Earlier today EDGE Magazine unveiled details about the new PES2014 engine and it does look very promising indeed! Although the magazine is only available if you pay for it, Winning Eleven Blog made a great article about the new engine and you can read about it HERE.
There's a lot of interesting things in the article and I've highlighted a few key things for those too lazy to click the link!
The new engine was thought of by many to be the Fox Engine. However, the PES team state that it is NOT the Fox Engine but an adaption of the engine made specifically for football games. The engine comes based on 3 main pillars which come as the following:
‘Barycentre’ Physics and Ball Control
Contact and Physicality
Interesting too see that this is NOT the Fox Engine but that is is tailor made for football games and just like last year, they've focussed on 3 main categories of improvements/features. Definitely want to see more information about the Squad Emulator (and whether Barcelona play like Barcelona or Chelsea play like Chelsea) and the new control and contact developments.
It seems Team ID is also a big factor of the new engine with the new tactical side of the game. Player’s can set ‘Zones of Play’ and create playing styles that will be instantly recognizable of your favorite teams. The article mentions that of Celtic’s playing style when they managed to over come Barcelona. Players can set their full backs to over-lap or even double up on players such as Ronaldo or Messi when they receive the ball.
For those worried about the new engine only being available on next-gen, everything in Tokyo was shown to be running on the PlayStation 3. However, Konami have stated that the new engine is also ‘ready’ for next-gen.

Hey guys, posted this in another thread too, but thought it would be good here as news, and for more to see maybe as I was pretty excited to see this.
Not sure how official it is, but it looks like a patch will be coming in a couple months to fix some of the issues with the game, I will link again where I found it originally in the PES fan forum and to where it states this info.
Is it bad that I normally only play BAL on PES? I know I've got the game at home and that I might start a SOMS tonight if time permits (recording the damn thing). Still, I'm going to play both PES and GTA tonight, trying to make something useful happen with both.

Bummer. I might just stick to PES 2013 then for a while.

Because that would be common sense and easy to put in therefore to even question if theyd be put back in is silly.

Saeglopur, unfortunately the greatest game mode in PES history will not be making a return.

Licensed kits and so on haven't mattered for years because they're so easy to replace. I'd rather they put in hundreds upon hundreds of unlicensed teams that can be replaced by option file, but obviously the loss of stadiums and stuff this time around has been a bit of a pain.
Still don't know if Random Selection matches are back or not. Can anyone tell me. Still waiting for their return, even though I'm not expecting it. They were the best on PES 6.
