News - FM23 Beta now available
The FM 2023 Beta is now available to play for those who have pre-purchased from a participating retailer such as our store.

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 9th.

FM23 free tools (pre-game data editor, resource archiver), Steam workshop and the in-game store will not be active during beta.

Bear in mind that the Beta doesn't allow for online play as the online modes are disabled.
