As part of the talk I’ve held with GamesFreeBall this morning, Lee Mather, F1 2019 director, said he sees the moment when a gamer extract driver is being tested on a Formula 1 car close.
” You say 10 or 20 years, I think that at the time this is going [esports], it will be sooner. ” Explained Mather, who pointed out that Codemasters is working to increase the popularity of F1 at the electronic sport level. ” We’ve already seen players driving real race cars. I do not think it will be long before we see an esports driver try on an F1 car. They have already had simulator experience, they have already driven other Formula One car; we’ve seen players make their way to real races, obviously not to single-seater […] so I think it’s certainly closer to seeing a pilot esports, at least, to try or experience what an F1 car is. ”
Among the novelties that F1 2019 will include this year, are ingame leagues that will give multiplayer enthusiasts the tools to organize their competitions within the game, as well as to the visible area of the main menu dedicated to esports There will be the qualification events, you can see the results of previous races, the standings and you can also accumulate rewards. There will be multiple cosmetic elements that can only be obtained by participating in the F1 2019 esports division.
F1 2019 will debut on June 28 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and computer and will include, for the first time, the Formula 2.
