F1 2016 Announces Multiplayer Support for 22 Players
F1 2016, the official videogame of the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship, takes gamers deeper into the sport than ever before with 22 player online racing and the introduction of features such as the Formation Lap and manual starts.
Releasing on 19th August on the Xbox One, Codemasters says that F1 2016 takes immersion to the next level by replicating the real world sport like never before with the Formation Lap appearing for the first time in the franchise allowing players to experience the height of the pre-race tension and warm their tyres in preparation for the all important start.
With multiplayer support for up to 22 drivers, F1 2016 allows players to form a full grid of human players across the 21 circuits featured in the 2016 FIA Formula One World Championship, including the tight Baku street circuit, the latest addition to the calendar. In single player, gamers are able to create their own legend in the expansive Career Mode which stretches for up to ten seasons and includes drama both on and off the track.
