Exciting new ventures are on the horizon, and we can't wait to see just how much these new features will impact our saves.
FM23 New Transfer Features
The wheeling and dealing seen in real-life football has always been a main feature of Football Manager 2023, with every gaffer under the sun enjoying the experience of scouting their next superstar and ensuring their top player is sold for a premium.
Sports Interactive clearly know its market, with brand new features announced for Football Manager 2023 set to make squad building the best it's ever been.
The new features for FM23 include the brand new Squad Planner, a feature that promises to have a major effect on the way your save plays out.
FM23 Squad Planner
The Squad Planner will allow players to rank members of their squad to help visualize strengths and weaknesses, but it also includes players on your shortlist.
This offers a new resource where players can plan the immediate future of their club across short-term recruitment as well as current lineups.
As a private list, it will also mean ranking your players won't hurt their feelings but will allow staff to work around your priorities as you plan them.
The Squad Planner will also allow you to make clear plans for multiple years ahead, with a plan available for the current season, the following season and the season after that.
All die-hard FM players will have taken out a pen and paper at some point and done this very same process on the pad, but this new feature negates that need.
Whilst it may not be flashy, the arrival of the squad planner will give you a clear view of your squad's strengths and weaknesses, allowing you to adapt when necessary and carefully plot your transfer targets.
Ultimately, this feature is once again a showcase of how Football Manager is becoming the most immersive football game on the market, with a brand new feature like the squad planner a clear reflection of how managers plan their squads in real life.
Backed up by data and scout reports, the brand new recruitment features announced for FM23 are set to make wheeling and dealing more fun than it has ever been.
