F1 2018 will have a more immersive career mode

Martin Bigg On July 5, 2018

If there's one area that's been lacking in current-generation racing games, it's the career mode. Codemasters hopes to change that with F1 2018 however, as the developer claims this year's game will have a deeper, more immersive career mode as the media will play a significant role.

As a new developer diary outlines, F1 2018 introduces new reporter character Claire, who will interview you 
at different points in the season. Questions can vary from contract moves, race performances, or your feelings towards your teammate or other drivers. How you answer will directly affect your career, as they can increase or decrease the motivation within departments in your own team, alter the price or reliability of upgrades, and potential offers from rival teams. 
 
“The media are going to play a huge part in the player’s career,” F1 2018's Game Director Lee Mather explained. “It’s not just important for a driver to be skilled on track. It’s all about being the complete package. The player will need to consider how their answers impact the morale of their team and also how they are perceived by the other teams in the paddock."

“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.”



The answers available to you will develop as your driver becomes more well known in the world of F1. interviews will take place in new locations in the Paddock and in front of the team and scrutineering garages.  You will also be able to approach rival teams about a potential move, switch within the season and select your own championship rival.

F1 2018 races onto PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 24th, and will also feature the return of more classic cars.
