[edit] Background

Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 is the next instalment in the PES series.

[edit] New Features

  • The AI engine has undergone a major overhaul, with attacking emphasised as the cornerstone of play affording a more open approach to play.
  • AI players will now make dummy runs off the ball - the whole team now reacts far more dynamically to the actions of the player.
  • Defence has had some changes too, however, with zonal marking and positional defending both enhanced.
  • A new player switching system allows users to change to any player on the field using the right analogue stick.
  • On free kicks, players will have far more control with lots more scope for pulling defenders out of position.
  • The jostling system introduced in the last game has also been extended, making for a far more physical experience

This game is also known as Winning Eleven PlayMaker 2012 in Japan.
