PES 2021 has been confirmed for release, and now we know how much it will be!
The new game is being labelled as a “season update” with updated rosters and kits, so don’t expect any new features or gameplay.
So can we expect a different price this year?
PES 2021 Price confirmed
The game will be £24.99 on Steam.
Team editions of the game will be £29.99.
Console players need not worry, as the PES 2021 Season Update has the same price point on Xbox One and PS4 as it does on PC!
Trailer & release date
The trailer for PES 2021 Season Update is here!
With it comes an official release date of 15 September.
Konami may also release a Legend Edition, but that looks to be unlikely given it’s a Season Update.
No Legend or Anniversary Edition has been listed with the pre-orders.
That said, the game is currently titled as “Standard Edition”, implying another one is to come…
If they do move for a more lucrative version, expect it to be retailed for $44.99 / £34.99 or $49.99 / £39.99
The big takeaway from “Season Update” is that the game will not be optimised for Next Gen consoles.
However, we have been teased a trailer of a future PES title on Unreal Engine 5.
We reckon this is a first look at – wait for it – PES 2022.
In a statement, Konami said they will begin testing on a new game engine (believed to be Unreal Engine 5) during mid 2021 and hope to have a game released by the end of that year.
