Konami have officially confirmed the release date for PES 2020 Demo that will be available on all platforms. The date is set for 30 July 2019 and the demo will feature 14 teams including FC Barcelona, Arsenal and three secret teams.

Japanese publisher and developer Konami have officially confirmed the release date for eFootball PES 2020 Demo. Players will be able to try out the game starting on 30 July 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam on PC.

With this year's demo, Konami are bringing a lot more content to players who will get to play with a total of fourteen teams which also include three secret teams that will be revealed later this month. Here's the list of known teams:

  • FC Barcelona 
  • Arsenal FC 
  • Palmeiras 
  • Flamengo 
  • Sao Paulo 
  • Sport Club Corinthians Paulista 
  • Vasco da Gama 
  • Boca Juniors 
  • River Plate 
  • Universidad de Chile
  • Colo-Colo

As you can see from the list, another typical roster for PES Demo that's made of teams from South American nations, while Barcelona and Arsenal defend the European colours.

As for the available modes, players will get to compete in Online and Co-op modes and another great addition is the Edit mode, where you'll get to create your own kits and teams. However, only PC and PlayStation 4 players will get Edit Mode, it won't arrive to Xbox One version of the demo for some reason.

Konami are yet to confirm the length of Online mode availability in the demo. It's possible that the mode will be open until the game releases but this is just a wild guess. Konami will probably shed some light on this once the demo officially launches.

Also, there are no details on Online play for consoles and if players will need PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold but since the last year's demo required the mentioned subscriptions, it's safe to expect more of the same with the upcoming demo.
