When Is The Beta?

The beta is now LIVE on Steam! FM20 rewards planning like never before, so the Beta provides a good opportunity to build the foundations ahead of full release. Experienced FM players will also notice upgrades and optimisations straight away, making the game look cleaner and fresher than ever before.
