Codemasters launches new Formula 1 mobile game

Codemasters has announced a new Formula 1 racing game called F1 Mobile Racing for iOS and Android phones, with a release planned before the end of 2018

The publisher of the upcoming F1 2018 instalment is working alongside Eden Games, most famous for the V-Rally and Test Drive game series, to produce the game.

Codemasters has released an F1 game on smartphones before, having produced F1 2016 on both iOS and Android.

F1 Mobile Racing's premise will also allow fans to develop and customise their own F1 car, a notable step-change from the main game series that has only allowed fans to work within current F1 teams.

"We're delighted to bring an authentic F1 mobile game to the Free to Play audience for the first time," said Vincent Meulle, executive producer at Codemasters.

"Formula 1 has a huge global fanbase and this bespoke mobile game will allow us to engage with a far broader audience.

"F1 Mobile Racing will feature all the teams, cars and circuits of the 2018 FIA Formula 1 world championship in an exhilarating, real-time multiplayer experience.

"We are excited to bring a host of fresh, new features to the franchise including the ability to develop and customise your own F1 car for the first time."

Codemasters has promised more details ahead of its launch later this year.

It recently unveiled the first gameplay footage of F1 2018, which will release on August 24 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
