Football Manager 2015, the latest in the award-winning and record-breaking series, is coming to PC, Macintosh, and Linux computers in November 2014. Football Manager is the most realistic, in-depth, and immersive simulation of football management available, putting you in the hot-seat of almost any club in more than 50 countries across the world, including all of Europe's biggest leagues. Football Manager 2015 will allow you to live the life of a real football manager – you decide who plays and who sits on the bench, and you're in total control of tactics, team-talks, substitutions, and pitch-side instructions as you follow the match live with the acclaimed 3D match engine.
Football Manager 2015, the latest release in the best-selling series, features a huge number of improvements and enhancements over its predecessors, many of which have been designed to make the experience of managing a club more personal and customisable.
This process of personalisation begins long before a ball has been kicked, or even before the manager has accepted their first job. In the modern football world, real-life managers display a variety of different management styles and, to reflect this, Football Manager 2015 now asks the prospective manager to decide on the type of manager that they want to be.
Are they going to be a ‘tracksuit manager’ who spends much of their time on the training ground dealing directly with the players, or are they going to be a ‘tactical manager’ who spends more time concentrating on tactics and player recruitment? Or perhaps they’ll opt to be a mix of the two? This innovation means that, for the first time in the series, the manager is able to be on the training ground with the players.
The ability to define a management style is just one of many improvements and enhancements in Football Manager 2015, many of which will not be instantly apparent as they occur over long-term play. One major change that will be obvious right from the start, however, is the complete redesign of the user interface--everything about Football Manager 2015 looks and feels different from before. The new interface makes everything within the world quicker to navigate, and managers will find it easier to access everything they need to lead their club to success.
You can now define your managerial style like never before, using the manager points system to focus on coaching, scouting, youth development, man-management, or maybe a little of everything. What type of manager are you?
More than 2,000 new motion-captured animations, new lighting, and improved player models and ball physics add extra depth and realism to the 3D match engine. Plus, improved AI, individual player shouts, touchline team talks, and other additions make this the closest simulation of a football match available.
A new look and feel to the user interface with a left-hand navigation bar makes management easier and more intuitive.
The new Scouting Centre integrates all areas of player recruitment. Plus, you can set scouting assignments to find specific levels of player, whether it be a first-teamer, youngster, or a direct player replacement.
Player's personalities and characters replicate today's football world where player power rules. Players are more vocal in the press, and quicker to issue ultimatums if they're unhappy.
A wider variety of journalists, with tabloid and broadsheet reporters developing more varied stories and building up rivalries through the media, plus brand new tunnel interviews before and after matches.
Updates to Classic Mode allow you more freedom when selecting nations, leagues, and players in your game world. Plus, you can now skip pre-season (in your first season), take control of player training, make more board requests, and there are many new unlockables.
Football Manager 2015 features many more great features, including Twitch TV support, manager timelines, and improvements to finances, training, and hundreds of other features.
