Both the Xbox 360 and PS3 version of the demo will be available in North America today. In Europe, the PlayStation 3 version will be available on Wednesday, September 11, while the Xbox 360 version will be ready for download on Thursday, September 12.

An earlier PES 2014 demo was accidentally released on PSN in August but was quickly pulled as Konami claimed it wasn't indicative of final gameplay.

Konami has announced a PES 2014 release date of September 20 in the UK and September 24 in North America.

Last week Konami announced the full list of PES 2014 gameplay modes, while the list of PES 2014 achievements was revealed in August.

PES 2014 will not feature rain due to technical issues with the game's new FOX Engine. It will also be missing Spanish stadiums and the usual PES stadium editor mode, due to EA's "aggressive" pursuit of licenses.
