Codemasters have finally released their first official F1 2020 gameplay trailer, and it shows a selection of new features.
We have already seen some gameplay in the form of two hot laps. We first saw gameplay of Max Verstappen driving around the new Zandvoort circuit, which you can watch here. We then saw Carlos Sainz taking his McLaren for a spin around Spain showing the revised track layout. Watch that video here.
This F1 2020 trailer gives us a quick glimpse of other features that will be in this year’s game. It shows us the new car liveries properly for the first time, including the stunning AlphaTauri livery. It also shows the new Renault chassis, which is very reminiscent of last year’s Mercedes!
There is also a large emphasis on the drivers in this years F1 game. The trailer almost replicates the official Formula 1 race intro. It shows each driver up close, combined with quick snippets of footage of racing. This does highlight the insane amount of detail that has gone in to each driver model, as each driver looks stunning recreated.
For the first time in a long time, we also see new celebrations when drivers get out of their car after a hard win. There are also glimpses of new podium celebrations, although Codemasters decided to show Daniel Ricciardo on the top spot of the podium. We’re not quite sure how realistic that is, but we wont hold it against Codies for wishing Daniel good luck!!
The trailer then goes on to include a glimpse of Formula 2, as we are expecting to be able to race a full season of Formula 2 in career mode this year. We’re hoping we can start our career in Formula 2, before progressing in to Formula 1 in F1 2020. In similar fashion to last year’s game, F1 2020 will launch with the 2019 Formula 2 season, and the 2020 Formula 2 season will be implemented in a free update.
Although not showing too much solid action in this quick cut gameplay trailer, it does show the beauty of F1 2020. It is certain to be a good looking game, that is for sure!
F1 2020 will be released on July 10th 2020, and will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia for the first time.
