F1 2010: On Track For Multi-Platform Pole Position?
After a pit stop with the Nintendo Wii and PSP in 2009 and a eight year long absence from non-Sony platforms due to licensing squabbles, Codemasters yesterday announced that the F1 franchise is finally being brought to high definition consoles. Available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC this September, F1 2010 has been officially endorsed by the FIA, so players can expect to encounter the full cacophony of drivers, teams and tracks from the impending season.
As with Bodycount, an upcoming first-person shooter announced earlier this week, Codemasters have stated that F1 2010 will make use of a modified version of the EGO engine to give vehicles unique aerodynamics and handling for seasoned players and a highly advanced damage model for those new to the franchise. Additional features include a fully dynamic weather system and Grand Prix, Championship, Time Trial and Career game modes.
Is F1 2010 destined for pole position or by opting for a September release are Codemasters imposing a drive-through penalty on themselves?
