Like last year, the Beta allows for online play.
As always, careers can be carried forward, so you won't lose the progress you make during the Beta when the game updates upon final release, which is November 4th.
FM17 pre-game data editor, Steam workshop and the in-game store will not be active during beta.
If you haven’t yet pre-purchased Football Manager 2017, you can do so now and get immediate Beta access.

ImportantBefore you dive in, be aware that the Beta is not the finished product and certain aspects of game play may well change ahead of final release on November 4th. If you do spot any issues, please report these immediately on SI forum.
At this stage, it is unclear whether online multi-player games will carry forward into full release, but single player games will do for sure.
