Fans who pre-order Football Manager 2013 to be rewarded with access to a fully-playable Beta version of the game roughly two weeks before launch
SEGA and Sports Interactive today announced that Football Manager 2013, the next installment in the Football Manager series, is scheduled to be available for Windows PC and Mac on November 2nd, 2012. If you pre-order or pre-purchase Football Manager 2013 - either boxed or as a digital download - you will receive a unique code giving access to a pre-release, single-player Beta version of the game around 14 days prior to the official launch date.
The Beta version of Football Manager 13 will give access to most of the forthcoming game's features, including the all-new Football Manager Classic mode and the short-term Challenges. The Beta version will remain fully functional until Monday, November 5th, after which it will no longer be playable. But the Beta version's saved games will be fully compatible with the final release, so none of the player's progress over the pre-release period will be lost.
