Konami’s PES 2017 will offer all owners the chance to partake in the game’s official eSports league.
Until now, Official PES League competitors would need to partake in scheduled, externally organised events to participate in the competition. Now the league will be built directly into the game.
As the PES series continues to go from strength to strength, we are exploring a number of ways to build its reputation within the eSports sector,” Konami’s senior director of brand and business development Jonas Lygaard said.
"Later this year we will be integrating the hugely popular PES League element as a dedicated mode within PES 2017 and future iterations, allowing organised competitions to become easily accessible to absolutely anyone owning a PES title."
PES 2017 will be released on September 15th.
