Football Manager 2014 release date announced as October 31

The Football Manager 2014 release date has

been confirmed, with publisher Sega revealing the latest instalment to the much

loved franchise will land on October 31.

Letting you take to the touchline as the

manager of your own football team, the Football Manager 2014 release date will

see the game hit retailers a full month after the two leading football sims,

FIFA 14 and PES 2014 are made publically available.

Confirming the new October 31 Football

Manager 2014 release date, Sega has pegged the game as “the most feature-packed

and technically advanced release in the series’ history.”

Said to benefit from more than 1,000

enhancements over last year’s title, the Football Manager 2014 release date

will see the game become more accessible, with developer Sports Interactive

introducing cloud saves to let you access in-game progress from any computer.

“The integration of Steam’s

‘cloud save’ functionality means that managers will now be able to continue a

single career across a variety of computers, as long as they are logged into

their Steam account,” a Sports Interactive spokesperson said. “What’s more, the

cross-compatibility between the Windows PC, Mac and Linux versions means that a

single career can be continued across any and all of these platforms.”

With the October

31 Football Manager 2014 release date covering PC, Mac and Linux versions of

the game, Sega has revealed the title will benefit from full Retina display

support, as well as the option of creating and exporting YouTube highlight

packages from within the game.

As well as bringing a raft of improvements to

the computer based platforms, the Football Manager 2014 PS Vita edition will be

the first mobile version of the game to support a 3D match engine.

Discussing the mobile title Sports

Interactive stated: “The PS Vita game will also be the first handheld

version of Football Manager to feature the 3D match engine.”

The developers added: “Football

Manager Classic players will not only be able to continue a single career

across the three computer platforms, they will also be able to continue that

same career while mobile on their PS Vita (the PS Vita version of FM 2014 is

also required).”
