Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 will launch in Europe on Sept. 19 and in the UK on Sept. 20 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC, Konami announced today.

The PS3 version will also be available as a digital download alongside the retail version. PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable versions are expected to launch at a later date. A demo of the game will be available from Sept. 11 on PlayStation 3 and the next day on Xbox 360. The demo will feature a tutorial mode and players will have the option to play as several teams in full matches.

PES 2014 will be powered by an enhanced version of Kojima Production's Fox Engine. The latest installment to the franchise includes six new features which work to mimic real-world players, the psychology behind team support, as well as bring other overall improvements to the series.

The game is available to pre-order now. Pre-order incentives include DLC codes to add exclusive Classic European and Latin American kits, such as Benfica, Manchester United, AS Roma and AC Milan. Digital pre-orders and digital sales post-launch will be awarded with DLC consisting of third kits for teams including Manchester United and Juventus, as well as several Latin American third kits.

GameStop, Amazon and Best Buy list PES 2014's North American release date as Sept. 24. We have reached out to Konami for North American launch date confirmation.
