Soccer Story releasing everywhere but Google Stadia on November 29

PanicBarn and No More Robots' Soccer Story, which was previously announced for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Google Stadia and PC (Steam) has had its release date revealed - alongside a small revision to the platforms it will release on.

The game's Google Stadia release is now out, while the new November 29 release date is in; the game will still be launching for Xbox Game Pass at launch. A new trailer has been released to commemorate the release date announcement:

London, November 15th, 2022 - As Soccer Mania sweeps around the world, No More Robots (Descenders, Hypnospace Outlaw) and PanicBarn (Not Tonight) are officially announcing that Soccer Story, a comedy open-world RPG about saving the world with a soccer ball is launching on November 29th.

Everyone on the team is very pleased to be part of the one Soccer Story this year that instead of revolving around blatant corruption and human rights violations is instead about Pandas, Ninjas…and you know, an appropriate amount of corruption. - No More Robots

A year after The Calamity tore apart the very foundations of soccer (it’s called football actually) as we know it. Since then, Soccer Inc. has taken full control of the sport and has BANNED anyone from even CONSIDERING kicking a ball around. Christiano Ronaldo? More like, Ronal-no!

Luckily, a magical football has descended from the heavens and has chosen you, The Savior of Soccer, and, –you’ll get a kick out of this – you’ve been tasked with saving the future of the sport and bringing harmony to the world once more.

Of course, there are two offsides to every story, so let’s give the obviously cartoonishly evil soccer-deniers the benefit of the doubt and let the story unfold.

Drop your soccer ball and play anywhere! The world is full of goals, puzzles and secrets - it's up to you to find them!

Play a single-player story full of quirky characters, quests, rogue refs, and wacky soccer-adjacent sports

Build your soccer career and do battle against the fiercest soccer teams like literal sharks, toddlers, old-age pensioners, and ninjas

Save soccer and restore peace and harmony to the world

Grab a friend for a four-player local multiplayer match mode with a full roster of teams and animal captains


If you aren’t into soccer and are a little overwhelmed (and/or are American), we’ll leave you with a quote from one of the greatest philosophers of our time, the late Johan Cruyff:  “If I wanted you to understand it, I would have explained it better.”
