PES 2017 demo detailed

Has nine clubs, including Arsenal.

A PES 2017 demo comes out on 24th August 2016 in Europe on PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. There's no demo for PC.

Trust me. I'm a professor.

The demo includes nine teams:

  • Atlético Madrid
  • Arsenal
  • Barcelona
  • Boca Juniors
  • River Plate
  • Corinthians
  • Flamengo
  • Germany
  • France

The teams are based primarily on May 2016 data, so don't expect all those new Arsenal signings to be in the team what? Oh well. You can always play perennial underachiever Theo Walcott up front in his natural position.

Konami warned that due to licensing, some players in the demo may not be in the final version of the game (there's a "Live update" due out the same week as the retail version).

Two stadiums are included: Camp Nou and Neu Sonne Arena.
