Today Codemasters has announced F1 2014, however this is not the most interesting news, that honour belongs to that fact that the game will not launch on the Xbox One or PS4. F1 2014 will launch on October 17th 2014 but only for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
F1 2014 will feature all the changes that can be seen in the current F1 season such as the new engines, rules and tracks as well as new difficulty options and advanced gameplay settings. You can see the first gameplay trailer for F1 2014 at the bottom of the page.
In 2015 Codemasters will launch a new F1 game for the Xbox One PS4 and PC, this new title will arrive earlier in the F1 calendar and will receive updates based around what happens during the season.
Stephen Hood, Creative Director for the F1 series at Codemasters had this to say about the F1 series of games.
“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.”
