Today, Codemasters and Deep Silver began a four-part developer diary series that will lead up to the release of F1 2018, scheduled for release on August 24. Part one of the diary series revealed details inside the game’s career mode.
Gamers will now face difficult questions in interviews during career mode. According to the diary, “The influence of their choices will ripple through their team while altering potential upcoming offers and deals.”
Interviews will occur at key moments during the driver’s career, and the answers you select can have any number of outcomes or consequences. F1 2018 is introducing a new reporter character, Claire, who will conduct all interviews and interactions with the press in career mode.
Additionally, answers can alter the motivation of departments in your own team, which can change the price or reliability of upgrades and any negotiations with other racing teams.
“The media are going to play a huge part in the player’s career,” said F1 2018’s Game Director, Lee Mather. “It’s super important for a driver to not just be skilled on track. It’s all about being the complete package. The player is going to need to consider how their answers impact the morale of their team and also how other teams in the paddock perceive them.”
Interview answers over the course of your driver’s career will develop his personality, popularity, standing within F1 and relationship with his team. Interviews take place in a variety of locations.
Details of further enhancements to the career mode will be unveiled in part two of the developer diary series.
