The game developer Codemasters has announced the release date of its latest iteration of the official 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship game, as well as the platforms where it will be available in.
Sales of the F1 2018 game will be on Friday, August 24, 2018, which will coincide with this year’s Belgian Grand Prix. According to Codemasters, it will be available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox ONE, Xbox One X, and PC (DVD and via Steam).
The game’s creators say that F1 2018 will feature an expanded career mode that will further immerse its players. Red Bull Racing’s official website says that the game will also have female avatars and an even bigger Research & Development system for diversity and greater challenges.
What’s also confirmed is the availability of all 20 drivers and 10 teams, as well as the 21 circuits including the Circuit Paul Ricard in Le Castellet, France and Hockenheimring in Hockenheim, Germany. In addition, there will be more classic cars available for fans to virtually drive.
Apart from that, Codemasters is teasing the return of a highly requested feature. What could it be? Sadly, we’ll have to be a little more patient with regards to that. Codemasters says that it will release more information, the official trailer, and promotional material as the release date approaches.
This game is also confirmed to be the platform where the 2018 Formula 1 e-Sports Pro Series will be held. The series starts with four qualifying events featuring pre-selected circuits and situations. The top 40 drivers in the world will be eligible to be drafted by the F1’s official teams as representative of their e-Sport teams.
