That means with the download of the day one update, all players that preordered FM 22 can now finally play the release version of the game instead of the beta.

Beta saves will carry over to the official version of FM 22, though it's likely a good idea to start anew to avoid any bugs or complications previous editions have had moving from the Beta to full launch.

What platform can I try it on?

SONY TO MISS OUT - PS4 and PS5 are unlikely to see Football Manager 2022 on the PS store.

Microsoft too has linked up with Sports Interactive to release the last instalment on Xbox consoles, which was the first time they had a version for 11 years!

This year the game will be available on Xbox Game Pass from Day One - opening the game up to even more players.

However, we are unlikely to see Sony partner up with the gaming giants as Sports Interactive spoke last year on why there will be no PS4/PS5 release.

What new features will we see in the Beta?

Each year Sports Interactive finds ways to keep the game so refreshing, which is why fans get hooked.

So far, there has been no new information on additions to the game, although fans are hoping for more player faces to be included in the game, a higher number of licensed teams, as well as an update to the 90s feeling match day engine.
