F1 2015 is a video game by Codemasters based on the 2015 Formula One season, first announced on 31 July 2014.[2] The game's title was not revealed to be F1 2015 at first,[3] until 26 March 2015, when it was announced.[4] The game was going to be released on 12 June 2015,[5] but was pushed back to July.[6] being the seventh video game in the series.

F1 2015 features the 2014 season as bonus content, as well as in-game voice commands with the use of Kinect, PlayStation Camera or compatible PlayStation 4 headsets.[4] It is also the Formula One game by Codemasters to let players choose one of the drivers for Career Mode rather than themselves.[7][8][9] Plus, there is no appearance of the safety car and virtual safety car.[10]

DevelopmentEdit

Before the game was announced, leaked pictures of the game came on the internet on February 16, 2015.[11][12]

FeaturesEdit

  • Initially after the game was released on July 9, there were some differences between the initial version and the Day One patch:
    • The Manor team was not featured.
    • The McLaren had its early-season grey livery.
    • Most of the cars were based on the 2014 cars, but just with different parts.
