While Konami still has to confirm the release dates for their latest PES 2018, the pre-order bundles are on sale now. Two bundles with exclusive content are available for purchase over at the Microsoft Store.
Tough yet unconfirmed, a release date for Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 is set around 14 September. Konami still has to confirm this information, but lets put a pin in that for now, and focus on some new features this year's iteration of the soccer simulation will bring to the field.
According to True Achievements, the PES 2018 will include the following. "Strategic Dribbling, Real Touch+ and new set pieces take the unrivalled gameplay to the next level". I don't know about you, but whenever I dribble its always highly strategic, plus I'm very excited about this next level of the already unrivalled gameplay.
There will also be new menus and real player images as a part of the presentation overhaul. PES league integration and online co-op are also set to be available in the 2018 version. Some other fresh features include master league upgrade and enhanced visual reality. That means there will be pre-season tournaments and an improved transfer system, as well as new lighting, and new player models.
An old fan favourite set to make a comeback is the random selection match feature, complete with new presentation and options.
Two different bundles are available for pre-order right now. Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 Pre-Order Bundle's price is set on £54.99 and it will include the pre-order exclusive content: two Premium Partner Agents for myClub, UCL Agent for myClub, Exclusive Agent for myClub.
Speaking of, bonus myClub content will come with: four Start Up Agents, a Partner Club Agent, and 10.000 GP every week for 10 weeks.
The PES 2018 FC Barcelona Edition Pre-Order Bundle will cost you around £64.99. In addition to the standard pre-order items, you'll also get: a FCB Special Agent, a FCB Legend Special Agent, and 1.000 myClub coins. That's not all, of course, as more exclusive items will be announced soon.
While the release date for North America is currently set on 12 September and two days later for other regions, it will do you good if you take those dates with a grain of salt, as they might just be placeholders for now.
