PES 2017 Gets Trial Edition for All Platforms

Konami has released a trial edition for its acclaimed soccer title, PES 2017, today. PlayStation 3/PS4 players in Europe and Steam users around the world can access the free version today. The Xbox One version launches globally tomorrow, with Americas getting the PS3/PS4 version on Monday, November 28.

Players will have access to “key” game modes alongside full access to this year’s official PES LEAGUE competition starting from December. In a press release, the publisher wrote:

The Trial Edition allows the user to play matches with nine fully licensed teams from both club and national competitions. FC Barcelona, Arsenal FC, and Club Atlético de Madrid represent the cream of Europe, while Boca Juniors, Club Atlético River Plate, Sport Club Corinthians Paulista and Clube de Regatas do Flamengo showcase the South American talent in the full game. The German and French national teams are also available, giving a spectacular cross section of talent and playing styles to the novice PES player.

Matches are played within stunning recreations of the Camp Nou and Neu Sonne Arena, and the PES 2017 Trial Edition also allows full access to the Skills Training section, as well as access to the new dedicated PES LEAGUE mode. The in-game PES LEAGUE mode has been created to make accessing the Official PES eSport competition much simpler. Beginning December, players simply register via and enter their details into the game, whereupon they will be able to play against their peers as they vie for a place in this season’s PES World Finals which will be held in June 2017.
