PES 2016 is getting a full roster update on October 29


Many are saying that PES 2016 is a big step up from the last game in the series, but the game’s rosters are still stuck firmly in the past – 2014, to be exact.

The current rosters in PES 2016 are the same as those in PES 2015, which was released in 2014. Because that’s how time works with sports games.

Online Divisions, Team Play Lobby, Friendly Match Lobby, Online Competition and Quick Match will get Live Updates from 1st October, Konami said.

These Live Updates change the stats of “key players” depending on their weekly performance, and let you use the fully updated rosters of the team of your choice during online play.

Meanwhile, offline players have to wait for the game’s first Data Pack on October 29, which will launch fully updated rosters in every mode.

Quite a few fans are angry about the lengthy wait, believeing the game’s launch should have been delayed until it was feature complete. How do you feel about the wait?

Cheers, Eurogamer.
