Football Manager 2023 Beta available now - Here's how to download on PC and Mac

Players who have pre-ordered Football Manager 2023 can now download the FM23 Beta.

Football Manager 2023 will be officially released on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, but players who have pre-ordered FM23 on Steam, Epic Games or Microsoft Store will be able to download and access a Beta version of FM23 today, which is almost three weeks of early access. The FM23 Beta is now available for those on Steam, but players using the Epic Games Launcher will have to wait until later today.

Sports Interactive has introduced a number of new features for FM23 including a Recruitment Revamp, new Match AI and Animation, UEFA licence, Supporter Confidence, Dynamic Manager Timeline and much more. Despite Sports Interactive announcing the release of FM23 Console this year, which will be playable on Xbox Series S/X and PS5, it has been confirmed that the FM23 Beta will only be available for players on PC and Mac, and FM23 Console won't be available for early access.

In addition to FM23 Console, Football Manager 2023 Touch will also be released on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 for Nintendo Switch and Apple Arcade, so the game can be played on iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV for the first time.

And players who begin a new save on the FM23 Beta can carry their save progress into the full game on release. If you haven't pre-ordered FM23 yet, anyone who pre-purchases FM23 on PC and Mac from a participating digital retailer between now and the game’s full release will get access to the Beta and 20% off.

To download the FM23 Beta on Epic Games, simply quit and restart the Epic Games launcher and you will see FM23 available to install. To download the FM23 Beta on Steam, simply quit and restart Steam and you’ll see that Football Manager 2023 is available to install.

If you have pre-ordered FM23 from other SEGA-approved digital retailers, here are the instructions for how to redeem.

  1. Launch the Steam client software and log into your Steam account or create a new, free account
  2. Click the Games Menu
  3. Choose Activate a Product on Steam
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the activation process

*The Store, Steam Workshop and both the Pre and In-Game Editor are not available in the FM23 Beta.

Anyone who pre-orders Football Manager 2023 on Steam, Epic Games and Microsoft Store will receive roughly early access prior to full release, plus a 20% discount.
