    Default UPDATE 13.2.3 RELEASED for Football Manager 2013

    I’m very pleased to be able to announce the latest update for Football Manager 2013, 13.2.3 is now available. As always the update is save game compatible allowing you to continue your current save game, and we've provided a change list below.

    To update you will need to close the game down and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam.

    Once updated the version number will be 13.2.3 with match engine v1339, more specifically the full version numbers are listed below:

    PC: 350104
    Mac: 350176

    As with the previous updates there are no database changes, if you start a new game the database number will remain 13.0.0.

    Many thanks.
