First Batch Available! PES 2017 to Add Maradona, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho as Legends

Update: The first batch of Legends is available to buy in myClub in PES 2017. They are Luis Enrique (84), Puyol (88), Rivaldo (88), Ronaldinho (90), Xavi (85). You can get them using the 'FC Barcelona Legends' agent in myClub and there is a 29% chance of landing a player with a 80+ overall rating.

Releasing this week, PES 2017's main aim is to reduce ground lost on FIFA, it's big rival, in recent years. The earlier release compared to the EA Sports title will surely help do that, while it looks like PES 2017 has some supremely interesting 'legends' in store.

Spectacular New Legends in PES 2017

Here are some of the legends set to be availabe in the new Pro Evolution Soccer.

After PES Master, a site specialized in offering an online look at the database, made the full PES 2017 data available a few days ago, fans quickly noticed some very intriguing names in the list of players. Spearheaded by the likes of Diego Maradona, Ronaldo and Ronaldinho, PES 2017 appears to have greatly increased the number of former players available as legends in comparison to last year - PES 2016 only featured six.

Will they be available in myClub?

The most important question remains in which capacity those players will appear in the game come release. It looks likely that they will be available in myClub, PES's equivalent to FIFA Ultimate team, especially those featuring real faces, like the three ones mentioned above. More former players, including Thierry Henry, Andreas Möller (ex-Dortmund), Hristo Stoichkov appear without faces and could in the end not feature in the full game.
