With F1™ 2015 Codemasters has brought us the first official Formula One game for the next generation consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and it's of course also playable on PC! The game is based on the 2015 Formula One season, featuring all the teams and driver line-ups, including the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez. As if that wasn’t enough already, Codemasters has included all cars, drivers and circuits from the 2014 Formula One season as bonus content!

 

 

The game runs on an all-new version of the EGO game engine, providing a large number of improvements to the game's physics models. The cars have a lot of torque and power and it will take some time to master the race monsters, but once you do, it feels great! It’s challenging, but that’s what makes driving in this realistic game so fun!

For the people that want to take their racing to an even higher level, F1 2015 featers an all-new Pro Season mode that is more challenging than the normal gameplay, with no HUD and no assist, which includes traction, ABS, and transmission, with the hardest level possible.

Thanks to the voice recognition software of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, players can to talk to their race engineers during the race and ask for race information, weather updates, tire status and even request a change of tires or wing.

The AI of the NPC’s is good, which makes every race interesting, but we found a minor flaw the way your competitors behave on the track. When you’re in a hot lap and another driver comes out of the pit lane, you move aside. In F1 2015 the NPC’s don’t move aside and that can be irritating, so that’s something that could be improved.

Besides the realistic, challenging gameplay, F1 2015 features great graphics and is real eye candy for the fans of Formula One, that can drive among their heroes (or rivals!). With games getting more and more realistic and accessories like Playseat® racing simulators, high end racing wheels and virtual reality around the corner, we’re looking at a great future of playing racing games!

In our opinion, F1 2015 is a must have for every gamer that enjoys Formula One racing and wants to race with the news drivers and cars, in a very realistic game! So get a copy of the game and race in this weekend's Hungarian GP, at home!
