Game overview/synopsis

Pro Evolution Soccer (or PES) is the biggest rival to EA’s FIFA football games.

The franchise has often focused on gameplay over official licences and rights to player names and teams.

While it is not as popular as FIFA today, it still has a dedicated playerbase – and its titles have been improving year-on-year.

It’s not as widely followed an esport as FIFA is, but there is a competitive PES scene.
