Codemasters has today announced the first of a four part series of developer diaries for F1 2018.
The first one reveals how you can make headlines both on and off the track and how that will shape the way you are seen in the sport. The first diary details how your interactions with the in game reporter, Claire will affect your career. Will you choose to exhibit showmanship or sportsmanship? Your answers can increase or decrease the motivation of departments within your team and can directly impact the price or reliability of upgrades.
“The media are going to play a huge part in the player’s career,” commented F1 2018’s Game Director, Lee Mather. “It’s super important for a driver to not just be skilled on track. It’s all about being the complete package. The player is going to need to consider how their answers impact the morale of their team and also how other teams in the paddock perceive them.”
Lee continued: “Certain teams may like to see a driver who is a great sportsman: demure and calm in front of the press, even under high-pressure situations, while others may want a driver who is more of a showman who can create buzz.”
Details of further enhancements to the career mode will be unveiled in part two of the developer diary series.
F1 2018 is due for release on 24 August on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
