Codemasters just announced the official Formula 1 game for the 2016 season, simply titled F1 2016. The game will be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PCs (both physical and Steam releases) sometime this summer.
“F1 2016 is a massive step forward for the franchise. 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.” said Lee Mather, a principal designer of the game.
The game will feature a few game modes, including a brand new career mode along a test mode, so players can play their way. Codemasters also said that the game will contain some features that have yet to be announced which, combined with already known features, will give players “the most complete F1™ experience ever.”
Based on the first announcement by Codemasters, the game’s biggest highlight is its career mode. The career mode will last for 10 seasons and will feature stunning cars, racing circuits, and more. The game will also feature this year’s Grand Prix of Europe circuit in Baku, Azerbaijan.

While we now have an idea about how the new F1 2016 game will look, but Codemasters has yet to reveal a lot of details about the game, including the official release date, the official trailer, and other features. As soon as the developer says anything more about the game, we’ll make sure to let you know.
Another game from the F1 franchise will certainly be a welcome addition to Xbox One and Windows. With titles like Forza Motorsport, and Assetto Corsa (coming this month) present in the Store, players really have the choice of the very best racing games to play.
