Championship Manager 2010 is the latest edition of the classic football management franchise, and will be the first football game available for the 2009/10 season. In development for over 2 years, the 2010 edition offers players a host of unique features never seen before in football management games. These include a bespoke 3D match engine with over 500 individual player animations created specifically for Championship Manager, a Set-piece creator giving users the chance to create their own unique free kicks and corners, Scouting Networks allowing users to set-up local networks in countries around the world and scout for local players and Practice matches helping users build and mould their perfect team or trial new players.
Championship Manager also includes an industry first in CM Season Live allowing players to download the real-world 09/10 football season data and take on real world managerial decisions and challenges in the leading leagues across Europe.
Eidos is offering a downloadable PC version of its new football management game to fans on a ‘pay what you want’ model ahead of the usual fee of £29.99 when the game is available in store. This will be the first time an initiative like this has ever been tried in the videogames market.
At a time when the cost of transfers in football have reached record levels, with players fetching hundreds of millions of pounds between them, this ‘pay what you want’ promotion means that all grass-root football fans will need to do is pay a £2.50 transaction fee plus any additional amount of their choice, starting from just a 1p. This will run until midnight on September 10th.
Championship Manager 2010 will be available across Europe in French, Italian, Spanish, Turkish and Polish on Friday September 11th 2009.
