Just to be sure here is also official post on Facebook from Football Manager page;
So there you have it FM13 is out at Friday 2nd November at 00:01 GMT.
Miles Jacobson, director of Sports Interactive, is very pleased to be able to announce the following...
I’m really excited to be able to announce that the release date for Football Manager 2013 on PC & Mac will be Friday November 2nd at 00.01 GMT – that’ll be the time we’ll turn on the Steam servers to allow people to start playing the game.
This year we also have a very special reward for those people who have pre-ordered the game from participating retailers – you’ll actually get to play a version of the game 2 weeks upfront.
So, 2 weeks before release those who have pre-ordered (from participating retailers, which I’ll have to repeat every time for legally type reasons) you’ll be able to download a beta version of the game which will be very close to the final game, and play to your hearts’ content. The beta will include FM, classic mode & challenges, but will not include the network game.
This beta version will be playable until Monday November 5th, so if your game doesn’t turn up until Monday’s post, you’ll still be able to play, but you’ll need to install the finished game after that point.
Saved games will be compatible with the final game.
You can find a list of participating digital, online & bricks and mortar retailers who are participating in the pre-order reward scheme here.
As an extra special bonus, people who buy FIFA13 (PS3 & Xbox 360) from GAME retail outlets in the UK and pre-order FM13 from them at the same time will get a voucher for L5 off the retail price of FM13 on its release. This offer is only available til the shops close on Monday 1st October.
Thank you, as always, for your continued support.
So there you have it, order the game now from the participating retailers and you can play the beta version of the game 2 weeks before it is released!
We can also expect to play the DEMO of the game 2 weeks or a week before the official release of the game.
Stay tuned for more info!
