Codemasters dropped a bomb-shell when it announced that F1 2013 was in development for the current generation of consoles. It’s now recently released a trailer and new screenshots for the game, including some new information on what we can expect in terms of features.
Perhaps the biggest change is the F1 Classics mode, which allows you to relive classic races from different eras, playing as different drivers and their respective cars. Such races will include the Williams FW07B, FW14B (with Nigel Mansell’s championship win detailed), FW18, Ferrari F399, Lotus 100T and other races from the 80s and 90s,. The mode will also feature Murray Walker providing commentary to further enhance the authenticity of the experience. What’s more, you’ll be able to access all of the Classics content in different game modes, including online multiplayer.
Being the official game of the 2013 Formula One season, you can also expect all the cars and drivers from this year, including Lewis Hamilton in his Mercedes and – for the first time – Sergio Perez in the McLaren-Mercedes. There will be plenty of avenue of modifying and upgrading your car while building a steady career.
F1 2013 releases for Xbox 360, PC and PS3 in Europe on October 4th and on October 8th in North America.
