As the battle intensifies in the 2019 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, players can now create their own rivalries with the launch of F1 2019. Releasing two months earlier than previous iterations, players who purchased the F1 2019 Legends Edition, can now enjoy three days early access on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC (DVD and via Steam).
“We are absolutely delighted with the inclusion of F2, Senna and Prost, and Career Mode Driver Transfers, as major, new additions to the F1 Franchise, as well as integrating league racing and F1 Esports for fans who want to race competitively,” said Paul Jeal, F1 Franchise Director at Codemasters. “Driver Transfers, in particular, are something that we know our players have craved for several years, and it’s fantastic to now have that functionality integrated into our 10-year Career mode and build upon the seasonal rule changes we introduced in F1 2018 to create unique player storylines from season to season.”
“The extra development time has enabled the team to both improve and add several new features,” said Lee Mather, F1 2019 Game Director at Codemasters. “The addition of F2, complete with their rules and unique race weekends will give racing fans a new experience and we are particularly proud of the visual uplift to key tracks including Monaco and Bahrain, complete with all-new night-lighting effects. The early release date will enable our fans to develop their own rivalries two months earlier than previous seasons and we can’t wait for them to get their hands on the final game.”
