Konami will release a free-to-play version of its annual football sim, Pro Evolution Soccer 2016, exclusively for PS3 and PS4 on December 8.
The release of the "entry-level" edition of PES will mark one of the first times a studio has chosen to release a freemium version of a big-budget console title post-launch.
When it hits shelves, players will be gain access to Pro Evo's exhibition, training, and offline/online multiplayer modes, featuring seven teams including Bayern Munich, Juventus, AS Roma, Brazil and France.
More importantly, Konami will also be giving freemium users unlimited access to the game's myClub online mode, where they'll be able to build a team by signing players using in-game currency and micro-transactions.
The free-to-play edition will be compatible with all future gameplay and content updates.
