EA Sports F1 24: Codemasters Promises More Realistic Handling [VIDEO]

Electronic Arts and Codemasters are trying to put a marketing spin on how the game will be different from last year’s release, but given their poor track record in game preservation, it’s not clear that everything will be as they say.


The current big thing they are talking about is EA Sports Dynamic Handling (do they put the EA Sports name everywhere?), which tries to give players a more realistic feel: “Working closely with reigning world champion and Champions Edition cover star Max Verstappen, the new EA Sports Dynamic Handling redefines the feel of the car to deliver realistic and predictable performance across wheel and pad.

All-new suspension kinematics, an improved tire model, advanced aerodynamic simulation and new engine and car setup options enhance the driving experience. Cornering, rolling resistance, brake pressure, ambient track temperature, and variable conditions allow drivers to receive immediate feedback to maximize their on-track performance,” according to Physics.

The tracks have also been tweaked a bit, with the publisher singling out Silverstone: “Significant improvements have been made to achieve authenticity in the game. Spa-Francorchamps, Lusail (Bahrain) and Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) have also received a slight makeover. In the career mode, you can choose to drive an up-and-coming F2 driver, a legendary icon or a custom racer.

Codemasters Senior Creative Director Lee Mather said in a statement, “The new handling model, powered by EA Sports Dynamic Handling, will allow players to get the most out of their car, with authentic physics giving them the confidence to race wheel to wheel with their rivals. Our biggest Career innovation since 2016 delivers more of what our players want, with more variety off the track. In addition to new handling and Career innovations, updated tracks, new audio and a refreshed broadcast presentation make players feel closer to the grid.”

The more expensive Champions Edition of EA Sports F1 24 includes more team liveries, 18,000 Pitcoins (the game’s currency), F1 World Bumper Pack, and James Hunt and Juan Pablo Montoya (plus possibly earlier access…) The game will be released on May 31st for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (with Denuvo; they kept it even in delisted games…), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
