F1 2020 TV Spot Trailer Brings Us Together

The F1 2020 season is finally about to get underway, so today we’re sharing the F1 2020 TV Spot for the upcoming official Formula 1 game from Codemasters. This year F1 2020 introduces split-screen racing and two new circuits including Hanoi, Vietnam and Zandvoort, Netherlands.

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed F1 2019 at launch last year, giving it 4 stars and reporting that, “as the years go on, the F1 games slowly blur more lines with real life, and soon we’ll be wondering whether the gameplay footage is actually from last weekend’s race.” With the real-world F1 2020 season officially kicking off in Austria this weekend, we’ll have plenty of ways to compare the pair.

Watch the official F1 2020 TV Spot Trailer and find out more about the game below:

Deluxe Schumacher Edition:

You’ll also receive exclusive content including themed car liveries and driver customisation items, including a unique podium celebration.

Two Player Split-Screen:

For more social play with your friends/rivals, two-player split-screen makes a welcome return to F1® 2020. 

One. Last. Time. The final Virtual Grand Prix is here, and we’re marking the occasion with something special. Today, we’re focusing on F1 2020’s new split-screen mode by showing off a three-lap race from Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, featuring Valtteri Bottas’ Mercedes and Lance Stroll’s Racing Point.

The Canadian Grand Prix has been a staple since the late ‘60s, and the race in Montreal has been a regular occurrence in the F1 calendar since the late ‘70s. With well-known features such as that last chicane by the Wall of Champions, and of course, groundhogs (which commentator Anthony Davidson, unfortunately, knows all about), the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is a firm fan favourite.

For more social play with your mates/sibling/rivals, two-player split-screen makes a welcome return to F1 2020. We’ve captured this in-game, and the race doesn’t just show off split-screen, but also shows several corner adjustments and aesthetic changes made to the Montreal track.

F1 2020 launches on July 10, 2020 on Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms. Make sure to check back on launch day for Rocket Chainsaw’s in-depth review and as always for more information head to the official website.
