Ever since Codemasters acquired the rights to produce video games based on Formula 1, the company has produced a new title every single year. While you might have thought that the property would be in good hands with the developer of racing games such as Grid and Dirt 2, some fans became somewhat disillusioned with recent titles. In particular, F1 2015 was seen as a step backwards despite it being the first entry in the series to makes its way to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. A lack of game modes and features prompted a backlash that the developers would have to make up for in their next instalment.
While we already knew that F1 2016 was set to feature the most immersive career mode of any Formula 1 game that has previously been released, the developer has now revealed that the new title will include a brand new multiplayer focused game mode. The Multiplayer Championship gives up to 22 players the chance to compete in a full season championship via online play, something that has not previously been possible.
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.
