Codemasters announced today that F1 2013 is available on PC, X360 and PS3, and has released a launch trailer that can be viewed below. As Codies noted, this launch trailer showcases the game’s latest step forward in visuals, which deliver the ultimate immersion in the 2013 season, alongside ground-breaking new classic content. We’re pretty sure that the game will suffer from the same performance issues of both F1 2011 and F1 2012, so stay tuned for our Performance Analysis.
Codemasters claims that F1 2013 players will get more from their game with RaceNet, the company’s free online community hub. RaceNet will power regular community challenges, which will begin this weekend with a Time Trial event in Korea where players will compete to set the best time on online leaderboards around the circuit in dry conditions in a Williams car. Each entrant will earn 1000XP which can go towards unlocking rewards, including in-game helmets.
RaceNet also enables players to set up Custom RaceNet events. Players can set their own Time Trial scenarios, choosing circuit, weather conditions, car and duration of the event, and challenge their RaceNet friends to compete to set their best time on leaderboards. RaceNet also includes visual stats and game progress updates and every F1 2013 player with a RaceNet account will receive the 1976 Ferrari 312 T2, as starring in the film Rush.
