Details of the various menus, settings and options is always a hotly anticipated topic around PES launch time. Well worry not PESFanners, your wait is over as we’ve got them right here for you!
NB: We only currently have details of offline modes, menus, settings and options. Online features will only be added to all copies of PES2015 after the game has been released on November 13.
The PES2015 home screen.
Here it is! The PES2015 home screen. This has been totally revised from it’s PES2014 equivalent with a clean and stylish tile design.
The biggest, an best, feature of the home screen however is the fact that it’s now customisable. As shown in the video below, you can now select up to three favourite modes to feature in the middle three tiles whilst the top tile displays the last mode you selected.

Training consists of two areas, skills training and free training.
Skills training contains exercises on dribbling, passing, shooting, tackling, crossing and sprinting (basic). Through ball, penalty kicks, sliding tackles, lofted passing, clearing the ball and close control (intermediate). Chipped through ball, corner kicks, free kicks, teammate pressue, penalties (goalkeeper) and controlled shots (advanced). And volleys and headers, chip shots, one-two pass, attacking situations and skill controls (expert)
