Codemasters have finally lifted the lid on their next Formula 1 title, F1 2013. Sadly for those planning to hop onto the next generation as soon as possible, it’s coming to just PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, but it does have some lovely new additions to the title which will help to differentiate it from the last few games.
In addition to the usual churn of modern F1 cars, you’ll also be able to mix things up with a new game mode called F1 Classics, which will pit you in classic cars against 10 legendary drivers and around tracks no longer on the F1 calendar, like Brands Hatch and Jerez.
In quite a canny good move, the 1980s pack is to be bundled in within the standard game, whilst there’s an additional pack of 1990s content coming either in the F1 2013 Classic Edition or for everyone else as post-release DLC. That then gives you another bundle of classic cars, drivers and the Imola and Estoril circuits.
All of this content will be available to take online, though presumably not up against current machines, but I think we can all agree that the best part about this is that we’ll have Murray Walker’s wonderfully iconic voice introducing it in game.
