New F1 2018 video details a new career mode, media interview mechanic

Today, Codemasters and Deep Silver recently released the first of a series of four videos for the upcoming racing game F1 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on August 24. The video highlights the new career mode, as well as how media interviews will come into play between races.

The new developer diary details how your interactions with Claire, the new reporter character in F1 2018, will shape the way in which you are seen in the sport and directly affect your career. Will you choose to exhibit showmanship or sportsmanship? Your answers can increase/decrease the motivation within departments in your own team, altering the price or reliability of upgrades, as well as any offers you might receive from rival teams.

The answers available to you will develop over time as your character becomes better known within F1. The interviews will take place in new locations in the Paddock and in front of the team and scrutineering garages.

There are further improvements within the career mode. You now have more control over your destiny and can approach rival teams about a potential move, including the opportunity to switch within the season. You also have the opportunity to select your own championship rival.

Details of further enhancements to the career mode will be unveiled in part two of the developer diary series.
