FM18 features video transcript

Jack Peachman is an artist at Sports Interactive’s sister studio, Creative Assembly.
So with the match engine, it’s such an important element of Football Manager and in Football Manager 2018 I’m hearing that big overhauls will be coming to the AI new tactical options for managers to use, as well as some new player roles.
I’ve heard of a new graphics engine in the works. Maybe this is the year, new motion capture animation, perhaps making its way in as well.
And on top of that, I know for a fact that Creative Assembly artists have been working on some other, unannounced, changes, that we hopefully will see in the not so distant future.

Curtis Morton, better known as The GamerCan, is a popular football Youtuber.
I hope I don't get in trouble for this, but I've spent quite a bit of time at SI HQ over the last few weeks and kept hearing the word Dynamics. I'm not sure what it means but I get the impression it's big.
I also heard a conversation in the toilet of all places that Scouting is being completely revamped in line with how real clubs actually find players, and I understand that Data Analysts are now central to this which is great - as they brought them in last year and they didn't really do anything.
I'm also looking forward to seeing how SI handle the insane rise in transfer fees that we've witnessed in this transfer window.
And before I forget - when I was leaving SI the other day I bumped into a guy who said "you're that streamer aren't you?" "I think you're going to like this year's Fantasy Draft", so I take it there's been some improvements there.

The one buzzword that keeps coming up is “Dynamics”, which is going to be the most significant innovation.

Miles Jacobson, the Football Manager gaffer.
The scouting system is going to change to better reflect how real clubs recruit players. Improved stadium designs and match presentation. Increased depth to sports science and tactics, alongside the new graphics engine.
“Dynamics” is one of our big new features for this year. I’m not quite ready to talk about that one yet. We’re going to have a series of videos that’s going to come out in the next month. Which will include the stuff you’ve already asked about.
Also, sports scientists, new-look Fantasy Drafts, AI improvements, both on and off the pitch, some tactics improvements as well and lots more besides.
