Codemasters Announce F1 2013 Release Date

Codemasters have today revealed the release date for this years iteration of their F1 series. F1 2013 will be released on October 4th for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. To celebarate Codemasters have released a video of an in-game lap of the Hungaroring circuit.

This years release is attempting to bring some freshness to the series with the inclusion of a Classics mode, allowing gamers to race some of the iconic F1 cars from across the years.

“F1 2013 will feature a new gameplay mode called F1 Classics giving fans the chance to race classic cars on iconic circuits against legendary drivers for the first time in Codemasters’ award-winning series. Introduced by legendary broadcaster Murray Walker, F1 Classics features a new fictional racing series allowing players to race cars, drivers and circuits from the 1980s. Classic content is also available in a range of other game modes, including split-screen and online multiplayer modes.”

Sound good to me! As much as I enjoy the F1 games released by Codemasters, there’s no denying that last years 2012 entry didn’t exactly provide customers with a lot of reasons to purchase it over the 2011 iteration. Hopefully classics mode will be enough to bring some excitement back.

  1. I’m looking forward to the classic content, but to be honest none of that will matter if they haven’t sorted out some of the fundamental issues with previous games, such as the penalty system and the AI.
