F1 24 – trailer, career mode and full feature set revealed!

Red Bull – leading the charge in F1 24

If you’re in for the adrenaline of the F1 circus, you’re going to want to get behind the wheel of F1 24 when it releases in May 2024 on Xbox, PlayStation and PC. You’ll want to do it even more once you get eyes on the reveal trailer, career mode details and full feature list… 

Unveiled today through EA and Codemasters is pretty much everything you would ever need to know about F1 24. Due to launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC come May 31st (May 28th if you pre-order and get early access), F1 24 should well be the greatest F1 title ever. Consider the reveal trailer, the career mode details, the features promised, and hopes are extremely high. 

Closer to the action

In F1 24 players will get to feel closer to the action than ever before. This comes about with precision control, courtesy of the new EA SPORTS Dynamic Handling. You see, for the first time in the F1 series, the fan-favourite Career mode will allow players to compete as one of the twenty drivers taking part in the 2024 F1 season. It’s here where they’ll get to define their legacy, with even more ways to connect across Formula 1 and F2.

EA and Codemasters have done this by working closely with Max Verstappen (current World Champion and Champions Edition cover star), as EA SPORTS Dynamic Handling looks to redefine the feel of the car to produce a realistic and predictable performance across wheel and controller.

There will be all-new suspension kinematics, upgraded tyre models, advanced aerodynamic simulation, and new engine and car setup options all to enhance the driving experience. Cornering, rolling resistance, brake pressure, ambient track temperature, and variable conditions will also enable drivers to receive immediate feedback to maximize their on-track performance.

Circuit upgrades

But it won’t jsut be with the cars in which enhancements are found. Circuits add to the race week experience, but they change. For instance, Silverstone has received a significant update to deliver authentic circuit accuracy, whilst further amendments come to Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, Lusail International Circuit, and Jeddah Corniche Circuit to ensure that in-game tracks match their real-world counterparts.

Better still, you’ll also find actual driver audio samples taken from F1 broadcasts. These add a new dimension as they react to on-track incidents. And yes, a new broadcast presentation package and cutscenes add to the race day immersion.

“The new handling model, powered by EA SPORTS Dynamic Handling will enable players to get maximum performance from their car, with authentic physics giving them the confidence in racing wheel to wheel with their rivals,” said Lee Mather, Senior Creative Director at Codemasters. “Our biggest Career innovation since 2016 delivers more of what our players want with greater variety away from the track. Alongside new handling and Career innovations, updated circuits, new audio, and a refreshed broadcast presentation give players the feeling of being closer to the grid.”

A revamped career

Want more? Well, as part of the revamped Career mode, players can also choose from an up-and-coming competitor from F2, a legendary icon, or go about creating their own legacy. Further innovations to fully immerse drivers into the exhilarating world of Formula 1 will also be present. This include:

Gain Recognition: Build reputation within the Paddock through on-track objectives. Race-day tasks keep players focused on the chequered flag. Completing Contract Targets can help secure a new deal or pave the way for secret meetings to negotiate a move to a bitter rival.
R&D Upgrades: Driver reputation also affects the support players get from their team. The greater the rep, the more motivated the team. Players can go all-in on one innovation or spread the resources for more balanced development.
Earn Accolades: In addition to short-term achievements, every driver has longer-term goals based on season expectations. These could range from number of Top 10 finishes, Pole Positions to claiming the World Championship.
Race with a Friend: Join forces or race as rivals in two-player Career. With individual driver objectives, players must stay focused to become the team’s number one driver.
Challenge Career: A perfect introduction before committing to a 24-race season. Jump into the shoes of a pre-selected F1® driver and compete in a series of mini seasons. Community voting will influence the conditions and circuits for future events.

F1 World is back!

And of course, there is the return of F1 World, the home of Multiplayer, Grand Prix, Time Trial and the new Fanzone feature. It’s here where players will begin to align with their favourite team and driver over the course of a Podium Pass season and join a game-wide, time-limited league that includes collaborative goals whilst competing against rival teams.

Furthermore, My Team returns with the inclusion of two new icons. Expect to see legendary former World Champion James Hunt and Colombia’s most successful F1 driver, Juan Pablo Montoya, running as exclusives to Champion Edition players.

You can get pre-ordering F1 24 right now from the usual digital storefronts. The Standard Edition may be your bag, but we reckon the extra cash on the Champions Edition is the way to go. Remember, three days early access… 

Give the trailer a watch too.
