Codemasters, which has been working on F1 2019 for about two years, calls this its “most ambitious release in franchise history.” The graphics appear to have received a significant upgrade, and the visuals have been updated to give the feel of real F1 broadcasts. For the first time ever, players will be able to customize 2019 regulation cars for multiplayer racing, and the game has a dedicated Esports hub. F1 2019 offers racing in either F2 or F1, and includes a career story mode that challengers players to race up the ranks. The 2019 F2 Championship content will come later as a free digital update during the season.
