The fall video game season is finally upon us, and holy crap has it been amazing. Forza Horizon 2 was better than I ever expected, Spania announced the GTA Spano will be in DriveClub coming out next week, and now we have the first official trailer for the F1 2014 video game.

F1 2014 is the latest addition to the franchised racing series from Codemasters. While the game has been loved by Formula One fans in the past, there are many who find the games boring, difficult and iterative. That looks to change this year thanks to a host of new tracks, new driver systems, and a difficulty-adjustment system that is going to make F1 2014 easier than ever to start playing. Thanks to all the rule changes that happened this year, like the move to smaller, turbocharged engines, the cars are much more different, and it should make the game feel fresh and exciting.

The only real complaint I have about the game so far is that there is no “next-gen” version. This will only be available for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game does look better than it did last year, but don’t expect a massive jump in visual quality. If you live over in the UK or the EU, you can grab your copy starting on October 17th. If you are a U.S resident like me, you have to wait a few days for the October 21st release.
