Football has been the talk of the town forever, and with EA and Konami rolling out popular games like FIFA and PES, they have managed to gather quite an appreciating audience. Now with Pro Evolution Soccer (PES 2016) coming out with the latest DLC update for the UEFA Cup, we can clearly spot the upgrades from the previous edition.

UEFA Euro 2016

First things first, this update will be absolutely free for the previous owners of PES 2016 which is definitely a smart move because these DLCs are meant to be free. It’s certainly an encouraging trend unlike some other DLCs which provide miniscule content but cost just as much as the original game.


When we talk about the gameplay, the you can actually feel how smooth the game is and how controlled is the handling when you run across the field dribbling the ball. When playing on the Playstation 4 every input is highly responsive to every short pass, tackle and shot enhancing the gamers experience. PES’s fast paced gameplay is amazing with friends while relaxing on a sofa and won’t strike you with boredom at any point of the game.

There has been some great additions to the cosmetics of the game with the addition of 199 new player faces, redefined Player and Team IDs which makes the game more visually appealing. Now because of the updated Player ID, the players seem a lot more like their real-life counterparts. Everything from their peculiar movements, mannerisms and abilities seem quite well done. Team ID upgrades provides the gamer with the team’s favorite playing formation and playing pattern making it a great value addition to the game’s level of realism. Aside from all of this, new player boots and ball styles has been updated along with adjusted player ratings of over 1,400 players reflecting their mid-season performances.

This 3.9 GB upgrade added new national team licenses, an official match ball, an official tournament mode, tournament branding and the Stade de France stadium which is the only stadium out of the 10 venues planned for the upcoming tournament in France, Konami has overlooked the other venues completely or probably the licensing fees were too much. If that would have made the difference between this DLC being free or paid, then we’d say Konami made the right choice.

Value for Money

If Konami acquires the license for the remaining teams, provides the appropriate team kits and includes the remaining nine stadiums which have been planned for the UEFA Cup 2016, this will definitely be worth the money. For what price? If they price it around 5$ (roughly Rs.340), then we are looking at something a lot more football fans would have really appreciated.


You should not get too excited about this update or expect a lot from this, the major USP of this update is the cosmetic upgrade and the improvements to the Player ID happen to be the icing on the cake. One major drawback about this game is Konami not acquiring license for all the national teams which might have made a good value addition and the DLC could have easily been priced for five Dollars or Euros. After all, having really popular teams like Belgium playing in plastic kits feels a bit odd.
