Codemasters today released the final developer diary for F1 2012, the next game in the award-winning series, which is available now for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.
The new developer diary gives details of two of the brand new modes within the game – Season Challenge and Champions Mode – as well as delving deeper into the five year Career and Multiplayer options. You can view the final developer diary down here.
Discussing Champions Mode, Stephen Hood, Creative Director for F1 2012 said “With six FIA FORMULA ONE DRIVERS’ WORLD CHAMPIONS on the grid this year we thought it would be interesting if we made a scenario-based mode about trying to beat each of the champions across increasingly difficult challenges.”
Season Challenge allows the player to experience a full FORMULA ONE career in the space of ten quick races. They start at a low ranking team, select a rival and, if that beat that rival on track, they will be offered their rival’s car for future races.
Speaking about Season Challenge, Hood added: “It is about trying to replicate that career experience you had over a number of years in our previous games into a condensed format.”
F1 2012 is set to deliver the most accessible and immersive FORMULA ONE game for fans of all abilities. Players will feel the unparalleled thrill of becoming a FORMULA ONE driver with a host of new features, wide-ranging technical and gameplay advancements and extensive competitive and co-operative multiplayer components. F1 2012 will feature all of the official teams, drivers and circuits from the 2012 FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, including the debut of the 2012 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX at Austin, Texas and the return of Germany’s famous Hockenheim circuit to the calendar.
F1 2012 is developed by Codemasters Birmingham for Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 and Windows PC and is available now.
