The age old rivalry between FIFA and PES is still very much a thing. The latter, however, just took a massive blow from FIFA after simultaneously losing out on an incredibly beneficial partnership, and announcing the exclusion of certain key features on the PC version of PES 2017.
Luckily for Electronic Arts, FIFA 17 has entered a partnership with football team Bayern Munich, from Germany – one of the best football teams in the world, arguably.
This means the team and their grounds will be given special treatment in FIFA 17. Basically, it’s a good thing. The partnership received a special announcement in the form of a short trailer, focusing on their role in the game and featuring some behind the scenes content. Take a look below.
So, in the land of FIFA, things are just peachy. They’ll be making a massive profit (as usual) when the game releases, and it’s sure to be a hit. Personally, I don’t play football games, so I’m not the best person to ask; but there’s a lot to look forward to in the next iteration of the famous football franchise.
Now, as for PES 2017, things aren’t doing so good. It was recently announced by Product Manager Adam Bhatti that the PC version would be inferior to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of PES 2017. Specifically, visuals and performance will be better, as is always the case, but some key content will be missing from the PC version. Perhaps a price cut is in order, to keep the PC community satisfied? Unlikely, but it’s worth mentioning.
FIFA 17 and PES 2017 will be launching September 27 and September 15 respectively, which gives Konami the advantage in terms of release dates – which probably doesn’t count for much, if we’re honest. They’ll both be available for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, and PC with FIFA 17 being available through Origin. PES 2017 will (obviously) be excluded from a launch on Origin.
