We have some good news for those of you who picked up a copy of this year’s PES offering in favor of FIFA 12. Konami has just announced a release date for when a batch of DLC will be available for the game – an update which will be free of charge.

There’s nothing better than free DLC so first of all – hats off to Konami for making this happen. The free DLC will be available for all three platforms of the game (PS3, Xbox 360 and PC) and will be available to download from your respective online marketplace on October 11th – i.e tomorrow!

The update will make good on any player transfers that haven’t been applied to PES 2012 yet, while you’ll also get the latest kits for your team and items such as football boots that real-life players use at the moment – Konami are going really realistic on us here then.

More interesting though, the update will apparently update 160 clubs with more realistic player statistics and abilities, as reported from GodisaGeek. As you can see with our title, we can’t help but mention that poor old Fernando Torres may be given a lower rating in the game, to reflect his shocking form for club team Chelsea as of late. The same could be said for out of favor Carlos Tevez who can’t seem to do anything right after his recent exploits for Manchester City after refusing to play.

It will be good to see just how realistic Konami are taking effects in real-life and converting them into PES 2012. Will Torres actually have lower stats and will Tevez be moved from a Manchester City starter to a place on the subs bench or further down in the reserves? The update will probably have the answer so let’s wait and see.

If you are playing PES 2012 at the moment, let us know your impressions of the game so far. Is Torres amazing on the game and should he be given a lower rating or is it too harsh you feel?
