F1 2020 Game: Release Date, Online Gameplay, Trailer, Career Mode, Cars, Tracks And More

F1 2020 will be the next game from Codemasters as they continue to push their yearly release of the Formula 1 game.

With F1 2019 arriving two months ahead of its usual schedule, it was a resounding success with a brand new career mode and the addition of the 2018 & 2019 F2 seasons.

So what do we know about F1 2020? Here are the details.

Release Date

The F1 2020 release date is yet to be confirmed, but with the game releasing in June last year we can expect something similar again.

This game will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC - with the Xbox Series X and PS5 likely to follow.

 

Gameplay

Last year's gameplay looked incredible and there's no doubt it will look even better.

A few bugs and issues will no doubt be smoothed out going into the new version of the game and the F1 2020 handling model will take a leap forward.

It would be good to see the user interface and HUD changed to be less busy. The deployment of ERS, changing of engine modes and other settings are very complicated and tricky to do effectively.

Codemasters need to make a decision if they want to leave everything at the driver's fingertips or delegate some decisions, like ERS management, to the pit wall like in real life.

Career Mode

The career mode in F1 2019 took a big step forward with the introduction of F2 and a feeder set of races with two rivals that followed you up to F1.

It looked beautiful and played well, it was a really immersive experience that we hope will continue to engage the user.

 

Online

Online multiplayer is very fun when it works and is adjudicated properly - unfortunately, it is plagued with reckless drivers who do not adhere to the rules.

It would be great to see a more rewarding system for following the rules and harsher punishments for those who don't follow the rules.

It would be great to see split-screen racing make a return. While most multiplayer does take place online, there are still plenty of times when split-screen in wanted. WRC 8, released last year, included split-screen racing and it was a big hit with players.

Cars

We'd love to see more classic cars brought into the game as well as more customisation for our online races.

Codemasters should at least take a look at some of the less-successful but still notable cars from F1 history. The six-wheeled Tyrrell or 1978 Brabham “fan car” would be welcome additions to the current crop Codemasters have.

Tracks

Two new circuits are being brought into the new season, but we would love to see classic tracks brought into the game.

In an ideal world we would get Imola, Turkey, and classic versions of Silverstone, Hockenheim and Spa too - perhaps this could be DLC?
