A free Copa Santander Libertadores content update will be released for PES 2012 this Friday, Konami has announced.

Released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, the update promises to enhance the game's use of the Copa Santander Libertadores licence.

The DLC will introduce a dedicated Copa Santander Libertadores 2012 game mode, with all the 38 teams, rosters and the official ball for the 2012 competition brought fully up to date.

The update also refines "selected parts of the game" which is said to offer a more fluid in-game experience.

News of the DLC comes shortly after Konami lifted the lid of PES 2013.
