PES 2020 patch – how to download option files to add licenses, kits, badges and more on PS4 and PC.

A PES 2020 options file (or PES 2020 patch) allows you to fully enjoy Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 by adding the teams as if they had official licenses, although the best players in PES 2020 (here is the list of those from last year while we create this edition) 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-made patches onto a USB stick and transferring them to PS4 (or copying them into game files directly on PC) you can replace all unofficial teams, statuses, kits and badges in the game, which means you can have a more visually realistic experience.

How to import PES 2020 options file to PS4

PS4 players can add a highly detailed options file to PES 2020 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 starting to search):

  • Format a USB pen drive to FAT 32
  • Create a folder on the USB called WEPES
  • Find a file of options by searching the internet. A popular option is PES World, but it is not yet active at the time of writing this guide. The one we have found is the pes-patch that we link here.
  • If it comes as a compressed file, unzip it into the WEPES folder. If not, just move all the downloaded files to the WEPES folder.
  • Plug the USB into your PS4 and open PES 2020.
  • Go to the menu “Edit”, “Data Management”, “Import / Export”.
  • Select “Import Equipment”, tick all the boxes on the “Select File” page and continue. The next page is “Detailed Settings”; here you must leave all the boxes unchecked.
  • The files will be added automatically. The more teams / leagues you add, the longer it will take.
  • Make sure to hit “Save” on the “Data Management” page that will appear at the end of the process and you will almost be done.
  • Tournament achievements must be added by hand. Go back to “Data Management”, “Import / Export”, “Import images.”
  • Then select “Competition Logos” under “Import Images.”
  • Select all individual images (not folders) and press OK.
  • You will have to edit each competition manually on the “Competition Category” pages that follow importing logos.
  • Note: PES 2020 has just come out, so we are still investigating if the steps above are exactly the same in PES 2020. In theory they should be the same as in PES 2019.

    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 2020 options file on PC

    Things are different for PES 2020 PC players, who can install the fan-created patch in another, but also simple way. PC patches are more difficult to find right 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:

  • Download the patch.
  • Follow the instructions that are given to you once downloaded.
  • When the installer asks you for a folder to export the content to on your PC, select the place where you have installed the game. For Steam players, the usual thing is that it is in C: Steam SteamApps Common Pro Evolution Soccer 2020 (if it is not on your main hard drive, you could change the “C” for another letter).
  • Check if the installation has worked by going to the “Edit” menu as you would to install it on PS4 and go to the “Computers” menu to check if everything is correct.
  • Note: PES 2020 has just come out, so we are still investigating if the steps above are exactly the same in PES 2020. In theory they should be the same as in PES 2019.

    This should suffice for PC gamers, but keep in mind that much more complete 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.

    Looking for more PES 2020 guides? On this page we tell you how to download option files to add licenses, kits, badges and more, we also have a list with the real names of the teams and the list of player scores with the best Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders and Forwards.

    How to get the names of teams, competitions and kits in PES 2020

    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 2020 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’ve 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.
