The second I fired up this year’s newest version of F1, the difference in the control system and the weight of the race car was dramatic. The difference in how the car felt and the “heaviness” of the car that came through the analog control system versus F1 2020 was pronounced. Not only could I feel the weight differential permeating the control system, but it was also extremely noticeable when controlling the car through multiple styles of turns and corners. The impact that this new inclusion creates while racing on the track is amplified in a way that will force veterans of the series to readjust and relearn how to control the race car.
F1 2021 releases on July 16 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Players who pre-order the Standard Edition will receive the Braking Point Content Pack, a set of exclusive in-game items inspired by the fictional stars of the new story experience, and 5,000 PitCoins.
The Digital Deluxe Edition releases three days early on July 13. Other benefits include the seven iconic F1 drivers for use in My Team, complete with customization content, 18,000 PitCoins and the Braking Point Content Pack.
F1 2021 supports Xbox Smart Delivery and PlayStation’s free upgrade when players switch to an Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5.
