The F1 2021 game is set to be released on 16 July, and details of its new features have been revealed by Codemasters and EA.
The game - which will be the first to be published by EA Sports following EA's takeover of Codemasters earlier this year - will include three new tracks. Portimao, Imola and the new Jeddah street track will be available to all players as a free post-launch update.
Another feature is a new story mode called "Braking Point", where players can start in Formula 2 and continue on the journey up to Formula 1. It has been promised that the mode will "immerse players into the glamorous world of F1, giving a taste of the lifestyle both on and off the track: the rivalries, emotion and dedication needed to compete at the highest level."
The mode will also see the return of fictional racer Devon Butler, who previously featured in F1 2019's career mode as a fierce rival.
"Braking Point is an exciting innovation that has been years in the making," said Lee Mather, Franchise Game Director at Codemasters.
"We are proud to expand the game experience and allow players to live the highs and lows of life in Formula 1 both on and off the track. Braking Point transforms the game and puts players centre stage in the greatest racing spectacle on the planet."
Seven classic drivers will be integrated into the My Team driver-manager mode, though their identities have not yet been revealed and the mode will be unveiled at a later date. Michael Schumacher, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna have featured in previous editions of the game.
The game will additionally feature a two-player career mode, where friends can work through seasons together as teammates or as seperate competitors. Meanwhile Real-Season Start will allow players to begin the season at any time with real-time points standings.
F1 2021 will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, as well as becoming the first F1 title to be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
