What are the new features of Football Manager 2022?
Sega and Sports Interactive bring new fresh additions to this game’s engine. Those are match analysis and xG. Additionally, the game’s Studio Director said that his team would revamp the transfer system to more adequately reflect financial realities that come up from the COVID-19 scenarios. That is that some clubs have small budgets and try to sell off players and have to pay off bills. And that impacts the capacity of the deal-making. On the graphics side, those will have improvements on lighting and actions on match simulations.
Leagues and licensing have a few changes, and the most notable one is that Manchester United won’t be available because they had a problem with Sega regarding a trademark issue. That means that the famous club won’t appear as “Manchester United” but rather as Man UFC or some equivalent. Football Manager has over 100 leagues from over 52 countries in all five continents. Furthermore, the developers created the “Data Hub,” a space for team and player analytics that gives the user data sets with visuals and allows for requesting of information. Also, the deadline day was revamped, giving the users a better experience of what’s going on, press interactions, and the likes.
Deadline day revamping
Sports Interactive is also enhancing Football Manager’s deadline day experience to better represent the “drama, excitement, and tension” of the transfer window’s finale. Football Manager Senior UI/UX designer Tom Bray reveals that a new deadline day center will better notify you of the latest transactions, rumors, and offers. You’ll also receive specialized panels to help you track interest in your players from other teams, capitalize on contract issues, and identify who is stalled on the transfer list.
Sports Interactive is redesigning Football Manager 2022’s UI components to add suspense to the day, such as a countdown meter that informs you that the day is coming to an end. If you’re searching for a Sky Sports-style experience, there’s also a ticker bar that displays the most recent breaking transfer news. With this, we conclude our coverage of Football Manager 2022.
