[ September 1st 2004 ]
one of the world's leading publishers and developers
of entertainment software, announces an online
version of the number one selling football management
simulation Championship Manager. Championship
Manager Online will be playable at www.cm-online.com
through subscription from January 2005. Championship
Manager Online is a stand-alone massive multiplayer
online football management simulation. As well
as testing your managerial skills against thousands
of human opponents, the game offers a "buddy league"
mode that lets you compete in a league against
just your friends. Championship Manager Online
is being developed by online games specialist
Jadestone in conjunction with Beautiful Game Studios,
developer of the PC version of Championship Manager.
Manager Online will provide the realism and depth
that have become hallmarks of the series. Choose
to manage a club from one of six national leagues
(England, Scotland, Italy, Spain, Germany and
France) dealing with everything from transfers
and tactics to training. New leagues will be added
and the game will be continually updated to reflect
changes in the real-world of football. You can
also be kept informed of your team's progress
at all times via SMS. Within the game, users are
grouped together in separate "worlds" meaning
that there can only ever be one of each player
and club in each individual world.
Kemp, European managing director of Eidos says:
"Championship Manager Online is the latest part
of our strategy of making the Championship Manager
brand a constant part of every football fans life.
Offering an online version will help attract new
fans to the series as well as provide existing
fans the opportunity to test their managerial
skills against human opposition to see who the
real Championship Manager is."
