EA and Codemasters released today a new trailer for F1 2021 that highlights its main features. Offering players a new narrative-driven feature, Braking Point, F1 2021 will alos come with new dynamic options.
For My Team competitors, the stats of real-world F1 drivers update throughout the season to reflect the action on the track. On the other hand, Real-Season Start allows players to jump in at any point in the calendar that has already occurred with up-to-date standings.
Braking Point allows players to rise from the ranks of F2 to begin their F1 journey with one of five 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship teams. Featuring a combination of on and off-track moments, through a mix of racing action and dramatic cutscenes, friendships and rivalries form over three challenging seasons. Players will compete against the current Formula 1 driver line-up and make a name for themselves against a new and returning cast, including F1 2019 antagonist, Devon Butler.
Showcasing the vast array of options and improved in-game presentation, drivers can now connect in more ways. The two-player Career feature offers an exciting new way to enjoy this mode. The Two-player Career allows players to partner with a single constructor or race head to head with rival teams in synchronous sessions. For more casual racing, the two-player split-screen feature returns, allowing for competitive couch play. On the next-generation consoles, F1 2021 boasts a visual uplift, improved car body and tire damage, and faster loading times.
Lee Mather, Franchise Game Director at Codemasters, said:
“F1 2021 is a tour de force offering something for every type of racing fan. The Features trailer gives an insight into all the exciting innovations that await our players. Whether they want to experience their F1 story in Braking Point or compete with and against friends, F1 2021 is lights-out, the ultimate next-generation racing experience.”
