PES 2019 patch – how to download option files to add licenses, kits, badges and more on PS4 and PC.
A PES 2019 options file (or PES 2019 patch) allows you to fully enjoy Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 by adding the teams as if they had official licenses, although the best players in PES 2019 are officially included.
Playing Man Red instead of Manchester United or MD White instead of Real Madrid does not make a real impact on the action, although the absence of real names may affect the overall show.
Fortunately (for Playstation 4 and PC players) there is a very easy way to change those default names to the real ones.
By downloading fan-created patches to a USB stick and transferring them to PS4 (or copying them into the game files directly on PC) you can replace all unofficial teams, statuses, kits and badges in the game, which means that you can have a more visually realistic experience.

How to import PES 2019 options file to PS4
PS4 players can add a highly detailed options file to PES 2019 with a new feature that allows you to not only import the files, but to do so across multiple profiles with a single folder on a USB.
To do it on PS4 specifically, follow the instructions below (a little warning: obviously, what you download from internet forums is at your own risk, so I keep in mind before you start looking):
After following these steps, you will have the complete set with names, logos, tournaments, kits and badges, as if you were playing a fully licensed version of the game.

How to download and install the PES 2019 options file on PC
Things are different for PES 2019 PC gamers, who can install the fan-created patch in another, but also simple way. PC patches are more difficult to find just when the game comes out, but some can already be found.

One option is this patch from pes-patch.com, although we haven’t tested it on PC at the time of publishing the guide. Stay tuned for pes-patch and PES World if it still doesn’t work properly.
Another website, PTE patch, should have one soon. To install it, you must follow these steps:
This should suffice for PC gamers, but keep in mind that much more comprehensive patches will be out on PC in the coming weeks. Keep an eye on community sites like PesWorld and Pes-Patch in the days after launch.
How to get the names of teams, competitions and kits in PES 2019
Unfortunately for Xbox One owners there is no way to download and install an options file at this time. Rather than simply exporting files from a USB, Xbox One players will have to manually edit teams, competitions, and kits within the game.
Fortunately, PES 2019 includes a full in-game editor, just like last year. Go to the Edit menu, where you will find the option to manually change things like team names (we have compiled a list of real team names to save you some time) as well as competition or kit names (but not sponsors and logos) and more.
