Get yourself on the grid — F1 2020 is now on Xbox One, enhanced for Xbox One X, and I’m here to give you the lowdown on all the cool new features. Let’s get started!

My Team

Ever dreamt of managing your own F1 team? Now you can! Be the 11th team on the grid with F1 2020’s My Team. Create your F1 team with your own colour scheme, logo and sponsors, and choose a teammate using the comprehensive driver rating system. Manage your team’s facilities, resources and time and make sure your staff are properly motivated. Drive the car you’ve developed throughout the season and take your place as the 11th team on the grid. Win the World Championship, using the acclaim you’ve built up to upgrade your facilities, and research the key developments needed to give you the edge.

F1 2020

Driver Career

Embark on an exciting 10-year career and drive your way to the top of F1. Make your driver yours – choose your avatar, number, nationality, and audio name, then choose which F1 team you want to drive for. Start at the bottom and work your way up or fight for championships straight away.

All 22 Circuits, All Drivers, All Teams

Want the original full 22 race season, including new tracks Circuit Zandvoort and Hanoi Circuit? If that doesn’t suit though, you can pick shorter 10 and 16 race season options in both My Team and the 10-season Driver Career.

F1 2020 features all 10 teams, 20 drivers and cars from the 2020 season. The latest car liveries and team colours, including Mercedes AMG Petronas, will be added as a free digital update.

F1 2020

Accessible Handling

If you’re new to F1 games, or have found previous F1 games difficult, this might be for you. We know sometimes getting into F1 games as a new player can be a challenge. We’ve added a range of different options designed to adjust the experience while making sure that it’s as challenging as ever for those of you who love the intensity of sim racing.

Split-Screen

Ever wanted to play F1 with your friends on the couch? Or show your sibling how it’s done? F1 2020 features two-player split-screen, and you’ll be able to show off those skills to against your biggest friends/rivals.

F1 2020

Michael Schumacher DLC

Michael Schumacher is an F1 legend and we’re celebrating his legendary status with the Deluxe Schumacher Edition. You’ll be able to drive as the legend himself in four of his most iconic cars – 1991: Jordan 191, 1994: Benetton B194, 1995: Benetton B195, 2000: Ferrari F1-2000 (which I can’t wait to do!). You also get some themed car liveries, driver customisation items and a unique podium celebration (yes, it is *that* one).

On-Track Additions

We’ve also improved the on-track experience with a simplified ERS system, a rear-view mirror, and a customisable HUD.

Phew, that’s quite a lot! F1 2020 is out now, and it’s definitely time for you to get yourself on the grid!

League of Legends World Championship to feature immersive Mixed Reality experience through Rokid Vision glasses

In Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality News

October 22, 2020 – Rokid, a provider of augmented and mixed reality (AR/MR) glasses, has today announced that its technology will be available for fans to use at this year’s League of Legends (LoL) World Championship tournaments and opening ceremony for the event finals held in Shanghai, China.

Fans of the popular MMORPG game will be able to use a pair of Rokid Vision AR glasses to experience LoL live at the event and to witness an immersive experience featuring a dragon from the game hovering over the Shanghai Oriental Pearl Tower and flying up to them in their seats, transforming the spectators experience and transporting fans to the Summoner’s Rift, an in-game location from LoL.

Furthermore, whilst wearing Rokid Vision, fans will be able to witness the space surrounding them change to include personalized features such as highlights of the game, close-ups of a favorite player, team names, logos, and other information.

Rokid first introduced its Vision mixed reality glasses at AWE USA 2019. Through a combination of Rokid’s binocular optics, AR and AI capabilities, the glasses extend existing user interfaces with augmented and mixed reality (via a USB-C connection) for devices including phones, laptops, gaming consoles, helping to enhance productivity, entertainment, and gaming. The glasses are also 6 Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) enabled, allowing users to experience more natural interactions with the 3D virtual content that is projected within their visual field.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, there are limited seats at the 2020 League of Legends Global Finals, and many fans cannot attend in person to watch. This is therefore the first time that League of Legends fans will be able to use AR glasses to watch the finals, thanks to Rokid.

This is not the company’s first time employing the use of its AR and MR solutions to offer event fans new experiences though. In 2018, Rokid, in partnership with Teslasuit, created an immersive experience for Formula 1 fans. The experience utilized data and camera footage collected from Formula 1 vehicles, and using the Rokid Vision glasses and Teslasuit’s somatosensory haptic suit, reproduced tactile feedback that enabled users to experience the visual impact and physical experience of driving a Formula 1 car.

For more information on Rokid and its augmented and mixed reality offering, please visit the company’s website.

Overall spending on total physical hardware, software and accessories, and digital console and PC content increased 25% over the same period in 2019, according to The NPD Group. In the most current quarter (July – September) sales were up 7% over the same time period last year.

Overall spending on total physical hardware, software and accessories, and digital console and PC content increased 25% over the same period in 2019, according to The NPD Group. In the most current quarter (July – September) sales were up 7% over the same time period last year.

Gains were seen across each of hardware, software and accessories. Strong growth across Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One led to an overall hardware category sales increase of 46% versus the same period last year. Sales of video game accessories including gamepads, headsets, steering wheels and other peripherals increased 39%.

“During the pandemic, many people have turned to video games not only as a source of entertainment, but as a way to stay in touch with friends and family with online play,” says Joan Ramsay, Industry Analyst for Canada Entertainment for the NPD Group. “What we’ve seen, in addition to new players discovering gaming, is more video game players playing for more hours, while spending more in the process. They are discovering that the industry provides a wide variety of ways to play to meet every budget, interest and device.”

Top Performing Video Game Titles

Among the best-performing titles so far this year are:

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
  • The Last of Us: Part II
  • Final Fantasy VII: Remake
  • Super Mario 3D All Stars
  • Ghost of Tsushima
  • Marvel Avengers
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Mario Kart 8: Deluxe
  • NHL 20

“We expect that these strong sales will continue through the end of the year, buoyed by the continued success of Nintendo Switch and the launch of the new hardware platforms for Playstation and Xbox next month,” says Ramsay.
