Codemasters has announced F1 2014, the latest iteration of its annual Formula One racing game, which will be released on October 16th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
“There’s been a dramatic shift in the sport; the largest shake up in the rules and regulations for a very long time and the new power units provide a very different kind of challenge, for both driver and team," explained Stephen Hood, Creative Director for the F1 series at Codemasters.
"By delivering all of these changes, F1 2014 will make for an exciting and refreshingly different experience. Additionally, with the new driver evaluation system analysing each player’s skill level and suggesting appropriate game settings, plus re-graded difficulty levels including a brand new 'very easy' setting, we aim to deliver a thoroughly rewarding F1 experience for players of all abilities, from the novice to the seasoned pro.”
Additionally, the studio revealed that they are working on another F1 game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, which will release next year. The new game will release earlier in the Formula One season, with digital updates following the progress of the 2015 FIA Formula One World Championship.
“Our title for the new generation formats will mark a huge step forward for the F1 series. We want to be out there earlier in the season and deliver new season content updates digitally as the 2015 season progresses; it’s very exciting for the series and our players," said Hood.
