The hardcore management sim (well known to inspire manic devotion from fans who regularly don suits for their in-game FA Cup final ties), will be getting over 1,000 new improvements in its latest annual iteration, including an improved 3D match engine, cloud-based game saves, Steam Workshop integration for mods and custom content and more.
For the first time ever, the game will also be available on Linux platforms, while last season’s Football Manager Classic mode (the “lite” version of the game designed to be less time consuming) also returns.
“Our unchanging goal in the development of the Football Manager series is to deliver the most authentic and immersive simulation of real-world football management wherever you may be in the world,” said Miles Jacobson, Sports Interactive’s studio director.
“Players can now take charge of their team anywhere they can access a home computer, and with huge improvements to existing features plus the addition of loads of new stuff, can have the best Football Manager experience to date while doing so.”
While a release date hasn’t been given yet, Jacobson has announced that he’ll be revealing 50 of the games new features every day via his Twitter account. You can follow him at www.twitter.com/milesSI.
