With music becoming ever more synonymous with the big game experience, KONAMI has compiled a series of licensed tracks for use within the award-wining game. Menus, in-game elements and match days are complemented by a series of suitably upbeat tracks, perfectly mirroring the use of music as part of the match day experience in leagues across the globe.
KONAMI has already showcased its use of Queen’s classic ‘We Will Rock You’ in trailers for PES 2016, but the rousing staple is supported by anthems from Royal Blood, Vinyl Theatre ad Saint Motel. The full track listing is as follows:
Queen – We Will Rock You
Joywave – Somebody New
Broken Bells – After the Disco
Passion Pit – Lifted Up (1985)
Asgeir – In Harmony
St. Lucia – Elevate
Royal Blood – Figure It Out
Saint Motel – My Type
Dillon Francis and Sultan and Ned Shepard – When We Were Young (featuring The Chain Gang of 1974)
Clean Bandit – Rather Be (feat. Jess Glynne)
Madeon – You’re On (featuring Kyan)
Vinyl Theatre – Shine On
CTS – Love the Past, Play the Future
The soundtrack is announced as PES 2016 nears its September 17th/18threlease, marking the series’ 20th anniversary. The game was voted ‘Best Sports Game’ for the second year running by the gamescom judging panel, and hits the field with a wealth of new gameplay additions and advances.
