Football Manager 2021 – How do I run the game in offline mode?

How do I run the game in offline mode?

STEAM

Like previous versions, Football Manager 2021 must be activated and played through online platforms such as the Steam platform. The game can be purchased as a boxed copy or a digital download, but both versions require online platform connectivity and an Internet connection.

 

Football Manager 2021 will need Internet access for its activation process because Steam is a network-based platform. FM2021 customers that do not want Steam to connect to Internet can launch the Steam client in “Offline Mode” after installation. Internet access after installation of the game will only be needed to apply game updates or Steam updates, play ‘online’ network games, use the Steam Workshop, use the Steam Store or use any of the uploading features included in FM2021.

 

We have outlined below the steps to set Steam to Offline Mode.

 

– Start Steam whilst being connected to the Internet – make sure that the ‘Remember my password’ box on the login window is checked

 

– Verify that all game files are completely updated and that there are no current downloads on Steam (‘View’ -> ‘Downloads’)

 

– Launch the game you would like to play offline to verify that there are no further updates to download. Shut down the game and return to Steam once you have confirmed that the game can be played

 

– Go to ‘Steam’ -> ‘Settings’ to ensure that the ‘Don’t save account credentials on this computer’ option is NOT selected

 

– Click on the top left ‘Steam’ menu and select ‘Go Offline’

 

– Select ‘Restart in Offline Mode’. This will restart the Steam client and it will no longer connect to Internet when it is launched

 

If you would like to reconnect Steam to the Internet in the future to download game updates, activate new products or play multiplayer modes on your games, please select ‘Go Online’ from the top left ‘Steam’ menu.

 

 

EPIC

Like previous versions, Football Manager 2021 must be activated and played through online platforms such as the Epic platform. The game can be purchased as a boxed copy or a digital download, but both versions require online platform connectivity and an Internet connection.

 

Football Manager 2021 will need Internet access for its activation process because Epic is a network-based platform. FM2021 customers that do not want Epic to connect to Internet can launch the Epic Launcher in “Offline Mode” after installation. Internet access after installation of the game will only be needed to apply game updates or Epic updates, play ‘online’ network games, use the Epic Store or use any of the uploading features included in FM2021.

 

We have outlined below the steps to set Epic to Offline Mode.

 

Open the Epic Games Launcher.

 

On the Sign-In screen, click on ‘Sign In Later’ at the bottom.

 

Once you’ve done so you should be able to play Football Manager 2021 in offline mode.
