Due out this winter, Football Manager 2012 will apparently boast over 800 new features. Key alterations include a revamped transfer and contract system, including better implementation of amateur and youth contracts, and the arrival of loyalty bonuses (you wont need to pay many of those in the Premiership).

Were constantly watching the whole of the football world, and dealing with people inside football, to find out out whats changing, says Sports Interactive MD, Miles Jacobson. One thing people may notice from the screenshots is that the signing on fee isnt there anymore � its been replaced by a loyalty bonus. Its fortuitous this has happened just as the news broke that Febregas was going to be paying back Arsenal some of his signing on fee for the next few years, because they paid him a loyalty bonus upfront. The featureset for this game was nailed down in December, but sometimes we go along at the pace of the real life sport. Life sometimes imitates art!

Indeed, several high profile clubs now use Football Manager and its vast database of players as a means of discovering new talent. Sports Interactive employs a huge network of its own scouts around the world who watch and rate players in their local leagues. This information is then passed into the game. In 2008, Everton signed a deal to use the Football Manager database for scouting players and staff.

Game Features:
Transfers & Contracts � significant changes to the transfer and contract systems, including loyalty bonuses, better implementation of amateur and youth contracts, an improved transfer centre and the ability to lock areas of the contract negotiation when you arent prepared to budge. This helps you to manage your budgets and gives you flexibility in what you offer money hungry players, or agents, as incentives.
Scouting improvements � using several real life scouting reports, a new in game report has been devised which includes squad analysis, tactics information and information about goals scored and conceded alongside lots of other scouting improvements, giving you all the information you need to prepare before kick off and throughout the season.
3D Match Improvements � new animations, a whole new crowd system, improved weather system, more stadiums, plus two brand new camerasBehind Goal and Director Cam as well as all other camera angles being reversible � meaning you can watch and analyse every aspect of every game.
Manage Anywhere, Anytime � the ability to add or take away playable nations in your saved game as often as you want. Manage in that country at the start of the next seasonmeaning you dont have to stay in the nations which are chosen by you to be playable at the start of your career.
Tone � a whole new level has been added to team talks and conversations, with the new tone system, which allows you to specify the way you want to say things � be as cool as a cucumber by saying things calmly or throw tea cups around by saying things with passion. There are 6 different tones to choose from with specific comments per tone.
Intelligent Interface � a new adaptive layout system, which means the higher your screen resolution, the more info is easily at your fingertips. The new interface also contains new filters, customisable columns, a new tactics screen, and lots of new overview screens.
