F1 2013

This 1988 car has no idea that The Cure are about to release their best album next year.

Hello there. You look like someone who’d like to hear that in order to get the full range of tracks and cars from an upcoming F1 2013 racing title from Codemasters, you’ll need to buy a limited edition pre-order version of the game. Yes, F1 2013 will be available in regular form (with a few classic tracks and cars) and F1 2013: Classic edition (with ALL of the classic tracks and cars … until some DLC comes out.)

There will be 10,000 copies of Classic released in the UK, and the breakdown of what’s in each version is a bit complicated so here’s the run-down:

1980s Content (F1 2013 & F1 2013: CLASSIC EDITION)

Tracks:

Circuit De Jerez – former host of the Spanish GRAND PRIX™
Brands Hatch – legendary former home of the British GRAND PRIX

1980s Cars & Drivers:

1980 Williams FW07B
Original Driver: Alan Jones
Team Legend: Alain Prost

1986 Team Lotus 98T
Team Legend: Mario Andretti
Team Legend: Emerson Fittipaldi

1988 Ferrari F1-87/88C
Original Driver: Gerhard Berger
Team Legend: Michael Schumacher

1988 Team Lotus 100T
Original Driver: Satoru Nakajima
Team Legend: Mika Hakkinen

1988 Williams FW12
Original Driver: Nigel Mansell
Team Legend: Damon Hill

1990s Content (F1 2013: CLASSIC EDITION only)

1992 Ferrari F92 A
Original Driver: Jean Alesi
Team Legend: TBC

1992 Williams FW14B

Team Legend: Gerhard Berger

1996 Williams FW18

1999 Ferrari F399

1999 Williams FW21
Original Driver: TBC
Team Legend: Alain Prost

Classic Tracks Pack (F1 2013: CLASSIC EDITION only)

Imola– former host of the San Marino GRAND PRIX
Estoril – former home of the Portuguese GRAND PRIX

 

Ok, actually that was less complicated than I thought. Everything 1990s is in the Classic version only. That’s pretty much it. There’s no indication yet how much this limited edition version will cost, but I’d imagine it’ll be either the same or slightly more than whatever the base game ends up being.

Both editions will, of course, have everything pertaining to the current Formula One season.

Here’s a new trailer to remind you that F1 drivers are all modern day Roman Gladiators or something.
