F1 2014 will hit stores this October, Codemasters have announced today.

The annual racing title will be available from stores on October 17th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC

F1 will incorporate this season’s seismic rule changes including: new aerodynamic regulations and turbocharged power units, new circuits, new cars, and new driver line-ups.

A new driver evaluation system has also been added as well as re-graded difficulty settings.

“This is the year it all changes – for the sport and for the game,” said Stephen Hood, Creative Director.

“There’s been a dramatic shift in the sport; the largest shake up in the rules and regulations for a very long time and the new power units provide a different kind of challenge, for both driver and team.

“By delivering all of these changes, F1 2014 will make for an exciting and refreshingly different experience.”

Codemasters also revealed that their 2015 F1 title will be introduced following F1 2014’s release.

Available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, the 2015 title will be released earlier in the F1 season in order to receive digital updates as the 2015 FIA Formula 1 World Championship takes place.

“Our title for the new generation formats will mark a huge step forward for the F1 series,” continued Hood.

“We want to be out there earlier in the season and deliver new season content updates digitally as the 2015 season progresses; it’s very exciting for the series and our players.”

A gameplay trailer was also released, shown above, as well as some screenshots, shown below.
