PES 2019's release date is set for the end of August, and now publisher Konami has announced when we can play the game's demo. A playable trial version of the game will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam) on August 8.
"Exhibition match, quick match, and offline co-op modes will be available to play in one of two stadiums, FC Barcelona's Camp Nou or FC Schalke 04's Veltins Arena," Konami stated in a press release. "Fans will have their pick from a selection of 10 teams including Liverpool FC, FC Barcelona, and Inter Milan, plus national sides Argentina and France."
PES 2019's new features include visible player fatigue on the pitch, improved ball physics and player positioning, and greater player individuality. Konami says this year's edition of the long-running sports franchise includes "more licensed clubs and leagues than ever before," though the publisher has lost its decade-long UEFA license to EA and its FIFA series. New licensed teams for this year include AS Monaco, whose kit and stadium, among other details, will be included in full in PES 2019.
The full game launches August 28 on PS4 and Xbox One in the US, August 30 on PS4 and Xbox One in Europe, and August 30 on PC worldwide.
