It may not be as iconic as The Chain – the ‘proper’ F1 theme – used by the good old BBC for many years, and it may still have some way to go to even be talked about in the same vein as ITV’s use of Lift me Up by Moby or more recently SKY F1’s Just Drive, but the banging beats of the official F1 theme for the 2018 season are still worth taking in… even more so than when Codemasters stick it over the top of their latest F1 2018 trailer!
Released today is the latest trailer for F1 2018 and whilst it doesn’t really bring us anything we didn’t know already, petrol-heads around the globe should be checking it out nonetheless.
With the second official gameplay trailer for F1 2018, the official videogame of the 2018 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, you’ll find that it features some stunning in-game footage and the new official F1 theme music, written by composer Brian Tyler.
Commenting on the game’s recreation of the real world sport, F1® 2018’s Art Director, Stu Campbell said: “F1® has undergone a huge visual rebrand this year. It has an exciting, fresh new look and we are looking to bring that into the game as much as we can. Our aim this year was to create as big a visual improvement as we possibly could to give a more authentic and realistic experience. When you see it side by side with the 2017 game I think you will see a huge leap forward.”
For those not in the know, F1 2018 will come to Xbox One, PS4 and PC on Friday 24th August 2018, featuring all the official teams, the drivers and the 21 circuits of the current thrilling season. That means you’ll get the opportunity to jump into the shoes of Lewis Hamilton, grab the overalls of Seb Vettel and drive like Max Verstappen and Danny Ric after ignoring all team orders, taking in the likes of Circuit Paul Ricard and the Hockenheimring, as well the challenge of taming the beasts of yesteryear thanks to the inclusion of 20 iconic cars from the history of the sport.
