Codemasters have followed the Michael Schumacher inspired DLC and premium edition of F1 2020 by releasing DLC for the Keep Fighting Foundation that was inspired by the legendary driver after he suffered traumatic brain injuries in a skiing accident in 2013.
The premium DLC will include a car livery, podium emote, helmet, gloves, suit and badge, and will be available from 11th August on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Google Stadia. Proceeds from the sales will go straight to the Keep Fighting Foundation.
Lee Mather, F1 Franchise Game Director at Codemasters said, “It was an honour for the studio to focus on Michael’s record-breaking F1 career for the F1 2020 Deluxe Schumacher Edition. We are equally proud to support the Keep Fighting Foundation. Many of our players regard Michael as the greatest of all time, and we know the exclusive items will prove incredibly popular.”
F1 2020 released earlier this month with a new My Team mode the biggest addition for this year’s entry. In our F1 2020 review, Tom said:
If it wasn’t for the addition of My Team, F1 2020 would go down as being great for newcomers, but past the best before date for those who have enjoyed recent iterations. Some elements are now very tired, but being able to oversee the running of your own team proves to be incredibly satisfying and just enough of a distraction – for now. F1 2020 highlights just how much of a team sport Formula 1 is, and that can only be a good thing.
At the start of this month, Codemasters updated the game with the Mercedes W11 black livery. While it’s a few weeks after the game’s release on 10th July, the timing was great to emphasise the reason for the livery change, with Mercedes making the change from their traditional silver livery in a statement of support for the Black Lives Matter movement, alongside a commitment to improve diversity within the team and sport.
