F1 2020 is finally out! Preorders of the Michael Schumacher Edition can start their engines in the premier class of motorsports on July 7, while the regular edition is going to be released on July 10.
The twelfth F1 game by Codemasters can be played on Xbox One, PS4, PC and Google Stadia. It includes many new features that racers can try out.
For the first time, you will be able to send your own racing team to the grid. ‘My Team’ mode brings a deep management feature to the game and combines it with the career mode.
The career mode and the management system are strongly connected to driver ratings, which are new in F1 2020 as well. Each driver is now being rated in several areas like racecraft or experience. These ratings result in a total score. The higher the score, the better the driver will be on track. Getting a fast driver on your team will cost you way more money in ‘My Team’.
Two completely new tracks have been added to the game as well. Players can now race on the banks of Zandvoort and the streets of Hanoi.
This year, Codemasters pays tribute to the most successful F1 driver of all time. The Michael Schumacher Deluxe Edition grants access to four iconic cars from the legend’s career.
There are many more features in the game like the return of the split screen mode, driver ratings and full Formula 2 seasons.
