Codemasters have today released the first official gameplay trailer for their upcoming Formula One sim, F1 2018.

This brand new and first gameplay trailer shows off the fantastic depth and feature set for F1 2018. The game is released on August 24th and let’s you experience the life of an F1 driver like never seen before. There have been so many improvements and features in the game this year, such as the career, classics and simulation. There has been a graphical uplift this year. Speaking about F1 2018, Creative Director Lee Mather stated:

This is the most complete F1® experience that Codemasters has ever created. The Career mode is the central point of the game and has been greatly expanded with the inclusion of pressurised press interviews that will directly affect your path through the sport. There is also far more flexibility for the player, including the ability to select your own rival and negotiate team moves during the season. The Career mode also expands the player’s research and development options, with each F1® team now having its own unique technology tree with differing strengths and weaknesses. What’s more, F1® 2018’s Career will also feature significant rule changes between seasons during the Career for the first time.

The game’s handling has also been reworked using real world F1® data to give us new suspension and chassis physics, as well as the introduction of manually deployed ERS. This all means that the cars feel great to drive and you can really feel the difference between the modern cars and the 20 classics there are in the game. There is a huge contrast between the low aero, low grip cars from the 1970s compared to the 2018 cars.
