PES 2019: 4 incredible new celebrations that’ll make FIFA fans very, very jealous

Look away now, FIFA fans

PES 2019 will be a vastly different game to last year’s version – not least when it comes to celebrations.

We’ve gone through a load of gameplay clips to pick out new celebrations coming to the game this year.

FIFA fans look away now – some of these are absolutely incredible.

Group selfie 

Perhaps our favourite new celebration is the group selfie – demonstrated by Man City and Argentina hit-man Sergio Aguero.

This will see the goalscorer run over to the sidelines, pull out a phone and then take a snap.

It’s available when you play a co-op match – what a lovely touch.

Thanking the fans

After a match, there are now cutscenes where the players go out and thank the fans.

They even walk with their shirts in their hands.

What a bunch of legends

If you play with the Legends, there’s a celebration that sees them pick up the microphones and pretend to start singing into them.

Mad? Yes. Awesome? You betcha.

Va, Va, Vroom

Elsewhere, if you net with Olivier Giroud – he’ll take a load of his teammates to the sidelines, sit down, and then pretend to drive a car.

We’re yet to see anything like this on FIFA.

Vroom, vroom

All these little touches really help PES have its own identity – crucial if it’s to fight against FIFA this year.

But it’s not just celebrations that are new this year – thanks to the FOX Engine – visuals have also been tweaked and improved.

Player models are far more detailed, boasting more lifelike expressions and animation.

This year’s game takes player individuality to the next level by introducing 11 new skills.

These include cross-over turn, no-look pass, controlled chip, dipping shot and rising shot.

Players will also show visible fatigue, which impacts performance and behaviour.

Elsewhere, new shooting mechanics will take into account improved ball physics, player and ball position, and player skills and shot styles.

Thanks to ‘Enlighten’ software, true-to-life visual effects and 4K HDR is supported across all platforms.

Real time ‘Global Illumination’ lighting and shadows results in better crowd detail, real grass textures and the return of the popular snow weather effect.

Significantly, the Champions League will not feature in this year’s game after UEFA and Konami confirmed their partnership has come to an end.

“It has been a very cooperative and mutually beneficial partnership,” said Marketing director of UEFA events Guy-Laurent Epstein.
