Codemasters has released details of the F1 Mobile Game which will have an update in May where fans will be able to access the latest information and tracks.
Being the biggest part of the franchise, the upcoming F1 2020 video game has received the most media attention of late, after it was announced that it will in fact be coming out, and it will, in addition, have a host of new, exciting features.
However, the 2020 game – for PC, XBOX and PlayStation – isn’t the only Codemaster’s product that is set for an update, as the F1 Mobile Game will soon be receiving a change with the latest content, as well as other, new features.
The update – set to come in May – will include 2020 cars and tracks, as well as the full, completed current grid. As was in the last, 11th update, there will also be the option to design a team – a feature set to be included in the computer game.
They are to divide the update in two, where the first May one will get all the above content along with Circuit Zandvoort. A separate update at the end of the same month will see Vietnam’s Hanoi Street Circuit also be added for the fans to race on virtually.
Among the other benefits, the game will have a special 70th Anniversary pack for fans, where they can compete at five of the circuits from the 1950 F1 season. The winners of the one-off events will get special offers/hampers.
Here’s the full release from Codemasters’:
