F1 2015 is finally out for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, and surprisingly enough the PC version is the worst one, according to fans that have bought the game on Steam in time for the day one or even pre-ordered it. It’s the second case in just a matter of weeks, after Batman: Arkham Knight.
Steam users have been lamenting issues for a couple of days, stating that the game has a weak customization of controls while playing with keyboard and mouse, input lag, lack of SLI support and overall bugs that mainly cause crashes.
Furthermore, there are missing features like the Career Mode as seen in the previous iterations of the series and the Safety Car, that simply has not been included in the game, even though consoles can now afford it in terms of raw power.
Someone even said after 0.5 hours played “thanks to Steam for refund option!”, which is pretty sad to hear since we are talking about a Codemasters game.
Talking about Codemasters, the developer’s community manager is discussing with fans on Reddit and sending a few messages assuring it is working to fix F1 2015.
“Hey everyone, just wanted to hop in and say we’re aware of a lot of the issues users are facing at the moment and the team are working on getting a lot of these bugs squashed as fast as possible. As always we really do appreciate your feedback and patience with us while we get these sorted. Thanks.”
Will this be enough? I mean, F1 2015 is not simply a technical mess like it happened with Batman: Arkham Knight: it’s lacking features. And it doesn’t look like Codies is willing to add them to the pack. What’s your take on this?
