Pro Evolution Soccer this year might have lost crucial major UEFA league to EA Sports FIFA 19 but it still retains the advantage over EA Sports FIFA 19 in the visuals and gameplay department. Recently, Professional Footballer for Ivory Coast, Wilfried Zaha tweeted about getting his hairstyle changed in EA Sports FIFA 19.
This might have been an innocent tweet aimed at EA failing to update the models of many of the Professional Footballer in FIFA 19, but the official Pro Evolution Soccer twitter account took this opportunity to boast about their own character models.

This jab at EA Sports FIFA 19 seems to be warranted after all the market dominance that FIFA has over Pro Evolution Soccer. EA is still reluctant to make drastic changes to their blockbuster franchise leading to a stale upgrade every year. They did get a major win over Pro Evolution Soccer after it lost license for UEFA league this year, and this was picked up quickly by EA.
The most noteworthy change to FIFA was made at the start of this generation with the shift to EA DICE’s Frostbite Engine, but the progress afterward has been rather slow. Pro Evolution Soccer utilizes the Fox Engine that was developed by Kojima under Konami and first used for Metal Gear Solid V. The results speak for themselves in any case.
Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 will launch on August 28 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
