PES 2017 Pro Evolution Soccer PlayStation 4 PS4 1

Breaking: Konami still makes video games. The publisher has announced PES 2017: Pro Evolution Soccer for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 today, with its full unveiling scheduled to coincide with the Champion's League final on Saturday between Manzanares and Chamartin – er, we mean Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid. Obvs.

The reveal will be complemented by the 2016 PES World Finals, whereby 32 of the top Pro Evo players will battle it out over a €15,000 prize and tickets to the final later that day. The competition will be held pitch-side at the San Siro, which is pretty freakin' cool. But enough about the eSports angle, what's going to be new in PES 2017?

Well, it sounds like Konami's invested a lot of effort into the passing aspect of the game. The all-new Real Touch system will adapt the way different players bring the ball under control, while Precise Pass will put more emphasis on the position of your players to determine the accuracy of their passes. This adds "a genuine feeling of excitement when a defence is split with an inch-perfect ball" the press release reads.

Much more will be revealed over the coming weeks, and at E3 2016 next month. Are you a PES person, or do you prefer FIFA? Hum the Champions League anthem in the comments section below.
