New additions in PES Datapack 6.0 Update
1. Player Faces
KONAMI teased the updates of faces in the game of some players namely Neymar, Ronaldo and others in them being under a minute clips via their Twitter and Instagram account. These major changes were expected because players did engage in changes with their hairstyles, especially Neymar, who coloured his hair to pink and along with the faces in the game were not updated even after a long time. But after the PES Datapack 6.0 Update, around 50-60 players have their faces updated in game, make sure to check them out.
However, some players have a computer-generated face now, who previously had their original image. This might be because of the recent transfers that happened (January).

2. Manager Portraits
Interestingly, KONAMI has updated the Manager appearances to most of the managers who were licensed and yet didn’t feature a face in the game. With the recent PES Datapack 6.0 update, we can identify most of the managers of licensed teams having images representing them. Quique Setien and Mikel Arteta are some prominent names in the list.
3. Team Kits and Crests
PES Datapack 6.0 update also includes the updates of new kits of their five partner clubs, which they announced in their official Instagram account. These clubs are of different leagues and are licensed in PES 2020. Because of this, newer and better kits are available in the game for use. Adding to this, squads have their emblems updated in the PES Datapack 6.0 Update.
Adding to that, fresh kits of two licensed leagues in PES have been updated. The Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A and the TOYOTA Thai League Clubs are updated with teams of these league having new kits in the game.
4. New Iconic Moments
PES Datapack 6.0 update has introduced two more Iconic Moment Series Legends, which are to be released accordingly as Special Agents. Ruud Gullit and Franz Beckenbauer will be featured as Iconic Moment Legends in the game. Adding to that, two versions of Ronaldinho, Dennis Bergkamp, Tomas Rosicky and Arjen Robben are being added to the game, which is scheduled to release later on.

No. of Matches – Event
This issue was fixed during the update.
There were a number of fixes from KONAMI during the Patch update (1.06.00) and datapack update, mentioned in the official site as follows:
An issue where the stat boost that Iconic Moment Series players receive through the team-matching mechanic was not reflected in the overall Team Strength of squads used in myClub matches. (The ‘team-matching mechanic’ is activated when your Base Team matches the player’s registered team.)
An issue where playing myClub Co-op with more than one user on a team sometimes resulted in multiple copies of the same Legend and Iconic Moment Series players being assigned to the same squad.
An issue where a stat boost was not applied to players from the Iconic Moment Series despite playing them with the correct Base Team. The issue occurred if you enter a vs COM or vs COM Challenge Cup match immediately after opening myClub mode.
A variety of minor adjustments have been made to each mode and match to improve the overall gaming experience.
