by William D'Angelo , posted on 19 November 2020 / 840 Views

It has been 13 years since a game in the Football Manager franchise released on an Xbox console, but this year it makes a return to Xbox consoles with the release of Football Manager 2021 on December 1. This is after the launch of the PC version, which will release on November 24.

Football Manager 2021 has been optimized for the Xbox controller and will be playable on the Xbox Series X and S, and Xbox One. It has support for Smart Delivery. 

Read an overview of the Xbox edition of the game below:

Based on Football Manager Touch, FM21 Xbox is fully optimised for victory with the Xbox Controller on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One. You can effortlessly put yourself on the path to footballing greatness with a UI that has been tailored for Xbox consoles and makes navigating through the game world a breeze.

COMPATIBILITY

FM21 Xbox Edition will be available on Xbox One, Xbox One X|S, Xbox Series X|S and Windows 10 PC.

FM21 Xbox takes advantage of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere technology to let you seamlessly transfer your progress between your Xbox console and any Windows 10 PC using the same Xbox Live profile. 

With Smart Delivery, whether you own the One, One X, Series S or X, FM21 Xbox will work across all of them - and will have a version specific to yours which is optimised to run at its very best.

TAILORED FOR YOUR XBOX

Unleash the power of the next generation of consoles on Xbox Series X|S and select up to 10 of the world’s biggest footballing nations when starting your journey to the top.

A clean and crisp match UI gives you an uninterrupted view of the Matchday drama in native 4K on Xbox Series X and upscaled 4K on Xbox Series S and Xbox One X|S.

Xbox Series X|S players can view highlights from league opponents giving you and your scouting team the inside scoop on the opposition before you go head-to-head on Matchday for those three points. You’ll also receive more detailed and valuable stats such as shot maps and Expected Goals (xG) reports – these will show where improvements are needed for your next fixture. 

If you’re on Xbox One, you’ll be restricted to loading just five of the best footballing nations, so home in on the trophies that matter to you. 

When you’re confident in your managerial abilities why not compete against your friends for the ultimate bragging rights in one of FM21 Xbox’s online modes? You can each select your favourite club and take on the world – and each other – in an online Career Mode game or mix things up in Fantasy Draft where you and your friends can draft squads of the biggest stars in football and face off against each other. Finally, if you want to settle the argument about whose team is better, head into Versus mode and prove it in a one-on-one contest. Cross-play is supported across the Xbox ecosystem so you can challenge your mates regardless of whether they’re playing FM21 Xbox on console or from the Xbox Store on PC.

We’re coming to Xbox with a bang, with a host of additions that help FM21 achieve football authenticity that other management games can only aspire to.

INTUITIVE UI

Fully optimised for use with the Xbox Controller on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, you can effortlessly put yourself on the path to footballing greatness with a UI that has been tailored for Xbox consoles and makes navigating through the game world a breeze.

MATCHDAY MAGIC

Matchdays are a true spectacle. A fresh display and enhanced graphics allow you to see more of the action. You’ll also be able to communicate with your players during matches, and let them know exactly how you feel, by using Shouts, all the while receiving targeted information from your Assistant.

WIN WITH DATA

Gather insight that will drive you to the top of the game from a wealth of match stats to pre-and post-match analysis and monthly data summaries.

CELEBRATING SUCCESS

When your hard work pays off, revel in your glory with spectacular trophy celebrations and post-match hype that will applaud your achievements as you cement your legacy.

FM21 Xbox is due for release on December 1st. We’ll be providing further updates and answering your questions on our social media, so get following to get ahead of the game.
