We’re just 10 days away from the official release of Codemasters’ latest installment in their F1 gaming franchise, namely F1 2018. The best part though is that this year’s game, coming August 24, looks like a tremendous upgrade over last year’s.
After seeing several work-in-progress videos of F1 2018, we got our first glimpse of how realistic and immersive it will be, during that initial gameplay trailer released a couple of weeks ago.
As you can see, being a virtual Formula One driver has never looked so satisfying, as you can now influence your team in a lot more ways than by simply being a good driver.
“This is the most complete F1 experience that Codemasters has ever created,” stated game director Lee Mather. “The Career mode is the central point of the game and has been greatly expanded with the inclusion of pressurized press interviews that will directly affect your path through the sport. There is also far more flexibility for the player, including the ability to select your own rival and negotiate team moves during the season.”
It will be interesting to see how players over a multitude of platforms respond to F1 2018, since not everybody owns a wheel and pedal set. In fact, most gamers still rely on either a keyboard or an Xbox/PS4 controller.
Regardless, we’re extremely excited to get our hands on the game and spend a large amount of hours trying to conquer the grid.
