    F1 2019 Header.jpg Check out these interesting comparison shots between F1 2018 and the upcoming 2019 version of the game.

    Having already confirmed the new game is set for a June release date, and that the title will benefit from improved graphics throughout the game, Codemasters have taken the decision to put their money where their mouth is with some interesting back to back comparison pictures of the new game compared to F1 2018 - using this weekends location for the real series, Monaco, as the backdrop for the new images.

    "After the big visual improvements across the board in F1® 2018, this year the art team has focussed on a number of circuits, including Monaco which is the flagship event in the F1® calendar" said Stuart Campbell, Art Director for F1 2019 at Codemasters

    "We have increased the building fidelity with higher resolution geometry and a lot of the previously textured elements now have a full geometry pass, which is perfectly demonstrated in turn one heading up to the casino. We’ve increased object placement and crowd density which provides more interest and realism and brings greater depth so the player gets a better sense of the atmosphere during the race weekend.

    From a surface perspective, new scan-based tarmac adds to the realism by giving better light response on the track surface. We are incredibly proud of the work the team has put in and we know our players will notice and appreciate the difference when they play F1® 2019 in a month’s time.
    "​

    So what differences can we see from the upcoming game? Check them out for yourself below..

    The lighting and shaders are a huge step up, but the foggyness is a bit annoying. Could use a lot more contrast in some areas, thank glob for ReShade.

    EDIT: Nice upgrades in the environment too.

    The buildings are much more detailed, also look at the tires for example. Huge shader upgrade and something many racing games lack.

    I hate how they modified pretty much every building in the background but didn't even touched a single kerbs where it's those who need a complete modification (like on every track)

    It's good to see that even though the yachts in the harbor have been moored there for a whole year and the people on board are standing in the exact same spots, at least they've changed clothes in the meantime :p

    Someone who spots a funny little detail when presented with a literal side-by-side comparison and decides to make a lighthearted joke about it.
