F1 2016 – New Previews

Codemasters have released a bunch of new previews of their upcoming F1 2016 title.

Codemasters have released a bunch of new previews of their upcoming F1 2016 title.

The previews show Red Bull cars in action on the Red Bull Ring, location of last weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix.

Aside from bringing all cars and drivers of the current Formula One season to consoles and the PC as usual, the new title will put a big emphasis on career mode as the title’s main single player feature has been vastly extended.

Career mode now now spans across up to ten seasons, introducing a new car upgrade system that is tied in with the title’s testing simulation component. Players can earn points to upgrade their cars by completing F1-style track testing sessions, simulating the development aspect of Formula One.

F1 2016 will also introduce full simulation of the Formula One safety car and virtual safety car rules, a first in the series.

F1 2016 will be coming to the PC, Playstation 4 & Xbox One later this summer. F1 2016 can now be pre-ordered here.
