Car goes zoom, gotta go fast.
Codemasters have released their newest Hot Lap video for F1 2014 which showcases the purpose built Sochi track and aside from another very slight hiccup, this time at the 00:27 mark (Sounds like someone forgot to shift gear for a second!) it’s more or less what you would expect to see from a hot lap. Tight cornering and plenty of exhibition shots of winding turns.
The Sochi Autodrom is one of the four new tracks in the game that are out to challenge players to test their mettle and driving prowess. Two of the other tracks are Austria’s Spielberg circuit and the German Hockenheimring.
You can check out the other hot lap here.
Now this may be a petty niggling complaint, but if you pay attention at the 00:34 mark, the crowd raise their hands in one synchronous movement. I may not be an exceptional game dev, hell I can only make basic platformers, but even I know it’s not hard to change the delay before animations are executed. I’m just saying, Codemasters c’mon, step up your game in the animation department. I thought F1 2014 was a realistic simulation.
