Codemasters as confirmed that its latest edition of the F1 racing series, F1 2017, will support high dynamic range visual output – better known as HDR in the buzzword heavy technology industry – but only for the console versions, which means PC users are going to have to sit the HDR party out for this one.
As for console users, as long as you own any PS4 model, or an Xbox One S or Xbox One X, you should be able to get HDR output without issues- assuming, of course, that your screen itself supports it to begin with.
“The game engine evolves from year to year and we are very comfortable working with it. The more we use it, the more we develop it and that helps push the game forward. With regard to HDR, we will support it on Xbox One S and PS4 Pro as well as Xbox One X,” Codemasters’ Creative Director Lee Mather told WCCFTech.
That apart, it does sound like the game will feature a number of other improvements over last year’s edition, too- classic cars, a more fleshed out career mode with a deeper R&D system, and the Championship mode, among other things. F1 2017 launches on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on August 25.
