For PES 2017, the visuals have seen a major upgrade, offering Authentic Visuals thanks to the further incorporation of Fox Engine. The lighting sources have been doubled this year, and the crowd models and field textures have been overhauled, making the visuals more realistic than ever. Details are meticulously rendered, such as being able to see the players breathing in winter, the net splashing water off when the ball hits it in rainy weather, and field debris flying around when kicked up. Shadows in day matches are more recognizable, and some of the spray lines for free kick lines are seen throughout as subtle enhancements. Nothing has been left untouched, from player models, lighting, crowds, field and stadiums. They have all been totally revamped. Never has a game looked so real.
Natural Player Movement
New features such as Real Touch and Precise Pass see a huge benefit as hundreds of new animations have been added, giving a vast array of movements when trapping and passing the ball. Player interactions (collisions) are also further enhanced with player individuality clearly represented in detailed movements (e.g. Giroud strong in physicality and Özil strong in balance). The representation for balance in the body when being physically challenged is strongly supported through the 2 new parameters.
