SEGA has announced that the Football Manager 2021 Beta is now live on the Epic Games Store and Steam. As the press release reads, this beta will give managers the chance to kick their career off early.
The pre-release Beta is a near-complete (but not quite final) version of the game. As such, players may encounter some bugs and issues during play.
What’s also interesting here is that the beta supports online play. However, there won’t be any access to the Steam Workshop or either the pre-game or in-game editors until the game’s full release on November 24th.
Football Manager 2021 introduces a raft of new features and notable improvements across a wide variety of areas.
Managers will enjoy more control than ever over their team’s success on and off the pitch with new gameplay systems, an increased level of analysis and information and additional resources at their disposal.
Sports Interactive has overhauled all interactions with players and the media. As such, the game aims to provide a more true-to-life experience. Furthermore, matchdays will look and feel more spectacular with a host of graphical and presentation improvements as well as new pre-and post-match events. Additionally, managers will have more power over player recruitment and new ways to celebrate success at the end of the season.
Single-player careers started on the FM21 Beta can be carried across to the full game.
