F1 2014 Announced


Codemasters have today announced F1 2014, whilst also announcing they are working on a new F1 title for the new generation of consoles.

Firstly, F1 2014 will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 17th. Following on from that, the new-gen F1 game will arrive next year, which will launch earlier

F1 2014 builds on the success the developers have had in the last five years of developing the officially licensed F1 title. It will incorporate this season’s seismic rule changes – the most significant in the sport’s 60 year history – including new aerodynamic regulations and turbocharged power units. All but two teams have changed their driver line-ups and new circuits have been added to the roster. Players will experience how 2014’s radically different new cars feel to drive as the season’s cars, circuits and teams are authentically represented.

There is also a new driver evaluation system quickly identifies player ability and tunes game settings to an appropriate level, whilst re-graded difficulty settings enable players to compete at incrementally higher levels as they become more experienced. Experienced gamers, who enjoy a more serious simulation of the demands placed upon F1 drivers, can customise their settings to provide a true challenge. Stephen Hood, Creative Director for the F1 series at Codemasters stated:

This is the year it all changes – for the sport and for the game, There’s been a dramatic shift in the sport; the largest shake up in the rules and regulations for a very long time and the new power units provide a very different kind of challenge, for both driver and team. By delivering all of these changes, F1 2014 will make for an exciting and refreshingly different experience. Additionally, with the new driver evaluation system analysing each player’s skill level and suggesting appropriate game settings, plus re-graded difficulty levels including a brand new Very Easy setting, we aim to deliver a thoroughly rewarding F1 experience for players of all abilities, from the novice to the seasoned pro. Our title for the new generation formats will mark a huge step forward for the F1 series. We want to be out there earlier in the season and deliver new season content updates digitally as the 2015 season progresses; it’s very exciting for the series and our players.
