    The new Codemasters Formula One game is due to the digital shelves in less than one months time and promises to go down in history as the most complete edition of the long running games franchise.

    F1 2016 will bring many new (and some returning...) features missing from previous instalments of the series. After much community outcry the team over at Codemasters have brought back the often missed Safety Car feature and include new the new for 2016 Virtual Safety Car technology into the latest game. Single player career mode has received considerable enhancements from previous versions and looks to offer a more immersive experience than seen before from a Codemasters Formula One title.

    Early comments from the studio indicate F1 2016 might be more geared towards the simulation end of the racing game spectrum, as it has been confirmed previously automated features such as manual pitlane entry have been included and a series first warmup lap are now available to enjoy in the new title. F1 2016 will also be the second instalment using the new Codemasters game engine, many will hope for greater optimisation and improved graphical fidelity in the latest release.

    No doubt in the build up to the August 19th release Codemasters will offer up more videos and information on the title, but to whet your appetite we have listed some of the recent trailers and gameplay videos for you to enjoy below...

  2. There's also a gameplay (somewhat) video in Spanish, but I think it's nice to check that out.

    Note that it isn't final list of helmets and avatars.

    Yes definitely, this time it really seems like a good game from everything that I've seen so far, a definite release day purchase. The feature that I'm looking forward the most surely has to be the return of career mode. If online isn't dodgy I might be looking into doing that more often as well.

    Yes I am looking forward to this.
    I am disillusioned with online racing at this time so I crave a good offline experience with more detail. If it improves on F1 2013 edition (the best one in my opinion) then I will be happy. As a long time F1 fan I really hope this one satisfies my F1 race urge.:thumbsup: I already have my Thrustmaster F1 wheel fitted and ready in hope.

    @jimortality you will love it with your rift mate.;)

    Definitely not buying in blind, but I am cautiously optimistic.

    If the reviews and opinions are good, i'll add it to the steam wishlist and wait for a good sale a couple of months later :cool:

  7. Looks like they borrowed on ideas from the Milestone SBK games and expanded on them, also furthering what was available in F1 2006 CE.

    Current F1 is the ultimate joke! Can't imagine anyone seriously looking forward to drive those cars.

    Gonna wait for reviews to see how earnest they are about the simulation aspects and how fleshed out career mode actually is. Probably something for a Steam sale.
