Pro Evolution Soccer 4: set for kick off on Xbox and PC
Online debuts for Xbox and PC-DVD Pro Evolution Soccer, as new versions hit retail on November 19th
Following the phenomenal success of the PlayStation 2 version of Pro Evolution Soccer 4, Konami of Europe will be unleashing the game for the Xbox® and on PC-DVD on November 19th across Europe - with both versions boasting fully competitive online gameplay.
The move online comes as an answer to pleas from the series' fans. The Xbox version of the game uses the Microsoft format's Xbox® LiveTM service to facilitate fully online matches, and allows for one-against-one matches against Pro Evolution Soccer 4 fans all over the globe. Similarly, the PC-DVD version of the game, supports LAN network play and online play via TCP/IP connections, again allowing one-against-one matches with a hooked up opponent.
Both versions are highly anticipated, and are key to Konami of Europe's plans to take its legendary football series forward. Other new additions to the series include club teams from Italy, Spain and Holland under official license from them, and all-new gameplay mechanics, including new free kicks, improved player AI, and more individuality to the way players move and control the ball. Pro Evolution Soccer 4 also features an on-screen referee for the first time, and will step in to break up fracas during heated matches.
"With the PlayStation 2 version rightly acknowledged as the most realistic and intuitive football game for any system, Konami of Europe is delighted to be able to introduce Pro Evolution Soccer 4 to an even wider audience of fans, and for those fans to be able to spread the word via online play," commented Martin Schneider, Marketing Director for Konami of Europe.
