More players are checking Konami production, so we didn’t have to wait long for the first material comparing PES 2022 with PES 2021. The Japanese decided to make a major modification, after many years of changing the engine, thanks to which the latest part of Pro Evolution Soccer was created on Unreal Engine.
Yesterday, Konami invited a new soccer game for testingResulting in sharing on the web Materials showing the gameplay in PES 2022. We’ll have to wait until next month for the full rendering of the game, but the first videos comparing this year’s Japanese production with last year’s title are already showing up.
We still don’t know what PES 2022 will eventually look like, because yesterday’s encouraging message to check it out was clearly emphasized. Gameplay, balance, animation and graphics are under development and will be improved before the official launcha“. Despite these warnings, players who decided to check out a scrap of items spared no bitter words for the development team.
For years, the Pro Evolution Soccer series has used the Fox engine, Konami’s in-house technology, while the market-targeted version is “kind of a revolution”. The developers announced last year that they needed more time to truly deliver the next-gen game, so PES 2021 was just an update of an earlier part, and the studio also announced an engine change. Currently, PES 2022 is already being developed on the Unreal Engine.
