The racing game will see retro cars from the likes of Williams, Lotus and Ferrari set in a time period of the 1980s and 1990s. This includes the famous drivers and tracks that formed part of the Formula 1 World Championship.
Legendary television commentator Murray Walker will make an appearance alongside the cars that made Nigel Mansell, Mario Andretti, Gerhard Berger, David Coulthard and Eddie Irvine winners on the racing stage.
The player will also get to drive the famous circuits such as Brands Hatch, Imola and Jerez. This makes a change over the modern-spec tracks featuring large run-offs and chicanes.
Check out the teaser trailer. It all sounds so good to see these amazing cars in a racing game.
As for the main game featuring the 2013 drivers, cars and circuits, it seems a graphical update has been applied. The set-up, menu system and overall feel looks identical to the previous title but let’s hope Codemasters has issued out the bugs with this latest F1-branded game.
