Today, Codemasters have officially announced F1 2014, the studio’s latest official F1 game. The F1 game will be available on October 17 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. This sadly means that that the series will forgo the new gen for another year.
F1 2014 will continue to follow the evolution of its real world counterpart as the game will incorporate this seasons numerous and significant rule changes, which include the new aerodynamic regulations and turbocharged units. F1 2014 will also feature the sports two tracks, updated driver line-ups and of course all the differently designed cars.
Apart from the aesthetic changes, Codemasters are introducing a new driver evaluation system that “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.”
Stephen Hood, Creative Director for the F1 series at Codemasters had the following to say about F1 2014:
“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.”
In the announcement post on the Codemasters blog, the company did mention that they would be releasing a new Formula 1 title in 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The 2015 game will launch early in the F1 2015 season and according to Codemasters, the game will receive digital update throughout the 2015 season, “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.”
