Greetings F1® Mobile Racing players! I come bearing good news…
First off, on behalf of the whole team, I must say a H U G E thank you to everyone who has become a part of the F1® Mobile Racing community, whether that’s in the game, on our social channels, or in the Forums. If you’re not part of the action yet, what are you waiting for? Download the game now for FREE on iOS and Android to see what all the fuss is about.
We’re now more than eight months on from the game’s initial launch, and ever since last October we’ve been full speed ahead with updates, livestreams, trailers, you name it – aiming to improve F1® Mobile Racing at all times. New features and ways to play have been regularly added, and thanks to the feedback from you, the community, we’ve been constantly optimising and giving you more of what you want.
And the best part? We’re in no mood to stop now.
What’s New in Update 6?
The next step for F1® Mobile Racing begins with Update 6, which is very feedback-focused. Since Update 5 in April, we’ve been hearing the feedback and working on improvements, which will continue in U6, with further boosts in visual and technical quality across the board.
In terms of new content, we’re aligning with the release of our good friend F1 2019 by adding the official car chassis models for every team in this season’s FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP! Whilst the official F1 regulation chassis (F1-TR19) has been used in Mobile Racing since April, the unique model for each team will be added to their respective cars, free of charge, in Update 6. Of course, no further purchase will be required.
Also, we’re beginning to roll out the addition of haptic feedback for the game! Beginning with selected iOS devices, and coming to Android in the near future, you’ll now feel responses and vibrations from your device at relevant moments, such as when you go over kerbs or make contact with another car. It’s a new layer of immersion for the game and we can’t wait to see what you all think of it.
GP Events and the Season Championship mode is also getting some new content. First off, a race reset option is being added, so that players have the opportunity to restart the Race Series of an event if they are struggling to climb up the leaderboards. On top of that, the mid-season rewards for Season Championship are being added, ready to drop during the summer break in August. Currency and R&D parts are included, as well as something brand new to get your paws on…
That’s right – the official F1® NEEEUM livery, revealed at the beginning of this season, will be awarded to players at the top of the global leaderboard!
Update 6 is all about further stability and community-driven additions to F1® Mobile Racing, and we’re aiming to launch it by the end of June. Thank you for constantly helping us shape the game, as we begin to write the next chapter of our free-to-play racer.
Keep an eye on our social channels (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) for previews and news on the launch of Update 6 – and once that’s done, prepare for some very interesting news on future game updates. It’s going to be the feel-good hit of the summer. ;)
