SEGA has released the beta version of Football Manager 2013 on Valve’s digital distribution service, Steam. The single-player Beta version of Football Manager 13 gives access to most of the forthcoming game’s features, including the all-new Football Manager Classic mode and the short-term Challenges.
Sports Interactive’s Studio Director Miles Jacobson said:
“We had an idea that this pre-order promotion was going to be popular, but nothing prepared us for the wave of enthusiasm that we were hit with when we announced it last month. If you’ve already pre-ordered your copy, then you can start playing the Beta version right now – and if you haven’t then there’s still time, as this offer will stay good right up until the day of release.”
The Beta version will remain fully functional until Monday, November 5th, after which it will no longer be playable. However, the player will be able to continue their career without interruption, as the Beta version 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.
