Sega has today announced Football Manager 2012, the latest installment in their long running franchise.
As you’d expect, developer Sports Interactive are throwing a few new features and improvements into the mix.
Loyalty bonuses are now present in the transfer and contracts part of the game. On top of this, the amateur and youth contracts have been improved, giving players the ability to lock variables during negotiations if they’re not open to change.
Scouts will now give the player an entire rundown of the opposition’s game, meaning preparing before kick-off will be much easier.
This year’s installment also introduces an improved 3D match, which includes new animations an brand new crowd system, improved weather effects and new camera angles.
The game will also feature a new interface, which displays more or less information on the screen at one time, depending on the resolution of your monitor. There’ll also be new filters, customisable columns and new overview screens.
The developer also detailed some smaller changes, which are being made to features such as conversations and playable nations. There’s more information, over on Videogamer.
Football Manager is due to release on PC, sometime before Christmas.
