Release date: September 10th

Demo release date: July 30th

Some new exclusive licences such as Man utd, Bayern and Juventus.

Looks like they've listened to fans about improving master league and other game modes.

Looking forward to demo and seeing how the new gameplay feels.
Think it will improve over last years by quite a bit.

They seem to prefer banging on about players faces and getting big licences rather than anything meaningful like their appalling netcode and matchmaking, one dimensional A.I and general gameplay. Proper EA-esque.

I'd genuinely like it to be decent, but last years iteration was poor. Still perplexed as to how someone decided (in their FUT equivalent) your manager determines the only formation you can use and limits the skill level of your team. Want to change formation? Then buy another manager, for actual cash . . . even EA don't make you do that.

Gameplay wise, was just like Fifa, but with different glitches.

Did like that you could combine teams with 2 mates, so was a bit like FUT meets Pro Clubs.

Menu system was utterly attrocious mind. Seen better in 8 bit retro games.

I don't care for the online so wouldnt know enough to criticise it, don't think it's awful but nothing special.
Master league is all i really play on it and it is very good, should be even better in this one. From reports on people who have played it the gameplay is a lot better. AI defending is much more realistic and the gameplay supposedly feels great.
Will have to see from the demo if i enjoy the new gameplay, but fingers crossed it's as good as so far reported.

It's not like, the predictable attacking A.I in 19 ruins the whole thing. It was basically all I played with PES but it was so bad this year I had to move onto online Co-Op instead.

At least they've sorted the terrible transfer system out this year, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see if they've done anything with the A.I.

For Co-Op I'm hoping they separate MyClub and real teams, and also that they do not allow 1 player with 2 COMS (completely misunderstanding what Co-Op is).

Think it depends the difficulty you play on, legendary is not much fun as you always get sucker punched by the AI. Super star is good though, if i'm a top team i can domimate with the occasional defeat here and there, like in real life, if i'm a low team i can do well but never excessively so without a really good run or stand out player. I enjoy masterleague, played a hell of a lot on this years.
I agree AI needs better attacking play but looks as if it will have that in the new one.

Legendary is just a scripted mess of a difficulty, slowing your players down, AI ping pong, it's just lazy programming. Always played superstar but when I know the AI will go out of it's way to play a low cross in to the box regardless of the circumstances, it became a pile of shit for me. Plus teams seem to be lacking any team i.d they used to have, most play exactly the same.

I haven't seen anything to suggest the attacking A.I is any better... but we shall see on the 30th.

Only issue I have with online play is the matchmaking system is all over the place. It is still a great game and the gameplay is such much more advanced and realistic than FIFA. Menus and stuff are shite but on the pitch It's basically a game made for purists and people that love football.

Played the demo. It's basically PES 2019 but slower, slightly more polished and way over saturated. You've got to wonder what Konami devs do for 12 months because it certainly isn't working very hard.

They think changing the background colour and rounding text boxes is a complete UI overhaul

It is mind. Like the new camera angle a lot. Team mate pressure is still there and stupidly op. Ruins any attempt at playing a decent game online. I do like Co-op mode. Always been better on pes

Player movement especially on the ball feels more natural. Looks a bit sharper too. It's the differences they make away from the actual football side of it that'll determine whether I get it. Master league needs an overhaul

Changed my opinion on it. While it's not easy to score on the super star difficulty I've played 5 matches and the opposition haven't had a single shot. I haven't had a goal kick yet
