F1 2013 Finally Steers Onto Mac In March
Strap on your helmet and start your engines, because Feral Interactive and Codemasters have today announced that F1 2013 is finally ready to turn the corner on Mac, releasing March 6 with a whole bunch of additional content coming along for the ride.
Released for consoles and PC last year, F1 2013 has had quite the lead-up heading into its launch on Mac, finally giving gamers on iPuters a chance to take on the FIA Formula One World Chamionship, as well as the ability to race classic cars and circuits from the sport’s long and storied history.
“F1 2013 features all the cars, stars and circuits from the 2013 season and includes all of the new rules, tire changes and remodeled handling to authentically reflect the challenge and exhilaration of racing 2013’s stunning roster of Formula One cars,” reads a statement from Feral Interactive, the studio that took Codemasters’ game and made it street legal for the Mac.
Additional content will also be available in the premium edition of the game, called F1 2013: Classic Edition. We realize that’s a pretty confusing title, as you’d think a “classic edition” would be the barebones version of a game. But it’s not…Just roll with it.
The Classic Edition contains two DLC packs right in the package. The 1990s Content Pack offers up six classic cars, as well as allows players to drive as legendary drivers like Damon Hill and Michael Schumacher, two names I’m sure mean a heck of a lot to F1 fans but mean absolutely zero to those of us who enjoy the games but don’t exactly follow the actual sport.
There’s also a Classic Track Pack in this enhanced version of the game, offering Imola and Estoril as additional courses for players to cruise down.
“F1 2013 offers Mac gamers a complete racing experience,” said Feral Managing Director David Stephen. “The Scenario and F1 Classics modes are exhilarating tests of driving skill, and the additional content packs contain decades’ worth of legendary Formula One content.”
The wording on availability is a little wonky, so hopefully I’m not going to blunder this completely. If you pick up a physical version of the game, it’s going to be the standard edition. Steam will have the regular edition, too, as well as the Classic Edition, while all other digital distributors will be offering up the Classic Edition. If you happen to end up with the regular edition, that extra content can also be downloaded separately, so no worries there.
Look for F1 2013 to arrive on Mac March 6 for $49.99 for the regular edition and $64.99 for the Classic Edition.
