Microsoft has announced its plans for new Xbox Game Pass games, including titles arriving in October and November.
A wave of new titles are coming to PC and consoles this week, with other exciting additions coming next month.
The big news is that both versions of Football Manager 2022 will be available to download and play next month.
This means that if you own a PC or Xbox console, you’ll be able to play FM22 during November.
The announcement from Microsoft reveals: “Football Manager 2022 with Xbox Game Pass for PC and Football Manager 2022 Xbox Edition with Xbox Game Pass will be available day one with Xbox Game Pass on November 9.
“Like you, we’re counting down the days until you’ll be able to take your seat in the digital dugout. Let’s delve into new features and game upgrades to give you an idea of what you can expect in both FM22 and FM22 Xbox as you work your way to becoming a managerial great.”
“FM22 Xbox takes you away from the media circus and streamlines your interactions with fans and the owners, allowing you to focus on the managerial essentials – transfers, tactics and matchday.
“If you want to focus solely on squad building and escalate your ascent to the top of the footballing world, there’s also the option to skip straight to the final whistle using our ‘Instant Result’ feature which simulates your result.
“Tailored to work across the Xbox ecosystem, FM22 Xbox is designed to make full use of the Xbox Controller – including a wealth of improvements in this area for the new season – and harnesses the power of Play Anywhere technology that allows you to transfer your progress between your console and Windows 10 PC using the same Xbox Live profile. If you’re playing on Xbox Series X|S, you’ll also benefit from stunning 4K visuals.”
Football Manager will be arriving after Microsoft’s new Games with Gold lineup in November, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t fresh stuff being planned before then.
