Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced the latest iteration of the highly acclaimed soccer game, Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) 2013, will be available for download at a reduced priced through XBOX? Games on Demand and STEAM™ digital download service.

For this year's game, the development team went back to the origins of the game that pioneered the genre, by working directly with fans of the franchise to deliver a game that gives total freedom of control back to the players. This full control, coupled with enhanced artificial intelligence and life-like player animations makes PES 2013 the most realistic soccer game on the market.

Similarly, Pro-Active AI ensures that players move as they should both on and off the ball, creating a true authentic soccer experience. The Player ID system then enhances the feeling of individuality, with players that not only look and move like their real life counterparts, but also play just like them.
