PES 2011 fact sheet released
20th Sep 2010 | 17:54
A fact sheet for Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 has been released - detailing the footy sim's key features.
The biggest addition this year are the various incarnations of total control with everything from dribbling to through-balls, giving PES 2011 a much more sophisticated feel.
Here's the list of features:
Users can pass the ball into space, and move their play with total freedom. Players must precisely weight their passes and second-guess the runs of their team-mates and exploit their movement. Players even can apply pressure on opponents to force them off the ball.
The physicality between players is also improved, which was a priority requested in PES forums. Jostling and blocking now looks stunning, while there is a larger variety of convincing tackling styles. Ambient animation also adds immensely to the in-game atmosphere, as players behave realistically when off the ball, and walk and run with a variety of individual styles.
The game will burst into life as counter-attacks come into play, but players can dictate the pace via slow build up or exploiting available space to surge forward. It is harder to make long runs from midfield, and successful play will depend on making quick passes to create space.
Facial animation has been enhanced, but the key advances are over 1000 all-new animations which have been recreated from the ground up using over 100 hours of motion captured footage yielding more organic runs, turns, throw-ins, tackles, and interaction.
These settings are also animated to promote better understanding of the plays that have been altered.
Demos for PES 2011 and FIFA 11 went head to head recently. Which side of the pitch do you stand on?
