I would think so. If you are playing it through Steam, it will tell you if it's not.

I'm still in the championship with the Terriers, got to the playoff final with a solid run in with about 15 games to go, got in on points difference. However, lost in the final 3-1 to Blackpool after going 1-0 up. Made a few new signings this year and happy with my squad. Will update at end of season.

Managed to get into a game. Took on the role as New England Revs manager in the MLS, interesting stuff with the cap, draft, trades ect. In my first season I was runner up in the MLS final, then just finished my second, I won the US Cup and the MLS final, into the 1/4 finals of the NACL.
Want to know how unrealistic this game is? England won Euro 2012, beating Spain, Italy and Germany.

Switzerland won the 2014 world cup on my game!

Had a dreadful 2022/23 pre-season as four of my transfer targets rejected sunny Barrow-in-Furness for the likes of Lisbon and Eindhoven. I had to laugh though, as one of my strikers, unable to get a game for Germany, switched allegiances to Kazakhstan :lol: . He had two German caps already though, so how that works out, I have no idea..

I tend to use www.fm-base.co.uk. Free to sign up, which increases the amount and frequency you can download.

All my games are the same on FM. I take over a team, like Everton usually but occasionally a lower league team. I have loads of fun developing the squad and turning them into a good side. But then when I win the league/cl I get really bored with it.

I lose interest primarily because you have no way of identifying with the other teams. At the start I know each team and their players, but after three or four years I couldn't name one player or the manager for most of the Premier League sides. It's worse when you go on a few seasons more and the teams are full of regenerated players.

What the game needs is a Sky Sports news set up. So when you are not in matches, you are told what's going on in the world. You would hear about the signings, who they are and where they came from etc. They would also hype up the big matches and controversial incidents etc.

One complaint that people have had with FM for years is the AI for other teams. When you are developing your own team, it is too easy to get to the top and win everything. The other sides rarely develop their squads - that is something that i think FM13 will have.

Also, you can manage your subscriptions on FM12 - i have Italy, German, French, Spanish and Dutch leagues as playable or watch only, and you can subscribe to their messaging so you hear news from each of the leagues etc. It clogs up your news feed during the season so i cancel them, but then i turn them on again for close season to keep track of latest players etc
