Konami has announced the creation of a free league for their PES game. The free league is aimed at accruing new members to the gaming platform. The football gaming industry is one of the most popular esports sections, however it is dominated by EA Fifa.
“The in-game PES LEAGUE mode has been created to make accessing the Official PES eSport competition much simpler,” the press release says. “[Players] will be able to play against their peers as they vie for a place in this season’s PESWorld Finals which will be held in June 2017.
Konami is still competing with EA FiFA and will continue to fight for dominance in the lucrative football gaming industry.
“As the PES series continues to go from strength to strength, we [Konami] are exploring a number of ways to build its reputation within the eSports sector,” commented Jonas Lygaard, Senior Director of Brand and Business Development at Konami, regarding the dedicated mode.
