F1 2021 is the newest instalment in the fan-favourite series, and eager players will be happy to know that the release time for when it will come out on PS4, PC, and Xbox One is right around the corner.

Although returning drivers will be familiar with most of the series’ qualities, what makes this instalment better than the rest is its story mode. Described as a proper journey bigger than anything Codemasters have done before, it comes with a full narrative and CG cut-scenes worthy of Hollywood.

Whether you plan to play the story or just skip straight to the online mayhem, the good news is that you don’t have to wait too much longer to get behind the wheel.

Is F1 2021 on EA Play?

The publisher’s pre-order guide says that they’re working on making it available on the subscription service post-launch, but there’s no indication as to when.
