PES2015 – Menus, settings and options

By Bees?! Posted on in Community, PES2015

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.

Home Screen

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.

 

Match

More details will emerge about this mode once we’ve had a chance to explore it in a little more depth.

  • Become A Legend

Extras

  • Training

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)

Video of training screens

These work off a new trophy system based on points accumulated based on time and how effective the player is in completing the exercise and offers a more advanced training scheme than was featured in PES2014.

Free training allows more freedom allowing players to try a number of scenarios (free play, free kicks, penalties, left hand corners and right hand corners) with between 4-11 players on each team.

    Nice one Bees, best bit of info Ive seen. You done well. Looks like all the offline games have co op. Which makes me hopeful that at least 1 mode online will have co op 2v2. Masters league online 2v2 would be the ultimate. One step at a time though ha

    Any idea if the stats screen will include games vs friends offline rather than just vs the CPU? PES2010 used to have it and its been missing ever since

    It's labelled as VS COM match so I doubt it.

    - Data Management (allows players to save changes, load changes and import and export teams)
    So basically this means:
    - No emblem editing
    - No Stadium editing/creation (with only 6 official and 4 fake ones confirmed so far)

    Importing teams sounds interesting if this means that the Bundesliga can be imported.

    Stadium editing is done a bit differently.

    You edit the stadiums per team, so if you're playing as North London then you can change the nets to be red, outer pitch red etc.

    As far as I understood that means there are no structural changes which is quite a bit of a shame as that would really add a lot to the game. Are there any news on the depth of appearance or kit editing to be expected soon?

    Appearance editing seemed very detailed. I didn't get involved with it on PES2014 so don't know how much is has changed but the appeared to be plenty of options.
