Quick question: what is the first game being made with Konami and Kojima Productions' much vaunted 'Fox Engine'? The answer may surprise you. It's not Metal Gear Solid 5, it's actually Pro Evolution Soccer 2014.
I was surprised when I was told that, but then I got excited. It seems insane now, but when I started writing about video games for a living, Pro Evolution Soccer was the undisputed kingpin of football video games and FIFA was... a little bit dreadful.
Above is the first teaser trailer for Pro Evolution Soccer 2014. It doesn't say much, but it does seem to herald a certain change of direction in tone. At least, that's what I'm hoping. For a while now PES has been slowly repositioning itself as a game for the football connoisseur and this footage, complete with classical music, black and white footage, close ups, etc. All the regular cues for hoity toityness.
I think it's clever. It's a good idea. It'll be a long time before PES is able to challenge the commercial juggernaut that is FIFA, but it can still retain that super core fanbase.
@dillon2112 the fact that people are saying its CGI is flattering. Wait until you see the E3 trailer o_O
