F1 2018 – Real F1 driver goes for a drive in new gameplay trailer

Codemasters’ newest title F1 2018 will be launching in a few weeks. As we approach release, the team is showing off more and more of the game. A  brand new gameplay trailer has recently been released which shows real life F1 driver Nico Hülkenberg going for a hot lap around the Hockenheimring track in F1 2018. Check it out:

While the ‘Work in Progress’ banner is visible during the gameplay sections of the trailer, it does look like the game is shaping up well even in this pre-release state. Codemasters has quite the pedigree, so there’s a pretty good chance the game will turn out to be a hit when it launches on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 24, 2018.


Press release below:

Codemasters® has today released a new video for F1® 2018, the official videogame of the 2018 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™, with Renault Sport Formula One™ Team’s Nico Hülkenberg driving a lap of Hockenheimring, the home of the German Grand Prix™.

The video, available to view now at www.youtube.com/formula1game, shows the German driver navigating a lap of the famous circuit whilst talking about his home race returning, and giving advice on how to get the best possible lap time.

The return of the German Grand Prix to the calendar for this season sees Hockenheimring included in F1 2018 along with Circuit Paul Ricard, which features in the series for the first time, and the 19 other official F1 circuits from around the world.

“It is always fantastic to have the real F1 drivers spending time with the game and giving us feedback on the handling and the game as a whole,” commented Lee Mather, Game Director, F1 2018. “The drivers can provide a finer level of insight. For example, they can talk to us about facets of the circuits that only they know.”

F1 2018 offers the most complete Formula 1 gaming experience to date, reflecting the real sport, both on and off the track. Pressurised press interviews, expansive research and development, rule changes between seasons and mid-season driver moves adds even greater depth to the Career mode.
