Recognising the current multiple F1 World Championship record holder, Codemasters today looks at the cars of Michael Schumacher.
The in-game trailer, which features in the F1 2020 Deluxe Schumacher Edition, the official videogame of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship, remembers the greatest F1 driver of all time with a mix of archive photography and F1 2020 gameplay.
Players will be able to drive four of his most iconic vehicles from the 1991 Jordan 191 that launched Schumacher’s career.
The 1994 Benetton B194 that won his first World Championship after winning six of the first seven races and the 1995 Benetton B195 that brought Schumacher his second World Championship and Benetton’s first and only Constructors World Championship.
Finishing with the 2000 Ferrari F1-2000, the car delivered 10 pole positions, 10 race victories and secured Ferrari its first driver’s World Championship since South African Jody Scheckter in 1979.
The F1® 2020 Deluxe Schumacher Edition, launching with three days early access, also comes with exclusive themed car liveries and driver customisation items, including a unique podium celebration.
Players who purchase either F1 2020 Seventy or Deluxe Schumacher Edition will have access to the Ferrari F2004.
The car, which brought Schumacher his record-breaking seventh World Championship, a real fan favourite since being introduced to the franchise back in F1 2017, has now been updated with #1 added to the nosecone and his name embossed on the headrest.
“As part of the 70th anniversary of F1, it’s fitting to celebrate the most successful World Champion of all time,” said Lee Mather, F1 Franchise Game Director at Codemasters.
“We are equally excited to finally bring the Jordan 191 and Benetton B194 to the F1 series as both have been long-requested by our community, alongside two more of his iconic cars.”
F1 2020 Deluxe Schumacher Edition will be released on Tuesday 7th 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.
And if all that is not enough there will be a Limited Edition F1 2020 Steelbook, also featuring Michael Schumacher, will be available in local markets via selected retailers.
