Formula one gets ready to go over the top with F1 Race Stars
F1 race gurus, Codemasters, have today announced the next evolution in Formula One race gaming. F1: Race Stars, described as a fast-to-the-fun arcade racing game, will feature some of the best known current F1 race drivers. Already signed up are Lewis Hamilton, current Championship leader Fernando Alonso and current World Champion, Sebastian Vettel.
Scheduled to arrive in November 2012, the game will feature official F1 cars with official circuits including Monaco, Silverstone and the new, not yet completed, Circuit of Americas in Austin, Texas.
Codemasters look to have slapped on the playability too, with up to 4 players in split screen racing action and up to 12 player competition, with a career mode that will include a number of Championships.
Senior Producer, Chris Gray said
We’re really excited to bring the whole cast of FORMULA ONE into a fun new world of racing. We’ve really let our Art and Design teams off the leash to bring F1 stars’ personalities alive in a new way and create a game where racing fans of all ages can jump into all-action solo, split-screen and online multiplayer races. It’s the game we’ve wanted to create for a long time and, building on our strong relationship with Formula One Management Limited, we’re now able to bring Codemasters’ long-standing expertise in track design and AI to create a FORMULA ONE racing experience quite unlike any other.
Formula One will never look the same again. Check out how the drivers are integrated into the game with the first official trailer, below and some great looking screenshots.
