F1 2013 Announced, Standard and Classic Editions Detailed

Codemasters has officially announced F1 2013, the latest entry in its officially licensed Formula 1 series of games. This year there will be two versions available to purchase, a standard edition and a “Classic” edition.

The standard version of the game includes classic content from the 1980s era of Grand Prix racing, with five classic cars from Williams, Lotus, and Ferrari, appearances from iconic drivers such as Nigel Mansell, Emerson Fittipaldi and Mario Andretti, and two classic circuits, Jerez and Brands Hatch.

The Classic edition includes all of the 1980s content as well as content from the 1990s with six cars from Ferrari and Williams, appearances from drivers such as Alain Prost, Jacques Villeneuve, and Eddie Irvine, and two classic tracks, Imola and Estoril .

“The pricing difference is still being debated,” F1 2013 creative director Steve Hood told Eurogamer. ”For us the idea was that a lot of people in the community have been asking for a premium edition, and normally with a premium edition you get maybe a steel book, a USB keyring, those kinds of things. That’s not what we’re trying to do. We did want to incorporate the classic content, and there are a lot of deals to sign and that costs us an awful lot of money to incorporate.”

F1 2013 will be out later this year for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
