    F1 2017 Trailer Reveal.jpg
    Long running British development studio Codemasters have released a new gameplay trailer from the upcoming F1 2017 game, due to release in just under one month...


    Marking the eighth officially licenced Formula One game from Codemasters, F1 2017 looks well set to be the most comprehensive and feature rich Formula One game since Codies took over the official licence at the start of 2010.

    With a release less than one month away, Codemasters have put together a visually impressive minute and a half trailer for the new title, showcasing plenty of gameplay from the upcoming release:


    The new trailer represents confirmation that F1 2017 will allow players the opportunity of running all the various classic content together on the same circuit, giving gamers the chance to enjoy all of the 12 historically significant cars in racing conditions against each other. Quite how satisfying it will be to drive cars of different generations together on track remains to be seen, however it is nice nonetheless to see Codemasters at least making an effort to add some value to the inclusion of these golden oldies.

    Another different and slightly bizarre change for the game include the possibility to race Monaco in night time conditions (of which the real event has never done) and the addition of several 'short' circuit variations of the tracks that make up the 2017 Grand Prix season.

    To remind those of you who may have forgotten, the list of classic content coming to F1 2017 can be seen below:
    • 1988 McLaren MP4/4
    • 1991 McLaren MP4/6
    • 1992 Williams FW14B
    • 1995 Ferrari 412 T2
    • 1996 Williams FW18
    • 1998 McLaren MP4-13
    • 2002 Ferrari F2002
    • 2004 Ferrari F2004
    • 2006 Renault R26
    • 2007 Ferrari F2007
    • 2008 McLaren MP4-23
    • 2010 Red Bull Racing RB6

    Formula One 2017 will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on August 25th.

    Two things:
    1. Codemasters has good taste in music.
    2. Monaco at night needs to happen.
    If this is alright, I'll at least try it. If not, well good thing you can get refunds on Steam these days.

    it's impossible not to notice the front wing distance to the ground on some cars

    this topic was probably already beaten to death, but... can't "unsee".

    If the beta is any indication, the game has gone from SIMcade to SIM. Well, very close, at least. The sounds are much improved, as is the braking. They have worked on the physics very hard and did a good job, so I'm very happy. Too many positives to mention here, but now understeer is real and you can actually control the car in an oversteer+ moment with your feet (gas and brake equally) plus counter steer...always a good sign.

    Too bad we can't have DiRT-like wildlife running across the track and the drones are fantastic! :roflmao:

    Not here, but in private, absolutely. Just ask away.

    edit: Do you think the most popular driver in F1 is simply being ignored by Codemasters, or will not allow his likeness to be licensed? My bet is the latter. :laugh:

    I wish they would add the red colours to the Williams skin. I know there are restrictions because of the Martini sponsoring issue, however in real races they also only remove the Martini logos on the car but still use the red and blue template. Why can't Codemasters make that compromise, too? The simple blue and white Williams looks boring and takes away from the overall immersive experience. I had hoped they would have changed that this year...

    I was going to check out the trailer but after seeing how bad this model is, I've completely lost interest:

    So many smoothing issues on a single pic, that's awful.

    These are placeholder models, they will deliver the updated models in a day 1 patch.

    Why didn't Codemasters make the new liveries that was applied from the Spanish Grand Prix?

    Thats all great CM, but for the love of all the tiny furry squirrels, fix the damn helmets & don't give us some half baked cheap renders that a child could supersede with a 5 crayons & a sketch pad made from an empty cornflakes box. Just once give us an up-to-date, high resolution helmet package that has some artistry to it...

    You answered your own question technically. :D The main reason is, according to PEGI ratings, having any sponsors related to alcohol and such immediately taken away the E for Everyone rating. I know it sounds really petty, but it is the sad truth and the only way around it is 3rd party skins. If you're on console, you're pretty much SOL.
