    Default Football Manager presents new challenges!

    For the first time in the history of the best-selling series, Football Manager™ players will have access to a choice of extra gameplay options as premium downloadable content (DLC) is introduced to the latest update for Football Manager Handheld™ 2012.

    Players of the Android version of the game who install the newly-released update (along with those who purchase the game from this point forwards) will have access to two extra, optional Challenges; 'Austerity Measures' and 'You Can't Win Anything With Kids'. These same Challenges will also be added to the iOS version through a soon-to-be-released update.

    Football Manager Handheld's Challenge Mode was first introduced in the 2012 release, when users were presented with four specific Challenges in addition to the ongoing management simulation. These initial Challenges - 'The Saviour Cometh', 'Injury Crisis', 'Unrest at Home' and 'The Invincibles' - added a new dimension to the gameplay which has proved popular with FM fans.

    The additional Challenges are priced at 69p each and are accessible through the newly-added 'Store' button on the game's home screen.

    To coincide with the release of this update, all versions of Football Manager™ are currently available at reduced prices.Football Manager 2012 for PC and Macintosh™ is available via Steam™ at a reduction of 40 per cent, while both versions of Football Manager Handheld are currently priced at £2.99 (down from £6.99). These short-term price reductions will remain in place until July 23rd.

    You can download Football Manager Handheld from the following locations:

    Great news, I love challenge mode!

    You (SI) should do something similar with leagues/nations for FMH 2013; allow extra/optional leagues to be downloaded for users that can afford the space and extra 69p/99c per nation.

    The new challenges are:

    Austerity Measures - you have to reduce your clubs wage bill within a fixed timescale while at the same time remaining competitive on the pitch.

    You can't win anything with kids - the board has sold the clubs more experience professionals favouring instead promoting players out of your youth academy, the kids have promise and have started the season well - but can you help inspire them to actually life some silverware?

    I'm not a huge fan of challenges as a game mode as they tend to be over after just one season, however I would happily throw some cash to see more clubs and tournaments featured in the game. Oh and longer challenges.

    I can understand why you want to go this way - in-game purchases. It is in almost all games now. I am just sad to see FMi going that way. I fear this is just the beginning and we will soon see a FMi filled with loads of in-game purchases that ruin what is the true essense of FMi.

    That won't happen at all - the way I want to take things is to use inApp purchasing to complement the game rather than to simply cash in - my preference is to use it to prolong the gameplay for people who love the app (ie. new challenges which you don't need to purchase unless you want to).

    I won't let anything implemented as inApp purchases adversely affect the gameplay at all after all at that point it wouldn't be an FM management game.

    I'm more than happy to discuss this side of things with people if they have any concerns at all, but suffice to say FMH is my baby and gameplay is sacrosanct to me.

    That is reassuring. Thanks for clearing that up

    i am pretty sure this is not the right place for this question, but i cant find where i can, so i will just ask you here. i have updated the game for ios today, but after the update, the game became high definition, and a different feeling (very similar to android version). however, the game itself now lags too much. during the match, or even in the normal gameplays... does this happen to everyone or just me?

    If you go to the "Preferences" screen, under the User Interface section there should be an option called "HD Display Enabled", you should be able to turn that off.

    This sounds odd - do you have a save from before the failed message appeared? Thanks.

    Would be great if you can send it to me at alari.naylor@sigames.com and I'll have a look into it. Thanks!

    I've now received your save - it's an FMC save rather than FMH which is my area so I'll pass it onto Lucas Weatherby who will look into it for you.

    Cheers,
