PC videos of F1 2016 preview version

F1 2016 will be released on PC and consoles on august 19th, we could get to try the preview version on PC so here are some videos from the Baku circuit showing new features such as the formation lap, manual start and the return of the safety car.

Note: steering can seem abrupt and late or missed gear shifts, this is due to a bug in this version sometimes delaying the steering wheel controls.

I'm a big F1 fan, but this does not get me really excited.. I'm not really feeling the graphical style and the AI still looks a bit poor with the cars driving to much like trainwagons on rails.. But overal not a bad effort I guess..

Not impressed by the graphics since this is the PC version. It looks like there is a sharpening filter.

F1 2015 was good looking and I was expecting more improvements this surprising looks underwhelming. Not sure what happened here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6Eu2G0rHz4

Yeah, graphics are just bad all things considered.

About the game

    Sdarts People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Feels so much similar to Watch Dogs 2's mechanics, minus the best parts. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I understand what the developers are trying to achieve, but the execution leaves much to be desired. And make no mistake, this is a collect-a-ton open world first and foremost than a TPS game. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts are too predictable. Didn't have any challenge to it. But it's not all bad, the chatter between the team members is really nice and the customization is great. Graphics are very good, minus pop-ins. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Can't put my finger on why exactly, but if I had to guess is because the shooting is so bad, and in a TPS game, that's basically it. The areas you explore are really good, design wise, but the enemies (2 Hours ago)
