Considering its earlier release date, Codemasters has included a miraculous amount of new additions which make the game feel fresher and more immerse than ever before. Wet-weather racing looks as stunning as ever and environments surrounding the circuits are crisper. It remains to be seen whether that statement stands after the game's wider release on Friday.
