Skin Tone in F1 Games

Recommended Posts

I have never played an F1 game from Codemasters but im considering getting one.  Question - in career mode - do they give you the option to adjust the drivers skin tone? I am hoping so as I am of African descent and would love to race a driver that looks like me.  Im not looking for a brand new F1 game - I have a PS3 so even F1 2014 would work.  

 

Thanks

Yes. They have preset faces with a caring amount of skin tones.

That doesn't necessarily mean the character will look anything like him, considering I can't find anyone who looks remotely like me among the numerous shades of white european drivers.

But those are the limits of not having a full on character creator.

@cpayne32 Is this just for 2014? or all the F1 game years in PS3

I don't think driver avatars were present before this gen of game. IIRC F1 2015 and up have the avatars, so I think you'd be out of luck with anything for the PS3.

F1 2015 didn't have them yet as it didn't have a career mode, so it's 2016 onwards.

Yeah F1 2015 was pretty bare bones, wasn't it?
