News - Football Manager 2020 Patch 20.1.2 - Update Beta to Final
Sports Interactive have released the 20.1.2 patch which updates the Football Manager 2020 Beta to Final retail version.

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.

If you were already on the pre-release Beta, the game should automatically update via Steam to the full version.

Date Released: November 18th, 2019
File size: 380MB

As usual the update is save game compatible, so you don't have to start a new save game.
To update you will need to close down Football Manager 2020 (or Football Manager Touch 2020) and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam.
If that doesn't do the trick, then verify the game cache will.

If you encounter any issues post update, please use the official FAQ for troubleshooting suggestions. You can also contact [email protected] or use or SI's FM20 Bugs Forum for further support.

    I really wish they would actually say what the changes where.... Bugs me they say match engine changes. That could mean anything.
