Video game developer Codemasters has released a video giving an insight into the development of F1 2010. The newest F1 game is due out September for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
F1 2010 will feature a more dynamic gaming experience than previous titles, and we expect that the career mode will reach far beyond the mere racing aspect of Formula 1, but that doesn’t mean the driving won’t be superb. You’ll see all the teams, all the circuits, and refined vehicle driving dynamics, aerodynamics, and weather all play a role in recreating the race environment in its truest light.
Make sure to check out screen shots and package art in the image gallery to the right. Watch the first “Developers’ Diary” video for F1 2010, below, or scroll down for more details in the press release. We’ll be sure to update you with whatever important information we come across regarding this game. Needless to say, we’re excited for this one.

The developer diary also shows how Anthony Davidson, BRAWN GP’s 2009 test and reserve driver, has become embedded in the team to ensure F1 2010 gives gamers the ultimate FORMULA ONE racing experience.
F1 2010 is the official game of the 2010 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP™ and will include all of the official teams, drivers and circuits set to feature in the most exciting season to date. F1 2010 will challenge players to take on four FIA FORMULA ONE DRIVERS’ WORLD CHAMPIONS – Jenson Button, Michael Schumacher, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton – in a range of game modes, from quick-fire races to full Grand Prix weekends. Players will race wheel-to-wheel at iconic tracks including Spa, Monza, Silverstone and Monaco or, for the first time, take on high-definition recreations of the stunning Singapore night race and the dramatic Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi.
In production at Codemasters Studios Birmingham, F1 2010 is being developed on the EGO™ Game Technology Platform, an evolution of the engine that powered the critically acclaimed, million-plus selling Colin McRae™: DiRT 2 and Race Driver: GRID™. The award-winning, under-the hood tech has been tuned to recreate the unique aerodynamics and handling of 200MPH+ FORMULA ONE cars for players to feel the thrill of competing at the pinnacle of motorsport.
