EA Sports and Codemasters are still hard at work with F1 24: Update 1.6 comes with small revisions and support for another peripheral for players to enjoy.

Just two weeks after the previous patch, it is update time for F1 24 again: Version 1.6 adds further adjustments and fixes to the Formula One game, including slight tweaks to handling components. For instance, tire pressure adjustments will now have a more pronounced effect.

The main feature of the update is the adjusted kerb behavior, however. The rumble strips are now more of a factor to take into account, as players will experience more instability when running over them. According to the patch notes, sausage kerbs in particular are now something to avoid, as they will lead to even more instability when trying to abuse them too much.

On the hardware front, owners of a Cammus C5 setup will be happy to learn that their wheel is now officially supported by F1 24.

They should have this game working fine by the time F1 2025 is released. What a joke! This is why each year should simply be an update with a smaller update price. Just like other sims do well, like AMS2, RRE, and ACC etc.

What if somebody doesn't have an F1 game? He'd have to buy a base F1 game from several years ago and current season DLC on top of that. How is that better? Either way somebody gets screwed.

Currently you get the most up-to-date version with a single purchase. And if you have one of the previous games, you're set until it makes sense to upgrade, which is usually 3-4 years later. Unless you're one of those who feel the need to buy the game on a yearly basis, but then you're part of the problem you're complaining about.
 
I hate to say it because I said I wouldn't but against my better judgement and nagging from my son I bought f1 24. Only bought in on xbox so only play with gamepad as the xbox is on the tv and no wheel set up. It's not that bad. It's an enjoyable game to play. I've never driven an f1 car for real so have no idea how they handle for real or how they feel for real but it does a decent job at getting a sort of feeling across.

The career mode is enough to keep it interesting. I've done more hours on it already than I did on 22 and 23 put together. Can understand some people's negativity because it is over priced as most games nowadays are and it does have some annoying bugs but overall it's nowhere near the worst racing game out there today.

No, like AMS2 for example, you purchase the lastest game at the full price. If you have the previous year's game, you only purchase the most recent update, which is like a DLC.

I just buy a twice as playable version for half the price at the end of the year.

You have any idea what the licensing costs are?
Half price won't cut it for the developers.
But it's many, many, many millions of dollars.
It makes the rest of the development look cheap.
