F1 2015 announced
Racing franchise to make next-gen debut earlier than usual
Codemasters has announced that F1 2015, the official video game of the 2015 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, will release in June 2015.
Arriving much earlier in the FORMULA ONE season than before, this will mark the fist release for the franchise on the new generation of consoles.
F1 2015 is set to take gamers closer to the real-world experience of racing thanks to a brand new version of Codemasters’ proprietary EGO game engine. In addition to new visual fidelity, F1 2015 offers a step forward in the physics-based handling model of the game, which is designed to be inclusive for both seasoned players and those new to the series. The handling model offers enhancements and additions, including engine and transmission, aerodynamics, fuel tank, force feedback, suspension and most notably a brand new tyre physics model.
The game also promises a more immersive experience thanks to an all-new ‘broadcast presentation’ style that recreates the unique race day atmosphere of a GRAND PRIX, complete with podium and grid sequences. Using voice recognition technology available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, players can become immersed in the cockpit, engaging with their race engineer through in-game voice commands.
F1 2015 will be released this summer for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
