F1 2013 release date confirmed

Codemasters racer launching this October

Codemasters has announced a F1 2013 release date of October 4 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Featuring all the cars, circuits and star drivers from the 2013 season, the game will be available in two editions: F1 2013 and F1 2013: Classic Edition.


The racing title will feature a new gameplay mode called F1 Classics, in which players race classic cars on iconic circuits against legendary drivers.

The standard edition of the game provides access to iconic cars and drivers from the 1980s, while the premium edition delivers more classic content from the 1990s.

To mark the release date announcement, Codemasters has released a hot lap video on the Hungaroring circuit, which will host this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix.

Earlier this month, F1 series creative director Steve Hood appeared to rule out a Wii U version of F1 2013, claiming "it'd have to be a very different game just to run" on Nintendo's console. He also said a Vita version "just doesn't make financial sense".

F1 2012 released on September 21 last year for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. In our F1 2012 review, we said: "New modes and challenges will open up F1 2012 to a wider audience, but the strong underlying mechanics will still satisfy hardcore drivers."
