The free PES 2020 demo is out now. Yes, really.
Now, this isn't anything as comprehensive as the full game, but it does offer a great chance to hone your skills and get used to gameplay tweaks.
So, what do you get? Here's everything you need to know about the PES 2020 demo.

This year, you will be able to download the demo from the PlayStation and Microsoft stores on July 30, with the full release date on September 10.
The teams announced for the demo are:
- Manchester United
- Bayern Munich
- Sao Paulo
- Vasco da Gama
- Boca Juniors
- River Plate
- Universidad de Chile
Last year, you also had the choice of two stadiums, the Camp Nou & Veltins-Arena (Schalke).
The Nou Camp is certain to remain, given Barcelona's renewal with Konami.
At recent capture events with the press, Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena and Juventus' Allianz Stadium were used - and with both stadiums exclusive to PES 2020, expect them to be the demo also.
The iconic Old Trafford, home of Manchester United, has also been shown, so United fans can start to get their hopes up of the Theatre of Dreams being in the demo.
What modes will be featured?
The PES 2019 demo was pretty generous when it came to content.
You could play offline exhibition matches, offline co-op, and online quick matches.
The latter was a demo first last year, and was welcomed by the community - especially given the fact that the FIFA 20 demo (which will drop a couple of weeks after PES 2020's launch) only catered for offline play.

As you can see in the picture above also, an Edit Mode will also be available in the demo. Hugely popular in the full game, this will allow you to edit kits, crests and more.
Get a feel of it on the demo before creating your perfect kit on the full game later this year.
The Camp Nou will almost certainly feature in the PES 2020 demo
