PES 2017 Announcement
PES 2017 was officially announced on 25/05/16 and will be released in the Autumn. We discuss the PES 2017 details that we know so far.
You will have all seen Konami’s official release discussing the various features of the new game. We’ll highlight these at the bottom but for now we’ll list some PES 2017 details that you may not already know.
PES 2017 Details
Arsenal to be licensed?
A screenshot provided by user Shales on the OnlyProEvo forums suggests Arsenal will be licensed in PES 2017. This photo was taken from a preview event in Milan during the Champions League weekend. The photo also shows improved player faces and a simpler format to alter tactics.
New advanced controls for PES 2017 have been leaked, per @fai9l_saud. These suggest there will be a new dash dribble feature (probably similar to toggling on FIFA) and a close control feature.
Adam Bhatti dropped a few extra details just after the official release announcement. The most notable, and one that fans will be most glad to hear, is that referees will be completely reworked for PES 2017. This is great news as this was probably the most obvious feature that held PES 2016 back.

Other things Adam eluded to included are a significant improvement in the in-game graphics, adaptive artificial intelligence and a huge improvement in goalkeepers.
Elsewhere, PES Day, a day for the PES community to preview PES 2017, is happening on 02/06/16. As per Asim Tanvir there will be no embargo for the attendees so they will be free to share all the PES 2017 news and resulting opinions. PESmyClub will be sharing lots of PES 2017 on PES Day as well.
Below are the features Konami detailed in their official PES 2017 announcement:
See how different players control the ball in unique and different ways based on where and how you control them, dictating the flow of the game based on how they react to the unpredictable movement of the ball.
Combining Real Touch and real ball physics, passing is an art form in PES 2017. Many factors determine the speed and accuracy of the ball. The pass that is made on the best situation and timing will generate a perfect trajectory, creating a great satisfaction when a killer pass is made.
Keepers see a great jump in quality through added motions and animations, creating the most agile keepers in PES history. Attacking moments will be more dramatic than ever, bringing the best feeling of achievement when that goal is scored.
Strategies that are quite individually defined such as Tiki-taka and Tight Marking which is strongly based on team ideology can be set in Advanced Instructions, which adds a huge variety in how you plan to win.
Total Team Control
Users can instantly change the attacking and defending mentality of the team, which can be tweaked and carefully controlled with simple controls, being able to immediately react to the unpredictability of the sport.
Corner Kick Strategies
Control the defensive strategies on a set piece, such as marking zonal or Man to Man. Offensive options also included such as specific player movement.
For the first time in a football game, the AI will learn how you play! Player and team behaviour has always been a staple of the PES series, and for PES 2017 Adaptive AI will change sports games forever.
For PES 2017 the visuals have seen a major upgrade, offering Authentic Visuals thanks to the further incorporation of Fox Engine. Nothing has been left untouched, from player models, lighting, crowds, pitch and stadiums totally revamped. Never has a game looked so real.
Natural Player Movement
Hundreds of new animations have been added to bring the players and goalkeepers to life – but it doesn’t stop there. New features such as Real Touch and Precise Pass see huge benefit, giving a vast array of movements when trapping and passing the ball.
