    F1 2017 Force India Previews.jpg
    Love it or not, Force India went pink for F1 2017 and now Codemasters have immortalised this unique livery in these latest F1 2017 in game preview images.

    Due to make a public debut later this month, the 2017 edition of the Formula One game series has plenty of people on the edge of their seats in expectation. With all the preview information on the game pointing towards potentially the most complete release in the series to date, F1 2017 is already shaping up to be a potentially very solid title indeed.

    F1 2016 marked a substantial improvement over recent version of the game for Codemasters, and with such a strong base on which to build it looks very likely that the new title will take the good work undertaken in 2016, and expand upon it for the latest release.

    Set to include an extended career mode over and above what was seen last year, plus the returning 'classics' Formula One cars from the history of the sport, it is perhaps the actual modern day vehicles themselves that will be most anticipated by players looking to purchase the game.

    For 2017 the rule makers governing the sport of Formula One undertook a considerable shift from previous seasons, with wider, faster cars and more aggressive styling over previous years, massive changes should be both seen and felt by the driver when firing up the game. More downforce and lower laptimes, aggressive looking cars (yes, even the pink ones...) all piled on top of a refined driving model and deeper features could mean a bit of a win for Codemasters come release day on August 25th.

    While we wait to find out for ourselves, cast you eye over these new preview images from the Force India cars of Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez, seen in a number of different situations in game and really shining a light on the impressive looking graphics of this upcoming Codemasters title...

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

    If you would have proposed the idea to me pre season I would have hated it, but having seen the Force India with its bumpy lines in that light Porsche pink I have grown quite attached to it now :D.

    I like that Force India went pink, and along with McLaren having orange on the car again, the grid is colorful again.

    I'd let it slide since it's Haas's corporate colors, and their CNC mills all look like that.

    Until I study some stills, it's hard to realize just how much that shark fin ruined the muscle look this year could have been. Those cars are even more gorgeous than the new IndyCars, but until they get rid of the fins and coat hangers, it's not realized.

    Beta update is still unfinished, clearly. The handling is still there, but the setup impact has been dialed back to 2016. I think they are slipping in the controller "feel" for the release, which compromises SIM feel. If they screw up the beautiful feel, it will be the same as 2016.

    Looks like they're edited in an image editor. Concerning.

    Does it? I disagree. These seem like proper screenshots to me. F1 2016 on my pc looks damn fine too. Really looking forward to this I is....:)

    Game looks good and the feature set has me intrigued but I just couldn't drive F1 2016 due to it's lack of FFB feel with a wheel. Hopefully they have improved in this area to give the cars weight and to make you feel connected to the front tyres. If they have I will surely be picking this up

    Funnily enough, Lee Mather said himself all current screenshots have been made on a Photo Mode on PC (also it's PC exclusive, so yay). This and more info here, if you haven't seen it yet:


    Also, Lee also said CM will do a FAQ soon. I guess this or next week.

    Huh, fair play to him then, that's a neat feature to have.

    Telltale sign of you being too used to AMS and rF2's questionable FFB, especially the latter's. You're relying too much on the fronts and not at all on the rears.

    The FFB was fine in 2016. It got the job done. The feeling of traction in particular is absolutely awful in ISI-powered sims, something that 2016 does genuinely get right. It absolutely can be improved, but compared to how it was in 2015, they've already made a huge step forward, and if you still weren't feeling things like the weight and whatnot, that's entirely on you now.
