F1 2014 Launch Trailer



October 14, 2014

It’s launch week – which means it’s time for our launch trailer!

The 2014 Formula One season has been one of the most exciting seasons in years – incredible wheel-to-wheel action, intense rivalries, and a stunning battle for the championship. We really wanted to capture this in our launch trailer and have even included a few of this season’s key moments – keep an eye out for them and let us know which ones you spot.

One of the key things we looked into this season was how the new cars behaved on track. It was obvious from the get-go that these things were all-new beasts – with a torque heavy power unit that often made the car a handful control. We’re very happy with how the car handles with all of the assists turned on, it’s a very accessible experience, but we haven’t forgotten those that turn the assist off. It’s a brand new challenge. Senior Games Designer Lee Mather explains:

This year’s cars have an all-new torque heavy power unit that deliver a lot of power; fast. You’ll see this reflected in-game as soon as you get into the car with the extra power kicking in almost immediately as you apply throttle and race off the start line. And for those that like a real challenge, removing the game’s assists will create for a tough, but rewarding experience as you battle with the car’s erratic handling and control its new-found power on the track that we’ve seen this 2014 season.

F1 2014 launches October 17th in the EU and October 21st in NA. Make sure to check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for all the latest info on the game and this year’s season.
