    Game Information

    Football Manager. Always.

    Football Manager is the best-selling, most realistic football management series ever made. Football Manager 2013 celebrates 20 years of games from the people at Sports Interactive by introducing an array of new features.

    This year’s version allows you to take control of any club in more than 50 nations across the world and includes all of Europe’s biggest leagues as well as database of over 500,000 real-world players and staff.

    As well as some landmark new features in the Career Mode, there are now new ways to enjoy your Football Manager experience.


    NEW TO CAREER MODE…

    Match Engine
    The 3D match engine has seen huge improvements this year. Everything on the pitch looks more realistic; from the stadiums, the players’ movement, intelligence, and the way the ball moves through the air.

    We’ve also introduced hundreds of new animations to make the game feel more realistic and we’ve made the whole experience more televisual by introducing new camera angles and showing the kick-off and final whistle.

    Manager Roles
    Another notable difference is the significant restructure of the manager’s staff and a revamp of their roles. The most obvious is that we’ve introduced the position of Director of Football into the game for the first time, which will allow managers to pass on some of their workload, such as contract negotiations, if they choose to.

    In addition to this, we’ve also increased the number of specialist coaching roles within the game and given the manager greater flexibility to choose which coaches offer advice and when. The manager can also choose to complain about boardroom interference – although that particular option should probably be used sparingly.

    And much more…
    A brand new training system, improved international management, tones in press conferences & a new user interface.


    NEW WAYS TO PLAY…

    Classic and Challenge Modes
    Football Manager Classic is a less time-consuming way to enjoy Football Manager. The essence of the game is exactly the same – the manager still takes charge of a squad of players and competes at whatever level he or she chooses – but they will now find that a number of their responsibilities have either been taken over by their support staff or have disappeared completely.

    For example, while the player still takes charge of training in FMC, this is carried out at a 'full team' level only – there's no individual player training. And when it gets to matches themselves, there are no team talks or opposition reports... you just go straight to a game using the same 3D match engine as Career Mode. The games are played out in a quicker 'highlights only' fashion, but you can even speed this up by going straight to ‘Instant Result’.

    Players who opt for Football Manager Classic will also find that they have a couple of further options in terms of how they play the game; they can either play a full open-ended ‘Career’ or they can choose to play in the new ‘Challenge’ mode.

    In Challenge mode they’ll find themselves in a particular situation which will test their management skills over a shorter game time – usually half a season. Can you win a trophy with a team consisting almost entirely of kids? Or could you guide your club to safety despite being bottom of the table at Xmas?

    We first introduced Challenge Mode in Football Manager Handheld 2012 and it proved to be so popular that we’ve decided to include it in FMC too.

    The game will come with four free-to-play challenges, each of which feeds in to a global leaderboard.

    Network Play
    The brand new Network Play is fully integrated with Steam’s network functionality which means that players should be able to set up and enjoy games against their friends far more easily than before. The Network Mode also allows people to set-up special one-off leagues and cups and to import their team from their career mode, so you can now end any debate about whose FM team is better.

    The deeper integration with Steam will also allow us to manage worldwide leaderboards, so, for the first time you’ll really know how good a manager you are.

    Plus over 900 other new features!

    Pre-ordered through Steam. You can usually download the game a day before release so you can play straight away on release day.

    Looooong way to go.

    Out before X-mas and by the time patches are out, it'll be like February.

    It's gonna be an amazing game as always but it's just too far away to get excited.

    It is the same every year, they just seem to get later and later in regards to release date.

    They will still sell shit loads when it does release but would just be nice for an early October release.

    I would save yourself £10 and get it at Green Man Gaming.

    But then I am no hurry to wait 12 hours to play it.

    I remember last year I originally pre ordered FM12 from elsewhere and I was really pissed off when they messed up my CD key and I couldn't download it at midnight. Lessons have been learned so I think I'll stick with Steam.

    I purchase mine last year from getgamesgo, they sent me my key as soon as I could pre-load the game.

    But then I am not bothered about when I get the key I am sure I will get it on launch day + will only be about 3GB so can download it in about 30 mins.

    Yeah I preordered my copy from Green Man Gaming, so basically we get to play the game instead of the demo.
    Sounds pretty good, bet loads of people start preordering it now.

    Should be before Friday as the game is available to play from then if you pre-ordered it.

    I don't have my key yet but should arrive today.
