F1 Mobile Racing builds on the release of the F1 2016 mobile game, whilst also adding a whole wealth of new features. Whilst F1 2016 mobile was a fairly simple port of the desktop and console game, without the in-depth career mode, F1 Mobile Racing is so much more than that.
Single Player Features
Whilst featuring the official tracks, teams and drivers of the 2018 F1 season, the game also allows players to field their own car amongst the rest of the grid and to customise its appearance. You can change how it looks and add various stickers to make it your own unique car and to let your imagination run riot.
You can also develop and upgrade your car just like in F1 2017/2018. Whilst not quite as in depth as the R&D tree on F1 2017, you still have a lot of development you can do on the car in order to become the fastest on the grid. You can research new parts, for example, a new front wing, and then add it to the car and increase its performance. You can improve the cars power, reduce its weight and more. For a mobile adaptation of the full game, it’s filled with content that will make you play for hours and hours.
Single player isn’t where the features end, however. F1 Mobile Racing also features a fantastic real-time multiplayer mode, so you can compete against your friends and other players around the world. The multiplayer modes are called duel modes and are separated into three formats. These formats are yet to be revealed but they will no doubt make for a very interesting online experience. It’s definitely an improvement on what was featured in F1 2016 on mobile, as that game didn’t feature a multiplayer experience.
For a mobile game, F1 Mobile Racing boasts what Codemasters call 'console quality like visuals'. Whilst not perhaps as visually impressive as F1 2018, the game does boast some gorgeous visuals which alone make you want to pick up the game and play it. A lot of Formula 1 games on mobile are of course, not only unofficial, but rarely boast eye pleasing visuals.
This game though is anything but that, and is set to be a visual beauty with some of the best mobile game graphics we have seen in recent years. From the trailer release, the tracks look to have been replicated in stunning detail as well as the cars themselves. Codemasters have even replicated the individual steering wheels for each car.
Release Date, Platforms and Price
Whilst there has been no exact release date yet for the game, Codemasters have said that it will come out this Autumn, perhaps to coincide with the release of F1 2018 which is out on August 24th.
F1 Mobile Racing will be free to play and will be available on iOS and Android mobile devices, including iPads and tablets, this autumn.
So there you have it. Everything you need to know about F1 Mobile Racing so far. More details will no doubt filter out closer to release and we'll update this article when new information is released, but with this and F1 2018 on the way, it will be an exciting few months for Formula 1 and gaming fans.
