Codemasters have released the announce trailer for the Formula One licensed. F1 2021 game. The announce trailer shows little but here is what we have learned.

A new, previously leaked, gamemode will be introduced to the game called Braking Point, as a play on words to the phrase ‘breaking point.’ The trailer shows an animation involving a Formula One car crashing and a fight between drivers. This seemingly indicates that the gamemode will follow the ever-changing drama of the sport, in a way that F1 games have been yet to replicate. In F1 2019® we saw the introduction of Devon Butler and Lukas Weber as characters to create drama, something we may see returning for the 2021 edition of the game.
Co-op career mode
Something that has been highly requested by the F1 game community since its removal some years ago is co-op seasons. Co-op seasons will allow players to play with their friends online, something that will be gratefully received by the F1 community.
An unexpected addition to this game is the ‘real-season start’ mode. This allows players to select a driver and jump into the F1 2021 season with real-time constructors and drivers championship standings. This will allow players to try and take their favourite driver to the title in a realistic manner.
The most important thing revealed was the release date of July 16, the weekend of the British Grand Prix.
