Codemasters have dropped a new trailer for F1 2017 that teases players with what they can expect when the game releases next week on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Steam, check it out.
Lee Mather, Creative Director for F1 2017 commented: “We cannot wait for fans to play F1 2017. This is the biggest F1 game we have ever created. Not only do we have the addition of classic cars and a greatly expanded career mode but we have made a number of improvements to the online experience, including introducing spectator spots which should be great for league play. We also think that Championships is going to be a real hit with fans as it offers new ways to play the game with different rule sets and structures compared to the normal World Championship. It really adds to the variety in the game.”
Players can make history as they hone their skills and develop their car over multiple seasons in the Career. First they create their driver by selecting from a range of avatars, including female drivers for the first time, helmet design (including community created versions), race number and then the team they want to begin their career with. The Research & Development system is heavily expanded, with 115 upgrades now available, while the player also has to manage their engine and gearbox.
Players will have the chance to get behind the wheel of 12* iconic F1 cars from the history of the sport. The classic cars are also integrated into the career mode, and can be raced in both Single Class and Multi Class Races. Players can race the following cars:
- 1995 Ferrari 412 T2
- 2002 Ferrari F2002
- 2004 Ferrari F2004
- 2007 Ferrari F2007
- 1988 McLaren MP4/4* – (DLC car in F1 2017 Special Edition)
