Finally Sports Interactive released out of their workshop the January Transfer Update 13.3.0! We all expected it to be in early March, but the guys from SI surprised us yet again, what a great year to be a Football Manager fan!
So as we said, Miles Jacobson was the one who gave us the info that the official January transfer update won’t be out till early March. But the team managed to complete it at the last day of February.
All the changes made regarding Match Engine, Competitions, Game Editor etc. you can find on the official Sports Interactive Community forum.
Let’s see in brief what the lads changed with the newest update 13.3.0
Neil Brock, Sports Interactive
On behalf of everyone at Sports Interactive I’m proud to announce the release of the January Transfer Data Update, 13.3.0.
If you start a new game, you will be given an option to start with two databases, the default database (13.0) or the 13.3.0 Update. Included within are all the latest transfers and updated squads. So if you want to see Beckham strut his stuff at PSG, watch Balotelli back in Milan or lead the French revolution at Newcastle now’s your chance. To use the latest data you will need to start a new game following the update. The data is compatible with both modes, full Football Manager and Football Manager Classic.
Also included are a number of other changes and fixes within the update which, as always, are save game compatible. So if you’re in no rush to use the latest data you’re fine to continue your current save.
To update you will need to close the game down and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam. Please remember that as the data update is larger than some of our previous updates, it may take a little longer to download. Once updated the version number will be 13.3.0, more specifically the full version numbers are listed below:
Please remember as with all data updates, short-term loans are not included, and some late transfers/managerial changes or those conducted after February 1st 2013 may not be included. So for all of you starting new games or just carrying on with your long-term career save, we very much hope you enjoy playing Football Manager 2013.
Once again, if you want to see the full list of changes made, go to official Sports Interactive forum and check it our for yourself.
