Football Manager 2016 Released For Linux & SteamOS

Football fans rejoice! We have a day one release of Football Manager 2016 for Linux & SteamOS. It's a very popular game series, and great to see another on Linux.

Not one I'm going to pick up personally, as I much prefer the FIFA-type games than being a manager myself.

It's already climbing the steam stats page for players online right now, so looks like it's going to be just as popular as the previous games, which is good for us to have it.

About the game
Football Manager is the most realistic, in-depth and immersive football management simulation available – it’s the closest thing to doing the job for real. Taking control of any squad from more than 50 countries across the world, you decide who plays and who sits on the bench, deal with the media and solve player problems. You're in total control of tactics, team-talks, substitutions and pitch-side instructions as you follow the match live with the acclaimed 3D match engine.

I believe is closer that pes be first on linux than EA. EA is very explicit about linux so I don't come soon fifa.

Yeah, FIFA would be really great, but you know it's EA, and they will be the last company to port on SteamOS/Linux

I wonder how games like FIFA are playing with Steam controller?

How does one acquire rights to football games anyway? Can I buy right to action games in Germany too?
