Main new features confirmed for Football Manager 2020
Development centre, new ways to control player growth, and more
Sports Interactive and SEGA have announced the main new features for Football Manager 2020.
Take full control of your youth team operations in a new all-encompassing Development Centre hub. The Development Centre lets you see an overview of the young players at your club with relevant advice about their development displayed.
With Club Vision, develop a culture, work with the board to achieve ongoing objectives and plot a course for your club to progress in seasons to come. Club vision goes far beyond the boardroom; impacting on transfers, playing style and competition expectations as you look to strengthen your club's identity and meet the multi-year milestones.
Another new feature is playing time, defining the status of a player within the squad and a playing time structure can be promised to a player for the duration of their contract. As part of the contract negotiations, you can offer playing time over future seasons which can be used to give a young star a defined path into the first-team, for example.
New player models this year are more lifelike which also extends into the manager avatars that have also been remodelled. The pitches in FM20 have also been improved and are more visibly affected by weather patterns and display more noticeable effects of mud and water.
Lastly, new roles, advice and interaction make your staff more involved and important. There is a greater level of backroom advice available to you including more detailed team selection advice from your backroom team, including a suggested squad to use on matchday.
Football Manager 2020 will be released on PC later this year.
