Is their a team sport in the world that is more about the individuals than F1? Codemasters explain this new mode in their latest Dev Diary found after Read More.
As suspected by members of the Co-Optimus team, the below Dev Diary sheds some light on a co-op mode that is both co-operative and competitive. 2 players can go online and compete in the same team for an entire season; their points will combine for a team victory. However, their can only be one World Champion!
