Codemasters and EA have announced the latest installment of their popular Formula 1 World Championship racing game franchise, F1 2021. The new title, which will be the first to be published under the EA SPORTS label following EA’s acquisition of Codemasters just two months ago, will feature an expanded Career mode with two-player option, three new circuits (Portimão, Imola, and Jeddah), and a brand-new story mode called Braking Point in which players are challenged to rise from the ranks of Formula 2 to Formula 1. F1 2021 will be available worldwide on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on July 16.
“Braking Point is an exciting innovation that has been years in the making. We are proud to expand the game experience and allow players to live the highs and lows of life in Formula 1 both on and off the track,” said Lee Mather, Franchise Game Director at Codemasters. “Braking Point transforms the game and puts players centre stage in the greatest racing spectacle on the planet.”
