F1 2021 hands-on previews and videos have arrived today from a few sites and content creators. We have listed some of them below, as they discuss gameplay, Career Mode (Braking Point), two-player career and more.
- To give you insight into how your car is likely to perform in the big race, Practice Sessions have been given new life. Each session lets you take part in three challenges. Each one is designed to assess how you treat your tyres; what the ideal fuel load and pit stop strategy is; and how speed is managed. By completing these challenges, you’ll gain boosts to your car’s development and resource points to spend how you like. Completing team’s secondary objectives will reduce the cost of development as well. Taking part in the race weekends aren’t just about the final race. Everything you do feeds into your progress as a racer and a member of an organisation. –GodisaGeek
- Of course, you’ll be able to carry out your very own racing journey in the usual Career mode, but again, Codies is adding new features. For 2021, you will be able to play Career with two players. While this is something fans have been able to do before in previous games, this is a much more fleshed out version. Essentially, you can play Career solo, as usual, or you can have a friend play with you, either in co-op or Contracts. The latter sees your buddy racing for another team, and you’ll compete on the track and battle to take on contracts. –PushSquare
- The Real Season Start feature in F1 2021 allows players to swap themselves with any driver on the grid and pick up exactly where the real Formula 1 season has left off. Players will be able to start a career mode from the last (or any previous) Formula 1 Grand Prix with the actual driver standings and teams progress to that point. Another highly touted feature in this year’s game is the career mode known as Braking Point in which players work their way through Formula 2 and into F1. The developers promise a strong narrative with a well-written story for players to experience through intense racing scenarios and off-track situations. –GameRant
