Pre-order Football Manager 2013 and start playing two weeks early
You can pre-order either at your local shop or online to receive single player beta access “around” 14 days prior to the official 2 November release date. However, you’ll need to double check with your retailer to determine whether they’re part of the promotion.
Supposedly the beta edition will include the majority of the full game’s content and will be available to play until 5 November.
Importantly, you WILL be able to continue your beta saved game when you upgrade to the full version.
