eFootball PES 2020 is the next installment in the well-known series of Pro Evolution Soccer football simulators. The game puts much more emphasis on e-sport gameplay and introduces numerous improvements to the gameplay mechanics. The game was developed and released by Konami, responsible for developing the series since its foundation in 1996 (although the roots of this brand go even further into the past - then it was known under the name of International Superstar Soccer). Andres Iniesta, a legend of FC Barcelona, was involved in the works on the game.

Mechanics

eFootball PES 2020 is a classic football simulator, combining a high level of realism with ease of playing. Compared to the previous installment, a number of changes have been introduced, such as an improved system of receiving and guiding the ball, improved passes, and mechanics dealing with desiging goal situations, thanks to which players can carry out efficient counterattacks and tactically use free space on the field.

The creators also took care of a number of additional manoeuvres (e.g. a new type of dribbling, as well as a lot of tricks to avoid rivals) and plays (e.g. "first ball" strokes). Changes can also be found in Master League mode - improved transfer management mechanics (resulting in a more realistic pricing of players) and a special interactive dialogue system.

Game modes

In eFootball PES 2020 one can play both alone and with others. In comparison with the previous games in the series, the game puts emphasis on multiplayer gameplay - especially in the professional (e-sport) edition.

The developers have also introduced a brand new Matchday module, in which players take sides and work with other team members to compete and fight for a place in the grand finale.

Technical aspects

eFootball PES 2020 has three-dimensional visuals that present a high level of quality. Player models resemble real footballers and are very realistic and well-animated. The stadiums were also treated with great attention to detail and were faithfully reproduced thanks to the use of photogrammetry technology (three-dimensional scanning). Compared to its predecessor, the appearance of the turf, the lighting system and the audience's behaviour were also improved. Another novelty is more realistic animated scenes, accompanying e.g. interactions with judges.
