Codemasters has made its annual announcement of the next F1 game, with the news that F1 2018 will hit all platforms on the 24th of August - the same weekend as the Belgian Grand Prx at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit.
(note: I only know that fact because Codies was nice enough to point this out in the release, IO am a racing ignoramus)
“We were delighted by the reception that the highly-acclaimed F1 2017 game received, and are extremely excited to be able to further build on such a strong starting point with F1 2018” said Paul Jeal, F1 Franchise Director at Codemasters in the announcement. “Over the past few years we have engaged heavily with our fan-base to understand what is important to them, and we cannot wait to unveil more details on features we know our fans will love. Career mode has been further expanded to immerse players even deeper into the world of F1 than before, with the return of a highly requested feature back into the franchise. We are also adding more classic cars, again listening to our fans as to which of the historical F1 cars they would most like to virtually drive next. Outside of those headline additions there are many other great enhancements to be revealed before the game launches.”
As usual, all the new tracks and drivers of this year's season will be present.
