PES 2016: Legends Announcement

By Bees?! Posted on in Community, PES 2016, PS3, PS4, Videos, Xbox 360, Xbox One

It’s the one you’ve been waiting for! Details of the five myClub legends have been revealed, and will be arriving into myClub on December 17 – as shown in the official legends trailer above.

An advance notice has already been uploadeded to the game, confirming that the legendary players making an appearance within the game will be Roberto Baggio, Roberto Carlos, Oliver Kahn, Luis Figo and Filippo Inzaghi.

The press release accompanying the announcement added that each player would debut with their peak playing stats, and they’ll enjoy the same realistic face and physique modelling that has bought many of the current top players to life within PES 2016.

It also states that the legends will be offered within a special agent which will be introduced into myClub on December 17. The only further details given about this agent is that it will be available for a one week period and no mention was made as to what the chances of bagging a legend will be.

Likewise, it wasn’t disclosed as to whether the legends would be available in the game once the agent finishes on December 24, nor whether any further legends would be appearing in the future.

KONAMI will be softening the pain of having to wait for the agents to drop with a log-in campaign. Starting from December 9, a top agent of differing positions will be given to those that log into the mode between 00:00 and 23:59 UTC.

This culminates on December 17 with an unnamed Special Agent awarded on that day, although logic dictates that this is likely to be one of the aforementioned special agents containing the legends. The full schedule for the log-in campaign can be found below:

09/12 00:00 – 23:59 UTC – Top Agent [FW]
10/12 00:00 – 23:59 UTC – Top Agent [MF]
11/12 00:00 – 23:59 UTC – Top Agent [DF]
12/12 00:00 – 23:59 UTC – Top Agent [GK]
13/12 00:00 – 23:59 UTC – Top Agent [FW]
14/12 00:00 – 23:59 UTC – Top Agent [MF]
15/12 00:00 – 23:59 UTC – Top Agent [DF]
16/12 00:00 – 23:59 UTC – Top Agent [GK]
17/12 00:00 – 23:59 UTC – Special Agent
