Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 or PES 2018 was recently released, and our review for the game is already out. While the football simulator performs great, one thing that has always held the PES series back is the lack of licensed teams and kits. Teams have weird names, and their players wear different jerseys. While it might not be possible for Konami to get the official licensing for PES, thankfully, it does allow custom modding. As such, you can manually edit each and every model and bring life to it. But wouldn’t that be a tedious task? Well, fret not, since the modding community behind PES is highly active, they’ve brought about a complete patch for your game. This patch updates the following features:

  • Brings real name licenses to all Leagues and Competitions
  • Adds real names to all the teams (club and national)
  • Brings real kits to all teams (club and national)
  • Adds all the missing teams from the Bundesliga

Sounds great, doesn’t it. And what’s more is that installing this is super easy. So without any further ado, let’s get started.

Note: The ability to add custom data is only available on PC and PS4. Microsoft XBOX doesn’t allow the user to import custom models from the storage, thus there is no workaround for XBOX users. Whenever any other workaround for XBOX users is discovered, this article will be updated accordingly.
