Codemasters has released its second official gameplay trailer for F1 2018, this year’s official entry into the long-running Formula 1 racing game franchise. This trailer uses stunning in-game footage with plenty of action taken from both on and off the track. It’s also accompanied by the new official F1 theme music as seen on the official broadcasts of Formula 1 on television, written by composer Brian Tyler – who has also worked on Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Fast & Furious films.

“F1 has undergone a huge visual rebrand this year,” says F1 2018’s Art Director Stu Campbell when speaking about the game’s recreation of the real-world sport. “It has an exciting, fresh new look and we are looking to bring that into the game as much as we can. Our aim this year was to create as big a visual improvement as we possibly could to give a more authentic and realistic experience. When you see it side by side with the 2017 game I think you will see a huge leap forward.”

F1 2018 debuts on Friday, August 24th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It takes advantage of the technical specifications of the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro consoles to deliver 4K and HDR visuals. F1 2018 also features all the official teams, drivers and circuits of the 2018 season, including the return of the Circuit Paul Ricard and the Hockenheimring. As well as this season’s line-up of vehicles, there’s a total of 20 historic classic cars from past years of the sport.
