There have been a lot of great games being given away for free these past few weeks. They’re certainly needed too as the world is still dealing with Covid 19. It doesn’t seem to be letting up any time soon, but at least gamers have plenty of free content to look forward to.
If you enjoy Formula One racing — with its adrenaline-pumping action and precision driving mechanics — then you’ll be pleased to know F1 2018 is now completely free through the Humble Store. It will remain so until Monday so if you want to get your racing on in one of the more realistic racing simulators currently available, head on over to claim your free copy.
Since this is the official video game of Formula One World Championship, there are plenty of licensed cars and tracks to enjoy. They enhance the immersion like never before, giving you the chance to experience what these races are like for actual drivers today.
The career mode is one of the best aspects of this latest installment. It has a lot of realistic elements and depth, such as media interviews that impact how your career shapes out. Do you stay humble and give short and sweet answers or do you rub your wins in your opponents’ faces?
It’s completely up to you how your racing career shapes out, which makes all of your choices count for something on and off the track.
F1 is one of the world’s most popular racing entities and Codemasters did a great job at bringing it to life with subtle details that you would find in real life. It’s clear this was a passion project for them. They got so many aspects down, from how rewarding the races are to the advanced AI mechanics.
There’s also a unique contract system in the career mode that is predicated on how well you meet your team’s goals. If you do well and surpass expectations, you can re-negotiate for something more substantial.
Fall behind and you’ll be hoping you don’t get cut. There are real consequences to your performances and that gives you all the more reason to refine your skills and perform great in every race.
Even if you don’t fancy yourself an F1 fan, this game has a lot to love. The graphics are just as realistic as the intense racing mechanics. And considering it’s completely free on the Humble Store, you can’t go wrong with adding it to your collection.
