Time flies, doesn’t it? It feels like only yesterday that F1 2021 was revealed to the world, by Codemasters and EA Sports. Yet, in just one month’s time, F1 2021 will be rolling out of the garage and ready for you to get behind the wheel on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Since that reveal in April, we’ve been inundated with requests for gameplay and more information – and today, we’re excited to bring you exactly that!
The official F1 2021 features trailer was unveiled, taking you on a whistle-stop tour of so much that the new official Formula One game has to offer, including brand new features and ways to play. Take a look for yourself with our new video above, then keep reading for more details on everything revealed today for F1 2021…
Every Story Has a Beginning
The first major focus of the trailer is on Braking Point, the brand new story experience for F1 2021. Set across three seasons, with five selectable teams, rising from F2 to F1, Braking Point is a thrilling blend of racing and storytelling, with stunning cutscenes and dramatic moments. Navigate the politics, track the hot topics and gossip in the paddock and social media, and outlast rivals (including the returning Devon Butler) in Braking Point, our most immersive mode to date.
New F1 2021 Career Options
From there, we move onto Career mode – a staple of the F1 series that gives you the opportunity to enter the FIA Formula One World Championship, competing against the real-world teams and drivers over multiple seasons. This year, we’re further expanding the ways to play Career, as a new two-player feature is added to let you compete alongside a friend, either co-operatively as a team, or competitively with contract offers and team switches available. Team up or square off – the choice is yours!
Another addition, Real-Season Start, lets you recreate or put your spin on moments from this year’s World Championship, as we add the results and standings from each race to the game and let the player decide when to enter the action. The hotly debated driver ratings for the F1 grid will also be updated in-game after every three races this season, to reflect the form and performance of each driver, bringing your F1 2021 experience even closer to the sport.
My Team Returns
My Team is back this year after its debut in F1 2020 was received so well – your chance to create, manage, and race for your own F1 team, making the big decisions to go from rookie outfit to the top of the podium. Alongside new departmental events that create key moments in your team’s progression, there are the seven iconic F1 drivers, exclusive to digital Deluxe Edition players, to recruit and race alongside. More details on those icons are over here.
F1 2021 – For Everyone
F1 2021 is also the most social and customisable experience of the series, with options and race events to suit every player. Want some fast and fun competitive action? Two-player local split-screen and online quick races are there for you. Looking for more of a challenge? Ranked online play, custom lobbies, weekly global challenges, and a dedicated Esports hub will be ready and waiting.
Whatever your preference, race with style and individuality, with options to customise your driver, livery, helmet, race suit, podium celebration, and even your team radio audio when you win a race! With a streamlined presentation across the game and more options to cater for both casual and expert racers, it’s easier than ever to make F1 2021 the exact experience you’re looking for.
Join the New Generation
What ties this all together is the official Formula 1 content and presentation, with real track-side personalities like David Croft and Will Buxton, and incredible circuits and environments – brought to life even more on Xbox Series X|S, with stunning graphical fidelity.
With Braking Point, new Career options, more ways to play, and a debut on Xbox Series X|S, we are incredibly excited for players across the globe to get their hands on F1 2021 from July 16, or July 13 if you pre-order the digital Deluxe Edition. Don’t just take it from us: We recently gave selected media and creators a first chance to try out F1 2021, and the response has been incredible.
