Codemasters has confirmed a global launch date for F1 2018 timed to coincide with the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix, promising an expanded career mode, more classic cars, and “many other great enhancements” for the next game in the series.

F1 2018 is the official game for the 2018 Formula One World Championship and will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on Friday, 24 August.

“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,” explains Paul Jeal, F1 franchise director, on the studio’s blog. 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.””

So if you like fast cars, this one promises to be a great ride.
