F1 2017 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 25 August. 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."
The new game boasts classic cars and an expanded career mode. Online experience has been upgraded to now feature spectator options. "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" added Mather.
Career mode will let the players hone their skills and develop their car over multiple seasons. You'll be able to pick and choose your avatar's gender, helmet design (including community created versions), race number and then the team you want to begin your career with. Invitational events will see players race the newly added classic cars.
Championship mode allows players to experience unique race events that follow different rules and structures from the official Championship in both modern and classic cars.
