F1 2016’s looking like a pretty well rounded package, and one of the cornerstones of this is the 22 player multiplayer. That’s looking better than ever, with today’s announcement of a Multiplayer Championship mode, which allows 22 players to compete against each other over the course of a season.
It’s a little bit more complex than just tallying each player’s score over the course of a play session, as championships are saveable, opening up the possibility of league play within the game itself. It also sounds like the constructors’ championship is being factored in, as it describes the ability to race as teammates or compete in different teams.
The announcement still feels a little light on the specifics of how it will work, but those who have been clamouring for the return of co-op championships might just find that this is a suitable surrogate mode.
Oddly, this isn’t the focus of the latest trailer for the game, which is all about the game’s career mode.
