We are prepared to “experience the lifestyle” of a Formula 1 driver, to be honest. Traveling the world, dining in the finest restaurants, mixing with supermodels and celebrities, and relocating to Monaco as a UK tax exile before you get into driving really fast cars, it feels absolutely amazing.
Anyway, we digest. There is also a ‘massive request’ two-player online career mode where gamers can play cooperatively or competitively.
EA / Kodmasters are promising a real-season debut, where players can jump into the F1 season with a real-life stand. So, for example, if you want to drag your favorite driver / constructor up to the leaderboard, you can hijack his weather and improve it.
It is unlikely that EA Sports has anything to do with the production of the sport, but the firm’s ability to get the publishing machine behind the F1 2021 could see an increase in popularity.
The most recent version of the series, F1 2020, was given around 4.5 / 5 stars from reliable reviews, with the conclusion of our own Cobb Monni: “Kodmasters’ F1 series continued to hold mileage, increasing competition , Expanded the F2 series. And adding My Team Mode for the most comprehensive package ever. “
