F1 2017 Linux version

Feral Interactive does its thing, again, and brings an F1 2017 Linux version out of the garage this week.

Feral Interactive are still plugging away, doing what they do, bringing as many games as they can to alternative platforms. This week, it’s the premier Formula 1 simulator, F1 2017, which gets a Linux version on November 2nd, 2017.

There’s also a new trailer, which looks suspiciously like the other F1 2017 trailers but, you know, it says ‘Linux’ at the end:

Still, it’s a rather splendid (if somewhat serious) racing simulator from Codemasters, which Josh enjoyed very much in our review. Well, other than the hideous uncanny valley animations of the career mode, which largely creeped him the hell out. But hey, it’s Halloween, so maybe some scary mannequins are just what we need right now.

Still, the racing in F1 2017 is top-notch, and the Linux version promises more of the same, just on a more open operating system platform. We’ve not had any word on the system requirements yet, but we’ll update this article when they come through from Feral Interactive.

The F1 2017 Linux version will be available from Steam, of course, and direct from the Feral Store for $59.99 US / £44.99 / €54,99.
