NACON and Cyanide have released Pro Cycling Manager 2020 on PC and Tour de France 2020 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Tour de France 2020 is also coming to the PC for the first time, in August.
The official game of the Tour de France lets you play with the teams participating in the Grande Boucle with their official jerseys. Other invited teams will also be playable, including Circus-Wanty Gobert and Bingoal-Wallonie Bruxelles.
As well as the 21 stages of the Grande Boucle, many other official races are available in Tour de France 2020: the Critérium du Dauphiné, Paris-Nice, Paris-Roubaix – and for the first time – Liège-Bastogne-Liège, also known as “The Old Lady”. Players can also create their own competitions in My Tour mode by selecting stages from those available.
In Pro Leader mode in Tour de France 2020, players can create their own cyclist, select their speciality and develop their skills over multiple seasons. In Pro Team mode, players take control of a whole team of cyclists: switch between teammates during races, devise strategies and recruit new cyclists. And for the first time, players can enable a first-person camera for unprecedented immersion and also experience a completely redesigned Time-Trial mode.
In Pro Cycling Manager 2020, players step into the shoes of a manager in its extensive Career mode. After choosing a team, players must manage their cyclists’ training, schedule races, invest in better equipment, find new talent to recruit, keep morale high, and sign contracts with new sponsors to increase their budget and improve race results against a combative AI.
The dashboard has been improved to provide better visibility, and an assistant manager is now available for the first time to help with planning the race schedule. Players can take part in over 230 races and 650 stages in Pro Cycling Manager 2020.
