Christmas time. A time to come together with those closest to you, and share wonderful experiences together. Right?
Orrrr, it’s a time to play all your cool new games with your mates for hours on end. When it comes to Sauber F1® Team’s 2018 driver line-up of Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson, they side-stepped the turkey and tedious Christmas cracker jokes to get their hands on F1® Mobile Racing!
We took a trip to the Sauber HQ in Switzerland to introduce two of motorsport’s finest to our latest handheld, free-to-play racer, available now on Apple and Android devices. It didn’t take long for them to learn the ropes and dive into a couple of races, all whilst offering their feedback…
“The graphics are very impressive, and the tracks are done very well also,” said Leclerc, whilst Ericsson was equally complimentary. “It’s very nice. The tracks are done so well. It’s really cool that you can customise things, and I think that adds a lot to the game.” Charles and Marcus jumped into Duel mode, in which players race against each other in fast-paced events to win rewards and progress through the game. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg – with single-player options, a deep R&D system and customisation features never seen before in the series. Your F1®, your way.
We’ve had an absolute blast paying a visit to F1® teams and talent over the past few months, who enjoyed taking F1® Mobile Racing for a spin. As well as Charles and Marcus, we also visited Red Bull Racing earlier this year to give Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly some time with the game. They couldn’t wipe the grins off of their faces when playing the game, and we hope the millions of players who’ve downloaded it feel the same way!
F1® Mobile Racing is a live and ever-evolving racing experience, with new content and features added regularly. Just earlier this week, Update 2 added a festive feel to the game, with some wintry livery options, as well as new circuits, more R&D cards, and further gameplay improvements. So much more is already in the pipeline for 2019, including content from the new season, so watch this space. ;)
