The time has come for fans of Sega’s soccer management sim. The Football Manager 2022 Early Access Beta is available now live on Steam and the Epic Games Store. The beta allows managers to get a head start and kick-off their respective careers.
How to Play the Football Manager 2022 Early Access Beta
Players who pre-purchased
Anyone who pre-purchased FM22 from a Sega-approved digital retailer can log-in to Steam or Epic and launch the game directly from their library, today.
Players who haven’t
That said, for those who haven’t pre-purchased the game, it’s not too late. From now until November 9, anybody who pre-purchases Football Manager 2022 on PC or Mac will get access to the beta and 10% off.
According to Sega, the beta is a near-complete (but not final) version of the game. The publisher encourages users to submit feedback for bugs and issues experienced during gameplay. Bugs can be reported to the Sports Interactive Team via the “Report Bug” button on the in-game sidebar. Online play is enabled, however, there is no access to the Steam Workshop or pre-game/in-game editors until FM22‘s full release November 9. Single player careers started on the FM22 Early Access Beta can be carried across to the full game.
