Game Info

GAME NAME: Football Manager 2013

DEVELOPER(S): Sports Interactive


GENRE(S): Sports, simulator

RELEASE DATE(S): 2 November


Sports Interactive and SEGA have just announced that gamers who pre-order Football Manager 2013 for PC or Mac will get early access to a beta of the game. The beta will be available a full two weeks ahead of the title's release.

“Our fans are very good at letting us know what they want and the one thing that’s consistently at the top of their wish list is an earlier release date,” says Sports Interactive’s Studio Director Miles Jacobson. “While we can’t, strictly speaking, offer them exactly what they want, this Beta version is the next best thing… a fully playable Football Manager they can get their hands on around two weeks before the finished game hits the streets.”

The Beta version will be distributed via code to those who've pre-ordered, and it will "remain fully functional until Monday, November 5th, after which it will no longer be playable," said SEGA. More importantly, "the Beta version’s saved games will be fully compatible with the final release, so none of the player’s progress over the pre-release period will be lost," SEGA also confirmed.

Football Manager 2013 is available on both PC and Mac from 2 November.
