F1® Mobile Racing – Announcing the 2019 Season Update
New look. New content. Same goal.
With Update 5 for F1® Mobile Racing, we’re #ChangingTheGame.
F1® Mobile Racing gives you the FIRST chance to take your place in the 2019 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™, as the official team liveries, driver helmets and updated circuits are added to the free-to-play handheld game, available on iOS and Android.
Once Update 5 arrives, compete against the 2019 grid in all modes, lining up on the grid against new talents like Lando Norris and George Russell, as well as superstars like Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel. Want to follow in the footsteps of those drivers? Head to the in-game Shop to grab any of the helmets, or add any of the 10 team liveries to your F1® Regulation Car – the F1-TR19.
Team liveries from the previous season will be removed, but for existing Mobile Racing players who have already purchased a livery, they will receive the corresponding 2019 team livery free of charge. For example, if you already own the 2018 Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport livery, the 2019 Mercedes colours will be waiting for you in your Garage after installing the new update! 2018 driver helmets will remain in the game, and you’ll retain any helmets you’ve purchased, but only the new helmets will be purchasable from Update 5.
Launch dates of updates are always subject to change, though we’re aiming for Update 5 to be live at the very beginning of May. It’s the biggest step forward for the game since last year’s launch, so get yourselves ready to change the game.
It’s been an incredible effort by the team to design and implement the new season’s content into an F1® game quicker than ever before, delivering on another request from our wonderful community – and the new-season content is far from the only thing to be excited about. Players have also been calling for some kind of ‘Career’ or ‘Season’ mode in the game, offering a long-term opportunity to race hard and prove your worth over an entire campaign.
Well, we heard you.
INTRODUCING: SEASON CHAMPIONSHIP MODE
Season Championship is the next step forward for our GRAND PRIX™ Events mode, which has been a huge hit since arriving earlier this year. After some off-season races, the limited-time events aligned with the real-world season, with a GRAND PRIX™ Event taking place during each race weekend. Each event has been self-contained, featuring one-off global leaderboards and prizes – until now.
Season Championship combines all GRAND PRIX™ Events to give all players the chance to compete against the world, throughout this year’s championship. As well as the usual rewards at the end of each event, huge prizes will be on offer to the top racers at the middle and end of the season, including huge currency rewards and exclusive customisation items.
It’s a fantastic way to prove your dominance in the fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled world of F1® Mobile Racing. We can’t wait to see what you think of Season Championship, and to see who’s competing for the top prizes come the end of the campaign! Think you’ve got what it takes?
Before and after launch, we’ll have plenty more to get you acquainted with Update 5, including glimpses of the update in action and information on other new additions and changes. More ways to boost your progress and tweak your R&D setup are also coming, and we’ll be revealing more all week across the Codies Blog, social channels (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) and Codemasters Forums. You won’t want to miss it. ;)
