Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 wants to groom you into the top soccer star in the world. Each year, a few tweaks come along that move the game closer to that goal. This time, PES 2016 has six brand new moves to be unleashed in the heat of a game. There are new and effective techniques to learn on either side of the ball, performed by simple button combinations. Best of all, the game?s control scheme is completely unchanged, so veteran players should have no trouble learning the new moves.
Two new offensive moves allow for better maneuverability with the ball while under heavy defense. Players can now feint a kick in order to fool the opponent into a block attempt or dive, allowing the ball handler to walk around the now disoriented guard. For more perceptive defenders that don?t fall for the feint, the ball can be kicked between the defender?s legs or kicked one way while you quickly run to the opposite side. Both of these moves are intended to shake off the stingiest defenders in the game.
On the defensive side, two new moves keep the defending player in the ball handler?s face. The ?sliding keep? move focuses on tackling an opponent and pushing them away from the ball at the same time, allowing the tackler to secure it and move down the field. Defenders also receive a new ?shoulder barge? move to use when they?re running alongside opponents, but this move could lead to a foul if not handled correctly.
The power struggles on the pitch seem to heat up more every year, and PES 2016 is adding new moves to the field in order to claim victory. Offensive moves keep the ball in the right hands while defensive abilities create separation between the opponent and the ball, resulting in tense, one-on-one matchups all over the virtual pitch. You?ll be able to try out these new techniques and more when Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 launches on Sept. 15.
