How to install PES 2020 demo on PS4
The new Pro Evolution Soccer demo went live on PlayStation Store for select countries at different times. So gamers in the UK or other countries may have access earlier. It’s best to stay patient as the game may have a later release time for your country, or may not be available on a certain console yet.
A search on your actual PS4 at the PlayStation Store may not turn up the new “eFootball PES 2020 demo.” If that’s the case, search that on PS Store online. Or head over to this PES 2020 demo link (at PlayStation Store) on a web browser or mobile device. Once it’s available, make sure you’re logged into your Sony account and add it to the cart. Then confirm purchase. You won’t be paying anything since it’s free.
From there, go onto your PS4 and into the PlayStation Store. Go to “Library” and then “Purchased.” You should be able to select the PES 2020 demo there to begin download and installation. Once it’s all finished, you can begin trying out the new demo!
How to install PES 2020 demo on Xbox One
The new PES 2020 demo should be available through Microsoft Store. The game may appear there are different times based on one’s country. So gamers in the United Kingdom or overseas may already be trying the demo, while US gamers may have to wait a bit longer.
Head over to the Microsoft Store here for the latest Pro Evolution Soccer search results. You’ll need a valid Microsoft Live account so that you can log in and add the demo to your cart. Go through the purchase process, but there is no cost since the demo is free.
Now, you’ll need to download the PES 2020 demo onto your Xbox One and install it. To do this, go over to the “My games & apps > Games” on your Xbox One’s Store area.

After a bit of time, the demo will become available to start playing!
How to download and install for PC
PC users will usually have a bit of a longer wait to get the demo from Konami. That seems to be the case on July 30 based on comments on Twitter or in the YouTube trailer for the PES 2020 demo.
Once it becomes available for free download, gamers can head to the Steam PES search page here. The demo should become available to add to one’s cart with an official Steam account. From there, it can be downloaded and played on a compatible PC or laptop that meets the system requirements.
The demo will give gamers over a month’s time to get a handle on how the game operates as well as what they like or don’t like. The full Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 game officially launches on September 10, 2019.
