PES 2018 may boast incredible graphics but for some gamers, they’re not realistic enough.
Enter “Modding Way” – a website that lets skilled modders upload their very own tweaks, or “mods”, to PES.
Mods are essentially changes to the game’s original code.
These range from minor upgrades to the graphics – adding more realistic grass, for example – to completely overhauling core game mechanics.
While modders have struggled with FIFA 18 – Frostbite is notoriously difficult to tweak – Konami’s Fox Engine is a far more accessible beast. And the results are breathtaking.
From new menu screens to intricate details around the stadium, modders are improving nearly every aspect of Konami’s already stellar game.
Some have even added individual player tattoos to those missing them in the standard game.
Elsewhere, medical buggies, corner flag improvements, ball boys and medical staff can be added – making stadiums even more immersive.
Sadly, all of these mods only work for PC version of the game – where files are easily accessible.
Still, some bright spark may find a way to bring them to the PS4 and Xbox versions of the game.
So, what about FIFA 18?
Modding Way states FIFA 18 mods are on the way – although they won’t be too substantial.
For all of the Frostbite Engine’s brilliance, it’s incredibly hard to modify. Still, there have been a couple of notable additions in FIFA 17.
One mod, for example, creates a bespoke camera that allows you to see much more player detail.
It may be some time before we see game-changing mods in FIFA – so for now, PES has a real edge.
