The PC edition of Codemasters®’ highly anticipated F1 2013 is now available on Steam. Fans can see F1 2013 in action in a stunning new video that showcases the game’s latest step forward in visuals, which deliver the ultimate immersion in the 2013 season, alongside ground-breaking new classic content the launch trailer is now playing at www.formula1-game.com.
F1 2013 players will get more from their game with RaceNet, Codemasters’ free online community hub. RaceNet will power regular community challenges, which began last weekend with a Time Trial event in Korea where players competed to set the best time on online leaderboards around the circuit in dry conditions in a Williams car. Each entrant will earn 1000XP which can go towards unlocking rewards, including in-game helmets.
RaceNet also enables players to set up Custom RaceNet events. Players can set their own Time Trial scenarios, choosing circuit, weather conditions, car and duration of the event, and challenge their RaceNet friends to compete to set their best time on leaderboards. RaceNet also includes visual stats and game progress updates and every F1 2013 player with a RaceNet account will receive the 1976 Ferrari 312 T2, as starring in the film Rush. Gamers can sign up to RaceNet today at www.racenet.com.
F1 2013 is further improved and enhanced with wide-ranging technical and gameplay improvements. New Scenario Mode pushes gamers to complete realistic FORMULA ONE challenges and earn awards for quick-fire racing, whilst mid-session saves allow players to complete a full GRAND PRIX weekend at their own pace. An expanded Young Driver Test, based on the real world event set at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina, eases novices into the world of FORMULA ONE and includes a range of challenges to enable players to master elite driving techniques. F1 2013 makes another dramatic leap forward in graphical quality, setting the benchmark for how good a racing game can look, and improved driver AI behaviour will further immerse players in unique FORMULA ONE races.
The title will also be available for download from the PlayStation Network on October 8 and Xbox Games on Demand on October 15 with the 1990s DLC packs available at launch.
