PES 2019 hit the stores on 28 August 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PS4, and Konami has announced that this year's iteration would introduce a host of changes to the game, which are all set to improve the overall gameplay experience. Furthermore, the game also features a host of new licenses, bringing the game one step closer to a realistic football experience.
