The focus of PES 2017 is the fun in playing against another player, and all the new
features support this ethos. Central to the new game is ‘Real Touch’, which authentically
reproduces a wealth of ways to receive and control a pass.
Different players use varying techniques and Real Touch mimics these using complex ball
physics and subtle control nuances as the pass is met. The new system is then complemented
with the advent of the new ‘Precise Pass’ system. Precise Pass extends the Real Touch basis of
using the ability of the player with the ball to determine the accuracy of each pass.
The movement of the ball in relation to the position of the player and the intended target for the
pass all contribute towards its accuracy, adding a genuine feeling of excitement when a defence
is split with an inch-perfect ball.
