Today, SEGA is proud to announce that Sports Interactive’s Football Manager™ 2011 for PC and Mac is available now via digital download onhttp://www.direct2drive.com/9841/product/Buy-Football-Manager-2011-Download, as well as on Steam and other sites. The PC and Mac retail versions, and the PSP download-only version of the game, are both scheduled to be released later this month.

Football Manager 2011 has more new features than ever before. Debuting in this game is a new live contract negotiation system, with a host of new contract clauses. And by working with a multitude of real-life football agents, Sports Interactive gained an insight as to how these negotiations can be made as realistic as possible in-game. Prepare to meet different types of agents in your contract talks; each with their own personality so will therefore need a different approach.

With the implementation of the most intuitive training system in the series history, there is a new match preparation area of training so that managers can give their team specific areas to focus on in the lead up to a match. There are also more basic training schedules for players, and 14 different individual skill areas that you can focus your players on. Interaction with players, staff and the board have gone to a whole new level, with a host of new boardroom and backroom requests, a new player interaction module that allows the manager to have private conversations with players, as well as public conversations regarding players at other clubs.

Players will see a number of improvements to the 3D Match Engine implemented for this year’s release. With over 100 new animations added, as well as more player emotions, new player models, new stadiums, pitch textures, improved lighting, floodlit night matches, more goal celebrations and lots of other extras which improve what was already the best match simulation on the market. One of the most requested new features, Dynamic League Reputation, also debuts in this year’s game. Through Dynamic League Reputation, as teams get stronger and perform better on a continental level, the league they play in will also get stronger, attracting more players to want to play in the league and a more accurate modeling of the changing face of world football.

The PC version of the game will also include the ability to publish achievements and goals to social networking sites. Players can upload videos directly to a YouTube account. This will also include videos from the new match engine camera angle, dubbed the “TV camera” due to it being a moving and more zoomed in camera, much like you’d see when watching a match on TV.  Other new features include a revamped media module, which will keep the managers better up to date with events going on in their football world, as well as being more customisable than ever before.

With all of these new features and more, Football Manager is set to retain its position as the most realistic, most played, annually best selling, and highest reviewed football management simulation in the world.

An avid gamer since birth, I consider myself a new-age gamer. My first system was the N64, but the first system I really cared about was my Xbox Original. I'm a computer science major in college, and spend all my money on games, and stuff I don't need. I've never played Zelda or many Mario games in my youth. I'm also a huge sports fan, and a chick flick lover. My favorite games include Gears of War, Halo, Fallout, GTA, Mass Effect, and Metal Gear Solid.
