PES 2016 players will be getting their hands on the Euro 2016 update for free next month, but players on these shores should prepare themselves as the Republic of Ireland team hasn’t been licensed.
That means that we’ll be missing out on the latest kits and player likenesses. But Konami says that all squads will be "in line" with those of the qualifying nations via playing styles being replicated by the Player ID and Team ID systems.
The Republic of Ireland isn’t the only team not licensed for this DLC. Licenses haven’t been acquired for Romania, Switzerland, Russia, Poland, Belgium, Sweden, or Austria either. The 15 licensed teams (of 24 competing) are: the hosts France, along with Northern Ireland, England, Wales, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Iceland, Turkey, and Albania.
The Euro 2016 DLC will be released on March 24th as a free update to anyone who already owns PES 2016. It will be released as a standalone download on April 21st on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
