F1 2020 | New V1.08 Update Now Available

Codemasters have released another new update to the Formula One 2020 racing title on PC and Console, adding several quality of life improvements to the new game.

The latest build release for F1 2020, deployed over the last 48 hours by development team Codemasters, is more of an attempt to fix some of the outstanding bugs and issues within the game, rather than adding significant new content or gameplay features.

Despite F1 2020 already proving itself to be a very solid racing title, the game still suffers from a few outstanding issues that Codemasters remain hard at work improving in the background, and this V1.08 update is very much the results of those labours as the studio address several key issues still outstanding within the game - details of which can be seen below:

  • In Driver Career players with driver moves set to off can now move teams.
  • In My Team Career, the vehicle performance index will correctly update when unprotected upgrades are lost due to a regulation change.
  • Nvidia DLSS anti-aliasing is now available on graphics cards that support it.

Codemasters have confirmed the studio still intend to release a 2020 Formula 2 (free) update for the sim, and we are also expecting further AI tweaks to the game to better reflect the 2020 teams and drivers performances now that the real world season has started to get underway.

F1 2020 is available now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

And to think that the DLSS is not even present on Assetto Corsa Competizione... a game that sells dreams on graphics and animations for nothing.

Yes, what a pity that there is no DLSS in ACC.

The worst is during live events with numerous frame rate issues, some effects seems disabled and shadows issues too. Sometimes it's really a pain to watch.

Did i miss something or there is still no Teams's performance update for career/myteam ?
I also somewhat wait for the "Ferrari nerfed, Mercedes gods-gift performance" point in the changelog :D

But at least good to see, how F1 2020 actually receives ongoing support.^^

My biggest hope is that they are ignoring the team performance to work full time on the new tracks added to the F1 calendar, but that is 99.9% not happening.

When will the Alfa Romeo's steering wheel be set right? Can the steering wheel indicator be realistic? Can Chinese translation errors be fixed? Chinese version from 2018 to 2020 steering wheel gear display font is too small!

It's hard to imagine that there will be such a game in 2020. Even the steering wheel UI is unified. Have cm ever seen such a racing game?

The sound of Ferrari's engine makes people uncomfortable and harsh. Moreover, the position of the steering wheel is too high, and the electronic display screen of Williams' steering wheel is too small. When you open the game, you connect to the Internet and wait. After a game, you are still waiting. Have you ever played your own game? I think Codemasters are going in the wrong direction. They should focus on driving vehicles instead of F2 and online
