F1 2018 Release Date Scheduled For August 24, Some Details Revealed

Codemasters and Deep Silver have announced F1 2018, the official videogame of the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship, will release worldwide on August 24, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC (DVD and via Steam). The release date lines up on the same weekend as the 2018 Formula 1 Belgian Grand Prix at the iconic Spa-Francorchamps Circuit.

“We were delighted by the reception that the highly-acclaimed F1 2017 game received, and are extremely excited to be able to further build on such a strong starting point with F1 2018,” said Paul Jeal, F1 Franchise Director at Codemasters. “Over the past few years we have engaged heavily with our fan-base to understand what is important to them, and we cannot wait to unveil more details on features we know our fans will love. Career mode has been further expanded to immerse players even deeper into the world of F1 than before, with the return of a highly requested feature back into the franchise. We are also adding more classic cars, again listening to our fans as to which of the historical F1 cars they would most like to virtually drive next. Outside of those headline additions there are many other great enhancements to be revealed before the game launches.”

The 2018 season has started in exhilarating style with victories for Scuderia Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel at both the Australian and Bahrain Grand Prix, and then for Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo in China. Lewis Hamilton then won a thrilling and dramatic race at the Baku City Circuit in Azerbaijan, and most recently Hamilton was again victorious in last weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix. The 2018 season also sees the return of the French Grand Prix for the first time since 2008, at the Circuit Paul Ricard, which last hosted the French Grand Prix in 1990. The German Grand Prix also returns to the Championship after not featuring last year, with the Hockenheimring hosting the race in July. F1 2018 will feature all of the official teams, the drivers and circuits of the 2018 season.

  1. Have to think the return on media interviews is the much requested feature they brought back.
    Also looks like they have finally starting adding names to the commentary so hopefully you will no longer just be “A Red Bull” or what have you.
