‘Pro Evolution Soccer 2019’ Goes Free-To-Play With ‘LITE’ Mode, Out Today
The Pro Evolution Soccer series has again made the move to free-to-play with the launch of its new LITE version, following 2018's edition. The special, streamlined version is out now for PC (Steam), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Regularly regarded (recently, at least) by critics as a superior gameplay experience, compared to the all-conquering FIFA series, PES has been held back by a substantial lack of official licenses, new game modes, and some truly terrifying player likenesses.
Its latest iteration, PES 2019, saw its UK physical sales figures fall by 42%, compared to PES 2018 - this, despite another round of generally positive reviews.

So it's not that surprising to see the game attempt to widen its audience with another F2P version. And frankly, it's a good move, with LITE not skimping on features despite its pay-nowt business model. Check out the trailer above.
A selection of online and offline modes are available in LITE. Exhibition matches and skill training are included, likewise the PES League mode - which ultimately gives players the opportunity to qualify for global events, in three-on-three co-op competition.
LITE's inclusion of myClub extends to permitting players to sign a series of famous names to their fantasy squad, including Diego Maradona, Ronaldinho, and David Beckham.
PES 2019 LITE is out now. Are you going to download it? Are you the kind of FIFA player who always switches to alternative controls? Yeah, we see your PES showing. Let us know.
