Prior to hitting our digital shelves this summer, Codemasters have released a number of new videos and preview images for the latest Formula One title from the British studio. An on-board video from Silverstone, the location of this weekends British Grand Prix, and several in game screenshots showing off the 2016 content reveal a slightly improved graphical experience for players and of course several "new" features join the new release, such as safety car and an extended offline career mode spanning up to 10 seasons in length. Codemasters have recently revealed some very interesting new details regarding 2016 iteration of the game, with the inclusion of a formation lap prior to race start making its debut in the franchise. As well as adding more immersion and bringing the title closer to its real life counterpart, the studio have also confirmed players will be able to choose between the usual start procedure as found in previous versions of the title or selecting a manual race start, which brings back driver skill towards making difference when the lights go green. This is an excellent and much needed addition to the title and will no doubt be welcomed by fans as a step in the right direction towards a more simulation focused game for this, and future, releases. Also on the automation topic, Codemasters have also confirmed manual pit entry will be joining the game, allowing players to drive right up to the pit lane speed limit line and engage the limiter before bringing the car down to the legal limit for pit road. It is not yet known if players will be able to drive the car into the box or if it will still an automated process by the game. Work has also been undertaken to increase scope of the online experience for players to enjoy and F1 2016 will benefit from a full 22 car grid slots. This is a nice piece of news and will again go some way towards making a more rounded and enjoyable online experience with bigger grids and greater focus on players maintaining control of their destiny with manual race starts and manual pit entry included in the title.
