F1 2017 Challenges You To Make History

By Andrew Ogley, 3 months ago
With the release date for F1 2017 rapidly approaching, Codemasters has challenged all budding F1 drivers to make history. We already know that this year's cars are pushing the envelope on the tracks. We also know that there will be 12 iconic and classic F1 cars from the past, and that there will be historic versions of certain circuits, but Codemasters was not finished — there was some more history to be made in the new title.

F1 2017 - Steelbook Release

Codemasters has managed to sneak another little surprise into the title. For the first time ever in the series, players will be able to take on the challenge of racing on the legendary Monaco circuit at night. The historic circuit is already known for its difficulty with narrow streets and tight corners. Trying to race here at night will take the already demanding circuit to a challenging new level.

Aside from the 20 official F1 circuits and the new Monaco at night circuit, there are also short versions of the tracks in Britain, Bahrain and the USA. Codemasters has also let slip that there is still one more track yet to be announced.


Lastly, and in case — pun not quite intented — you missed it, this year's steelbook cover was announced for those who are interested in buying a physical copy of the game. Along with the new style logo, this year's cover breaks from the tradition of having only a plain cover with just the logo; it contains the image of the drivers on the front and racing on the back.


F1 2017 will be hitting the starting grid on August 25th.
