The annual F1 racing game, the only official Formula 1 video game, is due to be released later this year. Developed by long term licence holder Codemasters, the new game will be released onto Playstation 4, XBox One, Windows PC and Steam on August 25th.
According to press material, the new game will feature the return of some classic F1 cars, as well as “an even deeper career mode, numerous multiplayer enhancements, and a brand new ‘Championships’ game mode.”
A trailer has been released, which can be viewed below, showing some of the cars that will be useable in the game: the 1988 McLaren MP4/4, the 1992 Williams FW14B and the Ferrari F2002. More of the featured cars will be revealed between now and release.
Lee Mather, Creative Director at Codemasters, says: “For the first time ever F1 2017 fully integrates the classic experience into the main career mode. As part of your career you will be invited to race in modern day, invitational events in the different classic F1 cars throughout the season. We’re also adding to the variety in F1 2017 with the inclusion of four alternative circuit layouts, as well as numerous new gameplay types. The classic cars will also be available to play in a range of other game modes, including online multiplayer modes and time trial.”
