Lionel Messi And Gareth Bale Perfectly Captured In PES 2022's 'Unreal Engine'

Screenshots of Lionel Messi and Gareth Bale's game-faces have got fans seriously excited for the launch of PES 2022.

Konami are preparing for life on next-generation consoles such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and have changed to a new 'Unreal Engine'.

And early images of the detailed graphics, created by an independent artist using the all-new engine, look very promising.

The below images of Messi and Bale genuinely look like real-life pictures of the pair.

The duo's facial features have been captured perfectly, with hair, beard and ears all on all point and a huge buzz has been created on social media.

However, the consensus is that Messi's likeness is much closer than Bale's appearance - particularly going off the front image.

PES 2021 marked the 25th anniversary of the Pro Evolution Soccer games by releasing a season update at a discounted price instead of a brand new game.

With the 'Unreal Engine', Konami are promising "more realistic player models and animations, enhanced physics, photorealistic visuals".

They released a teaser trailer starring Messi back in July 2020, featuring close ups of his face and Adidas Nemeziz boots.

More recently, Konami made a surprise limited test version demo of the next PES available to download so gamers could get a feel for the new game.
