Testing, testing!

This is originally up here, but I've posted it as there's lots of exciting things we'd like to talk about!

With a New Year comes new beginnings, and there’s a lot to talk about as we head towards the start of the 2017 season – a swathe of regulation changes, very different looking cars, *those* tyres, and a new World Champion to look forward to just to name a few.

A new year also brought a new patch for F1 2016. For those of you who missed it, we announced that our final patch – 1.08 – has gone live on all platforms. You can read more here.

 Looking forward, the development team have been hard at work on the next project for some time now, and we can’t wait to share some of the fantastic new game additions with you. However in the meantime, we have several very exciting opportunities for you to get involved in the development of the game. Last year, we ran a very successful programme of community testing and beta tests, in which you gave us some incredible feedback that helped us shape the game. We’re very excited to announce that they were so successful that this year we’re not only widening their scope, but we’re starting the process earlier as well. So without further ado, we’re very happy to announce that our first beta test, where you’ll get to try out our new handling model, is being lined up once the season is underway, and as such we have 300 places per platform (PC, Xbox One and PS4) for those of you who would like to help us shape the game. Like that idea and want to help us shape the next game? Sign up here!

 In addition to that it’s Competition Time

 Have you ever wanted to have your work featured in a new Codemasters F1 game? We’re giving you a chance to design a helmet to feature in the final game! Want in? Great! All you need to do is download the template here, and you can start designing. There are a couple of guidelines you need to stick to: firstly, please don’t use any design that’s based, or uses, any existing real world or licensed designs, logos or brand wording and don’t use anything that’s offensive or obscene. We’d also like you to use only red, green, blue and black – this is for colour tinting purposes. You can find the full terms and conditions below, so all you need to do is scroll down for all the relevant information.

We’ll pick the best designs, which will appear in-game. In addition, we’ll be sending some lovely F1 2016 game merchandise to all those we pick. You’ve got until the 24th February to get your entries in to us, and you can email them to competitions@codemasters.com, tweet us at @Formula1game, or print your design off and post it to us at this address here: F1 Helmet Competition, Codemasters Southam Studio Lower Farm, Stoneythorpe, Southam, Warwickshire, CV47 2DL   We’ll be announcing the winner on our blog here at blog.codemasters.com – make sure you keep your eyes peeled!

    Slap me upside the head and call me a false prognosticator, but it looks like we are getting F1 2017 for consoles! Well I'll be damned !!!!!!
    If his unpleasant wounding, has in someway enlightened the rest of us, as to the grim finish beneath the glossy veneer of criminal life, and has inspired up all to change our ways, then his injuries carry with it an inherent nobility, and a supreme glory.

    where you'll get to try out the new handling model, is BEING LINED UP ONCE THE SEASON IS UNDERWAY. So we can expect it then!
  • dvcjoncardvcjoncar Member New Car Smell
    Just sent mine in. Hopefully get to bring in more people to the F1 community after the game comes out through a beta test opportunity.
  • carpacarpa Member Wheel Nut
    Already sent the application ;) As for the helmet contest, can we also use black and white for the livery, alongside blue, green and red?
