F1 2016 will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC on August 19, Codemasters has confirmed.
The launch date was revealed in a new trailer released earlier today (below), in which F1 drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Jolyon Palmer racer around the game’s new Baku City Circuit.
“The video shows the two F1 drivers getting to grips with the new circuit, giving their impressions on the track and its challenges as they go,” said Codemasters. “The historic city centre, beautiful seaside promenade and impressive architecture all combine to provide the perfect backdrop to the new track – and it’s quite a spectacular contrast to see cars at the forefront of racing technology throwing themselves around a track enclosed by such a combination of history and 21st century style.”
Details on the game’s Limited Edition have also been revealed, with Codemasters confirming that it’ll contain a ‘Career Booster’ DLC pack designed to “give players a head start in pursuing their F1 career”.
“It also gives the player a ‘Research and Development boost’ that applies a percentage increase to all research and development credits earned by the player in each session in the new career mode,” Codemasters says. “Not just this, but exclusive Career Helmet and Laptop designs are also included within the edition too.”
