In the gameplay video, the cast of F1 Race Stars speed through loop-the-loops, soar through the sky making huge jumps and charge through tunnels whilst collecting and using a range of fun power-ups to boost ahead or slow down their rivals.
In the sprint for the chequered flag, gamers can pick and choose from a range of power-ups, from calling in Wet Weather to slow the pack, deploying DRS to speed past rivals and sneaky bubbles to trap other drivers. If their car takes damage, gamers can race through the pit lane to get back up to speed, whilst a variety of different routes, boost pads and shortcuts will all slingshot players ahead.
An extensive career mode features three tiers of difficulty and includes both traditional Grand Prix competitions and a range of objective game modes, including races against the clock, gate challenges and more. Gamers can also dive into free play for a quick blast around their favourite circuit or enter Time Trial for the ultimate test of pace.
F1 Race Stars also includes 4 player split-screen racing, which can be combined online for 12 player multiplayer gaming. Gamers can also enter a range of on and offline races in teams to join together in competition. Extending the fun further, F1 Race Stars will integrate with Codemasters’ RaceNet, the free online extension for Codemasters Racing games, where players can track their races, rivals and rewards and join in regular F1 Race Stars community events.
F1 Race Stars is now available for pre-order and will be released on November 16th for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
