For those of you that have pre-ordered Football Manager 2014 from the participating retailers listed on our website, you are now able to download the Beta version of FM14 from Steam using the code provided to you when you pre-ordered.
If you haven’t already pre-ordered, you can still do so now and be playing the Beta version straight away. Click to order now.
If you pre-ordered in a participating store, you should have been given a unique code at point of pre order. This may have been an FM14 branded card where the code would be printed on the reverse, or it may have been printed on your till receipt
If you pre-ordered online, for a boxed copy to be delivered, then you will have been emailed your code.
Digital pre-orders (Steam)
If you pre-ordered from Steam, then your Beta download should automatically start when you launch the game from your Steam library.
Digital pre-orders (non-Steam)
If you pre-ordered a digital download, then your code will have been sent to you via email.
As always, you will need to have downloaded Steam and created an account - if you haven't done that yet, you can do so here.
Once you've launched and logged into Steam, follow these instructions:
1. On the top toolbar, click 'Games'
2. From the drop down, select 'Activate a Product on Steam'
3. Follow the instructions to input your code and install the FM14 Beta
If you've pre-ordered the game and NOT received your code, then please check with your chosen retailer at point of purchase in the first instance, if your issue is not resolved then please contact SEGA customer services on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any other questions about the pre-order, please check the FAQ.
We hope you enjoy the Beta of FM14 and thank you to all those that pre-ordered.
Remember, this is not the finished version of the game, and certain aspects may change or be updated in time for full release on October 31st.
