F1 2015 News Post


A new F1 2015 patch has just arrived for PC users, check out the details below. For those of you on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a patch is coming soon.

Game
  • Added a session list screen which is available via the Multiplayer menu. This screen will allow players to search for all public sessions and join the one they want to. Custom and Hopper sessions will be visible on this list.
  • Multiplayer fixes and improvements:
    • Added additional information to lobbies so players can see how much progress has been made in the current session.
    • Parc ferme rules are no longer incorrectly applied so players will not get their fuel locked to 100kg in qualifying or not be able to change their tyres at the start of a race if they qualified outside the top ten.
    • Fixed an issue that would cause a players car to always be ghosted during timed qualifying sessions.
    • Fixed framerate and lag spikes causing incorrect collisions.
    • Fixed a bug that meant connections with limited upload bandwidth would appear laggy while on track and eventually disconnect.
    • Disallowing Brake Assist will no longer also block ABS.
    • Cars will no longer ghost when driving too slowly on track.
    • Fixed a bug which made the screen pulse black when spectating specific cars in specific circumstances.
    • Minor hopper improvements and changes
    • Removed the AI from all hoppers.
    • Removed the assist restrictions from the Hardcore hopper.
    • Made the countdown timer longer and prevented it from starting for a short time if there are not many players in the session to try to allow more people to join.
    • Changed the grid order to random from realistic. So now the players Mercedes cars will not always start on the front row.
    • Updated the Feature Race to Brazil.
  • Removed the incorrect second DRS detection zone from the Mexico mini map. This was not present in the actual track data.
  • Corrected the number of laps for the Mexican Grand Prix.
  • The player is now correctly disqualified for not using both compounds in a dry weather race.
  • Improvements to AI behaviour in Qualifying:
    • AI will no longer all leave the garage at the same time.
    • AI will no longer use Prime tyres in Q2.
    • AI will always do two runs in Short Qualifying and Q3.
  • Fixed the flashing rear tyre issue present on some PC setups.
  • Made the D-Pad menu more responsive to use.
  • Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause OSD messages to remain on screen or to never display. This was mostly reported online but can be seen offline too.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause new tyres to be too cold when they’re put on at a pit stop.
  • Fixed a problem that could cause unrealistic lap times in practice and qualifying.
Sports Updates – Part 1
  • Adjusted the relative performance of the teams and drivers based on the season’s results so far.
  • Updated the tyres for Russia to Super Soft and Soft.
High End PC Enhancements
  • New CPU-driven particle effects to improve visual quality on systems with high-end CPUs. Select “high” or “ultra” particle effects from the options menu.
  • Increased audio voice counts for systems with high-end CPUs. Select the “high” audio quality setting from the option menu.
  • Improved CPU performance for users with 6 and 8+ cores.
  • Improved CPU performance for Intel CPUs with Hyper-Threading Technology.
  • Optimised performance for Intel integrated graphics chips.

I have to admit that I am a noob when it comes to F1 racing, but has their ever been a career mode in the game? What about a crate a drive/team? These might be in the game but it seems to be a single season mode? I want to pick this up but it looks like a $19.99 game. Anyone have any thoughts?

In 2014 you can mada a Career with your one Driver. In 2015 you can only Play a Season with a real existing Driver. First i was afraid about that, but the game and the Seasonmode is great.

I Play the game 2-3 times every week since July more than FIFA,PES,NBA or Madden...I like it more than Forza or Project Cars. But thats my opinion.

Thanks for the input. I think I might look it up and see if I can get a deal.

I saw it somewhere for 39.99, and I may end up picking it up for that price. I'll wait until Black Friday though just to make sure there aren't any better deals. I originally wanted to wait for F1 2016 since the Haas F1 team will be debuting next season, but I've heard the gameplay in this one is really strong. So I may end up biting on this one and preparing myself for next year's in the process.

Yeah, as mentioned above, there is no career mode in the games first appearance on next gen. Just season mode only.

As for the game itself, it looks amazing, sounds amazing, drives pretty damn awesome. If you enjoy fast race cars, on twisty tracks, you'll have lots of fun racing the game. Like any other racing game, you've got to really learn to feather your triggers for braking and accelerating if you're going to drive with assists off.

Personally, I enjoy playing this, over playing F6 and using the Formula 1 cars.

The cars, the tracks, everything about the game is very detailed, and impressive to play. It does lack game modes though, that's it's biggest downfall IMO. Driving is impressive, as your tires loose grip, you'll feel the car getting tougher to handle. Get out of the racing line into the dirt/rubber, you'll feel the car loose grip. The game is always making you adapt. Racing in the rain is a challenge both because of lack of grip, and because the visuals are really well done. Codemasters nails the racing part really well IMO.


FWIW, I'm not a huge F1 fan either, but I love this game.

Great feedback. Think I am going to grab this next week.

I will add that they are supposedly trying to get another PS4 patch released by the end of next week which is going to tweak driver performance among other things. There is a list over on the CM forums. I will also add, the Xbox1 users really have gotten screwed on the patches for whatever reason.

Being shipped to me. Should have stated that it was the physical game. Dowloadable game was $40

Just got it today, but I really think I will dig it. Mostly I just need to get the feeling of turning the car around the track. Already made the adjustment from left thumbsruck to dpad for driving. I ran really well in practice, but I stink with other drivers on the track.

You're going to have a hard time driving with the D pad IMO. You need the full range of the stick IMO for the long sweeping turns, and especially for countering over and understeer.

Ultimately, I guess whatever works for you is good. Enjoy! It's a good game, not so deep, but good.

The problem I am having with the thumbstick is that it is too sensitive. I did not looking for sensitivity settings, so that might help if they exist.

Switched back to the thumbstick and I am,getting used to it. I feel that I overcorrect a lot with it at this point. One question. Are the cars/drivers different? I started to use a Manor car in the season mode because they suck IRL. Would I see faster laps with Hamilton? I wanted to start off in the back of the pack initially to try to get a better feel for the game.

I fired up my PS4 yesterday 12/7 and the update was there. I really enjoy this game. I just do single races at 50% I'm on medium difficulty I usually finish somewhere in the top 10, I've won a couple. It depends on the Team/Driver I'm using , how good I do in the race. I like how the dude gives me important info through the speaker on my controller.

Yes, the car's and teams are all different. The lower tier teams have less power, and less downforce/grip. You'll notice the driving difference, especially with a lot of the assists off.
