PES 2017 Release Date Announced, Last-Gen/PC Versions $20 Cheaper
Two weeks after FIFA 17.
PES 2017 will launch on September 13 in North America and September 15 in the UK, Konami announced today. The professional soccer game's PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will cost $60, while the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC editions are set to go for $40.
Konami did not provide any details on why the last-gen and PC versions of PES 2017 will be $20 cheaper. We have followed up with the publisher in an attempt to get more details.
It's not entirely uncommon for the last-generation version of a multigenerational game release to cost less than the new-generation edition. In the case of EA's NHL franchise, the publisher released a "legacy edition" of NHL 16 for cheaper on last-gen systems that was essentially a roster upgrade
The publisher also said today that everyone who preorders PES 2017 will receive "many" bonus items for MyClub, though these were not specified. More details about preorder bonuses, along with extra MyClub content for returning users, will be announced "soon."
Like past entries in the series, PES 2017 runs on Konami's Fox Engine, which also powered Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The game promises "new heights" for visuals and gameplay. You can read GameSpot's preview to see how the game is coming along.
PES 2017 competitor FIFA 17 comes out on September 27 and globally on September 29.
