Racing game F1 2017 is now Available for the Mac App Store
Feral Interactive sure knows how to take care of us.
Not only did they secure F1 2017 for Mac. They released it on August 25, 2017, the same day as the Windows version.
And starting today, you can grab it from the Mac App Store too.
This is exciting for Mac gamers overall, including those who don’t care about motorsports. F1 2014 and F1 2015 never made it to Mac. F1 2016 did, but a few months late. And now F1 2017 does and on the same day as on Windows.
That’s a positive trend that I hope will continue.
Developed and published by Codemasters for Windows and consoles, F1 2017 grants players unprecedented access to the on-track and off-track excitement of F1.
Among the many new features, highlights are:
- A Huge Career Mode. The ten-year Career Mode includes practice programmes to help you hone your skills.
- Research and Development to provide greater control over the development of your car, and the ability to tune engines and gearboxes over the course of the season.
- A New Gameplay Mode called Championships.
- Invitational Events.
- Alternative layouts, and more.
Along with stunning locations, these features recreate the most complete F1 experience to come to macOS, with all the drivers, teams, circuits and cars from the real-world F1 2017 season.
F1 2017’s Mac system requirements are:
- macOS 10.12.5
- 2.0GHz Intel Core i5 processor
