PES 2014 won't include rain, Spanish stadia or a stadium editor


Adam Bhatti, PES Community Manager has spoken out on why PES 2014 will be missing some of the series' usual features. 

The football game won't feature rain due to technical issues within the engine and EA's "aggressive" pursuit of Football related licenses mean there won't be any Spanish grounds or a stadium editor.

"Rain has not been implemented for 2014 as we had to overhaul the whole game and build it from scratch," said Bhatti in a statement posted on the Winning Eleven Blog.

"While implementing rainy weather itself is fairly feasible, we need to think through of how its effect shows through in gameplay. This includes the pitch becoming slippery, ball bouncing, some elements to make the team used to that climate somewhat more power in terms of balance."

"We are going to try further this year to get the elements sorted and have them implemented for 2015. As for the kits getting dirty, this triggers on multiple requirements, often to do with the player contacting the ground." 

"EA have been extremely aggressive with signing deals with clubs and leagues this year, and it has meant we can't implement major European stadiums, including NO Spanish stadiums. People were getting worried when they announced exclusive deals with Spanish teams. Well it turned out it meant we couldn't implement their stadium, amongst others."

"This news came pretty late to us. Which is where a time issue came in, meaning we didn't have time to rebuild other stadiums to replace them. PES 2014 will ship with roughly 20 stadiums.

"Adding to the licensing woah, Stadium editor has been removed. This, personally, is the biggest hit. I can't go into it, but this in particular has made the team realise more than ever about acquiring licensing, and we're determined to fight back in this regard next year. If things are removed from edit mode because of licensing each year, it would rip out the soul of PES, and we must not let that happen."

PES 2014 takes to the pitch on September 20th for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

I played at E3 this year. It's quite different to previous PES titles, the gameplay and style of previous PES games has been left with the old engine. There's a ton of new animations and after you get used to it, it plays really nicely, if a little slower than past games.

Will have to give PES a go this year see how the new engine works. Always kind of preferred PES its always felt more random always felt with FIFA you score a lot of the same goals over and over again.

I fear PES has been slipping for a few years now. I've always preferred PES as it feels more realistic. That and there was a generation of the two games a few years back where every time I slid in FIFA I got a red (despite them being legit tackles in PES). However, if FIFA keep getting the licenses then PES will continue to lose the fans that *need* that realistic aspect of the game. And they've really missed out with the next gen console. Although that said, it all depends on how quickly people shift from one console to the next. I can still see a lot of football gaming fans not making the jump right away, although any that do can only opt for FIFA...

Its actually quite sad how the football games have been monopolised this generation you really have only PES and FIFA this generation if you go back to the PS1 and PS2 era you have games like sensible soccer, Kick off, This is Football, Virtual Strikers and stuff like Red Card and Sega Soccer Slam. The only other football game I can think of this generation was Pure football and that was more 5 a side.
