Already done, beta invites should be going out winthin the next week or so. From the early press stuff I've seen it appears they've fixed some of the physics issues that the previous game had, I'm looking forward. :)

What benefit does pre-ordering have? Maybe just wait for reviews and then buy if it seems good.

According to THIS beta access was given based on sign-ups? But 10% is a nice discount!

The game on Steam is like R329 for the standard and R389 for the Schumacher edition (or R350 if you own F1 2019 on Steam)

Easy decision if you're on PC and are a fan of F1. The new Team mode sounds cool, and I really like Zandvoort.

Every year the YouTubers go to Codemasters, give their input on improving the game, make videos raving how awesome the game is and after they've done their career modes and flogged it to death, then claim that version whatever of the game was better. Twitter is full of them saying which version is better with the majority of them agreeing that F1 2019 is shit. However, it wasn't that long ago that those same YouTubers were shouting from the rooftops how amazing F1 2019 was.

To be honest, I don't trust the majority of F1 you tubers when it comes to their opinion on the games since it seems like they're more interested in what the game can do for their channel than telling us what's really good or bad when compared to the previous versions of the game.

I pre-ordered F1 2020, as usual, in the hope that they finally improved the force feedback, menu system, wheel support, tyre physics etc but I already get the feeling thatit's essentially F1 2019 with a small change to low speed traction. The game has the official licence which means all the proper cars, drivers, tracks etc but after 10 years, I expect more than what we're getting now.

For me, iRacing and Assetto Corsa/Competizione offers a better racing experience but if you're an F1 fan, F1 2020 is the only option if you want the official experience.

Yeah, closed beta signup's were on the codemasters forum, pre-ordering gives 3 days early access though & the 10% discount.

As far as physics go, while still not a simulation, I think Vinodh nailed it with the bit about changes to low speed traction... but to be fair, I feel like that would already go a long way to improving the feel and was one of my major issues with 2019, that and on my T500 the FFB felt slow, lifeless & uninspired. So while I could still put in hot laps, it never felt as though I could push the cars to their absolute limit, as ffb was always too slow to react. In contrast to other games where the T500 is a beast, more than fast enough to catch slides and I find myself turning ffb down. :D

But, finger's crossed 2020 will be better.

Seems like Liberty is interested in getting Codemasters to make a more sim orientated F1 game experience for the hardcore fans. So can look out for that coming up soon

Not allowed to say how I know ;) but I suppose it's close enough to launch to say that for me at least 2020 feel's much, much better than F1 2019. Still not full sim, but much more drivable, which should translate into better on track action, league racing will no doubt be great!

Well worth the pre-order discount I think, if anyone's still on the fence.

It's a lot better than I expected. The handling and the feedback on the steering wheel is a big improvement on F1 2019. I assumed that it would be 2019 with a new mode for your own team but I was wrong. It feels like a completely different game. I'm especially enjoying driving in the rain. For whatever reason, I'm getting a better feel for the car in the wet then in the dry.

Here is a short clip from a stream I did yesterday driving in heavy rain with no driver aids. This was something that I couldn't do in F1 2019. In that game it felt like I was going to crash the whole time. In this game I actually have control of the car (except for the odd crash but that's just me driving like a doos). Really enjoying it.
