Is it possible to have multiple players in career/manager mode? Or to play CPU games? I'm thinking I want to play as Liverpool or a lower-tier team, but I'd LOVE to jump into Serie A, La Liga, and Champions League matches as well.
I know the closest thing to this was tournament mode, which I read is absent from next-gen.
Unfortunately, no. I used to enjoy tournament mode. You could play as multiple teams and play against a bunch of teams you wouldn't normally play in career mode. You would have to set up multiple careers modes to do what you're asking. It's fun to have a couple careers to play on the side, but it's tough to do when you get so invested in one career.
