Codemasters, the developer of the F1 racing games, have revealed new features for the upcoming F1 2020 game. The first feature they introduced is ‘My Team’, which is a new driver-manager feature.
Players will need to make off-track decisions that will boost driver and staff motivation. This will in turn generate funds to improve facilities, upgrade car parts and sign a new teammate.
The trailer highlights the range of player choice on offer. From F2™ integration to shorter seasons, F1 2020 customization options allow players more control over the way they race. Players can take advantage of shorter seasons with 10 or 16 race options. For new players, the game introduces simplified menus and driving assists which are in addition to core F1 and F2 handling.
Adding further levels of personalization, the all new Podium Pass allows players to race, earn and unlock. Each season will enable players to unlock free customization items by racing in their favorite game modes and earning XP. Custom cosmetic items include car liveries and race equipment such as gloves, overalls and helmets, and podium emotes.
Following feedback from both drivers and players, F1 2020 includes several on-track improvements. ERS, as in real-life, is activated with a simple button press, making the maneuver much more natural to execute. At the request of the F1 community, the game has introduced a virtual rear view mirror making it easier to identify opponents and fend off any potential attack from rivals.
“In a little less than a week, our players will finally be able to experience all the innovations in F1 2020. This year we have created new features which cater to every type of race fan,” said Franchise Game Director at Codemasters, Lee Mather. “From My Team, which gives players a real insight into the world of Formula 1, to the more casual split-screen, F1 2020 is the ultimate virtual racing experience to accompany the revised 2020 F1 season.”
F1 2020 will release on July 10th, 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia (MSRP $59.99). Players who purchase the F1 2020 Deluxe Michael Schumacher Edition (MSRP $69.99) will receive exclusive content and three days early access starting on July 7th, 2020.
