However you feel about Steam achievements, they are by far one of the largest additions to Football Manager ever made. Achievements extend the play time on our favourite footy simulation, and give us that warm feeling inside whenever ‘ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED’ pops up.
If you're anything like me, you've probably wondered what exactly are Steam Achievements? Do they have a deeper purpose, or are they here just to boost our moral a bit and keep us playing more Football Manager?
What are Steam Achievements?
Steam Achievements are rewards for completing game objectives or performing pre-determined actions in a Football Manager. The Steam Community Overlay will notify you when you have unlocked an achievement in Steam. Your achievements can be viewed in the game's main menu or through the stats in the Steam Community.
What is the point of Football Manager 2018 Steam Achievements?
Prepare yourself for disappointment if you were looking for a deeper meaning to achievements. Other than the bragging rights within the Football Manager community, there is no other purpose for collecting Steam achievements. They will not add up to Football Manager leader-board, nor will they unlock some hidden features in the game.
How many Steam achievements for Football Manager there is?
For the current version, Football Manager 2018, there is a total of 77 Steam achievements to be collected playing both the regular version and online game.
