One of the biggest selling points of the upcoming F1 2020 game is the Michael Schumacher themed “Deluxe Edition” DLC. It includes four of the iconic cars from Schumacher’s career among other goodies.
Though until now, all we had were some profile shots of the cars included in the DLC. Today Codemasters released gameplay screenshots and footage of all four cars in action for our viewing pleasure.
We still have a little more than a month before the July 10th release date for F1 2020 (fingers crossed) but I have to admit the more I see of it, the more hyped I’m getting. Though I promise to not let that get the better of me should I get the opportunity to review the game before its release.
For now, check out the new screenshots and gameplay video narrated by Will Buxton below. If you want more info about everything that comes with the Deluxe Schumacher Edition, check out my original post on the F1 2020’s announcement or check out the press release below as well.
