As part of the talk I’ve held with GamesFreeBall this morning, Lee Mather, F1 2019 director, said he saw the moment when a gamer pilot is tested on a Formula 1 car near.
& quot You say 10 or 20 years, I think that at the moment this is going on in eSports, it will be sooner rather than later, “explained Mather, who pointed out that Codemasters is working to increase the popularity of F1 at the electronic sport level. ” We have 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 cars; we’ve seen players make their way into real races, obviously not to single-seater […] so I think it’s closer to seeing an eSports driver, at least, 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 a 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 PC and will include, for the first time, the Formula 2.
