Also 25% discount if pre-ordered before October 9th and you had FM17.

https://community.sigames.com/topic/407026-football-manager-2018-announcement/

"With FM17 we attempted to do something that we’d wanted to do for years – and that was to put in place an “early bird loyalty scheme”, just like you have with season tickets at football clubs, so that if you owned our last 4 titles, you got a 20% discount from your pre-order from our friends at Steam. It was very experimental – not something that others devs had managed in the past in the way we did it, and we’re very grateful to Steam for putting the technology in place not just for you, but also for other studios and publishers who wanted to use it in the future.

It was hugely successful and appreciated by a very large group of people – our pre-orders had never been higher. But we also saw quite a bit of negativity on social media for varying reasons, but mainly because people didn’t understand it, or thought we were doing it only in advance of announcing any features, the latter of which wasn’t true.

So we spent some time with Steam and SEGA working out how we could simplify the offering to make it easier to understand, whilst utilising the technology that Steam have available to them. And, of course, get them to agree to give a discount to their customers, as they are the retailer, not us.

Therefore, those who pre-order Football Manager 2018 via Steam (or the SEGA store), and who own Football Manager 2017, will get 25% off up until October 9th. Because it’s only for people who own FM17, we’re not calling it a loyalty scheme anymore, as it’s one game not 4. So it’s now a signing on bonus for those extending their contracts. Gotta love using football terminology for these things J

By the time the promotion ends, the key new features will already have been trailed (those are due to be announced late September as Brocky mentions above) and we may have even released 1 or 2 full feature videos by then – can’t confirm the latter yet, as we don’t yet know what dates those will be released, or even how many feature videos we’re doing in total as yet. But you’ll have the headline feature news already, so all good!"

Yeah but it's £38 from Steam.

Gone are the days of getting it for £22 from Grainger Games.

Maybe by a couple of weeks.

My birthday is beginning of November and it's usually released around then.

Seems to have been a bit quiet on the FM18 front - any news on new features?

Being released very shortly. What's the cheapest pre order out there that will have access to the BETA?

Anyone know what the difference is between the normal FM 18 and the limited edition copy?

If it's like FM17, you get FM Touch free along with additional challenges in the 'Challenge' bit.

Anyone keeping up with the video release of new features? I've not watched them yet, but it's nice to see they've done something with the Sports Science bit, even if I don't know by how much yet!

The #FM18 beta will be released on, or before, Friday 27th October. No date or time is set in advance.

First thing you need to do - change that bright skin!

Anyone know if FM17 tactics can be moved across to FM18? Couldn't from FM16 to FM17.

Wouldn't even bother wasting your time with the Beta. That many things wrong with it, it's not worth pressing continue.

The only thing it's good for is having a look around the players and staff.

Quite a few mistakes on Lincoln's, which I'm hoping will be sorted.

Injuries being my main issue with it.

I started with Dortmund and now have a squad of about 30 as I've had to buy so many players because I had 12 first team injuries.

I’m having loads of fun. Completed a season already. Started with Luton, got sacked in November with the new scouting system catching me out and reducing my signings to just Scott McTominay on loan from Manchester United. Took over Poole Town in the National League South later in the month, got relegated with them at the end of the season, meaning I got sacked again. Now in charge of Macclesfield in the National League North and sitting at the top with four wins from four games m.
