Football Manager 2020 official artwork without logo

[Update]: Somewhat unrelated, but it's also worth mentioning that the excellent Tomb Raider 2013 is entirely free to grab on Steam until March 24th.

If you currently have a bit of free time and you're willing to try something a bit out of the ordinary, you might be interested to hear that Football Manager 2020 is having an extended free trial. Simply head on over to Steam, click on that giant "Play Game" button, and you'll be ready to bankrupt club after club in no time!

Speaking of which, there is a bit of a time limit with this trial. However, unlike the usual free weekend which gives you a couple of days at best, Football Manager will be entirely free to play until 3pm GMT on March 25th, which is more than enough time to get a good impression of it.

It's also worth mentioning that even though Football Manager 2020 is obviously all about football, you don't actually have to be a fan of the sport in order to enjoy it. You can simply treat it as an in-depth strategy game with tons of different elements to mess around with, which is pretty much exactly what the Football Manager series is once you strip away all of the football fluff.

With that said, I'll leave you with one of the trailers highlighting some of the new mechanics that arrived with Football Manager 2020. Not the most exciting stuff in the world, but it will give you a better idea of just what the actual gameplay looks like. Enjoy!
