FIFA 18 players may want to close their eyes… some player faces in PES 2018 are about to get a substantial upgrade.
Arsenal, one of the licensed clubs in the game, has penned a deal with Konami to give the developer greater access to the first team squad and Emirates Stadium.
This will ensure they are perfectly recreated in PES 2018.
Konami will use its cutting edge 3D scanning systems to capture facial and physical data from the full Arsenal squad, while PES 2018’s advanced Player and Team ID mechanics will be used to ensure that each player runs, passes and moves as they do in real life.
The team’s free flowing style of play will also be accurately implemented in the game.
Konami will also use the extensive access to create a perfectly rendered model of the ground.
“Our working relationship with Konami to date has been extremely successful from a licensing perspective and we are delighted to extend this and welcome them as an official partner,” said Vinai Venkatesham, Chief Commercial Officer at Arsenal.
“We look forward to getting started in the next phase of our relationship with Konami and creating some fun and exciting content that both Arsenal and wider football fans will enjoy.”
PES 2018 launched last month to rave reviews.
