Football Manager 2021 Xbox Edition is optimised for play on Xbox consoles and that means, while the game is broadly the same as the PC/Mac version,there are a number of differences.

It is modelled on Football Manager Touch, which is a streamlined and simplified version of the game designed mainly for mobile devices such as tablets.

Since it is a streamlined version of the game, it is, by definition, not as comprehensive. For example, depending on the console you play the game on, the number of countries you can load varies.

On Xbox One, you can select up to five nations in each save. On Xbox Series X/S you can select up to 10 nations.

Football Manager 2021 Xbox Edition is designed specifically for Xbox consoles, so the User Interface (UI) is naturally different, but made to work perfectly with Xbox controllers in order to ensure the best experience.

Graphics on the next-generation consoles Xbox Series X/S will be somewhat better than those on PC/Mac.

You can still play the game online, either through Online Career Mode, Fantasy Draft or Versus Mode – which allows you to challenge your mates in a one-on-one game. Cross-play is supported.
