Football Manager 2023 (PC/Mac), Football Manager 2023, Football Manager 2023 Mobile (iOS/Android) and Football Manager 2023 Touch (Apple Arcade and Nintendo Switch™) were all released worldwide on Tuesday, November 8th. For the first time in the series’ history, a Football Manager title was launched on the Apple Arcade platform with FM23 Touch returning to iOS devices on November 8th.
Since its release, FM23 has been met with a positive reaction from both fans and media, who’ve praised it for its smooth gameplay. It has also become the fastest title in series history to record more than two million unique players.
NEW FOR THIS SEASON
FM23’s key new features were designed with the aim of moving the studio ever closer to its goal of making the most realistic simulation of football possible.
Our extensive contacts within the footballing world drove our Recruitment revamp, with the tweaks to Scouting and the introduction of the Squad Planner based on the way real clubs set about targeting, identifying and shaping their squads for the current season, the next one and the one after.
A wholesale rewrite of AI managers and countless new animations were the headline additions to the most realistic Match Engine in series history, while the licencing of the UEFA Club Competitions for the first time gave the game a whole new level of authenticity and immersion.
IMPROVED AI MANAGERS
When stepping out onto the virtual pitch, our players now face the most realistic AI managers in the history of the series. An overhaul of their decision-making has made them smarter, allowing them to make more contextual decisions and push you harder in every game. The Match team also rewrote the Out of Possession instructions to make them more accessible and align our in-game terminology with modern football trends.
Managers now have more recruitment tools at their disposal than ever before. The Squad Planner provides an in-game overview of your best players in every position over the course of the current season and next two; with a better oversight of your prospects in the pipeline, it’s never been easier to meet long-term club ambitions. Additionally, Agents are now more integrated than ever before, offering your more channels of communication with your players and avenues for understanding contract demands and transfer expectations.
UEFA CLUB COMPETITIONS LICENCE
Experience a greater sense of occasion with fully licensed UEFA club competitions, including the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Conference League. Remodelled Cup Draws and officially branded team sheets, scoreboards and goal graphics vividly bring to life Europe's elite cup competitions.
The voice of the fans is better represented in-game than ever before with the introduction of a new Supporter Confidence system. Showing the breakdown of a club’s fanbase from the core to the corporate, FM players have got a better grip on their expectations on and off the pitch. Delivering on both will hopefully ensure a bright, long-term future in the dugout.
Extensive work was put in to ensure that Matchdays in FM23 Console had a more ‘hands-on’ feel to them. The Touchline Tablet was remodelled, evolving something that appeared sporadically between highlights to the go-to place for match stats, player stats, latest scores and tactical advice. That, combined with controller functionality and focus improvements, helped to provide a more active match experience, pulling you into the heart of the on-pitch action.
Tied to this was the integration of Team Talks into a console edition for the first time. Available at half-time and full-time, these interactions allowed managers to make their voice heard with a range of reactions.
FM23 Console also included a raft of accessibility changes. There are new and improved Colour-Blind options available for those with Protanopia, Deuteranopia and Tritanopia. During matches, the game will automatically pause at pivotal moments, allowing users to process the game at their speed. In a similar fashion, the new onboarding process ensured that whether you were an experienced player or a series newcomer, you got the right level of detail and responsibilities in every career.
A host of new additions ensured that FM23 Mobile remained clear at the top of the mobile gaming football league.
The thrill of developing young talents into superstars became a more integral element of the game with the introduction of a brand-new Development Hub, a revamped Youth Intake screen and an enhanced Mentoring system.
A long-requested addition to the series, Team Talks made their debut in FM23 Mobile. Available pre-match and at half-time, it was possible for managers to individually praise or criticise players. Once they’d given their thoughts, a reaction screen would show the initial responses of the players and their team-talk reaction would be shown in post-match media items also.
FM23 Mobile was the first title in the Mobile series to feature integration with our exclusive member’s club FMFC. Members were able to login and get access to free exclusive game modes, with three challenges - ‘Unrest at Home’, ‘You Can’t Win Anything with Kids’, and ‘The Dangers of Capitalism’ – available to play. Selecting a national team from game start was also available exclusively to FMFC users.
Following a one year’s absence, Football Manager Touch returned to iOS devices thanks to an exciting partnership with Apple Arcade. FM23 Touch launched there and on Nintendo Switch™ on November 8th.
Joining the Apple Arcade platform meant that our 3D Match Engine was accessible on iPhone for the first time, and that managers could keep their career on the move whether they were playing on their phone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV.
A streamlined user interface on matchdays brought players closer to the on-pitch drama, while the addition of Team Talks at half-time and full-time allowed managers to capture every emotion and become a difference-maker in every situation.
