According to sources within the Neoseeker Community (looking your direction, IcarusAbides) Football Manager 2014's preorder exclusive beta is now available. Well, it began yesterday, but just like playing the game itself news tends to move a little slow, okay? Depending on which retailer you've preordered your copy of FM14 from you should have been provided an online code. Visit Sports Interactive's website, redeem your code, and start playing today!
If you're unsure about preordering for the beta, here's what's included according to the game's official FAQ:
"The career mode, and new Classic mode including Challenge mode will all be playable in the beta. However it is not the full and final version, so some elements will not be activated until you install the pre ordered copy."
Football Manager 2014 will have its full, official release on October 31, because nothing's more terrifying than the reality of losing weeks playing a football simulation game. I kid, I kid, but really please don't hurt me y'all hooligans.
