F1 2021 Game: Release date, new features, Braking Point, My Team & more
It’s a new era for Codemasters, but will their new owners impact the next F1 game?
The F1 2021 season is in full swing, with a titanic battle for the title at long last.
Codemasters may be part of the EA family now, but they are still looking to deliver a truly awesome experience for Formula 1 fans in the shape of F1 2021.
Let’s take a look at all of the revealed features now, as well as when we can get playing the game ourselves.
Latest News – F1 2021 ANNOUNCED!
Days before the Imola Grand Prix, Codemasters has finally revealed all concerning F1 2021.
The game has launched alongside #F12021game, boasting a plethora of awesome new features, as well as an official release date of July 16.
F1 2021 release date
We now have an officialy release date following the recent announcement from Codemasters.
We now know that the game has a final release date of 16 July, 2021.
Codemasters has offered high-end editions of the F1 with early access in recent years, and that continues for F1 2021.
The digital Deluxe Edition of the game comes with 18,000 Pitcoins, as well as 3 days early access and other awesome bonuses!
You can pre-order F1 2021 NOW!
We finally have a trailer to take us through the new game, and it looks incredible.
With the next-gen improvements, and an incredibly immersive career mode to boot, we can’t wait to play the game ourselves.
This brand-new story mode looks set to be a hit for players. Promising a journey from Formula 2 up to the pinnacle, if you are fast enough, Braking Point sees Devon Butler return and introduces some new characters.
Little has been revealed, but since it took centre stage of the announcement trailer it is likely that Codemasters has put a lot of time and effort into crafting this mode.
This amazing game mode landed in F1 2020 with a splash and for most it kicked Career Mode into touch.
The second year of My Team should see some innovations in the mode, and indeed it seems it will, as the mode has been confirmed to return for F1 2021.
An improved livery creator would be nice. The opportunity to move, resize, and colourise logos at will, along with more freedom in paint jobs would be nice.
The Driver Market and facility-building process is likely to get refined and tweaked too.
The usual go-to for single player came under attack last year from My Team, with everyone trying out the new owner mode over the old career mode. Thankfully, F1 2021 has held on to the mode.
In fact, the mode is even seeing some exciting additions, with co-op career mode entering the fray.
This offers players the chance to compete with or against another local player in an awesome season-long battle.
It was totally understandable that Codemasters were unable to get Mugello, Portimao, Imola, Nurburgring, Istanbul Park, and Bahrain Outer into F1 2020.
However, it is now confirmed that Portimao, Imola and Jeddah will be coming to F1 2021 as free post-launch content, which is incredible news for players!
The chaos of the season saw a lot of surprises and it takes an age to create a quality track.
We now know which drivers will be in F1 2021 will be in the game from launch.
F2 champion Mick Schumacher joins the grid along with Yuki Tsunoda and Nikita Mazepin, while Fernando Alonso makes his return after two years away from the sport.
There are also the Driver Ratings to consider. Added to the game in 2020, these give each driver an overall that directly impacts their performance on track.
F1 2021 is coming to next-gen, boasting massively improved loading times, improved visuals and more on the PS5 and Xbox Series X!
Other games such as DIRT 5 by Codemasters have launched for both next-gen and last-gen, so we know that the team will have done an awesome job.
It was Senna vs Prost in F1 2019, and Michael Schumacher in F1 2020. What will it be for F1 2021?
We now know that the digital Deluxe Edition of the game will come with 7 soon-to-be unveiled classic F1 drivers.
Where Codies go here is anyone’s guess. We’d love to see Nigel Mansell get the retrospective treatment, maybe with the addition of that hellish 1984 Dallas GP added to the game!
