The beta for Football Manager 2013 has just gone live. It means that players have access to getting starting with their careers two weeks prior to the official launch of the game. So it will give them an obvious head start.
Only fans that have pre-ordered or pre-purchased the game, can take advantage of the offer. It will roll out with the majority of features in the game, and includes the Football Manager Classic mode as well as short-term Challenges.
On Monday, November 5th, the beta will terminate - but that’s when all data that has been reaped from it can be continued onto the main game.
