Officially licensed Euro 2016 Game:
We are just over 2 weeks away from the official Euro 2016 game release – exclusively licensed by Konami. The March 24th release is for the digital copy which will be available for free, via downloadable DLC, for existing PES 2016 users on Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. It will be released as a physical stand alone edition on April 21st for those who for some bizarre reason don’t have PES 2016 or just fancy the physical copy. This will entail both the original PES 2016 and the additional Euro 2016 content.
Today’s big news is Gareth Bale has been unveiled as the cover star. Bale is the latest in a long list of superstars to join the PES team.
As per the official Konami website:
The UEFA EURO 2016 mode will feature full iconography and presentation elements from this year’s tournament, and also includes the Stade de France stadium, which hosts the final in July. From the 24 qualified teams that feature real players with hundreds of authentic player faces, 15 fully licensed teams will be included with the latest strips for England, Wales, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, Iceland, Turkey, Albania, Northern Ireland and hosts France, all perfectly recreated. All squads will also be in line with those of the qualifying nations with the various playing styles perfectly replicated via the game’s innovative Player ID and Team ID systems, which mimic the exact playing styles of both individual players and the team as a whole.
Some users may question why there are only 15 fully licensed teams. Do not worry though, the experts from the usual PES community sites will have you covered with beautiful downloadable replica kits for the other 9 teams.
There will also be Euro 2016 bonuses for myClub. This will include special Euro 2016 agents which will allow players to obtain the players who are performing best in Euro 2016. There will also be myClub bonuses for those purchasing the physical copy of the official Euro 2016 game – access to the special ambassador agent, 7 special Euro agents and 10,000 GP every week for 10 weeks.

Finally, in addition to all this, as Konami have produced the official Euro 2016 game their deal will extend to other games Konami have made including PES Club Manager and PES games for iOS and Android. This will result in bespoke Euro 2016 content being created for these games.
