Sports Interactive have announced a release date to their latest management sim – Football Manager 2014.
Sports Interactive Announce October Release Date For FM 2014
Miles Jacobson , the man behind the fan favourite Football Manager games, has announced the latest addition to the series will be released on October 31st.
The series is known for its incredibly huge database of players along with its incredible level of depth allowing players to experience life as a Football Manager. Each year the series is updated with a newer and more realistic database,engine along with other major and minor additions.
According to developer Sports Interactive, they fully believe they have created the “most authentic” football management sim yet and claim there are over 1000 upgrades in the newest release.
Football Manager 2014 To Be More “Accessible”
Football Manager 2013 was the most popular entry to date and no doubt Sports Interactive will be hoping to match that success with FM2014. Last years release showed longer playtimes and a 20% increase in sales.
Many believe this was down to the addition of the “Classic Mode” which streamlined the game reducing some of the more complex elements that had built up over the years and alienated some gamers.
Again Sports Interactive have taken steps to increase accesibility this year including adding a zoom option which will allow the game to work better with Steams “Big Picture” push.
Football Manager Coming to PlayStation Vita
Football Manager will also be making an appearance on the Playstation Vita this year as announced at the recent Gamescom event in Germany.
They game will feature the previously mentioned streamlined “Classic Mode”.
The most impressive feature however is that you will be able to take your PC save file on the go.
“The best thing about all of this is that not only will you now get to play Football Manager Classic on a PS Vita but, for the first time ever, if you have the game on PC, Mac or Linux, you’ll be able to play the game across all platforms.
“Play the game at home on your computer, upload the saved game to the cloud, download on your PS Vita, and continue to play on the bus. Anytime, any place, anywhere.” Jacobson recently blogged.
