UEFA announced that their collaboration for a Champions League license with Konami as publisher of Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) game has ended.
The decision signifies that the partnership finally stalled after 10 years, right from 2008 when PES games for the first time officially hosted the Champions League competition in their game. The Champions League is an annual contest featuring the best clubs in Europe. EA’s soccer simulation has long trumped PES for official licenses, though the absence of the elite Champions League had left a significant gap.
Now, the existence of Champions League licenses in FIFA 19 will add to the vibrant choice of games in the game and become a big advantage for EA, as the developer beats PES.
FIFA 19 players will then be able to choose Champions League tournaments through special fashion or will feel the sensation of playing in the Champions League in ‘The Journey’ mode and much more.
Sorry PES guys, you won’t be having a champions league mode anymore! FIFA lovers… are you excited about this?
