Football Manager 2018, the latest entry in the series of football club management simulators, is now available for pre-order on Steam. The games allow players the opportunity to manage their own football clubs, similar to the career mode in FIFA games where players do the same thing along with playing games.
While we don’t know anything about the game for the time being (Sega is apparently going to wait until September to actually official reveal the game and give us some actual information about it) we do know that there will be a mobile game coming along with it.
Football Manager 2018 Touch isn’t going to be as detailed as the main game (it will only focus on team tactics and trading players) but will apparently be included for free with the main game. With it only focusing on team tactics and trading players, the seasons will progress faster and you don’t have to balance your team’s performance with the media attention that comes with it.
If you preorder the game, you’ll be able to play it before anyone else as you go through the preseason period in the game’s beta. Any progress that’s made during that beta period will also carry over to the actual game, so you can get a leg up on other teams if you decide to pre-order it.
Currently you can pre-order Football Manager 2018 for 54.99 euros or your regional equivalent, and if you want to pre-order Football Manager 2018 Touch, you can pre-order that on Steam for 29.99 euros.
So, if you’re one of the sorts of gamers that enjoy playing management simulators, all you have to do is wait until September to see everything that Sega has planned for the upcoming Football Manager game. Hopefully Sega Sports Interactive can make the game engrossing and make it better than Football Manager 2017, the game’s immediate predecessor.
