Winning Eleven 2012 (WE2012) is the 11th edition in the Pro Evolution Soccer video game series developed and published by Konami and is available for Android devices. It is an upgrade on the previous year’s PES 2011.
We all know about the more recent iterations of the Pro Evolution Soccer games. As a matter of fact, the latest version of the PES soccer game, PES 2018, is already out on the Google Play Store. However, not many realize that the older versions of the game were really amazing.
One such example is the World Soccer: Winning Eleven 2012 game, or simply WE2012. This was one of the popular games by Konami to be released on both gaming consoles and mobile devices.
About Winning Eleven 2012
WE2012 was just the name for the Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 game in some parts of the world. It was an upgrade on the previous year’s PES 2011, with several new features, including Quick Play Mode and Free Kick mode.
Both modes were created to ensure that you do not spend too much time fiddling about with the settings; you could literally just select a team and start laying in Quick Play mode, and you don’t even need to play a real match in Free Kick mode.
This game had one defining characteristic when it was first released. When WE2012 was first released, it could be played on any Android or iOS device. Even if the device was an older version, the game would scale itself down to accommodate it.
Thus, one could get amazing graphics on any device. Of course, nowadays with the advanced graphic properties of our smartphones, there’s no need for the game to scale itself down anymore.
Winning Eleven has since moved on from the 2012 version. Since then, there have been various modifications made by third parties, who released the game as later versions.
For example, there have been Winning Eleven 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Note that these are merely modifications of the original Winning Eleven 2012 game.
