Codemasters have released the first gameplay trailer for the upcoming F1 2016. Developed in-house by the Birmingham studio, it promises to be the most immersive Formula 1 racing simulator ever produced, giving players access to all new game modes and features.
The trailer shows off the brand new track for the latest Formula 1 season of Baku. The Azerbaijan circuit is previewed by Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull Racing and Jolyon Palmer as they race through the various twists and turns.
According to information from the publisher, F1 2016 will include a new 10-season championship career mode that will give players the chance to experience life as an elite racing driver. Extra realism has been added through the inclusion of the safety car and the virtual safety car, meaning that drivers will have to measure their efforts to ensure they don’t make contact with any other competitors.
“F1 2016 is a massive step forward for the franchise,” said principal game designer Lee Mather. “The new career mode sits at the heart of the game and allows gamers to create their own legend over a career that can span for up to a massive ten seasons.”
“Beyond improving upon the fastest and most thrilling on-track racing experience in gaming, F1 2016 uniquely offers the drama and vehicle development that goes on behind the scenes. A rich car upgrade system is fully integrated into a new and deep practice development programme which mirrors the tests carried out by the teams in real life.”
