Patch 1.04 from F1 2021 Removal ray tracing from version PS5 From the game because it was causing a lot of problems for the players. With too many complaints about instabilities plaguing the game, Codemasters were forced to run for cover, disrupting everything. Ray tracing remains on Xbox Series X and PCs with RTX 20 and 30 series cards. It will likely recover once it becomes more stable.
For the rest patch 1.04 F1 2021 doesn’t do much other than fix the salvage issue. If you want to know more about the game, read our review in which we wrote:
We were expecting a very similar game compared to the last version, but we were pleasantly surprised by the contents and driving model that Codemasters introduced in F1 2021. We faced the new Braking Point adventure with loads of curiosity, fun and a sense of challenge, then launch ourselves into classic and more complex career modes. The steering model with the pad or steering wheel looked simpler at first glance, but in an effort to push the car to the limit, we were still able to enjoy a good level of the challenge. It also enhanced the new damage system, which increases the level of depth and complexity in the gameplay. The visual sector, while receiving a clear improvement on computers and on new generation consoles, still has room for improvement in the future. Also, all tracks in the official Formula 1 championship are missing, which will be added later with a free update. Finally, we would also like to commend the huge amount of options and driving aids that exist, thanks to which you can live a satisfying experience with any level of driving ability.
Before leaving, we remind you that F1 2021 is the latest incarnation of the racing game series officially licensed by the FIA, in the hands of Codemasters, then Electronic Arts. It is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and S.
