F1 2015 is free for keeps right now on Steam

f12015

Formula One fans should take note of this small window of opportunity where, not only can you play F1 2015 for free, but it will remain in your Steam library permanently. I’m not sure what else you need to read about it? You click a button and have a free forever game. It is yours. Like so many other Steam games you own, you never even have to install it. It can remain on a list that haunts you, reminding you of Steam sales gone by where you spent hard earned money for digital experiences you’ll never even find the time to touch; entire worlds you’ve promised to visit but will ignore, casting them into some electronic purgatory from whence they cry out to you in the night.

Anyhow, this is a game about racing cars. They go real fast.

** NOTE: …and just as fast as the cars, this free game promotion and sale have already ended. Well. There’s that. **

Zoom Zoom: F1 2016 Announced

Nyyyyyommm. Nyim! Vrooooim. Those onomatopoeias, and others like them, signal the whizzing-past of both cars and announcements of annual sequels. Which can only mean that Codemasters today announced F1 2016 [official site], the next in their Formula 1 drive ’em up series. What’s new and exciting this year? Well let me tell you! It’s bringing back a car that can drive in front of you for your safety and delight. Not even a Formula 1 car – just some old Mercedes-Benz pootling about on the track when it thinks the race will get too exciting. A ‘racedad’, I think is the technical term.

Safety Car On Track: F1 2015 Released

Codemasters’ Formula 1 racing games hit a bit of a bump in the transition to a new console generation, meaning that here on PC we saw F1 2014 towards the end of the racing season, as ever, but F1 2015 [official site] is arriving a lot earlier this year. Today, in fact. It’s out now (and that’s after a one-month delay. You can buy it and play it right now.

You Make Your Big Move: F1 2015 Talks Up New Handling

Codemasters announced this year’s Formula 1 game alongside last year’s, which looked a bit like a ‘Well, we aren’t quite ready for next-gen systems yet so how about if we just release next year’s early once we figure that out?’ gesture. With a June release scheduled, they’re now showing a few screenshots and talking about what’s new to F1 2015 [official site] other than flashier graphics.

Handling, mostly. The big ‘ooh let’s start talking about this’ blog post goes on about car handling a lot, which is probably important for a game essentially all about handling.

Nyyoooom: F1 2014 And 2015 Announced

That's, like, SO last-gen.

In the way that mood cycles can revolve around Christmas or birthdays, do diehard game fans slip into emotional rhythms around marketing cycles? Do Call of Duty fans start to feel excited around the start of May, fidgeting and laughing more than usual, expecting the announcement of the next annualised sequel? Is E3 why I grow increasingly angry and desperate to flee to a forest over May?

Late July brings announcements from Codemasters of their next Formula 1 race ’em up, which is why you may have been anxiously checking your phone and inbox. But as well as F1 2014, today they announced another game too. One breaking the rhythm. A “next-gen” F1 game is coming earlier than usual next year. What does this mean? And how do you feel?
