What would be NEW in F1 2014???

Recommended Posts

Codemasters have announced F1 2014...yeah but what we knew about the game???
F1 2014 would be include a easy mode, hopefully that doesn't mean that Legend AI would be slower.
A option for a shorter Career, expanded Scenario Mode, Refined Handling, YDT is gone.
I will never use easy mode or shorter Career and i don't miss YDT.

But i would to know what would be NEW???
Besides of Cars, Tracks and Drivers and the ERS because we have expect that from an official f1 game.

And there are the main Questions:

Legend AI better?
Harder fights with AI?
Maybe a new Difficulty for us Wheel drivers?
Would damage be increased or have you still not the permission to do that?
Is the Coop Mode still in game? (I want to race a full weekend with my mate)
Maybe a new Rival mode, same as coop but with different teams?
Can you load your Setup for Short Qualyfing?
Is Ghosting still be there in Online Races? (I don't want that in Coop)

Steve Hood said once that this community makes up 0,01% of the people who plays F1 and it is not important what we want.
Therefore I do not expect much from CM, because the Real F1 doesn't listen to their fans too.

I'm just disappointed by what CM has done so far and would like that CM finally doing the right thing.

The AI needs to be improved at the first corner, even on Legend difficulty they're a complete joke. I'd hate to see a video of someone struggling against the easy difficult that's in the game atm. They must be a bit challenged upstairs tbh.

Indeed but the easy mode is for casual players to get to grips with the game and for people with disabilities like myself and @dangerousbrian0. TBH I'm pleased they've redone the difficulty settings as they did need redoing after 2013. It sounds to me though that they're throwing more behind the 2015 next gen game rather than focusing a lot on giving us  features for 2014 which given they plan on earlier releases from now on is probably the right move. I'd like to see some changes for the career mode but I'm not holding my breath on that. It sounds like they've just added the option for shorter seasons whereas I was hoping for something more there this is a little disappointing but maybe I'll be proven wrong.

I hate the fact that the AI backs out of everything when you are near them. They should be a lot more aggressive!

I find them plenty aggressive in 2013 too aggressive in places tbh. Besides F1 racing isn't generally that aggressive given the cars can be easily broken in real life I think they struck the balance right. Off the start line they could do with tweaking perhaps but in general racing conditions I think they've got it right.

yes there are aggressive moments but they're generally few and far between though it's not like you see these things happening in every single race.

I'm driving on Legend since 2010.

In F1 2013 the AI on Legend is ok but not good enough.

Here are some points that should be improved:

If you inside in a corner besides the AI and let them enough space the AI still ends in the gravel.

The AI doesn't try to outbrake you, if there are inside a corner the AI would brake to early and too much  and mostly nearly stand still.

A good fight with the AI is rarely, even if you are a fair and good driver.

If CM get it right after 5 year of developing i'm glad but i have no hope.

That's what I meant. Good fights are very, very rare. Most the time you are side-by-side with the AI they just back off and let you by as if they were being lapped. Proper racing is impossible if the AI keeps doing that.


I know that CM wants the game not only to be played by F1 enthusiats but by those who may have probably seen 1 or 2 races as well. But it's just not fun this way. If you compare it to other racing games (racing sim or not) you will notice how generous the AI is in here. 


I'd love to have an aggressiveness-meter like in rFactor but I guess the engine wouldn't allow that..

Manual Starts would be cool too but Steve Hood said already that he is against that idea many times.
Because he thinks there is no advantage.
Maybe he is right but what is if someone has a bad start...that's the point of having manual starts.
To gain advantage if someone make a mistake or fight back if you have a bad start.
But even if you argue like that, it doesn't change anything because CM drives their pigheaded line.

New Livery, new sound, Slightly improved graphics, a couple of new tracks, no classic content and more torque less aero.

had to wait till October for this, when PC users already had mods that did the same thing.

