F1 2018, the officially licensed game of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship, is – you guessed it – coming out in 2018.
The 2018 Formula One World Championship is back. The season is already underway, with five race weekends already complete. Racers, teams, and fans have already travelled to Australia, Bahrain, China, Azerbaijan, and Spain, and in a couple of months, it’ll be your turn.
F1 2018, the latest in Codemasters’ perennial motor racing series, is also back. Taking the yearly sports franchise approach of incrementally improving on previous years isn’t a bad thing, in this case. We thoroughly enjoyed F1 2017, though the career mode was a bit uncanny valley, but they could do a lot worse than to build and improve on last year’s formula.
It seems like the folks at Codemasters agree.
“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.” – Paul Jeal, F1 franchise director, Codemasters
But what of the F1 2018 release date? That will hit the grid on race 12 of the Formula One season, when the championship proper goes to the historic Spa circuit in Belgium.
You can pick up F1 2018 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 24th, 2018. Pricing is to be confirmed, and we don’t have any media or screenshots yet, just the solitary logo above. Check back for more details as they become available.
