Sega announced that its Beta for Football Manager 2014 is now accessible to anyone who preordered it. No matter where the preorder came from, you should receive a digital code to download the game through Steam.
Content included in this Beta version are the default Career mode, as well as Football Manager Classic. It may, however, contain some omission that will be added upon the game’s full release, on October 31, 2013. Installing the game should take about 2Gb of space.
Additionally, Sega announced that, in a rare case of leniency, the Beta version will actually be playable until November 4, 2013 and so a few days past the release date. Then again, the game should also automatically update to the full version, so this would only apply to people who cancel their preorder and would like a little more time to think things through.
