Surprise surprise: Football Manager 2014 announced

Surprise surprise: Football Manager 2014 announced

Football Manager 2014 - 07

In the SHOCK NEWS of the day, and have announced that Football Manager 2013 will be getting a sequel: .

Football Manager 2014 will apparently have over 1,000 improvements and enhancements, which seems like a very nebulous way of describing things because each one of those could range from “completely redid this entire section of the game” to “extra option on this menu.” Still, it’s apparently the most “compelling and realistic to date”, and is “the most feature-packed and technically advanced release in the series’ history.” Which is good. You’d hate it if it was less technically advanced than last year’s one.

Here’s a list of some of those new features, according to the press release:

  • An improved 3D match engine
  • A tactical overhaul
  • More realistic transfers and contracts
  • More sophisticated board interaction
  • More complex interaction between staff, players, and rival managers
  • A revamped news system
  • An enhanced user interface
  • Evolution for Classic mode
  • Additional community features
  • Extensive tech improvements

Slightly more specifically, this version of Football Manager 2014 will also feature cloud saving and full support for Linux. There’ll also be a Challenge Editor letting you create your own challenges, and full Steam Workshop support for those of you who want to customise and share content.

If you fancy getting in on this a bit early, those who pre-order will apparently get access to a beta version a couple of weeks before the game’s retail release, with careers started in this beta able to continue in the full version. But that would involve paying money for a game that isn’t out, which is oh-so-regularly a bad idea.

Football Manager 2014 is due out before Christmas 2013. Seven billion screenshots of menus follow.
