F1 2016 is all done and dusted. Receiving one final patch in the first month of 2017, it's time to say goodbye to on-going support.
With Codemasters coming back with DiRT 4 this year, the last remaining remnants of a team still working on their currently released F1 game has called it time with the release on the most important patch yet.
While it may be sad to say goodbye to the support of your freshest take on the F1 driving scene, Codemasters didn't want to send you off on your own without a parting gift. And that gift? A patch that "Fixed tyre wear being incorrect following a pit stop". And that's it. So, if you were still hoping for an SLI fix, you'll have to figure that out yourself - whether it's widespread or not. Game still crashing? It's probably your system.
Clicking to 'learn more' about this hefty patch takes you to the game's official forums within the Codemasters network. In here, we learn that this very particular problem was affecting a large amount of you from at least October last year - when the last patch appeared. Identifying the root cause, the team warned that the fix was so deeply rooted in the core of the game that they rolled the minuscule patch out in a week-long beta test first to make sure it didn't break anything else.
Thankfully, it didn't. Or nothing stood out in that time, at least. The update it out for all, and the team is now fully invested in the next game. Any more problems? They'll be there forever. Want in? Go for it.
