Codemasters have released a new video revealing the 1976 Ferrari 312 T2 (Set to star in upcoming film Rush) which is to be available to play all those who sign up for the Racenet service when F1 2013 launches on the 3rd October 2013 for each the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox360 platforms.
The ‘Classics’ Trailer reveals the breadth of content set to star in F1 2013: Classic Edition, which expands F1 2013’s full simulation of the 2013 season and 1980s classic content, with additional classic content from the 1990s and two additional classic tracks – Imola and Estoril. The trailer shows the iconic 1976 Ferrari 312 T2 in action, legendary drivers, including Alan Jones, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost and Michael Schumacher, racing cars that defined their eras, and contemporary content from the 2013 season (Granted I nabbed this off the press release as I don’t have much pre-existing knowledge about the history of Formula One racing)..
F1 2013’s classic content is available in a new game mode, F1 Classics, introduced by legendary broadcaster Murray Walker. F1 Classics features a new fictional racing series, allowing players to race cars, drivers and circuits from different eras. Teams are represented by drivers who raced in specific cars, such as Mario Andretti in the 1986 Team Lotus 98T, and drivers who have also represented each team in different eras, such as Michael Schumacher racing Ferraris from the 1980s. Classic content is also available in a range of other game modes, including split-screen and online multiplayer modes. Obviously this classic content will be in addition to all the cars and stars from the 2013 season.
The additional classic content set to feature in the Classic Edition will be made available as separate packs as downloadable content for F1 2013.
