You know, sports games don’t really need a story mode, but we’re glad they exist. F1 2021 is the latest annual sports title to go down this route, with its storytelling-focused brake point mode a big novelty for the next installment. In addition to the regular career and MyTeam, you will be able to enjoy a story mode with a whole bunch of characters on and off the track.
New details and screenshots have been released, and this thing looks cheesy as hell. You play as a promising pilot named Aiden Jackson. He rose through the ranks of Formula 2 and is about to start his very first F1 season. He is teammate of seasoned racer Casper Akkerman and rival Devon Butler, an antagonist returning from F1 2019. You’ll also meet team principal Brian Doyle and Akkerman’s wife Zoe during the story. You can read more about each character here – it really looks like Codemasters is spinning for a dramatic ensemble piece here, and we’re up for it. Bring the cheese.
