How much will Football Manager 2023 cost?

The price for Football Manager 2023 has not been revealed yet. Last year’s Football Manager 2022 was priced at £39.99 in the UK and $54.99  in the U.S and the rates are not expected to undergo a massive change.

When it comes to the stores, Football Manager 2023 can be purchased available to buy as a PC or Mac download via Epic or Steam  and the official Sega store, as well as the Microsoft store.

What devices will Football Manager 2023 be on?

Football Manager 2023 will be available to play on PC, Mac, Xbox devices and PlayStation 5. FM23 Touch will be available to play on Android and Apple devices (through Apple Arcade).

The PS5 and Xbox version of the game is known as FM23 Console (having previously been called the Xbox Edition)

Football Manager chief Miles Jacobson described the addition of PlayStation and Apple devices as “another significant step forward” for the game.

“Fans have been calling for us to produce a PlayStation title for a number of years, so I’m excited for those players to now get the chance to experience the closest thing to being a real football manager,” said Jacobson.

“Our decision to not release a Touch game on iOS or Android in 2021 was a difficult one to take and a disappointing one for some of our fans. This exciting partnership with Apple Arcade allows us to reintroduce a popular title in a way that makes sense for us as a studio and for the wider FM community.”

What new features will Football Manager 2023 have?

The Football Manager 2023 could see a host of new featured added into the game and will hope to satisfy the video game’s huge fanbase.

One of the biggest news the fans are waiting for is the possible return of Serie A giants Juventus as one of the playable clubs in the game.

Konami has announced that Juventus’ licensing deal with eFootball is coming to an end and this could pave way for the Old Lady getting back into managerial simulation game. For years, players have had to choose the alternate version of Juventus in the game, a team named Zebre.

Aside from the overall enhanced gameplay, integration of women’s football into the game’s database is another feature that the fans are hoping to see in FM23.

The developers behind Football Manager have been building a database and technology for women’s football for a number of years, but it is not clear if it will be ready to roll out in time for FM23.
