Codemasters has released a new ‘Classics’ trailer for the latest edition of their Formula 1 franchise, F1 2013, that shows off the exclusive content that will be available in the ‘Classic Edition’.
For fans of Formula 1 of yesteryear, the Classics pack looks to provide some iconic cars, drivers and tracks from the 90s to join the current roster and already announced 80s classics…
F1 2013 Classics Edition
All your favourite drivers of the 90s have been bundled into this pack including classics such as Damon Hill, Nigel Mansell, David Coulthard, and Jacques Villeneuve. It certainly beats racing as Giedo van der Garde that’s for sure.
As well as this there’s also two extra tracks available, Imola and Estoril, if you want to party like it’s 1995.
To top it all of the 1976 Ferrari 312 T2 that Nikki Lauda drove is included for those who sign up to Codemasters' RaceNet community.
The Classics pack will only be available in the UK in a limited run of 10,000 copies, so we hope there’s news of it being available as DLC in the not-too-distant future, as it would be a shame to not get a chance to play around with it.
However, the base F1 2013 will come packing a simulation of the 2013 season, as well as 1980s classic content, including the legendary British grand prix track Brands Hatch as well as the Circuit De Jerez in Spain.
Alongside this the standard edition bundles in some of the greatest drivers of the 80s, including Alain Prost and Mario Andretti, for you to tear around tracks with.
Check out the trailer below to see some of the retro race-cars in action...
F1 2013 is due out on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 4, with the Classic Edition setting you back an extra £10 if you think it's worth a pop.
Do you think the extra goodies are worth the added investment?
Would you like a return to a fully-realised classic grand prix game like Grand Prix Legends?
