If you’re a soccer gamer, September is about to be one exciting month.
Konami has confirmed Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 will launch on September 24, the same day EA Sports’ FIFA 14 arrives on store shelves.
As Konami announced earlier this year, PES 14 will use a modified version of Kojima Production’s Fox Engine. The new installment will feature six key gameplay improvements (TrueBall Tech, Motion Animation Stability System, Heart, PES ID, Team Play and Core).
EA Sports’s has also announced the revamped version of the ever-popular Career Mode. Additions include a Global Scouting Network through most countries, which allows you to hire a scout to search for talent all season long from various clubs around the world. It has been redesigned for easier navigation, fewer interruptions and live scouting reports, among other features. Managers are now able to develop, build and refine their network of scouts, gathering details on the attributes and traits of players from around the world. This innovative way of playing Career Mode also moves away from the concept of player overall rating as an on-demand metric of a player’s abilities. Instead, you communicate to your scouts what type of player you are looking for.
PES 14 will be available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
FIFA 14 will be avaiable for PC, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PSP, PlayStation Vita, Wii, XBox 360 and Xbox One and is powered by a new engine called the Ignite Engine. This engine features both graphical and gameplay changes such as crowd improvement, realistic movement from the players, and much more. Ignite Engine will only be available in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.
It should be noted there is no release date yet for FIFA 14 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
