    F1 2015 The Game Released.jpg

    Just a little while ago Steam unlocked F1 2015 and the annual Formula 1 game is now released in Europe for Windows PC players.

    North American's have to be a little more patient and wait for 11 more days until the game releases on the 21st of July 2015 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam for PC. (Update: Seems that Americans are getting lucky with a Steam release today as well.)

    The central game mode this year is the all-new Championship Season, which according to the developers promises to deliver the most immersive F1 experience yet, thanks to an all-new ‘broadcast presentation’ style that recreates the unique race day atmosphere of a Grand Prix.

    The upcoming weekend will be used by thousands of race fans to enjoy the first moments in the game and below you find some handy links and tips to enhance your experience!

    Just had a wee play before bed and I am very encouraged thus far. FFB feels pretty good, not game stock car extreme quality but still pretty blooming decent.

    I'm using a fanatec v2 on PC so looking forward to getting home from work tonight and playing around with the settings.

    graphics seem a little blurry and not that sharp but oddly it adds to the atmosphere a little

    I like how in time trial mode you can choose to use your rivals setup, that's a stroke of genius for those of us who love driving but hate setup tinkering.

    I'll stick my neck out and say that I think I'm going to love it

    Thanks Bram and staff for the amazing threads and setup stuff. Wonderful. Just an FYI. I'm in North America and the game is unlocked and playable for me
  5. can't wait to hear what people will say about it, I did like the 2010,11 and 12, but didn't buy 13 and 14 since it was same old same old, 15 looks like it promises more stuff, plus it was said it will be more realistic which would be great addition,

    will probably wait to get this one in some sale, but most likely will be getting it

    I think the 21st is just for Consoles and Disc Versions of F1 cause I'm playing as well.
  10. This game is really bad bugged and not optimized even for triple screens I am running 5760x1080 on ultra everything looks like 480p and just lags the fps :(
  11. Same thing happen to me on the preview build. waiting for an update!

  12. Shocking how its untested lol , you would imagine that they test on triple screens , its totally unplayable on my pc .
  13. Thats the only reason i posted a thread about whats missing, i felt like the game is a big step up from the previous F1 games BUT no to little step up to what people want.

    Also a quick question, on PS4 preview build had alot of frame drops (when there is to much going on around you) and on final build the game runes smoother than before but still frame drops here and there, whats about on PC mate?

    7fps for more on certain events, and for some people on stem as well, really sad that I can't play it :( When it runs normally I get 60fps, so not a problem with my pc

    Nice, that's where I normally get mine from. I bought last years and it was poor handling for my TX.
