What is included in this year’s beta?

The Beta for F1 2021 is essential a test to ensure the game is optimal and the vast majority of bugs found or eliminated. The game content itself has been completed, or nearly completed.

The beta will consist of a series of objectives which will be set by the developers. These will require participants to test certain game modes, or run specific tests within the beta. This will help the developers find any issues, and test for specific things.

As a participant you will be expected to report any issues or bugs that you come across, and you’ll do this via an exclusive F1 2021 Beta forum. Only beta members will have access to this forum and its primary goal is reporting any issues.

There will also be a number of surveys run by the developers, which will allow beta participants to feedback on certain aspects of the game. The overall goal is to attain player feedback to improve the game at launch.

The developers have stated that multiplayer game modes will be available throughout the beta, so they can test full lobbies.

Is the F1 2021 beta available on all platforms?

When you register for this year’s beta, you will be asked which platform you use. This leads us to believe that the beta will be tested across all current generation platforms.

Original Post Below from before the 27th April. This has since been updated now that the beta has been announced.

We’re getting to the part of the year where there seems to be a Formula 1 announcement every day. We are well and truly in the lead to the new Formula 1 season.

And typically, during this Formula 1 pre-season, we get our first glimpses of the new and upcoming F1 video game. So it’s only realistic to start thinking of that date when we get our hands on the new game, and get to play it for the first time.

And for many, the official F1 2021 beta will be the first chance to do just that.

How To Sign Up For The F1 2021 Beta

Last year, Codemasters used their forum members accounts to select those who got to play the official beta. So this year, we can only imagine they will use the same method.

So if you’re not already a Codemasters forum member, and don’t have an account. Head over to and create your account today. It’s completely free and should only take a minute or so.

Once you are in, head over to your profile page. You can do this by clicking your username in the top right of the forum page. Select profile from the dropdown menu.

Then, click on the button that says “Edit Profile”, which you’ll find just next to your profile picture, on the right hand side of the page.

A popup box will open, where you can fill out the F1 beta sign up form. This is found when you scroll down just below your social media info.

Once you’ve filled this section out, click the save button to complete your F1 beta sign up.

You may be required to do this again once Codemasters officially announce the game. If you do, just follow this process once again. Then it’s just a case of waiting to see if you get selected for the beta.

When Does The F1 2021 Beta Sign Up Period Open?

Until Codemasters officially announce the F1 2021 game, we wont know when the beta sign up period will open. My recommendation is to keep checking back to this article, as I’ll update it as soon as we know a date.

Until then, I’ll see you all on track in F1 2020!
