According to FM’s blog post, fans of the popular series can head on over to the Epic Games Store or Steam to access the beta.
The Football Manager publisher also added that those who have purchased FM21 from a Sega-approved digital retailer will be able to access the full title now.
The fully playable version includes access to online modes like Create-A-Club and online career mode, along with supporting cross-compatibility between Epic and Steam.
And Sega has confirmed that any progress players make in career mode will be carried over when the title updates on its full release later this month.
Anyone who pre-purchases the title from selected digital retailers will receive 10 per cent off FM21 and also receive beta access.
FM21 Touch has been confirmed for release on Nintendo Switch in December, while FM21 will be coming to Xbox Series X and Xbox One.
Sega has revealed that FM21 on Microsoft’s consoles has been “modelled” on its Football Manager Touch titles.
“Due for release before the end of the year, FM21 Xbox will be a Play Anywhere digital title meaning it’s yours to play on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, and is available from the Xbox Store,” Sports Interactive and Sega confirmed in a blog post.
“FM21 Xbox will also be available on the new Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, with the number of playable leagues differing based on the Xbox device you are playing on.”
