The latest iteration of the F1 franchise has been revealed by Electronic Arts and the trailer is intense to say the least.
  • "breaking point" Story mode features heavily
  • Two player championships
  • Real world standings integration with "Real-Season Start"
I'm not afraid to admit that i'm not the biggest F1 games player, but, i'm a sucker for a single player career mode. So I was quite intrigued by the F1 2021 reveal trailer which is if anything cinematic AF! It's fair to say that this looks like it will be the key selling point for the latest title, even if details are a bit thin on the ground at this early stage.

Press Release F1 2021

How far will you go before you reach your 'Braking Point'? It’s time for the next generation with F1® 2021, the official videogame of the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship ™. Racing onto your PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One, or PC via Steam on July 16, F1® 2021 is packed full of brand-new features, which we’ll take a closer look at right here.

What’s new?
Braking Point
Go on an epic journey with 'Braking Point', our brand-new story mode. Rise from the ranks of Formula 2™ to a shot at stardom in the world of Formula 1®. Experience the lifestyle both on and off the track as you take your seat in the pinnacle of motorsport.

That’s not all. After his infamous debut in F1® 2019, Devon Butler is back. We’ll have plenty more to reveal about him and our brand-new story mode, Braking Point in the coming weeks.

Two-Player Career
We’re also excited to reveal a feature you’ve requested for a long time – the ability to play career with your friends, either co-operatively or competitively. As each player will have complete control over the assists, you’ll be able to enjoy the game whether you’re a veteran or a newcomer to the series.

Real-Season Start
F1® 2021’s 'Real-Season Start' feature lets you jump into this season's action, reflecting the live standings, and then you can take over and drive the remaining races. Great for players who want to jump into the season to align with the real-world season.

Next-Generation Experience
For the first time, F1® 2021 is coming to Xbox Series X|S and PS5 with visual uplift and faster loading times, alongside PS4, Xbox One and PC via Steam. And if you’re planning to upgrade, we’re very happy to tell you that F1® 2021 will support Xbox Smart Delivery and PlayStation’s free upgrade if you’re switching to an Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5*.

What’s returning to F1® 2021?
Features you know and love from F1® 2020, such as My Team, two-player split-screen, shorter seasons, accessible options, and F2™ aren’t going anywhere. We’re also expanding and refining many other features, including scalable assist options, driver stats and multiplayer.

Pre-ordering
If you’re excited for F1® 2021, you can pre-order right now. You’ll get the Braking Point Content Pack, a set of exclusive in-game items inspired by the new story experience’s fictional stars, and 5,000 PitCoins.

Our digital Deluxe Edition includes seven soon-to-be-unveiled classic F1® drivers for My Team, three days early access, extra customisation content, 18,000 PitCoins and the Braking Point Content Pack.

We’ll also be adding three new circuits, Portimão, Imola, and Jeddah*, which will be available to all players as free** post-launch content.

I have to say, this year doesn’t interest me anymore. 7 plats on PS3/4 and I’m done. The only thing which would take me back to console now would be a AC/RRE sandbox type thing. I’m back with the sim and done with the ‘Cade. And also it might work to watch this series year on year, but I am so bored to play those tracks again and again (mostly)
 
emmm....
"F1® 2021 is coming to Xbox Series X|S and PS5 with visual uplift and faster loading times, alongside PS4, Xbox One and PC via Steam." smells like classic EA Fifa Style .... :cautious::poop: in my opinion.
 
You guys expecting VR support when Codies are still clearly stuck in the 90's as proven by continuing lack of proper triple screen or laser scanned tracks, let alone actually having full roster of tracks raced in real life. Those are some expensive new liveries!

Wow!!! F1 2021!! With the same engine, same bugs, same confused menús, and just less than a year from 2020 and new liveries...well 3-4, and just for 50€!!! maybe they think we are stupid, most of companies release dlc, cheaper and let users enjoy the game, but well they must be same genius that released Dirt5 and Grid2019
 
It's so sad they don't wanna go more than it seems, they are not read between the línes, despite a trash games like Dirt 5 and Grid 2019 or Pcars 3, it's the same every year trying to sell us a collage from old games, maybe children could be misguided but simracers aren't children and not casual players.
Wreckfest is selling 2nd season pass and their players are happy, why they don't release a 2021 DLC? With Dirt 2.0 they made a great game and for sure i'm still will buy more dlcs, but EA want to make money with selling same things just changing name, so sad make us treatment like we are stupids, it's a long way to learn from EA, i hope will be not toó late
 
What a stupid assed launch trailer. And it looks like it is pitched at teenagers and not simmers. No doubt no mouse support yet again.
Pass
