, including the option of choosing a variety of studs.
In addition to PS4 Pro support, PES 2017’s November update will include changes designed to reflect the match day experience at Anfield stadium and Signal Iduna Park:
Liverpool’s iconic Anfield stadium will be added to PES 2017’s roster on if-game venues, and will also be the first to show the club’s brand new stand within a video game. World recognised Liverpool songs and chants, including ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ will also be heard as the players walk on to the pitch and during matches.
Borussia Dortmund’s stunning Signal Iduna Park ground will also be perfectly recreated for use in the game, with both licensed teams having squad likenesses recreated, bringing the club stars to life.
Both updates will also bring more official iconography and official boot styles, kit additions, and bug fixes.
Expect more PES 2017 updates throughout the year.
