“August is an exciting month for gamers everywhere. As usual, EA have released the latest Madden NFL game, which is the klaxon signalling the onrush of huge (and small, to be fair) games to start coming out. Upcoming months will see Marvel’s Spider-Man and, of course, October is Red Dead Redemption 2 month. But for the crossover fans who love games and sport, August is the start of something special. August sees the football season kick off again, with PES 2019 hitting shelves, but with the midpoint of the F1 season coming around, what better time than the racing game reigning champs, Codemasters, to release F1 2018.
This year’s game is released right before the Belgian Grand Prix, and while fans will be glued to the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit on the TV, they’ll no doubt be jumping onto their PS4, Xbox One, or PC to get their racing on right after. While this year’s game promises new features and an even better Career Mode, it’s the sim aspects we’re interested in, because F1 2018 is the ultimate racing sim, and here’s why.”
