F1 2016 News Post

Codemasters and Deep Silver have released the latest gameplay video for F1 2016, the official videogame of the 2016 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™. The new attract video shows action both on the track and in the pit lane, recreating key moments from the year and highlighting many of the game’s key features.

Available on August 19 for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC, F1 2016 boasts the most in-depth Career mode ever seen in the franchise which allows players to create their own legend over the course of 10 seasons. The player selects an avatar and number to carry throughout their career as well as the team they want to start with. Players are able to move between teams or they can choose to develop a team into a championship contender by working with their Research and Development Engineer and Player Agent to develop their progress.

The Formation Lap will be featured for the first time in the game’s history as well as the brand new Virtual Safety Car which accompanies the return of the regular Safety Car, a fan favorite. The level of immersion has been further enhanced by the inclusion of manual starts and manual pit lane entry and braking – all vital to avoid losing time, penalties and track position.

With multiplayer support for up to 22 drivers, F1 2016 allows players to form a full grid of human players across the 21 circuits featured in the 2016 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, including the tight Baku street circuit, the latest addition to the calendar. In single player, gamers are able to create their own legend in the expansive Career Mode which stretches for up to 10 seasons complete with drama both on and off the track.

F1 2016 Limited Edition includes the ‘CAREER BOOSTER’ DLC PACK, which will give players a head start in their career as well as exclusive Career Helmet and Laptop designs.

There is a gameplay video floating around now finally. Although it's entirely in Spanish from Eurogamer.

This game looks awesome so far.

It sure does. Aarva has some career gameplay videos up and so far everything I have hoped to be in the career mode been properly included.

Does any one have a particular team they will be starting their career mode in?

I'll be rolling with the Haas F1 Team for sure! That's one of the reasons I passed on last year's game and have been heavily anticipating this year's edition. It sounds like it's much improved in a lot of areas over F1 2015. I'm looking forward to it!

I will also be starting with HAAS. Really impressed with everything that has been done with career mode.

Ya I like the idea of starting with Haas or Manor. I think with the strong early season results of Haas they have been place in the '2nd' tier of three for the teams. That's a pretty big compliment for their first year.

Leaning towards Haas but also considering McLaren or Toro Rosso.

Will see how much of a step up Ultimate difficulty is but I imagine I'll start out on that in either a Manor or Renault

Going to start with Haas! Can't wait for this game! Looks like there is a co-op and online seasons mode too, I'd be interested in organizing a laid back OS F1 2016 league if people were interested.
# 11 Finn @ 08/02/16 02:10 PM
If all works as intended with online I'd be interested in such a league.

I think I'll probably start with Manor. That or go the Raikkonen route Sauber -> Mclaren -> Ferrari

league racing is a ton of fun, and it sounds like they've introduced a feature this year to aid leagues. Codies haven't gone into much detail about it yet but hopefully they release some more information on it in the next few days.
# 13 Finn @ 08/04/16 12:16 PM
Looks like they have released another Career Trailer and some additional info on Multiplayer Championship. Albeit the Multiplayer Championship info is brief just confirming really that you can host 22 users.

I get more and more excited every time they release a new video. I can definitely see myself putting in quite a bit of my time into this game!
