As loads of Formula One fans are counting down the days till Codemasters releases the much-awaited F1 2017 game, the developers have fuelled expectations by announcing some details that are sure to get people even more psyched.
The game will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on August 25, 2017.
For the first time since F1 2013, classic cars will feature in the game. Not only will a user have the chance to drive the historic cars in multiplayer and time trials, they will also be incorporated into the career mode.
Even the career mode is set to go “even deeper” than ever before, with the 11 classic cars — including the Williams FW14B and Ferrari F2002 – set to make for an even more appetising experience.
The McLaren MP4/4 from 1988 is the 12th historic F1 car and will be included in pre-order and ‘Day One’ copies, and will then be available to purchase later on.
Codemasters claimed that there will also be four alternative track layouts in F1 2017, and have ensured that “numerous multiplayer enhancements, and a brand new ‘Championships’ game mode” will also be available in the latest title.
It goes without saying that the new 2017 regulations, cars, liveries and drivers will be incorporated in this title.
Its predecessor, F1 2016, was well received by fans and critics, especially with its more immersive and detailed career mode, handling improvements and visuals.
“After an extremely successful year with the highly acclaimed F1 2016, we are delighted to be announcing F1 2017 and re-introducing classic F1 cars back to the series” said Paul Jeal, Codemasters game director.
“Classics were incredibly well received when we included them in F1 2013, and in F1 2017 they are back and better than ever.
“With so many great cars to choose from, it was hard to decide on the final twelve, but we are delighted with our selection of some of the most successful and iconic fan favourites from the past 30 years.”
