The new eFootball PES 2020 release date arrived for most of the world on Tuesday, September 10. It became available in Asia as of Thursday, giving Konami reason to finally unveil the new trailer. They’ve also unveiled a game update on the same day. Earlier on Thursday, the eFootball PES Twitter announced the live update is now available for fans anticipating the fixes.

Gamers have mixed reactions to the first update so far. Some are still requesting PES update certain teams. Others are saying the game is a “FIFA killer” although it remains to be seen since FIFA 20 officially releases a few weeks from now. Even so, PES 2020 provides gamers with their international football fix until EA’s title launches.

The new eFootball PES 2020 game is currently available for Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One, and Windows PCs. See more details about the game at Konami’s website.
