F1 2016 features 10-year career mode
New game coming for PS4, Xbox One and PC this summer
The 2016 version of FIA Formula One World Championship, abbreviated as F1 2016, will introduce an immersive career mode in the game for the PS4, Xbox One and PC for Steam, which is coming this summer.
Makers Codemasters and Koch Media said the video game "will be further enhanced by the addition of the sport’s iconic Safety Car and Virtual Safety Car, as well as the introduction of the challenging new street circuit in Baku, Azerbaijan for the 2016 Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe."
Lee Mather, principal games designer at Codemasters, said, “The new career mode sits at the heart of the game and lets gamers create their own legend over a career that can span for up to 10 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.”
In addition, the press release tells of another feature: "To complement the on-track experience, and to expand the realism of the Career mode, F1 2016 includes stunning hospitality areas for each team that act as the player’s game hub. In this area they will work with their Research and Development Engineer and Player Agent to develop their progress both on and off the track. To further enhance the immersion, players will also be able to spot other key figures from the paddock within the hospitality areas."
Heck, every game needs a hospitality area. Imagine having that in Donkey Kong.
