Sports Interactive has announced the official release date of Football Manager 2013, and also released details of a beta bonus for pre-orders.
The game will release globally on November 2, anyone who pre-orders the game will be granted access to a fully functional beta version. The beta includes most of the final game’s features including the new Classic Mode and Challenges. This free-trial will remain active until November 5 and all save files will be transferable to the full game.
“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.”
