eFootball PES 2020 Demo is Coming Out This Month | PES 2020 Demo Release Date, News, and Rumors

Best of all, multiplayer will be available from the moment it launches, meaning we’ll get to test our skills in proper online matches.
Obviously, this is not the first time the players will get a chance to test out the multiplayer component of a new PES game before its release. However, this is brand-new for all of us since we’re talking about an actual PES 2020 Demo and not a beta test. That said, the multiplayer component in the demo version should be available for testing for a longer period of time than what’s usually the case with beta tests.
PES 2020 Demo Release Date & News
The best thing about this whole available multiplayer component deal, KONAMI is yet to come out and announce the official schedule. There’s no end date for the demo networking component. In other words, this could mean we’ll get to play eFootball PES 2020 multiplayer right until the actual game gets released. Until September 10th, to be more precise.
As far as the PES 2020 Demo release date is concerned, it’s been announced that we’ll have it in our hands by the end of the month. Specifically the 30th of July, for those looking for a precise date. From all we’ve heard thus far, the PES 2020 Demo release date will be uniform across all platforms. Unfortunately, there is still no news regarding cross-platform support. In other words, it’s probably non-existent considering they would likely be shouting about it from the rooftops if the situation were different.
When it comes to other eFootball PES 2020 Demo news, there are certain factors that ought to pique your interest. For starters, the demo will feature 14 playable teams, half of which belongs to Latin-American nations. As far as European football is concerned, only Barcelona and Arsenal will be available, both of which are official partners of the game itself and will be fully licensed.
In fact, all Demo teams will be officially licensed, bringing forth an extra layer of immersion to the game. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the full game. It will still be plagued by unlicensed leagues and teams, crippling the immersion. While that’s not a problem for PC version of PES (modding community FTW), it definitely is a problem on consoles.
On the bright side, one of the best pieces of news surrounding this year’s PES 2020 Demo release date and supporting info is the addition of the so-called Edit Mode. As its name suggests, this mode will allow you to change teams’ kits, which ought to come in handy for DIY folk… and those who have problems with the new Barcelona kit design.
Unfortunately, the Edit Mode will not be available on Xbox One.
