‘Football Manager Touch 2018’ Brings New Graphics Engine, Medical Center, and Other Useful Additions

Football Manager Mobile 2018 [$ 8.99] is out today, so those who only have a phone or those who like a simpler, faster experience are probably already playing well into their first season. But those who have recent tablets and want an experience closer to the PC one are anxiously waiting for Football Manager Touch 2018 to hit on November 24th (two weeks delayed). So far, Sports Interactive has been quite stingy with details on the upcoming game, but the Steam version is up now, and that provides details on what is new for this year and should help you decide whether you should buy Football Manager Touch 2018 once it comes out or whether you should stick with the previous version (if you already own that).

The first major addition is a new graphics engine and match interface that should make match day look better than before. Hard to judge by just a screenshot, but the graphics do look better. There’s also revamped scouting, a new Medical Center that helps you stay on top all those injuries, better transfers, and new player roles and tactical improvements that make it easier to manage player tactics. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the new dynamics system made it to the Touch version. What do you think of these additions? Do they make the game worth buying?
