Hi guys, over the last few weeks I have been thinking about my current OF and plans for next years. Although there is no confirmed release date for PES 2014 yet for the BLES regions it has been confirmed that the BLUS versions will be released on 24th September, which means the BLES versions will most likely be either that same week or the week before. As games are released in Australia on Thursdays that will mean either the 19th or 26th. As I said this isn't confirmed, just my belief based on the confirmed date for the American versions.
With this is mind I will release the final subscriber update on Friday 6th September followed by the final regular (v2.7) on Monday 9th September. This then gives me a couple of weeks to first of all have a tiny break from editing, as well as start getting everything in place for the 2014 OF. When this final update is released I will make the extra subscriber teams available to everyone
Which leads me onto my plans for PES 2014, where I will again be making a OF for the BLES PS3. BLUS and Xbox versions will depend on if the same kinds of tools are availiable for PES 2013 are avaliable for 2014. This may take a while as the new game engine may take a while to crack.
So far there has been very little news on the editing side of the new game as is always the case, the only things confirmed so far are goalkeepers will have their own specific stats and that kits will be added in a different way. No full details on the exact changes to kits have been announced, but the common thoughts are that instead of using a image like this
as we do currently, we fill be able to add detail to the whole kit just like on PC where this is the kind of image used.
Hopefully this is the case as not only will it make the unlicensed teams look as good as the licensed ones, it will also be much quicker for me.
The next few weeks should see more info released about other important things such as new licenses and how many editable leagues/teams there will be so I can start planning properly. Until then I am planning that there will be the PES and WE Leagues as usually so again I will be creating the Bundesliga and Championship.
Just as a final thing on the PES 2014 OF, I have decided not to do subscriber updates. It has been great fun and I would once again like to thank everyone who has supported me by subscribing, but it has been hard work committing to getting enough new content for every week. I will still aim to keep up the high quality and amount of content as previous years, just with updates released when I think one is needed like previous years. I will aim for one update a month, but some months there will be more.
Thanks for reading, Paul
