Hype Video: New F1 2015 Trailer Lists New Game Modes And Shows Off Beautiful Capabilities Of New Game Engine

Posted on 07.02.15 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Codemasters_F1_2015_Silverstone_small

Codemasters F1 2015 is coming out soon and we are definitely excited for it.  We had a taste of it at E3 2015 last month and while it was just a short experience we enjoyed it.  Now, it is obviously still possible that once the full game comes out there may be a pile of things we hate about it.  But, that seems unlikely at this point.  Today, just before the British Grand Prix weekend Codemasters has released a new trailer which lists off some of F1 2015’s game modes and features as well as demonstrates the kind of imagery their new game engine can muster.  They also released some in-game Silverstone screen shots as well.  Check out the trailer and the screen shot gallery below!

E3 2015: We Play Codemasters F1 2015! We Suck At It But It Was Still Pretty Sweet!

Posted on 06.22.15 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Codemasters_F1_2015_screenshot_small

I got to play plenty of racing games at E3 this year but the game I was really looking forward to getting my hands on was the new F1 game from Codemasters.  F1 2015 is the first Codemasters F1 game on the new crop of gaming consoles (PlayStation 4, Xbox One).  Not to say that the previous F1 games haven’t been awesome but I always knew that if they had a more powerful console at their disposal the team could really create something cool.  So, how is it looking so far?  Check out my gameplay impression as well as a quick interview with Mr. Lee Mather who is the Principal Game designer for F1 2015.  You can also click the thumbnails for HD screen shots!

Video Game Hype: Lewis Hamilton Is Front And Center On Codemasters F1 2015 Box Art.

Posted on 04.29.15 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Codemasters_F1_2015_BoxArt_Small

Codemasters latest F1 game and its first on the new consoles (Xbox One, PlayStation 4) is only about a month and a half away from its June release but new tidbits are still making their way out to the interwebs.  In the latest release Codemasters has revealed the official box art for F1 2015 and it features 2014 F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton.  Joining Lewis on the cover is four time champion Sebastian Vettel, two time champion Fernando Alonso, Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Riccardo, and F1 mainstay Felipe Massa.  Noticeably missing from the box is Lewis’ main rival Nico Rosberg or “Mr Personality” AKA Kimi Raikkonen.

You might be asking yourself why this box art is newsworthy.  Well the main answer to that is the fact that there are actual drivers on the box this time.  This is something uncommon to the Codemasters F1 series.  Nearly every Codemasters F1 game so far has featured a non-descript driver and car on the cover.  Whether this was done to make it easier for players to imagine themselves in the role of an F1 driver or if it was simply because of legal stuff is unknown.  Before now F1 2012 was the only game that featured any kind of actual F1 likeness and even then no driver’s faces were actually seen, just their cars.

So, not only is this box the first ever in the Codemasters F1 series to feature actual driver faces but its also only the second box to show actual cars with their liveries.  Personally, I like this route better than the stig-ish look of the other boxes.  Hopefully this trend continues!  Oh, one more thing.  Codemasters also released some new tasty screen shots for you to enjoy.  Check them out along with the new box art by clicking on the thumbnails below.

What do you think about the F1 2015 box art?  Do you like the fact that they are using real drivers on the cover?  Or do you prefer the “driver with no name” route from before?  Let us know in the comments or tweet to us at @MotorworldHype
