F1 2021 officially launches 16th July, but that hasn’t stopped EA and Codemasters treating us to its launch trailer today.
The latest entry in Codemasters’ long-running F1 video game series, and the first since the company was acquired by EA, F1 2021 introduces a bucket-load of new features and gameplay improvements. The biggest of which is a new story mode called Braking Point. We played through the first hour of it recently, and you can read our impressions right here.
We’ll have a full review early next week, and F1 fans will certainly want to check it out. We should point out that buying the Digital Deluxe edition of the game also grants three days early access, allowing racing fans to start playing it on the 13th July. It comes with other extras too, of course, including seven iconic F1 drivers for use in My Team, and 18,000 PitCoins.
In other F1 2021-related news, Codemasters and EA recently revealed the complete list of driver ratings for the game. Who will you want on your team? You can check out the driver ratings via the EA website, though be warned, some of them have sparked discussion. It’s important to note that they’re not set in stone, though – driver ratings will change as you play, both via gameplay, and their real-life performances.
