Football Manager™ 2014 is the latest installment of Sports Interactive's football management series. Football Manager 2014 lets you play on Linux for the first time and includes ‘cloud-save’ technology which means that managers can now pursue a single career from any computer, anywhere in the world. FM14 also includes integration with Steam Workshop making it easy for managers to create and share customized FM content such as photo/logo packs, new and custom competitions and tailor-made challenges using the new Challenge Editor.
The 3D Match Engine has seen extensive improvements, including enhanced AI, improved lighting and player animation, individual player character and kit models, more realistic player reaction to on-field incidents and a range of optimizations which combine to make this the best looking and fastest FM Match Engine yet.
There has been a complete redesign of how tactics are created, selected and implemented with player roles and team strategies becoming even more prominent, definable roles for players for multiple positions, new player roles and instructions and improvements to rival managers' AI so that they’ll adapt their tactics more readily over time.
