You can still pre-purchase FM15 at our official store at any time between now and November 7th and get access to the beta version.
Important: You are actually buying the full game which will be released on 7 November, but you get to play the beta now as a free bonus for your pre-purchase. The beta is not a demo, it's a full game (not final but full).
Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat exactly is this FM15 pre-purchase?
Anyone who pre-purchases the game through our official store will be emailed a code which will allow early beta access to the game. The early access period is roughly 2 weeks (from now til November 7th) – so allowing people who pre-purchase to start playing an early pre-release version of the game two weeks before its actual release as a product.
What is this beta version?
The beta version is a full version of the game with 2 main limitations: no network games and no pre-game editor. It has small known issues that will be fixed when final version is released on November 7th.
The career mode and Classic mode including Challenge mode will all be playable in the beta.
Is this the Demo?
No, it's NOT the demo. It's a pre-release version of the game and you can play as much as you like, there is no season limit or anything. The demo will be released a couple of days before the final game release, so around 4 November.
