New F1 2020 Update Adds The Black Mercedes Livery
The F1 2020 game has a new update, with one striking addition. It adds the new black Mercedes livery for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team.
Mercedes opted for a livery change ahead of the true start of the season early this month. Instead of the usual silver arrows, the livery and racing suits are changed to black, with green and red accents.
With the F1 2020 game releasing earlier than the season started thanks to the pandemic, Codemasters have to release the game with the originally revealed livery. But with patch 1.06, now the Mercedes W11 in F1 2020 will match its on-track counterpart.
The patch also adds the following changes:
- Mercedes car and driver suits updated to the black livery
- Fixed an issue in unranked multiplayer where a host disconnection resulted in AI having unrealistic lap times
- Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll now wear the correct gloves
- Fixed a progression issue in My Team career which could occur after an Invitational event
- Fixed a progression issue in My Team career which could occur at the end of a season
- The Savant sponsor will now correctly pay out
- Various other stability and bug fixes
Update 1.06 is now live on PC, and coming to PS4 and Xbox One later this week.
