Football Manager returns with more than 1,000 improvements and availability for Linux for the first time ever.

Set to launch some time before Christmas, Sports Interactive and Sega claims the tenth title in the series is the most authentic to date.

In addition to enhanced gameplay, Football Manager 2014 delivers a range of technical innovations, with the introduction of ‘cloud save’ technology, meaning managers can now pursue a single career from any computer, anywhere in the world.

With the integration of Steam Workshop tools, the game is more customisable than ever before. There’s custom competitions and tailor-made in-game challenges available with the game’s free-to-download pre-game editor.

Other game highlights include:

  • 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

Gamers can pre-order Football Manager 2014 from participating retailers to receive early access to a fully playable beta version of the game, which will be available around two weeks before the official release.

@footballmanager will be tweeting details about an array of new Football Manager features each week leading up to the launch.
