And they’re off or at least they have been virtually and now we have the first in game footage of F1 2020.
The physical F1 season might have been grounded to a halt due to COVID-19 and taken to the screen, soon you will be able to join the race.
Codemasters® today showcased the first full in-game trailer for F1® 2020, the official videogame of the 2020 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™.
Against the backdrop of the rousing F1® theme music written by composer Brian Tyler, the trailer celebrates the 70th anniversary of Formula 1® with intense racing wheel-to-wheel battles on some of the season’s most demanding circuits.
“The first in-game trailer has become a key moment in the F1® game campaign and this year is no exception,” said Lee Mather, F1® Franchise Game Director at Codemasters.
“Each season we raise the visual benchmark, and with more circuits and teams getting new liveries, we can’t wait for the season to start and for players to be able to race.”
The trailer also features Formula 2™ which makes its return following its successful debut last year.
Now fully integrated into Career mode, F2™ allows players to choose from full, half-season and three-race challenge options, creating the ultimate F1® training ground.
Players will have access to the 2019 F2™ season at launch with the 2020 season coming as a free update later in the year.
F1® 2020 will be released on Friday 10th July 2020 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X, Windows PC (DVD and via Steam), and Google Stadia.
Players who purchase the Michael Schumacher Deluxe Edition will receive exclusive content and three days early access.
