Next-Gen Reshade For PES 2021 by RockFeller


Next-Gen Reshade v1 for PES 2021 by RockFeller. My goal was to make the game look more like it’s being transmitted on a TV, making the image smoother and with a soft light effect as seen in transmissions. Features:

  • Colors now have a “bleeding” effect, making it look less solid
  • Crowd now can be harder to see in darker areas like the top seats of a stadium, making the pitch and players be the main show
  • Skin tones now don’t look so palid or washed out, giving it a more vivid look
  • Lights now can have influence in how colors look, bouncing off the players kits
  • Anti Aliasing has been applied in some degree to mask jagged edges in areas like the crowd and players names in theirs shirts​
  • Smoother look to the whole game, overriding Konami’s default vibrant and sharp style​

If you find the menus with an odd color you can bind a key to activate/deactive the Reshade by pressing HOME key and going into Settings.
Reshade not working
If Reshade is not working, make sure all files are in the ROOT folder of PES, the folder reshade-shaders and the preset.ini should be alongside PES21.exe
Reshade Effects List
Your effects list should look like this after installing it the right way:
effect list pes2021 reshade
This preset can be GPU hungry, I’ve only tested it in a RTX 2060, which have ~60% usage in 1440p without reshade and going up to ~80% usage with the preset, you can toggle and tweak as you like by pressing the HOME key.


  1. Just tried it. It definitely altered the “softness” to the image of each character. Hope to see more from you in the future.
