    Having just returned from some "time-out", I would like to ask: when is Feral's F1 2013 Classic Edition going to be released? Thanks.

    Last year, F1 2012 came out on 9/21 for Xbox, PS3, and PC. The Mac release did not show up until December 20th.

    I would expect the sameish timeframe for this one, possilbly sooner or later depending on what the demand for the game was when it was released for Mac.

    Have Feral even announced that they are doing F1 2013?

    They have not officially announced it, but it is on their upcoming games radar. It is only a matter of time until they have a release date.

    Has it been dropped now? No longer on the radar.

    Nothing has changed the radar pickups pop in and out depending on atmospheric conditions.

    [OS X] Release date for F1 2013 Classic Edition?

    Any news on that release date yet?

    the Feral site keeps saying coming out soon without any dates...

    It's now mid february... they're taking the piss... F1 2014 will be coming out on other platforms before F1 2013 comes out on mac

    That's the plan. Please note if you want online multiplayer you need to buy a Steam key from Feral or on the Steam client. The MAS version does not support RaceNet or Online multiplayer.

    Any knowledge about support for either racing wheels (fat chance?) or controllers like the Xbox or PS3?

    Racing with a mouse and keyboard kinda…. well… kinda kills the adrenaline and the atmosphere. :p

    Just like every Feral game of the last 10 years we support wheels and gamepads :) F1 supports all HID compliant wheels that follow standard definitions (almost all of them) and about 150+ gamepads.

    FYI Force Feedback is supported if your device has the right Mac drivers. Right now the only device with ForceFeedback support is the 360 pad. There are ways of taking Force Feedback from older Mac OS versions and adding it into Mavericks to allow Logitech wheels to have force feedback but we can't support this officially. It does work though. Our game is designed that if a device gets drivers in the future then the game will automatically pick up this and start using the Force Feedback in the game.

    Cheers for that!

    I will probably only play single player mode and/or LAN multiplayer (that does work then?)

    I love what you guys are doing!
    - F1 2012
    - GRiD
    - Dirt 2
    - Tomb Raider
    .. all great games!

    Can't wait for F1 2013, especially with "Classics". :)

    You are seriously bringing gaming to the Mac.

    Hi Ed,

    just wondering if this game will be Steamplay, or do I need to buy again if I want it on Mac? I assume it's not Steamplay, as it just says 'Steam' on the pre-order page, but worth asking!

    Yes, you will need to have the unofficial drivers installed so the 360 pad activates that aside good to go. Mac AppStore has NO online multiplayer that is a Steam only feature (due to limitations of Game Centre). LAN play is Mac PC on AppStore and Steam.

    Great thank you. I'm not interested in multiplayer anyway so may as well get it from the app store.

    Should I get an Xbox 360 or an Xbox one controller? and do you know where i can get the unofficial drivers? I'm new to Mac so even if i google it i'm not certain i'm downloading from the right places yet.

    You say the Mac App Store version will have LAN multiplayer….. between Macs and PCs in the same LAN? Please say so! :D (I have a mixed Mac-PC household).
