jump into the hot seat of your favorite virtual formula 1 team this summer when f1 2021 launches on july 16. the game follows the 2021 fia formula one world championship and adds three new circuits: portimão, imola, and jeddah.
a new story mode makes its debut, too, called braking point. players will start off as a formula 2 driver and compete to earn a spot with the big dogs in formula 1. real rivalries take place, and players will get a taste of the drama on and off the track.
the new trailer shows a glimpse at what the new game looks like, to the surprise of no-one, the look and feel looks polished, but what we're also excited for the pushing and shoving going on in those paddock cut scenes. without any actual gameplay footage, we can only hope it's as entertaining as formula 1: drive to survive on netflix. and part of us hopes the voice acting in this new electronic arts title is somewhat better than previous games.
there's also a bigger and better career mode that will make navigating the 2021 formula one season more fun this year. play with a friend as a team working together, or you can play out your own red bull racing versus mercedes amg petronas conflict. every player will control their own team's assets and can begin at any point of the formula 1 season with real-time driver and constructor standings.
two-player split-screen play is also back, and codemasters and ea sports say loading times have been improved, leaving even more time for wheel-to-wheel racing.
f1 2021 can be preordered on playstation 5, xbox series x and s, playstation 4, xbox one, and pc for an exclusive braking point content pack. the preorder bonus gives you 5000 pitcoins and more exclusive in-game items. a digital f1 2021 deluxe edition includes the braking point content pack as well as access three days early and 18,000 pitcoins.
if you're still waiting to jump on the next-gen console wagon, fear not; f1 2021 supports upgrading from playstation 4 to playstation 5 and xbox one to xbox series x or s for free. no need to buy the game twice.
