New F1 racing game

F1® 2021 is the official video game of the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship. Dubbed as the next-generation racing experience, this game comes packed with content, a brand-new story mode, and an expanded career mode. It even comes with drivers and circuits for this year's F1 championship. Additionally, this version allows you to play with or against a friend.

Some of the well-loved features of the previous F1 title will also be returning, including the driver-manager mode, My Team. The two-player split-screen option is also returning, as will the shorter season option for both F1 and F2.

What can you expect from F1® 2021?

One of the things that fans of this car racing game are the new story mode, Braking Point. In this mode, you will race to rise from the ranks of Formula 2 to get a shot at stardom in the world of Formula 1. It will also re-introduce controversial player Devon Butler, who will return to the real-world race. Be warned, though. He will be a rival to your character.

Fans of the F1's career mode will also be pleased to hear that this has been expanded. It now comes with a new two-player option, allowing you to play with a friend online. Alternatively, you can choose a different team and take your rivalry to the tracks. It will also introduce Real-Season Start, enabling you to begin at any point in the season with real-time driver and constructor standing.

As noted, the driver-manager experience introduced in the previous F1 title will return. You can still create your driver, manage their career, and compete as the 11th team on the grid. Split-screen racing will also be available. With this, you can still have the steering assist and an endless suite of options that you can tailor based on your racing preference.

The best version by far

With all the innovations added to the game, it is safe to say that F1® 2021 is the best version of the franchise. The game takes F1 racing to a whole new level with its new story mode and expanded career mode. Not only that, but it also includes the features from the previous game that fans have come to love. Its next-generation Formula One game title is surely apt.
