The game was announced on July 15, 2013. Codemasters confirmed that the game will not be released on Playstation 4 and Xbox One (next-generation consoles). It was released in October 2013.
There is an all-new "F1 Classics" mode, a revamped scenario mode, an expanded young driver test, the ability to save an event mid-session, improved graphics, improved AI, the return of Grand Prix mode and full Racenet integration.
Teams and driversEdit
Other drivers include:
- Oliver Turvey (McLaren)
- Nicolas Prost (Lotus)
- Sam Bird (Mercedes)
- Robin Frijns (Sauber)
- Alexander Rossi (Caterham)
These drivers only appear in the Young Driver Test.
F1 Classics modeEdit
The biggest addition, the "F1 Classics" mode, allows players can drive in cars and tracks from the 1980s and 1990s. The heads-up display is altered to the style of the decade.
While the 1980s content will be in F1 2013, the 1990s content will be in F1 2013: Classic Edition. The 1990s content will be available as a download for the standard version.
The 1980s has five cars and ten drivers, while the 1990s has six cars and twelve drivers.
New scenario modeEdit
The scenario mode is revamped, in which players can go from driving as a rookie to a challenger with "bite sized authentic racing challenges". These are not limited to single player, as they can be performed in co-op mode (both split-screen and online).
Changes to the AIEdit
The AI has been improved from F1 2012. They are faster, make mistakes and are much better to race against.
