Games: F1 2021 will run at 4k/60FPS or 1440p/120FPS in PS5 & XSX

F1 2021, now owned by EA, will be the first to debut with native versions of PS5 and Xbox Series X and will take great advantage of the technology of the new generation.


During an interview with Gamingbolt, Lee Mather, Director of F1 spoke about the launch of this instalment on the new Sony and Microsoft consoles. In that sense, the creative confirmed that the delivery for the 2021 season of Formula 1 will look spectacular and it will have the 2 options expected for the new generation consoles. This means that, on both PS5 and Xbox Series X, F1 2021 can be displayed in graphics performance mode at 4K and 60 frames per second, or performance mode, at 1440p and 120 frames per second.

As for Xbox Series S, the creative pointed out that F1 will only have the opportunity to run at 1080p and 60 frames per second, so the best options to experience the Formula 1 simulator will be on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

F1 2021 will debut on July 16 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC. 

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Today, Codemasters® and Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) announced F1® 2021, a new next-generation racing experience launching on Friday July 16, featuring the teams, drivers and circuits for the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship. Introducing a brand-new story mode, expanded Career mode with two-player option, and three new circuits, Portimão, Imola, and Jeddah*, available to all players as free** post-launch content, F1® 2021 gives players more ways to feel the emotion of competing at the highest level in the pinnacle of motorsport. F1® 2021, the official videogame of the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship, and the first to be published by EA SPORTS will be available worldwide on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

In Braking Point, the brand-new story mode, players take on an epic journey, as they rise from the ranks of Formula 2 to a shot at stardom in the world of Formula 1®. It immerses players into the glamorous world of F1®, giving a taste of the lifestyle both on and off the track: the rivalries, emotion and dedication needed to compete at the highest level. It also re-introduces players to the much-maligned Devon Butler, who makes his return having debuted in F1® 2019.

F1® 2021 expands its iconic Career mode with a new two-player option that allows friends to join online and play co-operatively or choose different teams and take rivalries to the track in synchronous race sessions. Each driver has complete control over their assists, allowing players of all levels to come together and compete. Career mode also introduces Real-Season Start, enabling players to begin at any point in the season with real-time driver and constructor standings.

Across all formats, returning features include driver-manager experience My Team, two-player split-screen, shorter season options for both F1® and F2, esports integration and accessible menus and handling. For the first time, F1® 2021 comes to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, boasting a visual uplift and faster loading times.

“Braking Point is an exciting innovation that has been years in the making. We are proud to expand the game experience and allow players to live the highs and lows of life in Formula 1® both on and off the track,” said Lee Mather, Franchise Game Director at Codemasters. “Braking Point transforms the game and puts players centre stage in the greatest racing spectacle on the planet.”

“We are creating more choice and new ways to play. Real-Season Start allows players to align their career to the F1® season,” said Paul Jeal, F1® Senior Franchise Director at Codemasters. “The addition of two-player Career brings new challenges to the iconic game mode. Players can now choose to play co-operatively and share in the success or compete and strive for personal glory.”

Players who pre-order the Standard Edition will receive the Braking Point Content Pack, a set of exclusive in-game items inspired by the fictional stars of the new story experience, and 5,000 PitCoins. Benefits for the digital Deluxe include seven soon-to-be-unveiled iconic F1® drivers for use in My Team, complete with customisation content, 18,000 PitCoins, the Braking Point Content Pack, and three days early access.
