The 2020 iteration of the world’s most legendary football management simulator, Football Manager, has officially debuted on the Epic Games Store and is available for free for a limited time.

Football Manager has practically been the quintessential, globally renowned sports simulator since its inception in 2004 and even dating back to its origins with Championship Manager in 1992.

Long available on Steam, September 17, 2020 marks the first day it is available on the Epic Games Store and, to commemorate the first release of the iconic title, it will be available for a full week. 

As such, football fans anxious to dip their toes into the deep sea of roster construction and management have their opportunity to do so alongside any general sports fans who might be curious to find out why a nuts-and-bolts simulator has built a following that has transcended the cult niche and into mainstream spheres.

While many unfamiliar fans might not understand the hype behind a simulator when there are actual playable titles like FIFA 20 out there, they can now easily try it out and join the game’s current player base through Epic Games.

Impressively, Daily Star went so far as to give the game a full 100, citing that the “focus on long-term construction of a footballing powerhouse is refreshing.”

On the other hand, the game received just a 5.8 user score, based on 81 user ratings. That might be due to some degree of fatigue from the series for longtime fans, but now that the game is free for a week, you can come to your own conclusions.

The newly surfaced GTA 6 Vice City map leak may have been teased as far back as Grand Theft Auto V, judging by some postcards found in-game.

A bunch of previously dismissed Grand Theft Auto 6 leaks from 2018 have been gaining attention again after a new leak sparked similarities to those images.

With these leaks gaining traction once more, users have been searching for anything that may connect directly to them. As it turns out, some postcards found at a strip club in GTA V could provide some clues.

Redditor ‘MrBurpAlot’ took to the GTA6 section to post their findings, and detailed how the postcards from “Paradise Isle” could be related to the leaked map.

“So, in the changing rooms in the back of the strip club, there are these postcards referring ‘Paradise Isle,’” they wrote. “Initially, I thought the name ‘Paradise Isle’ could be a reference to somewhere like Hawaii or The Bahamas, but after the alleged map leak, it also seems the pictures fit pretty well regarding distance and such.”

“You can also take a look at the 3 islands I pointed out in the top postcard… I personally think the top right island could be a GTA version of Bahamas,” they further added.

As you can see in the leaked map, there are three islands a good distance away from each other that look very similar to how they’re positioned in the postcards. Rockstar is known to tease future games within other titles, so it’s possible that this could be connected to GTA 6.

Could this leak be related to GTA 6?

However, the leaks as a whole have been quite controversial, with one game developer even chiming in that they look fake.

Sadly, there will be no way to know for sure until Rockstar either announces GTA 6 or gives us a much-awaited update on the next game. That said, with GTA V coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, we may be waiting a bit longer for some news.

Hopefully, the next-gen ports of GTA V and GTA Online can offer even more clues on the future title’s location and even release.
