First hands-on videos of Codemasters’ upcoming F1 2016 title are popping up on Youtube, allowing us to take a closer look at the title’s new features.
Non-surprisingly, most of these hands-on videos focus on the title’s revamped and extended career mode, one of the major changes that have been introduced to the franchise with this year’s edition.
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, 22-car online races, manual control in the pitlane and more.
F1 2016 will be coming to the PC, Playstation 4 & Xbox One on August 19. F1 2016 can now be pre-ordered here.
