Lead Developer Kei Masuda attended a PES 2013 event in Italy earlier today. The editor of PESFan.it was also present and was able to tweet some new information regarding the future of the Pro Evolution Soccer series.
Arguably, today's most interesting announcement was; Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 will run on a new engine - regardless of whether the next generation of consoles arrives in time for the game's release or not.
To see the new and hugely-intriguing Fox engine in action, check out the Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes trailer, which Konami released earlier this week.
A new engine creates endless possibilities for the PES series, like a snowy weather option for example. Speaking of which, Konami today confirmed that Player ID will be one feature that will be improved once the new engine arrives next year.
Jumping back to the present, Kei Masuda has confirmed that once released, PES 2013 users will have to download a data pack to get up-to-date line-ups and squads. This DLC will be made available "shortly after" the game is released.
The Lead Developer also revealed that the final version of PES 2013 will be "very similar" to Demo 2.
Finally, Marvin Ronsdorf of prorevo.de has posted up a handful of new Master League screenshots, detailing some of the new features that have been implemented this year. See them all in one place on our forums.
