Game news F1 2021: Codemasters presents the cast of its scripted mode
Posted on 6/30/2021 8:36 PM
Expected for July 16, F1 2021 will mark the return of the scripted mode, renamed Point de Rupture for the occasion. During three seasons, players will meet various characters and try to climb to the top, both on the track and in the paddock.
But what would a story mode be without characters? In Breaking point, the player character will meet various fictional pilots, with very different backgrounds and personalities. And if you are wondering, yes, Devon Butler, featured in F1 2019 scripted mode, is back in F1 2021. To help us see it a little more clearly, Codemasters has published a blog post, in which we learn a little more about each character.
The first presented by the developers is called Aiden Jackson, young Formula 1 prospect having obviously signed with Alfa Romeo. Very friendly, he idolizes his teammate, a certain Casper ‘Cas’ Akkerman, whose character is somewhat reminiscent of Kimi Räikkönen. Codemasters indeed say of him that he is “frosty and pragmatic”, and determined to take his team to the middle of the standings. However, unlike Kimi, he seems to feel some pressure as he nears the end of his career. For his part, the arrogant Devon Butler returns to Alpha Tauri team as the main antagonist. Despite his character and his escapades off the track, his performance in the race is well respected. By his comments, he will encourage the player to always be very attentive and focused.
For the last two characters, we come out of the tub to turn to Brian Doyle, manager of the Alfa Romeo team. His goal: to ensure that everything goes well in the team and in the race. However, while he’s very efficient when things go as planned, he tends to be very quiet when the going gets tough. Finally, Codemasters highlights Zoe Akkerman, l’épouse de Casper, desperate to support her pilot husband. Only she knows what Casper has on his mind, and therefore is the only one who knows how to deal with it and re-motivate it. To find out how all these characters will interact and how the three seasons will unfold, meet on July 16, or from the 13th for those who have pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe edition.
