Codemasters has announced that F1 2020, the next entry in the long-running Formula One series, is coming to Xbox One on July 10, 2020. It's being described by the developer as "our biggest F1 game yet," featuring a major new 'My Team' mode and the return of two-player split-screen.
In regards to the My Team mode, Codemasters says it "allows players to create their own F1 team and take their place alongside the established 2020 line-up, with the new experience offering a unique insight into the world of Formula 1". Furthermore, My Team and Career will now offer the choice of three season lengths to offer more flexibility for players who prefer shorter seasons.
Other new features include the aforementioned return of split-screen and improved accessibility options, while the game will also be available as part of a Deluxe Schumacher Edition, which will feature exclusive in-game content including the ability to drive four of F1 legend Michael Schumacher's classic cars, as well as special liveries and customisation options.
Here's what Codemasters' F1 Franchise Director Paul Jeal had to say on the reveal:
"F1® 2020 promises to be our biggest and most innovative title to date... Our core players will welcome even greater gameplay depth with the introduction of our brand-new My Team feature, alongside three customisable season lengths which allows them to pick their favourite tracks. In the year where Lewis Hamilton is going for his seventh World Championship, we celebrate the greatest F1® driver of all time with our Michael Schumacher Deluxe Edition, which we know will prove popular with our community.”
