Codemasters has released a new F1 2020 gameplay video, featuring the new split-screen mode from Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve. Ahead of this weekend’s final Virtual Grand Prix before the new season gets underway, the three-lap race, featuring both Valtteri Bottas’ Mercedes and Lance Stroll’s Racing Point, was recorded by the F1 2020 development team.
The Canadian Grand Prix has been a staple of the F1 calendar since the late ‘60s, with Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve holding the mantle in almost every F1 season since 1978. The circuit features some of the heaviest braking zones around with a long straight before the hairpin on turn 10 and the famous final chicane beside the wall of champions on the start/finish straight.
For more social play with friends, two-player split-screen makes a welcome return to F1 2020. Captured in-game, the race shows several corner adjustments and aesthetic changes made to the Montreal track.
This Sunday, June 14, F1 drivers, including George Russell who’s looking to secure the Virtual Grand Prix Championship, return for the final Virtual Grand Prix on F1 2019. The live broadcast starts at 10am PT / 1pm ET on the official Formula 1 YouTube, Twitch, Weibo, and Facebook channels alongside several international broadcast partners.
F1 2020 will be released on July 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox One X, PC/Steam, and Google Stadia. Players who purchase the Michael Schumacher Deluxe Edition will receive exclusive content and three days early access. Standard Editions is priced at $59.99, with the Deluxe Michael Schumacher Edition priced at $69.99.
