Konami have released a highly anticipated demo for PES 2013 today, available both on Xbox 360 consoles as well as PCs, with the PlayStation 3 demo being scheduled for release on July 31st. And in order to celebrate the launch of the demo – which should be definitely considered a must download by everybody, the developers have also launched a new trailer featuring Cristiano Ronaldo.
PES 2013 marks major advancements for the popular soccer game including new game mechanics such as PES FullControl, where players are given total control over every pass, shot and even first touch to the ball. Similarly, Pro-Active AI ensures that players move as they should both on and off the ball, creating a true authentic soccer experience. The Player ID system then enhances the feeling of individuality, with players that not only look and move like their real life counterparts, but also play just like them.
The first demo allows users to experience these key additions first hand and features eight fully licensed teams, including Germany, England, Portugal and Italy from the European field, while Santos FC, SC International, Fluminense and Flamengo are available in the are available in the Copa Libertadores mode.
Check out the PES 2013 demo trailer featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, as you wait for the demo to be downloaded:
The full version of Pro Evolution Soccer will hit game stores this fall.
A very interesting project is in the works at Trion Worlds in collaboration with SyFy: they are planning the release of Defiance, an interconnected MMO shooter, meaning that the world and storylines will co-exist throughout a scripted drama series and a multiplatform MMO shooter. A very interesting concept and I am sure we’ll all like to give it a try!
Set in the near future, Defiance introduces an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully.
Each week, viewers will follow an immersive character drama set in the boom-town of Defiance, which sits atop the ruins of St. Louis, MO, while in the game, players will adventure in the new frontier of the San Francisco Bay area. The dramatic tapestry of the series and the intense action of the game will exist in a single universe where their respective narratives will inform one another and evolve together into one overall story.
Absolutely interesting and surely sounds “Sci-fi” for me, proving that real life gaming and movies can co-exist. Just imagine how it would be to kill a character from the movie, in the game, and have it out of the show or something. That is pure madness!
oth the series and the game will debut simultaneously in April 2013 and the series is executive produced by Kevin Murphy (Desperate Housewives, Caprica; Hellcats) & Michael Taylor (Battlestar Galactica), so we have all the reasons to be excited.
