New Features For Football Manager 18

At the time of writing this no new features for FM18 have been released. We will be keeping an eye on the Official Football Manager Twitter and Instagram sites for further news about features that may be in the game. have released an article on what they think some of the new features for FM 2018 should be. They mention about introducing managing Womens football, this is not something that would interest me personally, but it would be a move that some fans may like.

They also mention that the graphics for the game are looking a bit dated, they start to compare the graphics to Fifa. As someone who has played football manager for over 20 years, I realise that the game is about the management of a football team, not pretty graphics. I watch all of my games on 2d so I can see the tactical side of the game better. From that aspect, I don't think there needs to be alot of work put into making the game look pretty, the engine under match engine is an area that will always need developing though.

Football Manager 2018 Price

Football Manager 2017 was released with a price of £34.99, it can *probably* be expected that FM18 will retail for the same price. On the Official Football Manager 2018 webpage - it has been confirmed that "fans who pre-purchase Football Manager 2018 before Monday, October 9th and have Football Manager 2017 in their Steam Library will receive a 'Contract Extension Bonus' discount of 25% off their purchase via Steam or the SEGA Store.". This is certainly an offer worth taking up if you do have Football Manager 2017 on your Steam Library.

The initial release price on the Official Football Manager 2018 website is £37.99.
