EA has announced online play for FIFA Manager 10, in which players will be able to pit their transfer and tactical wit against each other just like in real life. But without the posturing.
It's taken 10 instalments to get here, and EA has plenty more features pegged for the autumn PC release.
Better AI and player development, for example, plus brushed-up presentation, superior 3D mode animation and a customisable manager desktop. You can tinker with the facilities in stadiums, too. In addition, there's an improved website and manager diary to collect pictures of silverware, or perhaps your favourite moments in.
FIFA Manager 10 comprises data from over 40 countries, covering over 3600 clubs and 31,000 players. There's an editor to create your own stars as well.
