Critically Acclaimed F1 2020 Now Available
Codemasters® today celebrates the launch of F1® 2020, the official video game of the 2020 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™ for the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One and Xbox One X, PC (Steam) and Google Stadia. With two new circuits, the introduction of driver-manager feature, My Team, improved on-track options, and the reintroduction of split-screen and more, F1 2020 caters to race fans of all levels and experience.
New simplified menus and assists enable drivers to spend more time competing and less time in the gravel. On-track improvements include ERS activation, which, as in real life, is now a simple button press, and the introduction of the virtual rear-view mirror. Following its success last season, F2™ returns with three-race, half and full-season options. The F2 2020 season update will be added later in the year as a free digital download.
For fans of Michael Schumacher, the F1 2020 Deluxe Schumacher Edition is available with additional in-game content and four iconic cars from his legendary career. Both editions come with added virtual currency which can unlock Podium Pass VIP. Players can race, earn and unlock more cosmetic items and collect enough currency for the following VIP season.
My Team, a new driver-manager feature, gives players the opportunity to create a new Formula 1 team and take their place alongside the established 2020 driver line up. From car design to hiring a teammate and finding sponsors, players now have the added pressure of making sure everything runs smoothly both off and on the track. Players can also choose from the original full 22 race season, and shorter 10 and 16 race season options in both My Team and the 10-season Career mode.
F1 2020 features all 10 teams, 20 drivers and cars from the 2020 season. The latest car liveries and team colors, including Mercedes AMG Petronas, will be added as a free digital update.
“F1 2020 is two years in the making, and we are excited with the level of innovation for players of all levels,” said F1 Franchise Game Director at Codemasters, Lee Mather. “Whether someone wants a split-screen battle with friends, a 10-race season or a full driver-manager experience, F1 2020 gives players the option to race their way.”
F1 2020 (MSRP $59.99) and F1 2020 Deluxe Michael Schumacher Edition (MSRP $69.99) are available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox One X, PC (Steam), and Google Stadia (digital only).
