F1 2017 now available for Mac

It would be clever to say, “Gentlemen, start your engines,” right? No? Wrong race, maybe? It’s sexist, anyway. Women are certainly welcome to start their engines, too, now that Feral Interactive has released F1 2017 for Mac.

Of course, there’s never been a racing game that Feral hasn’t promoted, but it’s rare we get our macOS version simultaneous with the Windows release. That’s what happened here, so a big thanks to Feral for working so hard to keep us side-by-side with our PC counterparts. And for racing fans, this is one to be excited about. Developed and published by Codemasters for Windows and consoles, Feral claims that F1 2017 is “… the most compelling F1 game yet.”

F1 2017 grants players unprecedented access to not only the on-track excitement of F1, but also the off-track dealings and vehicle development that goes along with it. The ten-year Career Mode includes practice programmes to help players hone their skills, an expansive Research and Development tree to provide greater control over the development of their car, and the ability to tune engines and gearboxes over the course of the season.

Along with stunning locations and vividly-realised team members, these features combine to provide the most complete F1 experience ever to come to macOS, with all the drivers, teams, circuits and cars from the real-world F1 2017 season.

F1 racing tends to lag behind NASCAR here in the U.S., but I think it’s safe to say it provides a more engaging gaming experience. Take a look and see if you agree:

I mean…dear God, did I see them turn to the right in that video?

F1 2017 for macOS is available from the Feral Store and Steam for $59.99. The Mac App Store version will be released later this month for $49.99. For more information, visit www.feralinteractive.com. Oh, and serious racers will also want to check out the lists of supported gamepads and wheels.
