Today, Codemasters and Electronic Arts announce F1 2021, a next-generation racing experience. F1 2021 releases on July 16 and features teams, drivers, and circuits for the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship. The game will feature a new story mode, expanded career mode, and two-player options. Three new free circuits will also be available free-to-play post-launch: Portimão, Imola, and Jedda.
The new story mode, called Braking Point, allows players to embark on an epic journey and rise through the ranks of Formula 2 for a chance at Formula 1 stardom. It aims to provide an immersive F1 experience, capturing a driver’s lifestyle both on and off the racetrack, along with the dedication required to compete at a top-tier level. F1 2021 also reintroduces Devon Butler, who made his debut in F1 2019.
Career mode is getting some welcome changes, including a two-play mode allowing players to join up with their friends online in co-operative or rivalry sessions. Drivers maintain control over their assists, and players of all levels and compete together.
Other features include driver-manager experience My Team, a two-player split-screen functionality, the option for shorter F1 and F2 seasons, and better esports integration. The game’s visuals will also be getting a major improvement for next-gen consoles Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5.
