What are the biggest new features?
As ever, there are a number of new additions both on and off the pitch to this year’s game.
The biggest is the return of the Champions League licence, which has been held by Konami for Pro Evolution Soccer since 2008.
You’ll be able to play it as a standalone tournament mode, in The Journey, Career Mode or in FUT related content.
In terms of gameplay, there is a new active touch system which will revolutionise the way players move and travel with the ball, whilst shooting has been completely reworked.
And physicality is a huge part of the game this year, as 50/50 grapples and the tackling system have been improved.
Tactics have undergone a radical overhaul, which will change the way you play the game against both the AI and your mates.
