F1 2017 is Codemaster’s ninth instalment in the Formula 1 series that they have created since securing the rights to the sport in 2008. Unlike other sports franchises, such as Madden or FIFA, that have always been money-spinners, the F1 rights have had a checkered history. Plenty of publishers have taken a stab at them including the likes of EA and Sony but few have managed to make such a success of them like Codemasters have. With this latest entry in the series, it is clear that the developer has developed an even stronger relationship with the rights holders and that they have taken everything they have learned over the past decade to create what is arguably the best Formula 1 game ever made.
A brand new trailer has launched for the upcoming Formula 1 racing game from Codemasters. The F1 2017 gameplay trailer shows off exactly what players can expect to see fromt he game when it launches on August 25.

In particular, F1 2015 was seen as a step backwards despite it being the first entry in the series to makes its way to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A lack of game modes and features prompted a backlash that the developers would have to make up for in their next instalment.
While we already knew that F1 2016 was set to feature the most immersive career mode of any Formula 1 game that has previously been released, the developer has now revealed that the new title will include a brand new multiplayer focused game mode. The Multiplayer Championship gives up to 22 players the chance to compete in a full season championship via online play, something that has not previously been possible.
