F1 2010 Launching In September + Screenshots

Wednesday, 10th March 2010 (2pm UK)

A new generation of FORMULA ONE games will come to high definition consoles and PC later this year as Codemasters today announced that F1 2010 will be released this September for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and PC.

As the official game of the 2010 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, F1 2010 will include all of the official teams, drivers and circuits from the coming season. F1 2010 will feature the return of seven times FORMULA 1 Drivers' World Champion Michael Schumacher, the introduction of several new teams, and the brand new Korean International Circuit that will host the 2010 FORMULA 1 KOREAN GRAND PRIX.

The September launch will see F1 2010 become the first official FORMULA ONE game to appear for Xbox 360 and marks the return of FORMULA ONE to PC after an eight year absence. The arrival of the HD editions of FORMULA ONE follows Codemasters' extremely successful launch of F1 2009 for Wii and PSP, which became a top five best seller throughout the past holiday period.

In F1 2010 gamers will take on the full, expanded grid in a variety of game modes including GRAND PRIX, Championship, Time Trial and an extensive, innovative Career mode. F1 2010 will also feature a highly advanced damage model, fully dynamic weather system and extensive competitive multiplayer options.

In production at Codemasters Studios Birmingham, F1 2010 is being developed using the EGO Game Technology Platform, Codemasters' proprietary tech that powered the critically acclaimed, million-plus selling Colin McRae: DiRT 2 and Race Driver: GRID. The award-winning technology has been further developed to accurately recreate the unique aerodynamics and handling of 200MPH+ FORMULA ONE cars. The tech combined with Codemasters' unprecedented access to FORMULA ONE teams and drivers will ensure that F1 2010 delivers the most authentic FORMULA ONE racing experience yet. F1 2010 will be released September 2010 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. (Culture, F1 2009, F1 2010, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

games need to come out like how sports games like NBA etc come out, at the START of the series not near it's end. And it's not like they'll take advantage of it and allow aero updates to the cars like how teams will introduce them throughout the year or simulate how the actual race went like if it rain in Bahrain it'll be so in the game

I know one or two of the circuits aren't complete yet in real life so that, plus wanting to have a good first impression are probably what lead to the September release.

I don't mind waiting an extra what...3 months or so, from the original mid-2010 release.

I wasn't impressed in the least with F1:CE. Aside from the weather affects on the screen, the game was sluggish and the camera angles were horrible (for a racing game).

f1 2010? I hate when they put dates on the tittle. Makes me think a version of the game would come out every year.

It *is* a multi-year license but this first next-gen offering looks to be pretty solid.

Actually this one will be the second next gen offering

Not counting F1 2009 on the Wii and PSP, it will be the first next-gen (PC/PS3/360) offering from Codemasters...
