Codemasters already announced the next iteration of their popular game series based on the massively competitive and successful Formula 1 racing championship, F1 2019. And now, the developer has dropped the first true gameplay trailer for the title, showing off a bit of the muscle the racing game can flex, as well as giving gamers a peek under the hood.
F1 2019 will feature a bevy of new and returning features sure to delight any racing fan. In addition to improved simulation aspects, F1 this year is getting an expanded list of cars and locales to race in. Part of this list has already been revealed by Codemasters and includes classics like the 1998 McLaren MP4-13 and the 1978 Lotus 79. These join dozens of other cars across decades of racing, offering a wide array of experiences and nostalgia to players. Check out the accompanying Codemasters blog for more details.
The developer further notes that F1 2019 will also include the 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship series as a free update sometime after launch. This is being done to expand the gameplay modes and replayability, which is a nice touch. Of course that’s not all that the title has to offer. Now about that simulation we talked about.
Another of the big new draws for this year include a completely revamped focus of the simulation and design aspects of the game. F1 2019 marks the first time that Codemasters will be working directly with F1 to create a system of drivable cars that can be tweaked and customized in coordination with real-world rule changes, and this is just the beginning. The collaboration extends to the drivable aspects of the car, with an aim at making the simulation feel just that much more real. Players will be able to take their cars to another level with an improved level of tweaking and performance optimization in F1 2019.
F1 2019 will be available on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on June 28. Check out the gameplay trailer for the title down below.
