F1 2019 Legends Edition Arriving In June


In what’s possibly some of the most ambitious news we’ve heard in a while, today Codemasters has officially announced that it will be releasing F1 2019 in June 2019, and with it various editions including F1 2019 Legends Edition and F1 2019 Annviersary Edition. F1 2018 launched towards the end of August 2018, and while some fans might be a bit anxious at reading about a 10 month turn-around or lifecycle, Codemasters had previously revealed that F1 2019 had two full years of development, saying it definitely won’t be a quick rehash.

More news out of Codemasters today revealed that players will be able to change the liveries of not just their race-cars but also the drivers’ likeness, meaning you will be able to look like one of the many F1 2019 legends featured in the game if you so choose. You can read more about what was announced today at the official blog here, otherwise check out the official F1 2019 Legends Edition: Senna & Prost trailer below:

 

We’re very happy to tell you that the greatest ever F1 rivalry between Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost will be renewed in F1 2019, the official video game of the 2019 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP. Fancy getting your hands on this? Those of you who purchase the ‘F1 2019 Legends Edition’ will get to drive as Ayrton Senna in his 1990 McLaren MP4/5B and Alain Prost in the Ferrari F1-90, face-off over eight race challenges, and receive exclusive Senna and Prost themed multiplayer car liveries.

While the F1 2019 Legends Edition cover art features none other than F1 racing legends Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, the Anniversary Edition and presumably standard edition will feature current F1 2019 legends Daniel Ricciardo and Lewis Hamilton.

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed F1 2018 at launch last August, giving it 4 stars and saying, “the package grows even larger with role-playing elements, more tracks, more cars, and more gameplay options for not just fans of Formula 1 but fans of racing games in general. F1 2018 is no longer a simple F1 game that you can dismiss, it’s a game that demands respect among the top tier of racing games available today.

F1 2019 launches with three days early access on June 25th, 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC platforms. Stay tuned to Rocket Chainsaw for a full review at launch.
