We played a preview build of New Star Soccer Manager earlier this year and we were excited about the game’s new more realistic direction. You’ll still be playing soccer matches while also managing your team. That means making sure your individual players mesh well and are happy with the choices you’re making while dealing with sponsors, social media, and other odds and ends. The game will be free-to-play, though, so we’ll have to see how that pans out. It looks like there are some collectible card elements tucked in there.
