For those of you that haven't pre-ordered FM13, we’re pleased to let you know that you can now play the demo version by downloading on Steam.
For instructions on how to do this, please visit http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/322233-Football-Manager-2013-Demo-OUT-NOW!?p=8199605#post8199605
The demo lasts for 6 in-game months and, as with the beta, you can carry on your save when you have the full game. If you have any feedback or technical issues, please report them on http://community.sigames.com/
You can still pre-order the game from our shop and get access to beta right up until full release on November 2nd. Plus if you order now, you'll get a nice 25% discount on your purchase of the game.
Try out the DEMO, and if you like it order the Beta version of the game.

"We’re pleased to announce the Football Manager 2013 Demo is now available to download via Steam. As with previous years, the demo will allow you to get half a season of Football Manager game-time in before it ends. Then, if the user wishes, that save game can eventually be loaded into the full retail version of FM13 and continued.
For the first time ever, this year’s version contains a half season version of Football Manager and Football Manager Classic. The FM version allows you to choose one ‘quick start’ league to play, whilst FMC will allow you to choose three leagues to run from the start, exactly like you’ll find in the full game.
As the demo is only available via Steam, you will need to have a Steam account to play. If you haven’t done this yet, you can do so here –http://store.steampowered.com/about/
Then, when Steam is installed and you’ve created an account, follow the instructions below:
1 – Launch Steam and sign into your account
2 – In the search bar, type Football Manager 2013 Demo (alternatively go directly to the game here - http://store.steampowered.com/app/207890/)
3 – On the right hand side, click the ‘DOWNLOAD DEMO’ button (you may need to scroll down to see this)
4 – Follow the instructions to complete the download
5 – Once downloaded, launch the game and it’ll install and load up.
If you have any issues launching the game, please verify your game cache as shown in the link below:
If you encounter any type of 'Virus' message when attempting to run the game, this is a false positive. There are no viruses within the FM.exe. We very much suggest adding the FM.exe to your exceptions list. This issue has been encountered when running Avira and Avast!
We very much hope you enjoy our FM13 Demo, please feel free to leave feedback within our forum feedback thread found here –http://community.sigames.com/showthr...02#post8199602