What a horrible thing to say... Some people aren't racing experts but like F1. Having an easier difficulty won't affect you in any way, so why go and insult people? Some people may have a disability that stops them from being fast etc... It always annoys me when people make comments like that as if they play on legend it doesn't concern them as they won't use easy. Games should be made for all skill levels, if they didn't and just had hard difficulties then gaming would die as many wouldn't buy it and devs wouldn't make money.

Sometimes it's better to think first before typing.  ;)

IT  would be good if CM  made a F1  game that worked out the box (whats the chances of that ? ) as its the  last version on xbox 360 and will be the the last ever game I buy from CM  IF I BUY F1 2014 at all  as I aint paying £ 300 + for a  NSA XBOX just to play next gen F1 ...

maybe the very easy is like amateur difficulty is on f1 2013 and amateur is like semi pro etc, therefore meaning legend is harder than it is now as there is no need for a level any easier than the current difficulty

Very easy will be more like how it was in the 2012 and earlier games where Amateur was then most likely. Because the levels were played about with last year and CM really screwed up so they've had to rearrange and regrade some of the levels which will mean we will all have a level we can play happily with.

I agree @Hughesy CM screwed up last year with the difficulties  that's why myself and @dangerousbrian0 and a few others spoke up to let CM know we weren't happy with that. I don't mind CM making the game harder for some people that enjoy a tough challenge because it allows more people to enjoy the game.It's always going to be a win/win situation for CM if they can do that right but they didn't in that instance.

 Being a simcade style game they can't forget to keep things relatively simple on the easiest settings though and have the assists match the pace of the bottom level AI. This way those of us that aren't as fast feel like we're in a fight and can enjoy and hopefully win the game too at a pace we can go.

IDK 'bout you guys, but I like the Very Easy and shorter career seasons. Makes it easier to get the trophys for career and never touch the mode again, if it's like F1 2012 &2013's.

I also like the idea of shortened seasons in career mode I hope they include it in next gen F1 as well.

looks like damage has been improved from the vid they showed. If you look at the part into casino square the sauber has light contact with someone looses the wing and locks up so maybe that has finally been made more realistic?? Id like to think they have finally sorted carrer mode out but from what they said so far it looks like all they doing is dumming it down more! 1lap race at the start of the game to decide how good we are? Shorter season 7 and 12 race if we want? I was thinking go the other way (for those that like a full weekend/season) start off at the YDT have plenty of laps to get used of the new cars, engineer explain r@d, setups, tyres, fuel, race weekends and so on. The cars this year are so different to drive yet no explaining how the races unfold with strategy for fuel/tyres. I do think the AI will be better as each year legend has slowly got quicker but cant see it being the 1-2 sec that the quick guys need on 2013. Lets just hope they have really focused on just the gameplay this year and not some fancy feature that is only enjoyable for a few hours. Keep saying to myself this will be the year they nail it :)

Have anyone of you heard if coop is still in the game?
On Steam there is only multiplayer be displayed.
I tried to ask it on twitter but get no answer.
Maybe some Dev arround who can clear this up?
I want to know if coop is still in the game and if something different in that mode??

I have learned that nothing is clear when CM doesn't say a word...remember 2012 (Championship) and 2013 (Practice 1 and 2).

If co-op is in F1 2014 I'd like to know if it will be available in split-screen & lan in addition to online, or if CM will still do the least logical thing and make it online only.

AI need be quicker on the first corner in the 1st lap , even on Legend difficulty.  The AI on F1 2013 were more agressive than previous version it's better , but not enough even with DRS AI struggle overtaking , it need to overtake completely and take some risk if necessary. 

Try to fix the bug , after AI overtake human then AI slows down significantly so human can regain position easily  it happend on Legend difficulty too.

Give to single player the option from multiplayer , like chose the number of AI , defining the no flags option for the rules too.

Make AI crashing sometimes in the same frequency as the real F1 , so humanize more the AI if possible.
