How will you manage? Football Manager 2015 once again offers realistic, in-depth and immersive simulation of football management, putting you in the hot-seat of almost any club in more than 50 countries across the world, including all of Europe’s biggest leagues. The 2015 edition features a huge number of improvements and enhancements over its predecessors, many of which have been designed to make the experience of managing a club more personal and customisable.
This process of personalisation begins long before a ball has been kicked – or even before the manager has accepted their first job. In the modern football world real-life managers display a variety of different management styles and, to reflect this, Football Manager 2015 now asks the prospective manager to decide on the type of manager that they want to be. Are they going to be a ‘tracksuit manager’ who spends much of their time on the training ground dealing directly with the players, or are they going to be a ‘tactical manager’, who spends more time concentrating on tactics and player recruitment? Or perhaps they’ll opt to be a mix of the two?
In Football Manager 2015, a complete redesign of the user interface makes everything within the world quicker to navigate. Match View has also enjoyed its most significant facelift since the introduction of 3D in Football Manager 2009. Cutting-edge motion capture data helps breathe new life into the match-day experience and takes it to that next level of realism. Created using players from AFC Wimbledon at Creative Assembly’s motion capture facility, the new motion capture data has allowed for the addition of more than 2,000 new animations, instantly making the on-pitch experience more lifelike. The introduction of improved lighting and an overhaul of the ball physics -- along with the addition of a variety of new stadium types --combine to make Football Manager 2015’s match-day experience the most realistic to date. Football Manager 2015 matches also include improved AI, new tactical player roles and instructions, new player preferred moves, touchline team talks and press interviews in the tunnel, along with a host of other innovations and enhancements.
