Sports Interactive and SEGA Europe have announced that the pre-release public Beta of Football Manager 2020 is available on PC and Mac. The game is set to be launched on November 19.
Anyone who has pre-purchased Football Manager 2020 from a SEGA-approved digital retailer can log into Steam and launch the Beta from their Steam library.
The pre-release Beta is a near-complete (but not quite final) version of the game, so players may encounter some bugs and issues during play. These can be reported directly to the Sports Interactive team via the ‘Report Bug’ button on the in-game sidebar.
Online play is also enabled, but there will be no access to the Steam Workshop or either the pre-game or in-game editors until the game’s full release.
With new features concentrating on player development (through the Playing Time Pathway and Development Centre) and each club’s unique identity (via Club Vision), Football Manager 2020 looks set to be the most engrossing entry in the long-running series’ history.
Single-player careers that are started on the pre-release Beta can be carried over to the full release.
If you’d like to get access to Football Manager 2020’s pre-release Beta now, it is not too late. All you need to do is pre-purchase the game on PC and Mac from a participating digital retailer between now and the game’s release on November 19, and you will see the Beta immediately added to your Steam library.
