PES 2014: World Challenge DLC warms up

Introducing new DLC content for PES 2014, with an all-new World Challenge mode featuring a new International Cup.

The new content is available for PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360 and integrates an all-new International Cup competition into PES 2014. The mode charges the user with guiding their international team or player to glory in the International Cup competition. In ‘Team’ mode, the user governs every aspect of play, from team selection, to choosing offensive and defensive tactics. While ‘Player’ mode sees the player striving to earn selection and retain their place via their performances in a game.

The World Challenge mode runs the full gamut of a top-level competition, from qualifying rounds, through to the main tournament. Within it, players can adapt their squads in the run up to qualification, set up friendly matches to recruit new talent, and finally enter the group and knock out stages of the tournament. The mode features separate qualification competitions for European, African, American and Asian sides, with a set number from each continent allocated spaces.

The DLC features entirely new presentation and front-end elements, with options to view squad details down to the finest detail, while new AI elements see players responding to strong performances and raising their game, or suffering a crisis of confidence which can affect their playing levels. New cut scenes have been added too, presenting your final squad selection once you qualify for the International Cup following a successful regional qualification round. World Challenge mode also includes the official Brazilian national team and player likeness.

As part of the continued support of PES 2014, a free DLC and patch will be available on the same day, updating a whole host of features. It will update 9 International team kits such as Italy, Portugal and Greece, as well as implementing  new boots from Nike, Adidas, Puma and Umbro. Also included are over 60 player face updates and additions, with lifelike representations of England’s Jack Wilshere, Spain’s David Silva and Gerard Pique, and Germany’s Mario Götze and Marco Reus. The new adidas Brazuca ball will added.

The patch will improve gameplay for a smoother experience, while bringing in new cheating measures for online play, as well as the ability to select the World Challenge mode (purchase required to access).

World Challenge Mode will be available to download on March 26th, priced £7.99/€9.99, with free DLC and patch released at same time.

    PC users got every dlc &patch some days later so far.
    PC users didn’t get a dlc including current transfers, a dlc which is out for ps3 and xbox since days.

    So this is like the 100th time we get big disadvantages.

    Great stuff konami, I will still continue to support the game and will be buying this dlc.

    But be warned if pes 2015 on next gen is not any good then I will not support you anymore. If you continue to treat loyal fans as beta testers then it’s gonna get messy.

    The DLC should be free. We have had many problems with PES2014 and want to spend more money in a regular game.

    I’m always intereste when new dlc’s are released as an excuse to force me to keep going back to play it. I WILL buy this dlc but just based on the premise of not having an incomplete game. To be honest I’m expecting a 2014 Copa Libertadores mode as delivered the previous 2 editions. I’ve bought every PES between pS2 and XBOX 360 as well as a couple of iPod Touch and Wii editions. I also get the FIFA’s aswell and will be buying the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 EA Game which is £50 so the World Challenge Mode for £8 will keep me going until 15/04/14. To all the haters I’m too stupid to be able to use patches and at least Konami update kits unlike FIFA who just release the same game every year (which being English yes I’m that guy that will buy all new garbage thrown in my face) and with every game we have to take the rough with the smooth. This year we got the AFC Champions League, Europa League and League modes back
    as well as 2 new fully licensed leagues all I am asking for is the Copa Total Sudamericana mode and Recopa Total Sudamericana which
    Konami published they have the rights to or will this be in PES 2015? And one last thing to prove I’m not a FIFA/Konami Fanboy but a hardore Football Fanboy, I also own Pure Football or as I would like to call Shaolin Soccer and NO-ONE would like another game like that (Ubisoft)!
