PES 2020's Free UEFA Euro 2020 DLC Coming In June With Every National Team
The delayed UEFA 2020 content is making its way to Konami's flagship football title soon, bringing new teams and stadiums to the title.
eFootball PES 2020 was meant to receive DLC for the UEFA 2020 tournament in April, but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 crisis--and the tournament itself is not happening. Now, after a short delay, we have a release date for the new pack, and it'll be completely free for anyone who owns the game. Every single national team from the UEFA is included in the update--that is 55 different teams to try out. You won't have to wait too much longer to get the free DLC, either, as it's scheduled to release in just a few weeks.

We are delighted to announce that the postponed UEFA EURO 2020 content is coming to #eFootballPES2020 on Thursday 4th June featuring all 55 participating UEFA National teams, 2 brand new Stadiums and more! 👀🌟 #PlayingIsBelieving pic.twitter.com/7Th57QGrKA
This content will arrive on June 4 as part of Data Pack 7.0, and will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam.
According to the press release, here's what it will contain:
- All 55 UEFA national teams, squad rosters and existing kits will be available
- The official UEFA EURO 2020 tournament mode will be added as planned
- Faithful and highly realistic recreations of Wembley Stadium and Saint Petersburg Stadium will be added as planned
- The official UEFA EURO 2020 Group Stage match ball will be available at launch
- UEFA EURO 2020 Featured Players, themed Matchdays and other in-game events are still planned but subject to change, with further details to be shared in-game
Unfortunately--but understandably--due to what's happening in the world right now, the UEFA EURO 2020 Team of the Tournament will not be released, as the tournament isn't actually happening.
PES 2020 has received some big updates since launch, including an Iconic Moments series that lets you play through some huge moments from football history. The game received a 9/10 in GameSpot's review, and reviewer Richard Wakeling said that it "might be the greatest football game ever made."
