Football Manager 2020 coming to Google Stadia

Recommended Posts

Sure it's too early to answer (and kind of a niche question) but will it be possible to add editor files with this? I'm sure there won't be a steam workshop, but just the files on a thumb drive or something like that?

The big draw to running FM on Stadia looks like it'll be increased processing speed, and I have some editor files that are too big and slow to run on my computer. Like, if you can get one of those 12-tier England files to run at normal FM speed, I think people would be interested in that.

Really looking forward to this! Been playing FM Touch for the past few years but I think this news will mean I go back to playing the full FM as it will run on my Pixelbook.

Indeed, I would subscribe if you could load all the leagues, would be amazing really, if there's a game for Stadia, Gloud or cloud gaming is this one.

Otherwise I would just stick to PC, that's the selling point and what makes the difference.

Good news. :thup:

To be honest, though, this would probably only interest me if you could still use mods (which I highly doubt). If not, then I'll stick with Steam.

You don't have to subscribe to Stadia to get games, you can just buy games on that system like normal.

This has the potential to be huge, for example for people who don't have a good laptop, load up your save at a mate's house to show them stuff, play a big final round your mates', mess about with your team on your phone/tablet.

And yes, get through seasons as fast as your fingers can manage it.

But mods would be impossible, fake Germany only, that kind of thing.... Fascinating!

It sounds fantastic to me. Absolutely fantastic. The idea of being able to open up a Chrome browser at work and spending half an hour going through my shortlists or training schedules would be a very welcome addition to my FM experience.

Personally,  (because I want the option to play FM anywhere, even though I don't really have the time anymore) I currently play FM on five devices. Three of those devices were actually purchased pretty much solely for use with FM, so Google Stadia would definitely allow me to scale back on my hardware. Also, even my best spec PC, although it has a pretty grunty processor, it only has the inbuilt graphics card. So, the in-game graphics experience via Google Stadia would probably be a big improvement, especially with gigabit fiber at home. 

For those questioning the viability of add-ons: I'm making an assumption here, but if we create a game on our local PCs using editor files, then save the game file to the cloud, in theory, we'll be able to continue our games via Google Stadia.

Sounds interesting, and exciting as one who always struggled a bit with the processing and PC specs. However, I'm not convinced our internet here would cope.

This could be amazing news! My machines are not that great, since their main purpose is work and the requirements are not heavy, add to the fact that FM is literally the only game I play. I'll wait for more news.

I really really really hope mods with at least face packs and kit packs will be included. Don't think any word could describe how disappointed I would be if they didn't have kit / face packs :( 

Imagine loading all the leagues and it processing immediately. Wow. Add in custom leagues as well and you'll have the ultimate journeyman save!

I know it's still early but given games on stadia can effectively be played on any device with a chrome browser does this mean football manager 20/fm touch 20 the full game can be played on my samsung phone rather than the usual fmm?

 

Not sure how that would equate onto a smaller screen?

Given the game would be stored on Google's servers, I'm not seeing how face packs, kit packs, skins or any other mods would work with it, since you wouldn't have access to their servers to add those packs, and given the licensing issues around the face/kit packs, league names, etc, I doubt either SI or Google would want to risk the ire of EA (who hold most of those licences) in letting people use them.

Would work the same way as Steam workshop no? Everything there is located on Steam's services.

Nope, it downloads it to your PC on the Steam Workshop - plus, they've not said that there will be Steam on the Stadia, so it would appear that this version of the game works outside of Steam, like the mobile and touch versions for tablets.

At launch Stadia will only be compatiable with its own Pixel smartphones.

Since this is absolutely fantastic idea; I am not sure about internet speed and all other features.

FM 2020 regular version: Take my money.

If I’m not wrong,some moons ago someone from SI said they couldn’t make big changes in the game cause they had a significant number of users in low specs (not in this exactly words), could this mean that in the future (in case that stadia actually works and FM continues there) FM can actually look on doing big upgrades in the game without worry about losing players?

Maybe in the distant future. But not any time soon. Stadia won't even be available across the world and will require a fast and stable internet connection many can't get access to. It's hard to see it being anything more than a small percentage of sales - most will still be playing the traditional way for several years yet at least.

Is it only the full FM going to be available to Stadia? Or is it going to have FM Classic/Touch also available to stadia?

Hoping this will be the full PC game and let me play it everywhere, I didn't get 19 because my laptop won't do it justice and 18 was too slow.

Last one I really enjoyed was 16 so hope a break and the new platform will reignite my FM passion.

Interesting. 

I trialed 'Shadow' and FM was one of the better experiences as that Xeon CPU crunched through processing much better than my crappy i5 7300hq. 

As FM isn't about graphics, the video compression didn't bother me. 

Will likely check this out on release.

You will only need 10 Mbps for the 720p 60 fps, so it is pretty acessible to be honest.

Will this work on iOS?

At the launch no, but the stadia devs said they have plans in include all smartphone platforms in the future.

Our internet is unstable to say the least - wasn't the speed I was to concerned about it's being to stay connected.

As I said, in theory if you(we) can maintain at least 10 mbps connection, then you are able to enjoy stadia without a problem. In my opinion, unless you got a really bad ISP, 10 mbps is easy to get with a 50 mbps internet.
