The free trial edition for Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 is now officially available. Konami announced the trial is up for grabs on PC, PS3, PS4 and Xbox One platforms and offers gamers free game modes and teams in order to compete in e-sports ready competitions. The official launch of Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 dates back to September 2016 and is completely compatible with the new PS4 Pro console recently introduced by Sony.
Moreover, the official Konami website has revealed that a few aspects, like online matches and standard competition mode along with the myClub features, while editing options and Master League mode are off the table. Basic training options are still there to let players perfect their gameplay.
There is also the online PES League mode for those who want to test their mettle online against other players. With the offline exhibition mode, gamers can play with few teams in select arenas, sans access to full leagues or arenas like in the full version of the game.
