Bahrain Grand Prix – Codemaster’s latest installment of the Formula 1 game, F1 2019, will be released earlier than usual this year, with a release date scheduled for June.
The new computer game for Formula 1, F1 2019 from Codemasters, will be released worldwide on Friday 28th June. This is considerably earlier in the year than usual, usually getting launched around August or September.
The game will be released for Playstation4, XBox One X and Windows (through DVD and Steam).
A new feature for the game appears to be a customisable car, designed in collaboration with F1’s technical team, headed up by Ross Brawn and Pat Symonds. The car, which will be available in Multiplayer, adheres to the 2019 regulations and ‘comes with a range of livery designs offering you a new level of personalisation.’
While there are no solid indications of changes to the game from the F1 2018 iteration, Codemasters say there will be several new features and tweaks that will be announced over the coming months before release.
“We are absolutely delighted to be able to release F1 2019 earlier in the season, so that the game can be played and enjoyed at the same time that the real-world championship picture is starting to form,” said Paul Jeal, F1 Franchise Director at Codemasters.
“Our close relationship with Formula 1 has played a major part in achieving this key objective for the franchise. That in addition to our near two-year development cycle, has allowed us to develop some exciting new features and other firsts for the franchise that we can’t wait to share with our community in the coming months.”
“The exciting collaboration with Ross Brawn and Pat Symonds has created new levels of player personalisation in F1 2019 through the inclusion of the new regulation car,” said Lee Mather, F1 2019 Game Director at Codemasters.
“With the continued growth of the F1 series, it’s great to give players more control and new levels of car and driver customisation and we can’t wait to talk more about this alongside the new multiplayer features in the coming months.”
