Football Manager 2022 Major Update 22.2 Steam

A little over a month after its release, Football Manager 2022’s first major update is finally here. It contains improvements, fixes, and tweaks across the board, and the best part is that you can get these changes without having to start all over again.

One of the highlights in this patch is a logic update that would stop players from complaining about the lack of playing time, even though they’re starting nearly every match.

In addition, newly appointed international managers are given more lifelike pressure when it comes to their job security, thus making things a bit more realistic.

For bug fixes, multiple animation issues that would result in players sliding or teleporting in the 3D match engine have been resolved.
