Football Manager continues to be one of the biggest football games in the world, and FM 21 is giving fans a multitude of new ways to play and lead their team to glory. Here’s everything you need to know about the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S release date.

If you’re looking for an immersive, detailed managerial experience, Football Manager has always been the go-to. It really lets you take the reins over every aspect of managing a club, with far more depth than something like a FIFA career mode could offer.

That said, for a few years now, FM has been limited to PC, Mac, and mobile — but that’s all about to change.

Here’s what we know about FM21 on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Football Manager 21 Xbox release date

As per the above tweet, there’s not long to wait to get your hands on FM21 for the Xbox, with the game slated to launch on Tuesday, December 1.

The game is already available to players, having released on November 10 to those playing on other platforms, but with the launch of the next-generation consoles developer Sports Interactive likely wanted to get things perfected for an Xbox launch.

Will I get a free upgrade if I already bought FM21?

To put it bluntly, no. You are not eligible to receive a free Xbox upgrade of Football Manager 21 if you already own the game on PC or Mac.

Other games and developers have offered free upgrades for games in the same console family — e.g. EA’s Dual Entitlement feature lets players upgrade their copy of FIFA 21 from Xbox One to Xbox Series X, or PS4 to PS5, completely free.

Can I transfer save data?

As FM21 will be using Microsoft’s Play Anywhere technology, players will be able to carry on their hard work on both Xbox and PC and shift between the two.

As such, there will not be any necessity to “transfer” save data — as long as you’re logged into the same account on both iterations, you’ll be good to go.

So, that’s the key info we know about Football Manager 21 on Xbox so far. It’s not long before the game officially arrives on the Microsoft console, so if you’ve held out on buying the game so far and have an Xbox, you might want to consider waiting a little while longer.

It’s worth noting that due to device constraints, the Xbox version of the game won’t be as fleshed out as its PC counterpart — but it should still offer a boatload of fun and a chance to take even the lowliest teams to international glory.

What is code:truck error in Apex Legends & how to fix it? Latest from EA

After Apex Legends received its Holo-Day Bash update, many fans are reporting a brand new code:truck error that’s preventing them from entering the game. Here’s what you need to know about the odd server issue that everyone seems to be getting.

Earlier today, the Holo-Day Bash update went live for Apex Legends, which added in a slew of new content, including some skins and a brand new LTM.

Unbeknownst to players, it seems to have added something else to the game that’s causing a lot of people headaches as they try to log-in.

The Apex community is now reporting a new error code:truck when they attempt to log-in, which is causing some major issues and seems to be caused by the Holo-Day Bash update, although this part is a bit unclear. Here’s what you need to know about the error and if there’s anything that can be done to solve it.

What is the code:truck error in Apex Legends

According to the error messages seen by players, either the game itself or the player is “out of sync with the server.” What that actually means is anyone’s guess.

What we do know about code:truck is that it’s preventing people from logging into the game. It’s affecting a large number of people on all platforms, although the exact extent of this is unclear as of the time of this writing.

Hopefully more information will be available soon.

What can be done to fix the code:truck error?

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a surefire fix for the error. As of 7:10 EST on December 1, 2020, Electronic Arts and Respawn haven’t released a fix for the bug. That being said, they did comment on the error, saying they are looking into the problem.

Beyond that, however, we have no update as to what’s causing this error for some players, how extensive is the problem, and, most importantly, what the fix is for it.

Over on Reddit, some players are reporting on a few different fixes but none of the them are confirmed. One player reported that they were able to workaround the issue by changing the date and time on their PS4 and few others confirmed its success.

Hopefully a fix becomes available in the near future to avoid it spreading to other people, which would result in the amount of players logging into Apex Legends to plummet.
