Releasing a new video, Codemasters has announced that F1 2013, the latest entry in the award-winning series of officially licensed FORMULA 1 videogames, will launch on October 4th, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. This hot lap video uses work-in-progress in-game footage featuring the Hungaroring circuit which is set to stage the FORMULA 1 MAGYAR NAGYDÍJ 2013 this weekend. The video shows Toro Rosso–Ferrari's Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo taking on the famous circuit and is narrated by Anthony Davidson, former FORMULA ONE driver and Technical Consultant on F1 2013, who describes how drivers should attack each corner and carry as much speed as possible through the tight and twisty track in the battle for points this weekend.
F1 2013 will feature a new gameplay mode called F1 Classics giving fans the chance to race classic cars on iconic circuits against legendary drivers for the first time in this series. Introduced by legendary broadcaster Murray Walker, F1 Classics features a new fictional racing series allowing players to race cars, drivers and circuits from the 1980s. Classic content is also available in a range of other game modes, including split-screen and online multiplayer modes.
Further content will be available in a premium edition of the game, F1 2013: CLASSIC EDITION, featuring 1990s Content and Classic Tracks. These two packs will be made available for purchase as optional DLC for players of F1 2013.
