Konami’s announced it will be shutting down the online servers for one of its older soccer games, Pro Evolution Soccer 2014, on November 17. The next game in the series, PES 2016, is coming out next month. PES 2015 will remain online, however. Anyone still playing PES 2014?

This PES 2016 trailer has me weirdly excited for the game. First because it’s confident enough to show actual gameplay, clipping and all, but secondly—and more importantly—because of that new commentary from Peter Drury. New commentary! In PES! Unbelievable.

It takes a lot to get me excited about an iterative sports game, but this year's Pro Evo looks to be anything but. Dat new engine.
