Officially licensed F1 2015 game is go go go!
Codemasters have always been very good at racing games, and DiRT Rally is currently going down a storm on Steam Early Access, with new cars and courses being added all the time.
Today sees the launch of another Codemasters racing title – F1 2015 – the only officially licensed 2015 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™ game. Sure, you’ll get your hands on F1 cars (and even Formula E) in other titles like Project CARS and Forza Motorsport 6, but F1 2015 is the only place you’ll get to race all the cars and tracks from the Formula 1 World Championship.
Which is nice.
Running in Codemasters’ proprietary EGO engine, F1 2015 game promises “A truly immersive experience thanks to an all-new ‘broadcast presentation’ style that recreates the unique race day atmosphere of a GRAND PRIX™, complete with introductory grid sequences, new motion-captured pit stops by a real world pit crew, and the iconic podium celebrations.”
And we think you’ll agree from the trailer, it does look pretty bloody sumptuous, and sumptuously bloody pretty:
Doesn’t that look pretty? And just like the real thing, you get to shout at your pit crew over the sound of the engine, too.
Using voice recognition technology available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, players can become immersed in the cockpit, engaging with their race engineer through in-game voice commands with Kinect for Xbox One and the PlayStation®Camera or compatible headsets and microphones for PlayStation 4. Players compete as their favourite FORMULA ONE star in the all-new Championship Season and push themselves to the limit in the challenging Pro Season mode. The game also features fully playable 2014 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™ bonus content.
Champagne is optional when playing F1 2015, but highly recommended.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
