As a result, players are given an incredible selection of cars from authentic brands to choose from.
F1 2015 has two career mode for players. The first of these game modes is called Champion Season, and in this mode, players complete the tasks and rise to the top by playing in various events from the 2014 and 2015 F1 season. Similarly, the second game mode is called Pro Season, and in this too players play from the seasons 2014 and 2015, however, the difficulty in this game is much higher. This means that there is absolutely no help or guidelines provided to the players during races, and they have to beat the game with zero assistance from the system. This means that players don’t get hints, the tyre-wear system is more punishing, and players can’t view replays to see where they went wrong. This mode means that the game plays out exactly like an actual match in a season, and players have to completely depend on their skills and analytical thinking to win the race.
F1 provides a greater sense of immersion than the previous games by employing new graphics and physics engine, as well as a more realistically styled gameplay design. The graphics are upgraded from the previous games and provide more detail and a blurry look, which is experienced by actual players. Similarly, F1 2015 makes use of a tyre-wear system that can make players lose their edge in-game. Speeding along the tracks their tires may suddenly fail and all control if their vehicle is beyond them, which could essentially cost them the match. This teaches players to always stay on alert and not drift around carelessly or drive on grass, which could tear the tires. Such mechanics provide a sense of realism and on-the-spot exhilaration like never before. The main sequel to the game titled F1 2017 was released for multiple platforms on August 19, 2016.
