Championship Manager 3 is
expected to be completed around March 1999. Championship Manager 3 will
improve on Championship Manager 2 in every way, but most notably the following.
Firstly, different countries
leagues will be included within one game so that managers will be able
to accept jobs in different countries without the need for stand-alone
versions of the game. CM3 will come supplied with many of The World's top
leagues, and be capable of supporting leagues released at a later date.
The game will be researched and translated by football fans from around
Secondly, a totally new tactical
system and match simulation will be introduced. The user will have total
control over his team's tactics through a combination of individual player
and overall team instructions.
Thirdly, the amount of interaction
between the manager and his chairman, staff, players, supporters, and media
will be greatly increased.
will be the publishers for CM3. CM3 is planned for release sometime next
year. The planned leagues for CM3, with all the exact competition rules,
are as follows:
CM3 will be programming in a
way that leagues can be added easily in the future so if your country is
not included in the above list it may be done as an add-on in the future.
are unable at present to disclose too much about the intended features
for CM3 but the following outlines what we are planning in more detail:
All areas of the game are
to be improved. We will be having a huge database (many times bigger than
in CM2) of players, team staff, teams, managers and officials from all
around the world with many more ratings and hidden ratings to make the
game even more realistic. We will of course be improving greatly on the
CM2 game engine
The game will be configurable
so you can choose the number of leagues you want to run which will mean
less powerful machines can run CM3.
These will be much more
detailed and in depth then in CM2. You will be able to give players individual
instructions from runs to make to the marking of a particular player.
There will be many pre-set
formations and individual player tactics for those who do not want to get
You will be able to assign
different coaches (depending, of course, on your financial resources) to
different areas of training. These areas of training will include, Youth
Squad, Goalkeeping,Fitness, Formation, Technique etc. Coaches will give
you reports on players progress during training sessions.
You will be able to send
specific named scouts to watch specific players or matches or to scout
a specific country or region. They will report back to you with their findings.
This will be similar to
CM2 but will be much improved so it is more intuitive and easier to use
and we will make use of higher resolution, short cut keys, and many more
relevant background pictures from all around the world. We hope to have
some screen shots available in the future.
Newspaper reports and rumour
of possible happenings in the world of football. We hope to make this configurable
so that you can choose to get the information most relevant to you. An
assistant manager will be available to take away some of your management
tasks if you feel you have too much work to do.
