THE latest game in the Football Manager series arrives just in time for Christmas, and there are some new changes that some players can get for free.
Released on more platforms than ever before, it included a range of subscription services for the first time.
So if you use services like Xbox Game Pass or Apple Arcade, you can play Football Manager 2023 (FM23) at no additional cost.
It’s also the first time a Football Manager game will be available on the PlayStation 5.
Football Manager was previously available on PlayStation consoles, but not since the latest hardware was released.
There is no news on whether the game will be released on PlayStation Plus.
Studio Director Miles Jacobson said: “FM23 marks another significant step forward for the Football Manager franchise as we debut on two new platforms.
“Fans have been urging us to produce a PlayStation title for a number of years, so I’m delighted that these players are now getting the chance to have the experience that comes closest to real football manager.”
This entry also sees the return of FM23 touch – a version of Football Manager designed specifically for mobile devices.
Jacobson explained, “Our decision not to release a touch game for iOS or Android in 2021 was a difficult one to make and disappointing for some of our fans.
“This exciting partnership with Apple Arcade allows us to reintroduce a popular title in a way that makes sense to us as a studio and to the broader FM community.”
Football Manager 2023 will be released in four separate versions on November 8th, just two months after today’s announcement.
The original Football Manager 2023 will be the version for players on Windows PC and Mac via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
FM23 Mobile will be available for iOS and Android, while FM23 Touch will be released for Apple Arcade users and Nintendo Switch.
A console version of FM23 will be available for both Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5.
