Check out the first early demo of PES 2022

The so-called New Football Game Online Performance Test is now available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, and Xbox One, reports Eurogamer.

Although the name ‘PES’ is not mentioned, according to Konami it is indeed a test version of the next edition. The demo is mainly intended to test ‘the quality of online matchmaking’. Gameplay mechanics, balance, animations and graphics are still under development, according to the company.

The demo was developed in the Unreal Engine, something Konami announced last year. “When we played with the Unreal Engine, we decided that this was the engine for the next console generation. The Unreal Engine is the foundation for the future of PES,” said brand manager Lennart Bobzien at the time.

It is not yet known when PES 2022 will be officially released.
