Thanks to a press release from Konami, we’ve learned the “Music to Score Goals By” for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016.
- Queen – We Will Rock You
- Joywave – Somebody New
- Broken Bells – After the Disco
- Passion Pit – Lifted Up (1985)
- Asgeir – In Harmony
- St. Lucia – Elevate
- Royal Blood – Figure It Out
- Saint Motel – My Type (Radio Edit)
- Dillon Francis and Sultan and Ned Shepard – When We Were Young (featuring The Chain Gang of 1974)
- Clean Bandit – Rather Be
- Madeon – You?re On (featuring Kyan)
- Vinyl Theatre – Shine On
- CTS – Love the Past, Play the Future
The songs skew modern/alternative, but much more chill than many sports games. There is only one arena anthem song in the mix, Queen’s We Will Rock You. It stands out not only as the one rock song in the soundtrack, but also the only song older than five years.
The semi-electronic mix of other songs works well together, and I could see the upper-range male vocals that most of them possess blending together over the many hours spent within the game.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 releases September 15th, 2015 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
