Released on July 16, F1 2021 has experienced a few technical hiccups since, was not the expected technical slap, and some circuits were missing. But since the last update, the title takes the forward step and reveals its plans to us.
Following a technical update re-enabling ray-tracing on PS5, Codemasters today announced the deploying a content update for F1 2021. As promised, it contains one of the three new circuits in the game, namely Portimão, where the Portuguese Grand Prix takes place. Alongside this new route, we find a performance update single-seaters, and the new Aston Martin safety car. In October, virtual pilots will be able to try to win at Imola, and will be able to take advantage of the F1 Sports update. In November, that’s it new Jeddah circuit, located in Saudi Arabia and still under construction, which will be integrated into F1 2021. In parallel, we will find the update F2 Season.
We’re excited to finally release our first free tour and tell players what to expect in the coming months.
