F1 24 Launches May 31 With New Features And Career Mode

F1 24 Reveal Screenshots Features

EA Sports has officially revealed F1 24 to its fans with a reveal trailer and a list of new features and screenshots. Launching May 31, the game includes an overhauled career mode, a new dynamic handling system, circuit updates, My Team, F1 World, and more.

Starting with the gameplay, EA Sports Dynamic Handling “redefines the feel of the car to produce a realistic and predictable performance across wheel and pad”. The developers at Codemasters worked with F1 World Champion Max Verstappen on the new feature which “adds new suspension kinematics, an upgraded tyre model, advanced aerodynamic simulation, and new engine and car setup options”, according to EA.

For Career Mode, F1 24 will see a number of new improvements and updates, including the ability to play as one of the 20 drivers from the 2024 F1 season for the first time. Other features of the career mode, courtesy of EA Sports, in F1 24 include:

  • Gain Recognition: Build reputation within the Paddock through on-track objectives. Race-day tasks keep players focused on the chequered flag. Completing Contract Targets can help secure a new deal or pave the way for secret meetings to negotiate a move to a bitter rival.
  • R&D Upgrades: Driver reputation also affects the support players get from their team. The greater the rep, the more motivated the team. Players can go all-in on one innovation or spread the resources for more balanced development.
  • Earn Accolades: In addition to short-term achievements, every driver has longer-term goals based on season expectations. These could range from number of Top 10 finishes, Pole Positions to claiming the World Championship.
  • Race with a Friend: Join forces or race as rivals in two-player Career. With individual driver objectives, players must stay focused to become the team’s number one driver.
  • Challenge Career: A perfect introduction before committing to a 24-race season. Jump into the shoes of a pre-selected F1® driver and compete in a series of mini seasons. Community voting will influence the conditions and circuits for future events.

“The new handling model, powered by EA SPORTS Dynamic Handling will enable players to get maximum performance from their car, with authentic physics giving them the confidence in racing wheel to wheel with their rivals,” said Lee Mather, Senior Creative Director at Codemasters, via release.

“Our biggest Career innovation since 2016 delivers more of what our players want with greater variety away from the track. Alongside new handling and Career innovations, updated circuits, new audio, and a refreshed broadcast presentation give players the feeling of being closer to the grid.”

When it releases, F1 24 will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
