Football Manager is pregnant and will bring forth a bouncing baby brat just in time for the crowded release season.


Football Manager 2016 will launch on November 13, Sega has announced, for Mac and PC.

According to PC Gamer, the 2016 refresh includes two new modes. Fantasy Draft is a PvP mode with fixed budgets, while Create-A-Club is a single-player mode for creating totally custom teams.

The other major new feature is the ability to create an avatar so you can see your mini me standing on the edge of the field having tantrums when your players forget how their feet work. Hit the link above for some screenshots and more improvements expected in this year’s entry.

Sega has also announced a standalone spin-off called Football Manager Touch, which will launch for Mac, PC and tablets later in the year. It boasts a stripped-down version of Classic Mode gameplay, and will support cross-save.
