Codemasters and new owner EA announce F1 2021

Lap it up.

Codemasters and new owner EA have announced F1 2021.

The racing game launches 16th July 2021 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam.

As you'd expect, the game features the teams, drivers and circuits for the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship. Expect a "visual uplift" and faster loading times on PS5 and Xbox Series X, Codemasters said.

There's also a brand-new story mode, and expanded career mode with a two-player option, and three new circuits: Portimão, Imola, and Jeddah.

F1 2021 is the first in Codemasters' series to be published by EA Sports after EA bought the British game company for $1.2bn.

Here's the official blurb:

"In Braking Point, the brand-new story mode, players take on an epic journey, as they rise from the ranks of Formula 2 to a shot at stardom in the world of Formula 1. It immerses players into the glamorous world of F1, giving a taste of the lifestyle both on and off the track: the rivalries, emotion and dedication needed to compete at the highest level. It also re-introduces players to the much-maligned Devon Butler, who makes his return having debuted in F1 2019."

There's no mention of an Ultimate Team-style mode for F1 2021. Perhaps that will come with next year's game.
