Racers, start your engines, because F1 2021 is coming to PlayStation, Xbox and PC on July 16th
Codemasters and EA have announced the first details for the F1 2021 game, which will feature an all-new story mode and three new tracks.
F1 2021 is coming to PlayStation, Xbox and PC this summer after the announcement was made on Twitter last night. Acting as the first Codemasters edition of the annual title since its acquisition by EA, which was completed earlier this year, the popular racing game is set to be released on 16 July.
The game will feature Imola, Portimao and the new Jeddah street track, giving players the choice of choosing to play co-operatively and share in the success or compete and strive for personal glory. F1 2021 will also feature a new story mode called Braking Point.

The mode will immerse players into the glamorous world of F1, giving a taste of the lifestyle both on and off the track: the rivalries, emotion and dedication needed to compete at the highest level. It will also re-introduce fictional rival Devon Butler, who appeared in F1 2019.
Also returning is the driver-manager ‘My Team mode’ which will now feature at least seven classic drivers, and which will be unveiled at a later date.
Further additions to the game for 2021 include a new two-player career mode, allowing gamers to work through seasons with a friend online, and a real-season start for career mode that enables players to start the season at any time with the real-world points standings.
F1 2021 will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S.
