Upcoming racer F1 2013 will not require users to input online passes, MCV can reveal.
Codemasters first introduced online passes into its games in 2011. It's not yet known whether this is the end to online passes in all Codemasters titles, although with all and sundry now distancing themselves from the practice that seems likely.
We recently reviewed the VIP Pass activation system and took the decision not to include it in either F1 2013 and F1 2013: Classic Edition,” a Codemasters spokesperson told MCV.
Players will not be required to activate multiplayer functionality via a VIP Pass code and we have no plans to replace the pass with an alternative paid-for activation system in the game when it launches this October.”
Both versions of F1 2013 will be released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 4th.
