PES 2017 Data Pack 3 adds over a 150 player faces, plus new kits and boots.
The third Data Pack update for Konami’s football game, Pro Evolution Soccer 2017, is now available and free to download on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Steam.
The pack includes 153 new player faces, featuring stars like West Ham United’s Aaron Cresswell, and Liverpool FC’s Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino. In fact, if you’re a Liverpool supporter you’ll be pleased to find out that a range of ‘Anfield Legends’ have been added to the game, including past players such as Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, and little Michael Owen.
PES 2017‘s other Premium Partner – F.C. Barcelona – gets the same treatment with legends, Laurent Blanc, Lilian Thuram, Hristo Stoichkov, Ludovic Giuly, and Ronald Koeman, all now playable. The update also adds a large number of rising star players from the English, French, Italian, Brazilian and Argentinean leagues.
Other additions include eight historic Borussia Dortmund strips, new pitch-side hoardings, and new footwear from Nike, Adidas and Puma.
The game’s myClub mode has also been added to the free-to-play PES 2017 Trial Edition. Until February 23, players who start myClub for the first time will receive a UEFA Team of the Year and a PES Player agent to help bolster their squad. You lucky things.
Konami have also released a new patch for PES 2017 that fixes several gameplay issues and, erm, hair styles. You can find full details on the Pro Evolution Soccer website.
