Today Codemasters announced that it is planning to release two new titles in the popular franchise. October 17th will see F1 2014 be released for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Then in 2015 they take the series over to the newest generation of consoles with F1 2015 being available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
F1 2014 will take the previous five years of experience developing officially licenced Formula One titles. This one will see the introduction of this season’s seismic rule change; including new turbocharged power units and aerodynamic regulations. So gamers will be given the full, authentic 2014 experience.
Also the gamers will be introduced to a new driver evaluation system. This means that game will quickly identify a drivers ability and match them to others with their skills. 2015 will see the F1 franchise come to PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game will be released early in the Formula 1 season so that players will receive updates as the race campaign unfolds.
Steven Hood, Creative Director for the F1 series at Codemasters had this to say:
“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.”
