Tour De France 2020 Reveals New Time-Trial Mode

Game company NACON and game developer Cyanide recently revealed the new Time-Trial mode for video game Tour de France 2020.

Tour de France 2020 gets new mode

The new mode has been completely redesigned after many players requested for changes. It will now have an actual time-trial stage of the real Tour de France.

Check out the time-trial details below:

Achieving a good time in a time-trial stage requires excellent stamina management. Cyanide took this into account and included it in Tour de France 2020 with the ability to adopt a time-trial position: with your forearms resting on the bar extensions, you reduce air resistance and gain speed without increasing effort, at the expense of control of the bike. Watch out for tight turns, pick up speed by switching back to a classic stance and gain a few hundredths of a second to take first place!

With this time-trial position, you can also activate effort control. Adjust it correctly without overestimating your pace; otherwise you could end up exhausted too early.
In addition to the time-trial position, Tour de France 2020 lets you take an aerodynamic stance. Mostly useful while going down slopes, you’ll be able to rest a little and restore your stamina.

Multiple improvements and new features have been added to Tour de France 2020, including:

  • Liège-Bastogne-Liège (“The Old Lady”), a 266km race of steep climbs
  • A redesigned interface that provides better anticipation of the course and position of competitors
  • A deeper time-trial where posture and sprint management are crucial for success
  • A more realistic AI that grabs any attack opportunity

The game will launch this coming June 4. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
