  1. FM13 Pre-Order Codes and BETA Access Questions

    Please ask any questions relating to pre-order codes and BETA access here. We don't need a separate thread for every individual retailer.

    All game progress from the beta will be accessible in the final version.

    Please check this page for further details about the Beta: http://www.sigames.com/news/14165/FM...ccess+Beta+FAQ

    We can only speculate with regard to other retailers, who may choose to send your code out earlier, or indeed later.

    Larger retailers may have already sent customers their BETA code, but no-one can use them until the BETA goes live. Please be patient if you haven't received yours yet. If the BETA goes live and you haven't received your code, that is the time to contact your retailer.

    PLEASE NOTE - BETA access codes will not be emailed to you (regardless of where you ordered from) until the BETA goes live, or maybe shortly beforehand. The BETA has no official launch date, so no-one knows exactly when you will receive your code.

    Steam codes are usually emailed to you a day or so before release date, to allow you to pre-load the game if you wish.
    i pre-ordered it in this site so when they send us the beta code ?

    As far as i know, and i cite Dunc who works for SI as my main reference, SI have not yet released the BETA codes to retailers, so how you got yours i'm not sure... More likely is that you have received your steam code to allow you to pre-load the game before the release date.

    From what i've read, the BETA is the full game, save for any last minute non-data changes SI make, except the network games function is not present. You can continue BETA saves on the full game, so i don't see why it would affect things from SI's point of view. Steam may have a rule excluding BETA games from full game leaderboards though, not sure.

    Not sure about Amazon to be honest. They may well already have beta codes for the customers, I think it's the 'smaller' retailers that haven't got them yet. I'm not entirely sure, but if you have it now, or if you don't get it till Friday either way, you can't play it till it's been activated anyway, of which the date and time has not been officially set. So if your beta code still hasn't arrived at that time, then you need to contact the people you bought the game off, and also it's best to check if they are on the list of retailers that are offering the pre-order beta 'bonus'.

    It also doesn't include the editor.

    I ordered mine from base.com and they emailed me my code over a week a go also..

  11. OK, so as Dunc has nicely clarified, some larger retailers may already have emailed you your BETA code.

    The fact is, you can't use it til the BETA goes live. So those of you feeling left out because you don't have your code yet, don't worry, you will receive it when the BETA is live, and hopefully in most cases, shortly beforehand.

    If you already have your BETA code, you can activate it already on Steam. Games > Activate a Steam product

    me too but they didn't email me

  17. I ordered mine from this website, will the code take long to be sent after the beta becomes active?

    Thanks

  18. If you have pre-ordered through FM-Base the beta codes should start getting sent out tomorrow (Thursday 18th Oct) afternoon. There has been no confirmation as of yet from SEGA when the Beta will be going live though. Most likely it will be sometime on Thursday evening or Friday.

    So you should receive your beta code before it goes live so that you have a chance to download the game ready to play it the second it goes active.

  19. Cheers, thanks for the quick response

  20. Does this still hold true? The game is due to be released tomorrow....and no code yet in my email

    Hello,
    Thank you for contacting us. There will be a beta released by Steam around 2 weeks before the release date of November 2. Serial keys will be made available two days prior to the beta live date. Please let us know if you have further questions. Thanks.

    Best regards,

    Nexway Customer Service




  21. Zavvi say on their website that they're going to give me an early access code, but on the FM website it says that Zavvi isn't a participating retailer, unless anyone else can spot it?

    Look 2 posts above yours and see where Sean has clearly stated when the BETA's will arrive.

    I read that SEGA were distributing the codes and they had already sent them out to retailers.. That's what it says on their website. But yeah, it's upto the retailer as to when they send them out to customers.

    "The Football Manager 2013 beta is currently set for Friday October 19th. We're not currently able to send out keys but will have more information available next week."

  27. Thankyou at least i will get it on the 19th

  28. Hey guys, I've yet to preorder FM13 yet, but I was planning to do so in a couple of hours time after school's over via Steam.. If I do, would I still be able to receive the Beta code and play the Beta version?

  29. yep. but steam version is double the price than from fm base, and fmbase you a code tonight to activate with steam and download beta early as well

    steam:

    Pre-Purchase Offer

    Pre-Purchase and receive access to the beta when it starts!


  30. So does the Beta go live 00:01 Friday UK time?
    Cuz thats like early in the morning here.
    Just wondering.And has anyone who has ordered from GreenManGaming heard of their access codes?

  31. Is this version of fmbase now the same as the version provided via Steam?
    So it must also support all languages ​​and the Dutch language contain?

  32. If I pre-ordered it like Saturday (after the supposed day it goes live) from here, would I still get a BETA code?

  33. Getting too excited now. Refreshing my Hotmail account every 5 minutes.

  37. Hello, If i pre-order the game now, Will i still get the Beta Access?

  38. Hmmm. I was going to hold out until demo release due to tight finances. However after seeing the last of the video blogs, I'm starting to crack lol

  39. I hope everyone remembers that this is still a BETA version and may not be 100% polished and ready to go.

  41. The Post Your Frustrations thread may be very laughable the next few days lol

  42. Like a couple of other people have asked, if I pre-order it tomorrow will I still receive the BETA code?

  43. Only Sean can answer that, i'll try and find out.

  44. Thanks

  45. I hope everyone remembers that this is still a BETA version and may not be 100% polished and ready to go.
    Keepers a little dodgy at times in beta from what I've heard, but nothing else too major.

    GreenManGaming just tweeted this:

    We'll be sending out keys for FM13 later today. Once this starts there will be another announcement via our blog - James

  47. Just saw this on GAME.. :| FML, I haven't pre-ordered yet.

    "Your bonus item will be emailed to you on the Thursday after you preorder starting 04/10/12. Codes will be emailed every Thursday on a weekly basis. You must preorder by 11:59pm on the Tuesday in order to be emailed your code Thursday of the same week. Any preorders after that date will be added to the following week. The last batch of codes will be sent 01/11/12 for preorders up to 23:59 30/10/12"

    Is this the same everywhere? Seems like a shit way of doing it if I have to wait until next Thursday just to get a key. :/

    I'm better off waiting for demo then. Some places are sending out keys later today, but never seen any of the other bit mentioned

  49. I suspect that will be game saving on man hours but just doing one 'run' of bulk email drops per week, rather than emailing every time a customer buys.

    I'm pretty sure via fm-base/nexway you will just get your code as soon as possiblem, ie tonight if you ordered now.

    I think Steam might be different... Just means paying £29.99 for FM, something I never do -.-
