We are only a few days away from the launch of the new Formula 1 video game, F1 2021, with the digital Deluxe Edition to be launched even earlier.
In the middle of a much more normal look Formula 1 season than last, when, when the official F1 2020 video games were released only a race into the season, we are only a few days away from the highly anticipated launch of F1 2021 and everything that comes with this season-based game in 2021.
In EA Sports’ first year as publisher of the game after their acquisition of Codemasters, there are quite a few features that will definitely make your heart and your engine swing, all the while maintaining the typical captivating aspect of what is annually a of the top racing games, if not the biggest racing game, on the market.
There’s a whole new storytelling mode called Brake Point, a 10-year career mode, multiplayer mode and much, much more.
Brake Point allows players to rise from the ranks of Formula 2 with one of five Formula 1 teams from 2021 and compete against recurring antagonist Devon Butler.
There is also an extended two-player career mode that allows racers to go head to head in synchronous online or local play, offering an exciting new way to experience this special state of the game. This mode allows players to team up or compete competing with rival teams in synchronous sessions.
In addition, Real-Season Start allows players to jump in at any time in the calendar that has already happened with updated position, a feature that makes much more sense in 2021 given the fact that there have already been nine races contested this year.
Look at some pictures that were released before the game.
Of course, not everything is new. My Team mode is back, as is the split-screen with two players.
But speaking of my team, there has been one particular improvement that you may notice: seven world champions and legends will be select drivers in this state, including Ayrton Senna, Alain Prost, Michael Schumacher, Nico Rosberg, Jenson Button, David Coulthard and Felipe Massa.
F1 2021 will be launched on Friday 16. July on Xbox Series X | S and PlayStation 5 along with Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC (via Steam). The Digital Deluxe Edition will be available three days earlier on Tuesday, July 13th with additional content.
