F1 2021 Features breakdown
F1 2021 the game is just about a month from release, and Codemasters has put a lot into this year’s edition of the vaunted franchise.
The game looks great this year, and features a variety of ways to play:
- Breaking Point Story Mode promises on- and off-track drama, starring former F2 nemesis from 2019’s game, Devon Butler. The mode now lasts through three seasons, rather than just a brief sojourn through F2, before reaching its conclusion.
- The new option to run through a two-player career mode online is also pretty cool. You can play together on the same team, or choose opposing teams and try to lead your own team to victory over your…friendly?…rival.
- The franchise is now adding driver stats, which will change throughout the season. This could potentially be a big deal. In past games, the car has always mattered far more than the driver, and it could be difficult to see the difference on the track between individual drivers. The addition of ratings is probably due to the EA purchase, but could add a ton to the game.
- Real Season Start will allow gamers to start with current points and standings from the real-life season — which is a nice addition, considering that the game releases in the middle of the season.
- The My Team mode returns, as well, allowing players to create their own F1 team and try to take them to the top.
No matter how you like to play — casual or sim; online or off; story focused or RPG focused — F1 2021 has a mode for you.
