New F1 Manager game lets you create your own team

The third edition of Frontier Developments’ F1 Manager video game will be released this summer, and will give players the opportunity to create a team of their own for the very first time.

As well as the option to run one of the existing 10 real world Formula 1 teams, F1 Manager 2024 will introduce ‘Create A Team’ mode, where players will have full creative control over the team, as well as the ability to negotiate sponsorship agreements and identify young talent. It’s a notable shift from last year, when developers told RACER it was not a feature they planned to bring into the game, while EA Sports’ F1 series has had a similar game mode in place since 2020.

The game will also introduce a new mentality system, which places emphasis on driver and staff personalities and demands and players look to strike the perfect balance as they strive for success with their team. Other teams can also poach staff or drivers, making this a crucial new addition to the experience.

Players can continue influence the races, but now with what the publishers are calling ‘new strategic perspectives’, while enhanced AI will increase the overall challenge.

And after its successful introduction last year, Race Replay mode will return, allowing players to relive real world scenarios from the 2024 season, assert their influence, and rewrite history in the virtual world. Frontier Developments will also reveal more in the coming weeks and months with regular Wednesday livestreams.

No release date has been announced for F1 Manager 2024 yet, but it will be available this summer for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for a suggested retail price of $34.99.
