Codemasters will release F1 2016, the latest game in their Formula 1-based racing sim series sometime this summer for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
F1 2016's new career mode spans 10 seasons and will take you deeper into the world's most glamorous, exciting and prestigious motorsport, both on and off the track. The life-like recreation of the sport will be further enhanced by the addition of the sport's iconic Safety Car and Virtual Safety Car, which have been written from the ground up, as well as the introduction of the challenging new street circuit in Baku, Azerbaijan for the 2016 FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX OF EUROPE.
The game will also add a way for players to test their cars on the tracks before they race:
Master each circuit with our track acclimatisation tests, test your tyres and hone your race strategy to perfection, all whilst gaining valuable Research and Development points to spend on upgrading your car.
F1 2016 will also include new hospitality areas that will act as the player's game hub:
In this area you'll work with our new, fully captured and voice-acted Research and Development Engineer and Player Agent to develop your progress both on and off the track. Earn Research and Development credits from all your sessions, from practice, to qualifying and the race, to spend on upgrading your car, and get ahead of the teams around you. To make it even more immersive, you'll also be able to spot other key figures from the paddock within the hospitality areas.
