An F1 2018 DX12 beta build has been rolled out by developer Codemasters which can be downloaded through Steam.
According to Codemasters, this DX12 beta build is equivalent to the standard F1 2018 game of the same version number, and players have access to all content from the full game, existing save games should be compatible, and online play with DX11 counterparts is available.
“We have created a version of F1 2018 which runs using DirectX 12”, Codemasters wrote. “Put simply, this changes the way some parts of the game engine work, particularly the graphics code.”
“As this is a significant change, we would love to get to get feedback from you – our players – to help us identify any additional issues as we continue to work with and further develop this technology.”
We’ve included the instructions to download this DX12 build down below:
