Sports Interactive have released the early access beta of Football Manager 2017 for digital preorders.
Studio Director Miles Jacobson confirmed via Twitter on Monday that he had given the green light for the beta to be released on Tuesday evening, a few days ahead of schedule.
The beta release comes amid a whirlwind of mostly positive publicity surrounding the games depiction of the upcoming British departure from the European Union and the very tangible impact that it will have on football in the British Isles.
This years iteration of the wildly popular football management simulator boasts a number of improvements including an improved match engine, a more realistic transfer market, better manager customization and an expanded roster of backroom staff to recruit. The main new and updated features have been covered in a video released last week.
The full game releases on November 4th via Steamworks.
