The up-coming game is seemingly so realistic, it features McLaren driver Fernando Alonso’s Honda engine blowing up
Codemasters has showed off a brand-new F1 2017 game trailer, which reveals the hugely-expanded career mode, invitational events and classic car races. Plus, there’s also a small amount of McLaren Honda trolling too.
The career mode is the main focus of the trailer. It’s clear a lot of time and effort has been put into making it even more immersive than the game’s predecessor, which already made huge strides forward.
Deciding to start a career in F1 2017 will now feature 115 possible research and development upgrades, a new character, fresh paddock locations and incorporating the returning classic cars into the mode.
It’s already been announced, but the new trailer gives us more information on the invitational events with the 12 classic cars – with overtake, pursuit, checkpoint and time attack challenges being a feature of the career mode.
There’s also four shortened circuits in the game, in Britain, USA, Bahrain and the newly-announced Suzuka circuit in Japan. Which, we’re excited to try out. And, after getting a glimpse of Monaco at night in the last trailer, we got an even more tantalising look in the newest trailer.
Codies also snuck in a few non-career mode features, most notably the same and multi-class racing in the classic cars. There’s two classes, C1 and C2, and it looks very, very cool with all the different classics on track at the same time.
F1 2017 is set for release worldwide on 25 August for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Will you be picking up a copy? Let us know in the comments!
