Codemasters have revealed that F1 2016 will feature multiplayer championships with up to 22 players.
In F1 2016’s Career Mode, players select their character, helmet and race number that will stay with them throughout their time in FORMULA ONE™. They then select which of the 11 official teams they wish to join to start their journey, as well as which member of the team will be their team-mate, before taking to the track for the first race of the season. The higher ranked teams will have steeper expectations for the player.
The in-race experience has never been more immersive. Players will experience the tension of the Formation Lap as they weave to warm their tyres, before facing the drama of the manual race start, where they have to balance their revs and release the clutch at the right time. Get this wrong and players could jump the start and face a penalty or fail to get away from the line as the anti-stall kicks in.
F1 2016 launches on August 19th
