The Football Manager 2024 beta has been released, giving fans early access ahead of the November 6 release date. 

The FM beta usually drops around two weeks before the official release date. The beta version isn't announced ahead of time but gives users around a fortnight's headstart – and it dropped last night.

FM24 is set to be the biggest Football Manager yet, with updates including the introduction of the Japanese J-League, new set pieces and much, much more.

PC/Mac users need to pre-purchase the game on Steam, Epic or Microsoft Store before November 6. This will include a 20% discount on the game, too.

If you're looking for a discount on FM24, there's a discount on preorder at Fanatical – by shopping via FFT, you can save an extra 5% off the game – making it 22% off overall. That reduces the final price to just £35.05, down from £44.99. When you head to the checkout, make sure to use the additional discount code 442FM24 to get the extra 5% off Football Manager 2024.

Unfortunately, the beta version of the game is not available on console, tablet or mobile.
