Konami recently announced that there would be a Euro 2016 expansion pack for PES 2016. The expansion pack will be released in two weeks, so the game developer is releasing more and more details about the content. The latest news are for the cover athlete of the expansion pack, which is Gareth Bale. The Wales and Real Madrid star has had great games for his two teams, so it is no surprise to see him as cover athlete for the PES Euro 2016 expansion pack.

Those who pre-order the game will earn one of six ambassador agents for their team. The six players are: Gareth Bale, Ignazio Abate, Kingsley Coman, Riccardo Montolivo, Mario Gotze and Alvaro Morata. The game will choose the player at random.
That’s not all, they’ll also receive seven players from the Euro 2016 tournament to use in MyClub. 10,000 GP will also be given to the players for ten consecutive weeks. The bonuses will only be for those who pre-order the game. It was also confirmed during the announcement of the expansion pack that the content will be free for those who own the full game.
