Sensible World Of Soccer Updated With 2013/14 Squads

SWOS-2013-2014Sensible World of Soccer is by far the greatest football video game ever made. Needless to say with such status it has an incredible following even today with competitions taking place around the world to find the greatest joystick wielders. Elsewhere, dedicated individuals have tasked themselves with the duty of updating SWOS each year with new player rosters and more.

This years latest update arriving from Synchronated SWOS introduces the 2013/14 list of teams and players, kicking them back in time to the 96/97 version of the game. The downloadable updated includes Gareth Bale's arrival at Real Madrid, Mesut Özil's transfer to Arsenal, and even Liverpool's loan signing of Victor Moses from Chelsea. Furthermore the likes of Yeovil Town and Bournemouth FC can now be found in the Championship, as can Queens Park Rangers and Reading following their recent drop down to the second tier.

The patch which can be downloaded from Synchronated SWOS provides both updates for the Commodore Amiga and PC versions of the game. We recently tested this patch out with GOG's version of Sensible World of Soccer 96/97 and we're pleased to announce it works a treat. As the patch's instructions don't explain how to update the GOG version, we've included a quick how-to guide below:

Apply SWOS 13/14 update to GOG's SWOS 96/97

  1. Download Synchronated SWOS Update Patch
  2. Open ZIP file
  3. Open PC folder in ZIP file
  4. Drag contents to C:\GOG Games\Sensible World of Soccer 96-97
  5. Say 'Yes' to overwriting the DATA folder
  6. Delete ENGLISH.exe
  7. Rename sws.exe to ENGLISH.exe
  8. Enjoy!
