    Ever keen to spread the F1 gaming love, a new title is set to release in a couple of days... the 2018 edition of F1 Mobile Racing comes to iOS this October 18th.

    Once again releasing as a 'free to play' game for iOS mobile devices, and much like its more established brother F1 2018 from Codemasters, F1 Mobile Racing will be the official videogame representation of the 2018 Formula One season on mobile devices.

    Containing the cars, drivers and tracks of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship, F1 Mobile Racing will also have something of a unique differentiator from its PC and console relations - the new title will contain some nice customisation options not present in the full version of the game, with players able to enjoy a nice range of customisation options within the title.

    F1® Mobile Racing challenges players to compete against the world in fast-paced, real-time races. Win these 1v1 events to rise through the Leagues and unlock upgrades for one of the official cars from the F1® grid, or your very own customisable car. Regularly updated challenges, single-player options, endless customisation possibilities and much more add up to make F1® Mobile Racing a deep and engrossing handheld racing game.

    Having now deemed to have successfully passed the limited release soft launch phase of development, F1 Mobile Racing will be made available worldwide this Thursday 18th October, and will be available to download and play as a 'free to play' game.

    Although initially available on iOS devices, the Android platform is expected to be accommodated in the near future, with development of the game already well underway and expected to become publicly available in the very near future.

    Looking forward to it but hating the "free to play" model. I would have paid for this and enjoyed F1 2016 quite a lot

    Was excited at first until I saw it was only on iPhone :thumbsdown:. I hope the Android version is out soon to give me my F1 fix while away from home.

    They chose to waste resources and effort on a mobile version rather than adding VR to the actual PC game??.
    Weak!

    there may just be a few more mobile phone users who might be tempted to buy the real game after having played the mobile version, than vr users. just my five cents. "free to play" sounds like one big advert campaign for the "real" game.

    Free to play... but you'll have to keep pumping money in to continue in the championship.

    They should have called it "F1 Mobile: the Lance Stroll Simulator"!!! HA!

    Am I seeing this right, in order to buy 1 2018 car, you need to spend around the same as for 1 ETS2 DLC. :confused:

    Anyone play this yet? Reviews? And where does the "you have to pay for this part if you want to continue at a reasonable pace" come in?

    This is how they get your money. "Free" to play, pay to have a good car.

    Graphics are better than PS4/XO version.
