The Game Review
Let’s talk new F1 2018 gameplay. Based on the early videos and gameplay released, a lot of new features off track were the first noticeable changes. First was the player interaction in career mode with the world. One such as a reporter asking the player certain questions that develop the player’s persona.
Other features include the team’s fan base and the player’s reputation within it. For example, the game now allows players to choose their teammates on the track for races but certain benefits or consequences with the people players choose. For example, beat your partner and your own stock rises but lose consistently and your stock goes down. However, picking a worse teammate on purpose also has its own consequences on the race track.
One of the most loved features of the F1 series is the car making process. In the past, players could develop cars using earned credits and applying them to tech trees. While these features carry over to F1 2018, an additional feature is your team’s own specialities and weaknesses in developing cars. At the final stages of developing the car, you may also hit a dead end due to these features as the final tech branch remains ambiguous.
Now for those asking, “Ok, that’s cool but what about the racing?” Don’t worry, the Codemasters has you covered there as well. To be fair, most of the driving controls remain with a few small tweaks as the saying goes, don’t fix what isn’t broken. There has been a graphics update for more stunning scenery to enjoy as expected.
The atmosphere will create the race track according to a lot of features such as jet trail, clouds, and more. As a result, racing features have been improved for a more realistic sense such as dust kicking up or different types of hazes due to weather conditions. Moreover, the game’s bumps have been updated to the car’s physics to be calculated at 1000 times per sec. In other words, it makes brakes and drifts feel more violent and real while making the racing experience more thrilling to enjoy.
There are a few missing points that we are still waiting on such as the multiplayer features but so far, the game looks like a solid pickup for any racing fan. Another plus I forgot to mention is that the game will be optimized for 4K display so for all you 4K cultists, make sure to give the game its full appreciation.
