News - FM24 Beta now available
The FM 2024 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 6th.

FM24 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.

    @simbo11: Yes, later today.

    @serkanedabasar: Well, I've seen insane transfers. Human managers are able to sell their high-profile 'deadwood' to the Saudis for bids way above the players' transfer value.

    They kicked me out of the form because I criticized the game on the sigames forum. This is what is expected from such a producer.:)
