is not just about the racing. It’s also about immersing the player into the environment of a racer. If there’s something I learned about the new HBO series, Hard Knocks
, it’s that there is a lot more to a sports career than meets the eye. Codemasters is making their best attempt at producing a realistic experience as an F1 driver both on the track, and off the track interacting with media and fans.
Before the game's release on September 22nd, Codemasters has put together a gameplay trailer on the official website. You can take a look at the video below.
