F1 2021 is free to play on PC and consoles this weekend
As the real Formula 1 is racing at the venerable track in Monza, Italy this weekend in order to continue the exciting fight for the championship between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, fans of motorsports can take a seat in a virtual F1 cockpit for free. Codemasters F1 2021 (from US$44 on Amazon) is free to play this weekend on all platforms, as announced by the game's official Twitter account.
The official Formula 1 video game is free on Steam, the PlayStation store as well as on the Xbox marketplace, which means that gamers can download and play the game at no charge. While PC gamers can enjoy the full version of F1 2021 on Steam for free over the weekend, console players are being offered a more limited demo version, which may stay available even after the weekend has ended.
Codemasters' F1 2021 has been released just two months ago, and the game of course features the most recent teams, cars and drivers from the 2021 F1 season. The career mode was massively enhanced this year, which is why the game received very good ratings, resulting in a current Metascore of 86 points for the PC version.
