The Formula 1 franchise is back which this time falls into the hands of Electronic Arts. Of course, its developers in Codemasters remain the same, so too many changes are not expected in the playable, but in the production values that EA can contribute. The announcement was made in a lengthy press release revealing the release date and the pl atforms it will hit, as well as the game modes.
This installment will release a new “story mode” called “Braking Point” and, as described, it is similar to the “career mode” of other installments. At Braking Point we will control a pilot who starts in F2 and must climb the category until he reaches the top.
We will release news
Franchise Director Lee Mathers commented on the following:
“Braking Point is an exciting innovation that has been in the works for years. We are proud to expand the experience of the game and allow players to experience the ups and downs of life in Formula 1® both on and off the track.
But this does not mean that the “career mode” disappears, this now will have a multiplayer option for our partner to join our team and collaborate to win the championship. In addition, we can modify the season so that it is short, or that we directly start it at a certain point.
