Championship Manager goes online in Europe

The popular football franchise begins its transition to massively multiplayer online in time for the World Cup, with its launch today in Nordic.

by

Eidos has announced the launch of Championship Manager Online, a new massively multiplayer online football simulation. The Jadestone-produced title is available now in Nordic countries.

Although it is initially available in Sweden and Norway only, it is expected to roll out internationally after the localised launch. Players will be able to take charge of a club from 1 of 11 different national leagues (including England, Scotland, Spain, Italy, and Germany), and the in-game data will be continually updated to reflect transfers and changes in the real world.

The game will track the performances of thousands of players online and also give you the option to set up a 'buddy league' for you to compare your skills against friends or colleagues.

I hope it comes out in Australia. Championship manager is the best sports sim series ever.

To bad the team behind champions manager is now making the Football manager series.. and it already has an online mode.. and the 360 version is code free too, so while it may not be officially out in the US but its import friendly

I wish more sports games made for the US had continuously updated rosters like this game. It would extend the play life of your favorite sports sim tremendously...which is probably exactly the sports games haven't made it a standard feature yet. :(

This could be a hit in Europe, but I just don't see it working anywhere else. Good idea, hope it is implemented well.
