Finally!

Codemasters and EA have announced the key details for F1 2021 at long last, including a launch trailer.

Let's take a look at all the crucial news that you need to know.

Release date

The official release date for F1 2021 is 16 July.

This is right in line with previous releases, and Codies must be pretty confident of hitting it to announce now.

Early access

Can you play any earlier than 16 July? Of course! The Deluxe Edition of F1 2021 comes with several bonuses and three days early access.

Trailer

The launch trailer will get the hairs standing up on the back of your neck.

Devon Butler returns in Braking Point, a whole new story mode for F1 2021! We can't wait to see what challenges this mode presents.

My Team & Career Mode

The introduction of My Team in F1 2020 allowed racers to play the role of team owner and lead driver.

You had to allocate money, develop facilities, sign sponsors, and even pick your teammate. It was a revolution for the game, and saw many players out-and-out abandon Career Mode for the new mode.

My Team returns for F1 2021, but it's Career Mode where the changes are coming. There is a new two-player Career for players to try, with each driver able to set their own assists and play either co-operatively or competitively!

Imola, Portimao, and Jeddah coming

The F1 2021 calendar has had Codemasters pulling their hair out for a year now.

With Imola and Portimao being late additions to the 2021 calendar, and Jeddah only just having its layout confirmed, it looked unlikely the trio of tracks would make the game.

Confirmed in the announcement of the game is that all three tracks will be coming as post-release content.

That means they won't be there for day one, but we will get them eventually!

Iconic drivers landing in My Team

Players that get the Deluxe Edition will receive seven iconic drivers that they can use in My Team. Who these drivers are we don't yet know, but it's an awesome addition for sure.

It also suggests that Codemasters could be preparing the ground for some form of Ultimate Team mode.

It wouldn't be a surprise given EA's involvement and F1's rich history, but what it would look like remains to be seen.
