Football Manager 2015 first details
Game to focus on player personalities, dated for November release
SEGA and Sports Interactive have revealed that Football Manager 2015 will hit the streets on November 7th 2014.
This latest release in the series will feature a number of improvements designed to make the experience of managing a club more personal and customisable. Football Manager 2015 now asks the prospective manager to decide on the type of manager that they want to be.
"Are fans going to be a ‘tracksuit manager’ who spends much of their time on the training ground dealing directly with the players, or are they going to be a ‘tactical manager’, who spends more time concentrating on tactics and player recruitment? Or perhaps they’ll opt to be a mix of the two? This innovation means that, for the first time in the series, the manager is able to be on the training ground with the players," says Miles Jacobson, Director of Football Manager 15.
The game also offers a redesign of the user interface – making everything within the world quicker to navigate and managers will find it easier to access everything they need to lead their club to success.
Another improvement is Match View, which has enjoyed its most significant facelift since the introduction of 3D in Football Manager 2009. A major part of this is the addition of motion capture data. Created using players from AFC Wimbledon at Creative Assembly’s motion capture facility, the new motion capture data has allowed for the addition of more than 2,000 new animations.
Football Manager 2015 will be released for Windows PC, Mac and Linux.
