Unless you're a fan of France, Football didn't come home this summer*—sad trumpet—but PES 2019 is coming to PC on August 28 (opens in new tab). Konami has now released its PC system requirements, and has revealed a playable demo featuring 12 teams is due August 8. 

First, the minimum and recommended specs (opens in new tab)

Vanarama National League:

OS: Windows 7 SP1/8.1/10 - 64bit
CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 / AMD FX 4350
VGA: NVIDIA GTX 670  / AMD Radeon HD 7870
DirectX: 11.0
Hard drive space: 30 GB
Resolution: 1280x720

UEFA Champions League: 

OS: Windows 7 SP1/8.1/10 - 64bit
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 / AMD FX 8350
VGA: NVIDIA GTX 760  / AMD Radeon R9 270X
DirectX: 11.0
Hard drive space: 30 GB
Resolution: 1920x1080

And now, the demo.

The demo shows off some of the game's official licenses—although not all: Celtic, for example, isn't present. We'll get to play as Barcelona, Liverpool, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Palmeiras, and the French and Argentinian national teams. 

PES 2019's full release comes with overhauled myClub features, a so-called "Visible Fatigue" mechanic, and a gorgeous interpretation of early 2000s David Beckham (opens in new tab). That hair, *chef kiss*. 

Our roundup of the best sports games on PC (opens in new tab) includes both FIFA 2018 and PES 2018. Both are worthy of their spots, but I reckon the latter has overtaken the former in recent years. PES' player likenesses, crowds and animations look lovely powered by the publisher's Fox Engine. 

PES 2019 is due on PC August 28. Look out for its demo on August 8.
