Football Manager 2013 Release Date Announced

SEGA have announced that the latest installment in the addictive Football Manager series will be released worldwide on November 2 for PC and MAC. Those who pre-order the game in advance will receive a code for a single-player Beta version, available two full weeks before the game’s launch.

This Beta version will remain playable until November 5, and all saved games and progress made during the pre-release period will be fully compatible with the final release. Speaking about the decision to offer earlier access, Sports Interactive’s studio director Miles Jacobson said:

“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. 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.”

According to the Football Manager 2013 site, the game will see improvements in the match and training system, as well as manager and specialist coaching roles.

Here is the complete Press Release Statement from SEGA and Sports Interactive:

KICK-OFF SET FOR NOVEMBER 2ND…

OR EVEN EARLIER FOR FANS WHO PRE-ORDER

Fans who pre-order Football Manager 2013 to be rewarded with access to a fully-playable Beta version of the game roughly two weeks before launch

September 28th 2012

Sports Interactive and SEGA, the developer and publisher behind the best-selling Football Manager series, are pleased to announce the release date for this year’s game. Football Manager 2013 will be released across the world on Friday, November 2nd.

And for those fans who can’t wait until then, there’s even better news. Anyone who pre-orders this year’s game through a participating retail partner will be rewarded with something almost priceless… early access to a fully-playable version of the game.

Any fan who pre-orders (or pre-purchases) Football Manager 2013 – either boxed or as a digital download – will receive a unique code giving access to a pre-release, single-player ‘Beta’ version of the game around 14 days prior to the official launch date.

“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 of Football Manager 13 will give access to most of the forthcoming game’s features, including the all-new Football Manager Classic mode and the short-term Challenges (for more information, go to http://www.footballmanager.com/features).

The Beta version will remain fully functional until Monday, November 5th, after which it will no longer be playable. However, 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.

Football Manager 2013 will be published by SEGA for Windows PC and Mac on November 2nd 2012. Further information on the game’s new and enhanced features is currently being unveiled in a series of video blogs which can be viewed on the official website, http://www.footballmanager.com.

EA Sports Announces FIFA Manager 13 And Release Screenshots

EA Sports have announced FIFA Manager 13 and you can find out all the new features, as well as the new screenshots in the press release by EA below… 

FIFA Manager 13 Press Release:

EA announced today that EA SPORTS and Bright Future will offer a range of dynamic new features that will enable fans to perfect the art of team management in EA SPORTS FIFA MANAGER 13, which launches in Autumn 2012.

FIFA MANAGER 13 introduces Team Dynamics, a new feature that brings the role of the trainer to life, encouraging players to pay close attention to relationships, egos and goals of individuals within the team. As the trainer, you get an overview of team hierarchy, rivalry, personality clashes, personal goals, and much more. New individual player objectives have a special role, and your team will only be successful with enough team leaders and everyone working towards the same objectives. Two new features called Team Matrix and Hierarchy Pyramid enables fan to quickly identify which players are having challenges and their impact on team dynamics. From balancing player rivalries to spending enough time understanding and setting player expectations, FIFA MANAGER 13 will push you to perfect the art of team management.

Once again, the transfer market is the heartbeat of FIFA MANAGER 13. Players now consider more than 40 criteria when making their decision on whether or not to transfer to a new club. From the new menu item Next Season Planner you can plan your future team in detail, see the impact of integrating potential newcomers into your existing team and try out new players.

The game also takes a visual leap forward with higher resolution graphics, numerous new fan banners that create a livelier atmosphere in the stadiums, and fans now wear shirts, scarves and jackets that show off their team colours, just like real life. Plus, the 3D game option has been refined, and tactical orders and individual instructions to players now have seamless settings which enable gamers to further fine-tune their tactical plans.

The successful campaign “Your Feature!” introduced last year that enables fans of the series to help design the game is back, and fans can go to http://www.fifa-manager.com/13 to suggest and vote for features. In voting thus far, several thousand participants have chosen features such as “Regional Talent Scouts”, “Buy-back Options” and “Shooting Stars During The Season” for development in FIFA MANAGER 13. More voting will take place in the coming weeks.
