Codemasters’ F1 2021 released recently for Xbox and PlayStation platforms along with PC, and though it’s been running well on most platforms, the PS5 version is a different story. The latter suffered from performance issues due to its ray tracing. As a result, update 1.04, which went live for consoles recently, has temporarily disabled the feature.
This is being done to “aid stability” for the time being and Codemasters is looking to “re-enable this as quickly as possible.” It will provide an update to fans “in due course.” F1 2021 is the first title in the series to use ray tracing for its cutscenes, replays and Photo Mode along with the front end. It remains to be seen whether this issue can be fixed for the PS5 version.
F1 2021 is also available on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC along with PS5. You can check out review for it here. Along with several changes to the R&D tree and other mechanics, it adds a new story mode called Braking Point, co-op Career Mode and much more. Stay tuned for more details on updates in the meantime.
