F1 2018 free trial races onto Xbox One

If you haven't had a chance to jump into F1 2018 just yet, you can now take a peek at the game with a free trial on Xbox One. Launching first on Microsoft's console, the F1 2018 trial gives players a taste of what it's like to participate in a full race weekend, including dealing with the press and interacting with the game's cast of characters.

F1 2018 Game Director Lee Mather explains:

The F1 2018 trial will give players the opportunity to experience the first full race weekend at Albert Park. Starting the season, the player will be introduced to some new locations within the paddock, as well as Carl, who will deal with your research and development, Claire, a new character and journalist who will ask you questions about our Career in between sessions, and Emma, who is your agent, returning to the game to keep your business and contract talks in check.

The trial also includes a look at the game's contract system, and players will get to take part in an invitational event at the end of the race weekend.

The F1 2018 free trial is available at the Microsoft Store (opens in new tab) now. And if you decide to pick the game up, it's available for $60.
