    F1 2018 Release Date.jpg
    Codemasters confirm late August release date for F1 2018 - plus some new fan requested content..


    With the new Formula One season now well into the swing of things, Codemasters have decided the time feels right to give a first official announcement around the next official Formula One game from the British studio, confirming F1 2018 will be released worldwide on Xbox, PlayStation 4 and PC this August 24th.

    Furthermore, Codemasters inform us that they have been listening to fans more than ever before for this upcoming new game, building on the very solid title that was F1 2017 with what has been described as a "further enhanced" career mode following the welcome return to this feature in F1 2017, plus yet more classic content scheduled to appear in the new title. Which cars are expected to be included has yet to be revealed, however Codemasters have said they are listening to the fans, and have acted accordingly with the design decisions taken for the new title:

    "Over the past few years we have engaged heavily with our fan-base to understand what is important to them, and we cannot wait to unveil more details on features we know our fans will love. Career mode has been further expanded to immerse players even deeper into the world of F1 than before, with the return of a highly requested feature back into the franchise. We are also adding more classic cars, again listening to our fans as to which of the historical F1 cars they would most like to virtually drive next. Outside of those headline additions there are many other great enhancements to be revealed before the game launches.”

    Get that hype train rolling, head over to the F1 2018 sub forum HERE.

    Formula One 2018 is scheduled to release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC August 24th 2018.

    Looking forward to this one. Codies have been working hard at the series in recent years and things are moving in the right direction. Always a difficult path to tread when trying to balance simulation aspects with mass appeal, but things seem to be going in a good direction.

    Saying that, would still love to see a 100% simulation title one day. One can dream... :)

    I'd like to get back into that series and will if it has VR. Otherwise, and unfortunately, it's a No Buy.

    Add an option to make the halo transparent, otherwise it won't be playable

    Not in VR!

    One of the reasons I couldn't wait for the RSS Formula Hybrid mod was to drive with the halo, to see what all the fuss was about. 5 seconds after I started driving the first time I forgot it was even there. I'm sure they will have a transparent option though.

    Agree.
    I find it a bit hard to immerse myself into different era cars in historic category.
    How realistic is to race F1 car from early '80s with one from late '00s ??
    Can't we just have ONE F1 season with some tracks (if not all) from that season ?
    Too hard ?
    Maybe it is cause they would have to sign many more copyrights for all the rest teams not only McL, Ferrari, Williams and Renault you know... :unsure:
    However... looking forward to this title, F1 2017 is (almost:D) a blast to me. :geek:

    Considering how bad the classic cars are in F1 2017, I have no interest in having even more of them, if anything it will just take space on my hard drive.

    For me F1 2017 is enough of a sim in terms of physics. I play it more than AC.

    With that said, I hope it will be moddable :)

    I'm not trying to start anything, I'm genuinely doing some "thinking out loud" - how do you reconcile that all the statistics and game devs seem to be saying VR is a tiny fraction of the gaming public...but on the other hand, the RD F1 2018 announcement thread is like 3/4's "no VR no purchase"...it doesn't add up to me.

    Either the game devs are looking at bad statistics or RD has an unusual number of VR owners (i.e. we're not a very representative slice of the overall gaming public).

    For the record, I have VR and, all other things being equal, sure I'd like to see F1 2018 support it. But it's miles off from being a "make or break" feature for me - I still do the vast majority of my gaming (sims and otherwise) not in VR.

    For me VR is make or break in all games. If theres no VR support i simply wont play the game.
    I cant even understand how any one can play anything else then VR, IF you have gotten used to it.
