New F1 2016 Create Your Own Legend Trailer Released

A new trailer for the upcoming Codemasters game F1 2016 showcases new features, including manual starts and the Formation Lap.

The newest entry in Codemasters' F1 racing series, F1 2016, received a new trailer today entitled "Create Your Own Legend." The video is short, clocking in at only 54 seconds, but it details the biggest features included in the game -- including a deep career mode, realistic crash physics, and now the pace car and the pre-race Formation Lap, as well.

The beginning of the video focuses on the career mode, as the player driver meets from a first-person perspective with some of the most prestigious teams in Formula 1 -- including Red Bull, Renault, and Mercedes. The video then goes on to showcase the manual start off of the starting line, followed by tight racing across multiple tracks, including one in the rain at one point. A sign is also shown indicating the VSC (Virtual Safety Car) in effect to slow down the field.

The video ends showcasing pit stops and the Mercedes SLS pace car in action, apparently leading the field around on the Formation Lap, a new addition to the series. The video's description promises that the game will include support for 22 players in online races, the manual start, and the Formation Lap. F1 2016 is expected to release on August 19, 2016.
