While it’s looking less likely there will be a European Football Championship this year because of the Coronavirus, eFootball PES 2020 fans will at least get the chance to recreate the tournament on their own and online. Publisher Konami has confirmed that it will release a free Euro 2020 update for the game on April 30th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Konami says it will feature all 55 national teams, as well as faithful recreations of Wembley and Saint Petersburg stadiums. In late June, the company will also add the official Euro 2020 finals ball to the game. MyClub – PES’s version of FIFA’s Ultimate Team feature, will get a few tweaks as well. For instance, you’ll be able to use select “featured players” in your matches throughout the summer.
At the moment, the Euro 2020 tournament is slated to start on June 12th. However, plans seem to be up in the air to if they will happen. “Discussions will include all domestic and European competitions, including UEFA Euro 2020,” it said. With the coronavirus outbreak now a pandemic, and other sports organisations like the NBA and NCAA taking drastic measures to protect fans and players, UEFA will likely postpone the tournament.
