As the fall approaches, gamers wait with bated breath to see who will win the soccer sim battle this year. With PES 2017 slated to be released in a few days’ time, and FIFA 17 to follow two weeks later, gamers have expressed different opinions concerning who will win this year’s battle.
Last year, PES gained the upper hand with its gameplay innovations and realistic graphics, while FIFA was a huge disappointment to its fans. But this year, with the incorporation of the Frostbite engine and an all-new story mode, FIFA looks set to bring a superior package to the table.
But with PES’s new licensing spree, which has seen the likes of FC Barcelona, Liverpool FC, Borrusia Dortmund and many other teams being licensing in Konami’s latest game, FIFA still has a lot of work to do to seal the victory.
But FIFA are still trying their best to be in the game. FIFA’s Barclays Premier League, La Liga and Bundesliga licensing will enable them to still retain complete licensing for FC Barcelona, LIverpool FC and Borrusia Dortmund.
As the days roll by, we shall see more updates on this war that is getting fiercer by the hour. PES 2017 hits store shelves in the Americas on September 13th, with its European and Rest of World release on the 15th of September. FIFA on the other hand will be released two weeks later.
