Codemasters annuncia F1 2017: arriva il 25 Agosto, anche con le F1 storiche!


Recommended Posts

La Codemasters ha appena annunciato con il classico trailer di lancio, l'arrivo per il 25 Agosto del nuovo F1 2017, titolo con licenza ufficiale del mondiale di Formula 1. Le prime due interessanti novità annunciate dalla casa inglese per il titolo di quest'anno sono una nuova modalità campionato ed il ritorno delle monoposto "classiche", come ad esempio la McLaren MP4/4 del 1988 di Alain Prost ed Ayrton Senna, la Williams FW14B del 92 di Nigel Mansell e Riccardo Patrese o la Ferrari F2002 di Rubens Barrichello e Michael Schumacher, tutte protagoniste del video e screens di anteprima appena pubblicati.


Here’s what you’ve all been waiting for – today, we’re very happy to announce F1™ 2017 to the world! We’re also very happy to tell you that F1 2017, the official videogame of the 2017 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™,  will include the return of classic F1 cars, as well as an even deeper career mode, numerous multiplayer enhancements, and a brand new ‘Championships’ game mode.

We can also tell you that F1 2017 will release onto PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC (DVD and via Steam) worldwide on August 25th 2017.

Because we love you guys, we wanted to mark the occasion by releasing a trailer, showcasing three of the historic cars that will feature in the game: the 1988 McLaren MP4/4 as driven by Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, the 1992 Williams FW14B that was raced by Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese and the 2002 Ferrari F2002 of Rubens Barrichello and Michael Schumacher. These aren’t all the classic cars we have in store for you, though, and we’ll be revealing more of them to you in the coming weeks.

We grabbed Game Director, Paul Jeal and Creative Director Lee Mather to get the lowdown on what’s new in  F1 2017: “After an extremely successful year with the highly acclaimed F1 2016, we are delighted to be announcing F1 2017 and re-introducing classic F1 cars back to the series” said Paul Jeal, Game Director here at Codemasters. “Classics were incredibly well received when we included them in F1 2013, and in F1 2017 they are back and better than ever. With so many great cars to choose from, it was hard to decide on the final twelve, but we are delighted with our selection of some of the most successful and iconic fan favourites from the past 30 years.”


“For the first time ever F1 2017 fully integrates the classic experience into the main career mode,” said Lee Mather, Creative Director at Codemasters. “As part of your career you will be invited to race in modern day, invitational events in the different classic F1 cars throughout the season. We’re also adding to the variety in F1 2017 with the inclusion of four alternative circuit layouts, as well as numerous new gameplay types. The classic cars will also be available to play in a range of other game modes, including online multiplayer modes and time trial.”

After seeing the stunning new car designs (not forgetting the liveries, of course), with the lap-record-breaking performance levels to match, the 2017 season has seen a huge number of changes to the sport. With the Spanish Grand Prix just behind us, it’s safe to say that the opening races of the season have been absolutely thrilling, as Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport’s Lewis Hamilton and Scuderia Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel battle it out at the top of the Championship, and Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen continuing to excite fans around the world.


We’ve also got another treat for you: if you pre-order or purchase ‘Day One’ copies of F1 2017, you’ll have exclusive access to the iconic 1988 McLaren MP4/4, as part of the ‘F1 2017 Special Edition.’ The McLaren MP4/4 car will be available to be purchased at a later date, and the eleven other classic cars are available in all editions of the game. The best bit is that you can pre-order on Steam right now – all you need to do is check out F1 2017’s Steam page right here.


We’ve got plenty more news to share with you, so make sure you follow us here on the blog, on our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for all the latest news and videos. You can also check out the games’s very own website here.

What has been the biggest change in F1 2017?

Mather: Where do I start? From the major technical changes in the sport, the incredible range of iconic Formula 1 cars, the continued expansion of the Career mode, to the track updates and refinements and the inclusion of the new ‘Championships’ game mode, there’s no shortage of exciting changes and additions in F1 2017. And those are just the ones we’re talking about now. We can’t wait to start talking about things in more detail over the coming months in the run up to release.

La confezione Steelbook

You’ve seen it in pictures, but today we can reveal this year’s fantastic Steelbook™ design for F1™ 2017, the official videogame of the 2017 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™.

This year, we have the official key art on the Steelbook in all its glory, with the eight drivers that appear on our “global” key art that you’d have seen on our social channels, like our Facebook and Twitter, website, this blog and at the end of the recent Max Verstappen trailer (which if you missed, or need a reminder, you can check it out here)

The more observant of you will have noticed that this year’s differs from the more abstract design ones of the previous years:

Whilst we are biased with this one, we think this year’s is a stunner!

As in previous years, though, you’ll need to check your local retailer for availability, but below is a handy list of the retailers by country that are already listing the Steelbook (so far)*:
