All future UEFA Euro 2016 downloadable content for PES 2016 will be free of charge, Konami has announced.
After issuing a public apology regarding the 'issues' of Data Pack 1 earlier this month, Konami have today gone one step further by promising that all Euro 2016 DLC will be available for free for all owners of PES 2016.
With further details to be revealed 'early next year', Konami have decided to not charge existing users for the DLC, in an effort to reward fans for their on-going support while also trying to 'bring back confidence in Data Pack releases'.
Data Pack 2, which is scheduled for 'early December' will provide users with updated transfers, new player faces, national team kits (below), as well as the world-famous Maracanã Stadium.
