VideoGamer.com has acquired the first screenshots of F1 2014, offering the first glimpse at this year's game ahead of its official reveal later today.
It would be stupid not to bring it out on the next gen as the spoke about the power of the new consoles! One can only hope they do Can't wait to get the game
Looks last gen
No next gen, no sale. On another note, doesn't seem to be many people who buy codies games at release any more, considering just how quickly they always get discounted these days. GRID autosport has already been slashed in price in the UK
Next gen is not only about graphics (kiddo). So, if the game would feauture very good physics you wouldnt buy it? LOL
Not sure how you read into it that I was only on about graphics kiddo (which is kinda of strange considering I am the wrong side of 40). I still own my old gen consoles, however, I am reluctant to start new games on the old gen if possible. And lets be honest, it's a codies game, the physics will be the same as all their others
They have announced it's old gen and PC only. Next gen is coming next year but earlier in the season. Had a feeling this was the case, no company announces a game just 2 and a bit months before release. They've done this because it's in the F1 license that they have to knock out a game every year. By just sticking to old gen this year it buys them more time for the next gen versions next year. Danowat, you are right most people including me don't buy their games anymore. The reasons are for years now they have been releasing broken unfinished games as beta's and think it's ok for paying customers to do their testing. They release a patch which breaks more than it fixes, then it's stuff em we will sort it next year. Next year it's the same old rinse and repeat. Then there's their rally games with no rallying in and no X games crap is not rally. That's what joyriders do with a stolen car on a fri/sat night round an empty car park. Then the mess that Grid 2 was in and 5 minutes later they announce a sequel that is going to be what Grid 2 should of been and you expect people who got scolded to keep chucking money down the drain on broken shoddy goods. Hence people now are boycotting in droves, I love F1 but haven't touched them after 2010 (and that was a mess). Personally I can't see Codemasters making it through the rest of this gen before they go belly up. It all started going south when the original owners sold them to an Indian company.
They have just annualized all their games now. Instead of spending 2 or three years working on a new experience with new content, they just change the name and give it a fresh coat of paint. They seem to think that spending half the time to make double the games is a better business strategy. So far it is working because people are buying them like sports games. Their last good game imo was DiRT 3.
the most fun i had on a codies games was Colin Mcrae on the PS1. Absolutely loved it. I wasn't great at it but i loved it all the same.
After the first GRID and F1 2012 (both great racing games i finished multiple times), everything from codies since has been a dissapointment, culminating in the mess that was GRID 2! I didn't get halfway through that game before i traded it in. Im gonna wait until next season for a proper next gen F1 game (which i will get on PC).
Awesome! I love the extra detail on the wheels think the wheels have more grooves on them this year. And they all look nice and shiny. Maybe about 10% plus more shiny than last years polish they used. And the shadows! Don't forget the shadows!
Not capitalizing on the millions of ps4 / xone owners looking for some racing action . Ah well , at least we are getting Project Cars.
Stopped buying Codemasters' games ages ago! I just play them when they come to PSPlus these days!!
I love the F1 series. Well if the game manages to finally run at 60fps on the consoles then you're getting a slice of next gen aren't you..
I love the F1 series (played 2010, 2011, 2012), skipped the 2013 version and decided to wait for the 2014 next gen version. Can't wait to see all the new features in the next gen version not to mention the photo realistic next gen graphics, i hope Logitech sends an update pach for the game so i can continue to use my Logitech G27 racing wheel because it wouldn't make any sense to have to buy an new racing wheel.
Same, F1 2013 seemed to have more feedback somehow with tire wear. You could easily feel from driving how much life they had. I was pretty impressed how they managed to do it. Not many other differences apart from that though. Looking forward to the 2014 turbo engines and how they drive.
Codemasters games have no realism. In visuals or gameplay. They are pure arcade games.
That's a pretty general statement. You obviously haven't played the F1 series with all the assists turned off. It doesn't get more sim than that unless you move to iRacing, Assetto Corsa or GTR2 with a wheel and pedals setup. On PC at least F1 is visually no slouch either. The Forza series are my favorite but they get less Sim every generation and its cause for concern. If Forza 6 knocks it out the park ill buy a X1 straight away. GT series are fun too but there's nothing sim about them what so ever. There's a focus on understeer physics and that's all. Also the car selection like the days of GT2 simply isn't there anymore . If your a fan of F1 or race sims this series is brilliant. Since F1 is a yearly sport it can get away with small changes and call it a new game. Their Grid series cant and shouldn't.
