    F1 2015 No Career mode??

    Strange how you can compare the development time of project cars with F1 2015. It took Project Cars 4 years to bring the game out, F1 2015 is being worked on since 2012 so 2/3 years. F1 has a type of car, Formula 1 (or Formula A), project cars has 60 different cars or. Project Cars has 30 locations with variations. Project Cars has game modes, F1 2015 has not.  So Codemasters spent 3 years on the development of 1 car, 20 tracks, 1 game mode and an online multiplayer. And still managed to get it delayed...

    Announcing F1 2015

    Hah, remember this post: http://forums.codemasters.com/discussion/comment/72135/#Comment_72135 It was in the  Improving Codemasters Image thread. Our new Community Manager had a deck full of great ideas to launch and support the game in a better way. Interviews, video's, screenshots, gameplay. F1 2015 would be different this time around. They would draw attention to the game and get a buzz going. 3 weeks till launch and all we have is a name and 5 or so screenshots. This is becoming a joke and frankly, I'm starting to become so annoyed that a game publisher couldn't care less about the product they're making that the choice to really boycot this game is becoming very easy. They seriously need a hit in the sales to get the message across...

    I'm not..., However this forum is centred around the Formula One titles from Codemasters and not Project CARS... If those who want to talk about Project CARS then please go ahead, but the correct place for that would be the Official forum, Wouldn't you agree...? These constant references about PC isn't going to make a blind bit of difference to Codemasters, and once F1 2015 has its REAL reveal, Project CARS will be nothing more than a distant memory within this forum... ...and I know it will eat PC for breakfast! ;) And I know that as soon as F1 2015 comes out, you'll turn like a leaf, saying how awful Codemasters are at making games and that they should give the license to someone else. You are by far the most active member of this forum but your opinion about Codemasters and the game(s) shifts as much as you write posts...

    Can F1 2015 be close to Project Cars

    What I really like about Project Cars is that I started my career in Formula Rookie and really can work my way up in motorsport, in cars that handle realistically and a game that has a career mode.

    Let's face it guys. 2014 was already a weak attempt and F1 2015 appears to have even fewer content. Last year, I told myself not to buy the game because the effort Codemasters put in it wasn't worth the cash. And I couldn't help but buy it and almost immediately I felt stupid for doing it. I didn't gave the right signal to Codemasters that the game was not ok. I'm not going to be fooled twice in a row. This game seems to have only a season mode, ability to do separate races and a bit more fancy than last years game. The only way we'll have a prospect of a decent game is to give a clear statement as non-buyers of undesired result.

    Something I haven't thought about. Both F1 2015 and Project Cars are being published by Bandai Namco. Perhaps the lack of information is due to them for not wanting to have to much attention drawn away from Project Cars around the release date.

    While I agree, I would say that your "right" to free speech is very much limited to the fact that you are on a messageboard owned by Codemasters and they therefore decider whether or not you are allowed to spill your beans here. It's called property rights. On topic, I'm still holding some hopes that in further announcements the game will prove more loaded with features than thus far is being shared with us. But I have the same concerns as a lot of others here. We are cooking up a storm and 2 months away from release, there isn't the slightest hint of anything that could be described as a storm. Improved graphics and physics are normal consequences of the new consoles and grid sequences and a podium were in F1 games 15 years ago. And I think that might be indeed the reason Steve Hood left. He created a great first game and a solid base for the future with F1 2010 and it's gone completely the wrong direction. We are only the gamers of the F1 series and we're getting frustrated, can't imagine what it must be like to work on it every day of the week and seeing it go south.

    TeamVVV calling the handling much improved and towards simulation is big pro for me! It's starting to look good, this F1 2015!

    F1 2015 Information Thread

    @justbiglee,  @LiteralZero  Will there be a photo mode in replay? Love that feature on Driveclub. Can't believe how many time I've spent, instead of racing, pausing the game in action, heading into photomode and creating a lovely next-gen picture!

    Maybe everybody can stop crying about career mode until we know more about the different modes. We have absolutely no idea what pro season mode is gonna be like. Maybe the idea of a career mode has taken a different format and is re-branded as Pro Season mode. For now, I'm happy to hear more from @justbiglee in the weeks to come. Already have a feeling he's a fresh wind through the Codemasters communication. Active on Twitter and the forums, sharing as much as he can. Feels like Steve Hood did in the early years :)

    Far from it my friend, did you see my threads/posts in recent weeks...? However, which ever way you look at it, quite clearly the game has moved on. Yes, of course we haven't witnessed any gameplay/videos but, if they're as good as the screenshots then how can it be any worse...? It is Next-gen after all, built on an all new engine, and i'm sure given the current status at Codemasters and the troubles they've had, I very much doubt they would be stupid enough to carry on the road which they 'were' heading. Anyway, what difference does it make whether I pre-ordered or not, I can always cancel the order up until the release day if I wish anyway... C'mon mmpaw37, that's nonsense. All we've seen are 4 screenshots and a release date. You've been ranting all over the place about handling issues, bugs, features that you wanted in the game, how they've let you down as a customer and all of a sudden, because there is some news, you've turned around like a leaf. I've been critical as well. I like the handling in F1 2014, I think it could be better in F1 2015, I think the graphics can be a LOT better with the next gen and foremost, I would like the game to be much more of an experience, a bit like F1 2010 was. The comments about the broadcasting style, the grid and podium sequences are nice to hear but I would like to know more about the different game modes, and especially career and maybe even if there is a chance on DLC (classic cars, previous seasons, other old F1 tracks like Valencia, Turkey, etc). I was glad to see the announcement, I'm still willing to give them the benefit of the doubt for this years game, but I'm still remaining critical that they have to make a lot of ground up from 2014 to have a game that's up to the standards Codemasters should live up to and I hope that from now on, there will be a bit more buzz and excitement from Codemasters themselves to keep some attention and community going for the game.

    Is their some anti-aliasing still missing on these screenshots. When you see them in full scale, they look edgy everywhere?

    June, that's around the time we expected by now. Not that much about content. A pro season mode, whatever that may be. Screenshots look ok, but not spectacular I think. I'm looking forward to some gameplay now!
