F1 fans will be delighted with the return of both the French and German Grand Prix this season, and F1 2018 will feature both when it is released later this year!
Codemasters and Koch Media announced yesterday (15th May) that F1 2018 will be released across PS4, the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X and Windows PC (DVD and via Steam) worldwide on Friday 24th August 2018,
The release date coincides with the Belgian Grand Prix weekend at Spa and will build upon the success of F1 2017.
“We were delighted by the reception that the highly-acclaimed F1 2017 game received, and are extremely excited to be able to further build on such a strong starting point with F1 2018,” said Paul Jeal, F1 Franchise Director at Codemasters.
“Over the past few years we have engaged heavily with our fan-base to understand what is important to them and we cannot wait to unveil more details on features we know our fans will love. Career mode has been further expanded to immerse players even deeper into the world of F1 than before, with the return of a highly requested feature back into the franchise. We are also adding more classic cars, again listening to our fans as to which of the historical F1 cars they would most like to virtually drive next. Outside of those headline additions there are many other great enhancements to be revealed before the game launches.”
Jeal’s comments on the “highly requested feature” due for return has certainly sparked a debate in our office and we are eager to hear any more news coming from Codemasters about F1 2018 ahead of the release date.
F1 2018 will feature at E3 next month with the chance to get hands-on with the game while it is in development.
