PES 2012 will add a new feature to the series called Teammate Control. This system enables control to be taken from the AI with a selected player, while still controlling the player with possession of the ball.
Unlike Off the Ball control, Teammate Control works via the use of the Right stick to move and select the player you want, then clicking R3 to select. There will be an assist mode available as well as a manual, the assist mode will allow more effective movement while the use of manual mode gives complete freedom of control.
“The addition of Teammate Control is something we have been working on for a while now, and we are delighted that it will make its debut in PES 2012, we have been building to create a control system that truly lets the player do whatever they like on field, and the ability to manually control a second player while simultaneously running with the ball opens all kinds of attacking options.” “Coupled with the Active AI advancements that ensure supporting players make shuttle run and find space, and I think we have made a huge step towards producing the most advanced football title to date.”
European Team Leader commented Jon Murphy on the new addition to PES 2012.
