Cancel your plans for the rest of the week, it’s time to start managing your club, your way.
Football Manager 2020, the latest title in the long-running series from Sports Interactive™ and SEGA® Europe Ltd. is out on Windows and Mac via Steam and is available on Stadia. For those who prefer managing on the go, both Football Manager 2020 Touch and Football Manager 2020 Mobile also is on iOS and Android with the Nintendo Switch release of Football Manager Touch to follow soon.
Football Manager has been included as a launch title on a new platform as it takes its place in the day one line-up for Google’s Stadia.
The full release of FM20 includes a host of improvements from the pre-release Beta, including an updated match engine, updated player and club information as well as lots of optimisations and fixes thanks to the feedback that we received during the Beta testing phase. Furthermore, access to the Steam Workshop and both the pre-game and in-game editors is now available. Fans who have already started their managerial career on the pre-release Beta can carry their save over to the full game.
With new features concentrating on player development (through the Playing Time Pathway and Development Centre) and each club’s unique identity (via Club Vision), FM20 looks set to be the most engrossing entry in the long-running series’ history.
The game has been well-received by fans and critics alike with a current Metacritic score of 85. Reviewers have called FM20 “A sizeable improvement on last year’s already excellent game” (Metro), “Another superb entry that feels tailor-made for the series’ most dedicated players” (PC Gamer) and “the best version of the game yet” (PCGamesN).
This positivity has been echoed in user feedback to the FM20 pre-release Beta, which has been the best received to date. Many within the FM community have praised the game’s new features, both big and small, while Steam reviews are showing as ‘Very Positive’.
