F1 Online – how to get beta access & feature overview

By Posted 19 Dec 2011, 14:59

If you have liked what you have seen in regards to the upcoming F1 Online game we can today confirm that people can now apply to gain access to the game’s closed beta, also while we are here we thought we would just recap about what we know about this game so far.

Those of you who want to gain beta access need to fill out this form, once completed you will then have to ask roughly 8 multiple choice questions to help Codemasters decide whether you are suitable for the beta testing. If you are lucky enough to get access to the beta you will receive an email.

We will now just remind you exactly what this game is all about, firstly this game will be free-to-play and will run in your web browser, this means that no installation will take place and it will run off the cloud. Despite being free-to-play we almost certainly expect there to be in-game purchases available.

In the game you will be able to race on all the circuits from the 2011 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, also as you would expect all the cars from your favorite teams will feature in the game, in fact if you check out this trailer you will see just how much attention to detail has gone into them, they are all instantly recognisable.

What’s interesting about this game is the fact that it is heavily based on management, rather than just racing, the aim is to ultimately win the championship, but creating a team, hiring staff, expanding your HQ and spending credits on things like wind tunnels will play a big part in your success. We can also confirm that there will be multiplayer races along with custom cars and tracks.

As you can see the game looks pretty interesting, we just hope that in-game purchases aren’t too important as other developers have often made games impossible to win without investing some of your hard-earned cash into the game, which somewhat negates the main point of a free-to-play game.
