New F1® Mobile Racing Update Adds 2019 Season Content
Experience the new era of F1® for the very first time in Codemasters’ free-to-play racer
Codemasters® and Eden Games today added a major update to F1® Mobile Racing, their official handheld video game of the FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™. The headline of the update is the arrival of new drivers, teams and helmets from the current F1® season, making it the first chance for players to jump into this year’s thrilling championship.
Upon the release of Update 5, F1® Mobile Racing players will be able to browse, purchase and race with all 10 team liveries from this season, to add to the F1® 2019 regulation car, as well as all 20 official driver helmets. During races, players will race against the 2019 grid, including rookies Lando Norris, George Russell and Alex Albon, as well as superstars like Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen.
As a reward for existing players, those who have already purchased an official 2018 F1® livery from the in-game Shop will receive the 2019 livery of the corresponding team/s as a free replacement.
To celebrate the release, a trailer featuring Update 5’s content has also been released:
Since launching on iOS in October of last year, followed by Android shortly after, F1® Mobile Racing has quickly become a hugely popular handheld racing title on both platforms. Featuring a deep and competitive multiplayer mode, endless customisation options and high-stakes limited-time events, it hasn’t taken long for the game to become a leader in its field. More content and improvements are regularly added to the game – continued by Update 5, which also adds expansions to the Duel and Grand PrixTM Events modes.
“We’re incredibly excited to make another huge step forward with F1® Mobile Racing through this new update”, said Vincent Meulle, Executive Producer at Codemasters. “Bringing the official team liveries, drivers and helmets from the new F1® season is something we know that players have been eager to see, and we’re delighted that F1® Mobile Racing will be the very first place that players can get their hands on this year’s content.
“These new additions join an ever-growing selection of features for the game, which has already evolved massively since launch and will continue to do so. Adding 2019 season content is a big step for F1® Mobile Racing, but we still have much more in the pipeline for our players and can’t wait to reveal more.”
