Get out and enjoy that sun now because in a few weeks time there’s going to be a big reason to stay indoors.
Publisher Sega and developer Sports Interactive have at last officially announced Football Manager 2012, which will be out on PC and Mac before Christmas.
This time around over 800 new features are promised. Heavy revisions have been made to the transfer market with particular improvement on amateur and youth contracts.
Scouting has also been tweaked and several new additions have been made to the 3D match engine. Talks and conversations have been reworked, and users with a high resolution monitor will find better support for their system.
Yet another revamped tutorial mode has been promised for newcomers to the series.
“We’re delighted to finally be able to start talking about Football Manager 2012,” Sports Interactive studio director Miles Jacobson said.
“It’s another year of evolution, with some revolution thrown in for good measure so we’re pretty sure our dedicated communities, and hopefully lots of new people too, get to play and enjoy the game when it’s released later in the year.”
To date the series has sold over 7m copies worldwide and has spent a total of 108 weeks at the top of the PC charts in the UK to date.
